Let's talk alpha

Hey all, we have improved the mockup's performance a lot this week. Keeping in mind that this is an early alpha, what are you thoughts?

    Not sure if this has been brought up yet, but on the homepage there is no indication on which posts you have voted on. It would be nice if it functioned like reddit where it highlights the posts you have voted on in a different color.

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    Yeah I agree. I'll add this. The vote arrows to remain up or down.

    ability to have image replies :P

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    Formatting and mockup replies are coming. Image will need to be linked like reddit does.

  • Haredeenee 1 points 2 years ago

    but the thumbnail will showup?

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    which thumbnail?

  • Haredeenee 1 points 2 years ago

    lets say i link a shirt, will the pic of the shirt show up as a thumbnail as part of my comment

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    Shirt replies will be shown as an image in the thread itself. this will be used for contests

  • Haredeenee 1 points 2 years ago

    super duper, and also about the contests, what would stop someong frm upvoting their own content, and downvoting others. are you tracking ip's?

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    We have records of all that stuff, yes. We're considering adding anonymous comments too. Must be logged in to post a mockup though.

    Sorry, all I'm complaining about really isn't the worst thing, just pointing random shit out because I'm bored and I can. I can settle down some. It also seems that i can't reply to anyone's third comment in a chain, the option doesn't exist

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    Please point out everything you can. You may want to email me a list if you go that hardcore with it. That's what I do, then prioritize and send to developer. The third reply thing is going away, originally formatting was messing up on threads.

  • Gillafonte 1 points 2 years ago

    naw I'm much too lazy for that, you've commented on all I've seen so far, keep it up man

  • Gillafonte 1 points 2 years ago

    1. You know whats annoying, is when i hit reply, i actually have to type to reply. I don't like that at all.

    2. Could we maybe get a preview comment thing or formatting help option like on reddit? not a big deal i just don't really know how this works.

    3. The drag n drop still isn't working for me, it shows an animation like it wants to but doesn't do anything, still cant copy and paste url.

    4. We can upvote our own posts at least once, why doesn't it do that automatically?

  • Gillafonte 1 points 2 years ago

    see this shit looks ugly and un readable, maybe I'm just handicapped and can't figure out basic things past facebook

  • Gillafonte 1 points 2 years ago

    also i get notified when i reply to my own comments

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    Reply notification is on my list of changes. but is/was low priority compared to the lag we had earlier this week. Now that its gone, we can do this stuff. I agree with pretty much everything you said about comments. We hacked this threaded system together, it needs the most improvements.

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    What do you mean by hitting reply? How can you reply without typing? Not understanding that one. 2. Yes, we will be adding formatting and making commenting a lot better next. 3. I'll test and report this, thanks. 4. Just how it was dev'd for now.

  • Gillafonte 1 points 2 years ago

    1. I hit the reply button, then i have to manually click in the box to start typing. I guess I'm just used to every other site that doesn't do that. You also have to cick the top of the box and no where else

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    What browser and OS are you on?

  • Gillafonte 1 points 2 years ago

    firefox 38.0.1 and os x yosemite 10.10.3 also it's really hard to see which comments people have replied to when there are a lot like this. I mean when we get notifications, it was kinda hard to find this one.

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    Yep, check out the post I made on Alpha Version 2. New features, changes, etc is mostly focused around commenting.

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    Mobile optimization will be it's own project in the future. We have, however, tested the idea to "swipe" left or right like tinder and it's pretty cool.

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    People that join our alpha club will have access to our development goals and list. I might make viewing it public to everyone as well. We have a lot to do but let me know about things you don't like, bugs, ideas you have, etc!

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    This should have already been done but the entire page refreshing from an upvote needs to be fixed. Also, we are going to introduce a better frontpage loading method. More of an endless scroll rather than everything at once.

Filesize is too big
