Short, concise description of the idea
The ability to add a 100 character [maximum] signature to the end of every post made.

Full description of the idea
Because of mounting Issues [see below] relating to potential costs I suggest this is incorporated as a paid user option. A signature that can be automatically added to the end of every entry, stored in one of the databases on the server. This opens a door for users to publicise items like poetry web sites without much effort - they simply have to post with their sig included. This has proven incredibly effective on newsnet.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Enables user to advertise their :-
    Alternative Journal
    Pictures Archive on alternative web space
    Favourite Quote
  • Automically Insertion option means that user doesnt have to remember to advertise these.
  • Other Users do not have to look at the users profile to find whateva they've advertised, for example : Poetry Web Site.
  • Requires no modification of the client if added automatically.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Requires more database space. 4 lines / user. 100 characters / user [estimate]
  • Requires more processing upon generation of each page - potentially 100 characters/entry.
  • Requires modification of the database to include new field.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Pseudo Code Indicating where sig would lie:-
    %%Time%% - %%Title%%
    %%Entry Text%%
    %%Current Mood%% etc.
  • No need for sig to be emboldened. Just plain text would work.
  • Tags: comments, entries, § historical
    • Post a new comment
