lastn - Sort by last comment option
Short, concise description of the idea
The ability to sort entries on the lastn page by the date on which a comment was last added
Full description of the idea
The lastn page currently sorts by date of journal entry.
I also wish for the ability to sort entries by the date on which a comment was last added to a journal entry.
An ordered list of benefits
Many of my friends' journals create discussion. The only way to track discussion threads you haven't (yet) replied to is to make a mental note of the count for each. This sorting mode would make it possible to know which journal entries to revisit.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
If a 'date of last comment' field doesn't exist for journals, it would need to be added.
I don't know the cost of such a sort. To keep it reasonable, it may have to be a subscriber-only feature, or a feature limited to the last 75(?) entries like the current lastn.
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
This could also be implemented as a search, but it would be nice if it were bookmarkable, using cgi instead of form POSTing.
