ordering memories

ordering memories

Short, concise description of the idea
enforce an ordering on memories (currently they are somewhat random, with pre-migration and post-migration memories treated differently). ideally, allow users to choose whether memories are ordered chronologically, in order that they were added, or alphabetically by memory subject

Full description of the idea
what i'm imagining is somewhere under the "modify your journal" options you can set the ordering of memories to be either: - alphabetical - chronological - in order they were added this would apply to all memories (not just post-migration ones).

An ordered list of benefits

  • - currently memories look like a hodgepodge. there's no obvious order. old memories especially are all messed up, and when combined with new ones it's very unclear.
  • - make it easier for people to use memories as a way of organizing their journals. i use memories as a set of topics.. and right now it's pretty confusing
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • i can't think of any. though there may be aspects to the way memories are implemented that makes this difficult; i have no idea.

  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • i don't know anything about the internals.
