Pony update, stat! (Please? Pretty please?) September 2, 2008 2:44 PM   Subscribe

Pony situation report request.

I was thinking that the My Comments feature could use some tweaking, and lo and behold, someone beat me to it. So I was just wondering what became of stavros' great suggestion?

I searched, and couldn't find any updates. And my My Comments hasn't been changed, so I assume there's been no news.

Pony situation report request.

When I read that I thought you were asking for a list of all ponies that Matt agreed would or could be implemented, and how far along they were towards being implemented. I'm kind of dissapointed that this wasn't that. I'd like to see that at some point, if possible.

Are you thinking open-source like Ponyzilla or closed-source like PonyTeam?

hmmm disappointingly, ponyxpress.com is taken. wprryingly it appears (on this stupidly small cell screen) to be either a dating site or a sex toys shop...

So, you are asking for them to look at the feature request database and do a pony dump?
posted by BrotherCaine at 4:43 PM on September 2, 2008


Could the pony dump be downloaded via steam?

One steaming pony dump, coming right up.

BrotherCaine - No, I just want to know the status of one pony.

Or is my humor-filter broken?
posted by djgh at 5:12 PM on September 2, 2008


I forgot that I made that mockup, but I seem to recall some changes made after I did it being made that more or less satisfied my HUNGER FOR RECENT COMMENTS. I think it was just basically making the default page longer.

Not sure how much I'd use the tabs myself, now, being so set in my ways, but I still think they wouldn't be a bad idea. I do find myself wanting to check on my most-recents on the various subsites only more easily sometimes.

DJGH, uh, if you can call my attempts at humor, humor, your humor-filter is broken. I know you wanted the status of one particular pony, but I couldn't resist the joke. Thanks ArtW for taking it to the next level.

Oooh, is this a pony race? I'm still waiting for my ponies to come around the bend. I hope I win!!!

Just to break the lengthening Mod Silence (nothing personal, we've all just had busy days and this one seems to have slipped under the radar):

I think we left off last time with "this is a pretty okay idea". I'm not sure it's really on a priority list or anything, so I have no idea on the if or when of it.

In short, I have absolutely no information for you at this time.

Well I would like you to get on that as soon as you have a free moment please, cortex. Can we get a shortlist of our current priorities and their rough level of readiness? Remember how we talked about prioritizing two way communication with the userbase? I'd like you to deprioritize previous action points and move this to the front of the queue.

That totally reminded me of the office newsletter written by zombies in William Browning Spencer's Resume with Monsters.

There once was a tadalist that Matt used to keep up to date. I think virtually all of the things on that list are now done. The notable exceptions I see are relative timestamps and a five-minute edit/delete window.

something something AR-15 something firing round after round something something bringing me every little piece of trash you pick up

Relative timestamps show up in "Recent Activity", no?

I'd like to see The Pony Status Report on my desk asap.

Mmmm'yeah.

I can verify that this has been added to the shortlist of our current priorities with a general readiness level of yellow, elevated.

So in conclusion that is why Cortex needs a .50 caliber belt fed machinegun.

I read that as "50 caliber felt machine gun".

Note to self, create a felt machine gun.

Yeah, at the end of the day we don't want to end up repurposing that paradigm matrix.

Just so long as Cortex maintains the groomin' standards. The Sgt. Major doesn't like hairs hangin' from yer face, beyond yer mouth areas. Remember: Godfather is watchin'.

I'd engender that paradigm, if you know what I mean.... (because I certainly don't)

The site filter is available now as a drop-down menu under the page title. Look for "Showing activity from: [All Sites]", and change the site. The page should reload with recent comments activity filtered to that site.

Are you thinking open-source like Ponyzilla or closed-source like PonyTeam?

I'm thinking more cockney rhyming slang like Pony and Trap.

Super minor, but I wonder if floating that dropdown to the right and putting it on the same level as the 'Recent Activity on My Comments' H2 wouldn't be good...
posted by stavrosthewonderchicken at 7:51 PM on September 4, 2008


Yep, that looks good. thanks stavros.
