As for site design, i have one particular altercation:
i don't like working through nodes 10 or 15 nodes at a time. This
is a disheartening problem personally, seeing that if i post
a perl question i have to scroll through (right now when i
right this) 2000+ entries to get to my one! This is absurd.
If i were looking for other people's posts just to refresh my
memory or helping others that's fine to go through post by
post, but it doesn't help lusers and newbies.
There are 2 possible solutions to this problem, and, sadly,
i prefer both.
1) Put the last 5 newest nodes by joeUser on joeUser's home
2) Put in a way to go to USER SPECIFIED numbers of posts
(singular or multiple, with a `-' in between; ie 3 or 5-12).
i have seen sites that do this, it's a problem to fix with
already written code i'm guessing, but it shouldn't be
This is a completely user-oriented suggestion, but why do
i have to look at 2000+ posts? Are those today only? If
so then i have nothing more to say. If not, could there be some
kind of limit to how many posts are considered recent so that
one need not sit through clicking `Next entries-->' more times
than i found a use for perl?
By all means have an option to go back through older posts (up
to some other sane limit like a week or a day; i don't know
yet and haven't investigated the volume of posts made here).
It is quite useful to go through posts, i understand this.
But when reading posts, there must be some criterion
(i'm using time, others can be used as well) to reduce the
sheer volume of posts that need be gone through for many
of this sites locations.
As always, i could be completely wrong,
#It is amazing how many langauges do not capitalize the
personal pronoun `i'.
#Unlike the rest of English-speaking society, i choose
to follow the rest of the world.
