Automated
Another update, this time regarding the addition of automated news sources. Have a read.
random87: What/where exactly is the feed icon? :OOh and is there a way to see all the people you're blocking so you can easily unblock them when needed?Otherwise great feature!I've got another question though, or maybe even a request.I've noticed that - just like the pre-site-revamp basilmarket stories page - you can only have one story on the front page at a time.Doesn't that limit the activity on the site? Say I make stories daily, and some quick BZLr's(?) BZLee(?) start a conversation, but during that conversation I post another story, so now the story doesn't appear on the front page anymore, the people that don't browse BZL day and night won't even know any conversation happened!How about a limit of two stories at the time?I feel like a limit of two stories of the same person would still be good enough to stop spam.And now, in the worst case you can just hide stories, which pretty much solves any spam issues.
captain: @random87: pardon, there was a little bug, you should see the feed icon now on the front page for the automated stories. Atm there is no page showing you all the accounts you are blocking, that is on my to do list.You're correct that the front page will only show one story per member. This is a new thing and was done to prevent "doubling up" from an account which looks a bit spammy. I've gone with more independent news sources so I'll relax the limit to what it was before. We can revisit this again if/when it becomes an issue. Thanks for the feedback.
Illustrations
Hey all, hope you're well. Just thought I'd gauge your feedback on the recent update to include videos from various video game companies.
HawtNoodle: I agree with Random87
FriedClams: I did not like the stories from the companies because their descriptions were not real stories but carefully chosen words from their respective marketing teams. If a game were to be put here, a user would post a picture or link a video and write a more genuine story with his/her opinions. Also, games chosen by users are ones they want to share, while the companies will just market every game they produce in hopes of making a sale. If you want to start more conversations, I would like if it you turned on notifications when people @ each other so they know someone is talking to them. Do not forget that conversations are started naturally and cannot be forced. There are so many games out there it will be difficult to find common ground among everyone. BasilMarket had the common ground of MapleStory. Good luck with the site! While you ponder your changes, enjoy some fish and chips!
joblessjim: Definitely Liking the twitch implementation. Looking forward to the future stuff!
