Does the monastery want a threaded newest nodes?by demerphq (Chancellor)
|on Sep 22, 2004 at 18:03 UTC||Need Help??|
I put together the code that is currently in demerphq's sandpit as an implementation of a threaded newest nodes. Thing is so far there hasn't been much positive feedback (or actually feedback in general). It seems that most of the pmdevils are not particularly interested in it. This is fine of course, but before I totally abandon the idea as unwelcome I thought I'd give the public at large a chance to contribute their thoughts.
Its important to bear in mind that the code in demerphq's sandpit is strictly for testing (so don't expect it to always have the same code running). The fact that im drawing folks attention to it now doesn't commit me to continuing this effort nor does it mean it will ever go "live" as a standard site node. OTOH, if people like it and want it to become permanent then it probably will.
Suggestions and constructive criticism welcome.
Oh, yeah, its worth mentioning that at least some folks have had problems with the page when using older browsers versions. FireFox v 0.093 in particular. It seems that this is a browser fault as latter FireFox releases have no problem. But you have been warned :-)
update:No the current NN won't disappear regardless of what happens with this. Please include any suggestions you have about how it should be presented. Especially suggestions that would make it easier to style. Specific suggestions for how to represent the age are extremely welcome, I recognize that the size/bold thing isn't ideal. I intend to add time information as text, but I also want a visual cue to the age. I've been thinking of a color blend, but that needs to be context sensitive to the users theme.
