Tag Display Behavior in Generator

Title
Tag Display Behavior in Generator

Short, concise description of the idea
Make the Tag Function display consistant with the music, mood, and location display in the Generator layout.

Full description of the idea
The Location, Mood and Music displays in the Generator layout align themselves with one another, and have a consistant space between them. The Tag display which rides above them, looks like it matches in that it has the same formatting (default [Tags| tag, tag, tag]) but does not fall inline with the spacing, (where the information on the left of the | is right alighned, and the information on the right is left aligned, and all the closing brackets line up) instead it's just left aligned and the closing bracket is just at the end. Also the information to the left of the | on the other three header types can be customized in the customizations, but "Tags" is stuck that way.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Aeshetic improvment
    Customizable lable for tags

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Might be more complicatd to impliment than I think

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Not knowing much about LJ format coding, I'd suggest implimenting whatever code is used to align the other three possible header information blurbs, on the tags one as well.

Trackback on Syndicated Feed Comments

Title
Trackback on Syndicated Feed Comments

Short, concise description of the idea
Send a trackback to the original post of a syndicated feed when a comment is posted

Full description of the idea
There are a number of sites that provide feeds or have rss/atom feeds on livejournal and are not notified when a comment has been made. Adding a trackback to the comments allows the original posting site to be notified when a comment is made.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Notifying the original posting site when a comment is made on a feed post

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • increased outbound http traffic
  • pointless for sites that don't support trackbacks

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • During comment submission post, add a trackback item to an outbound queue that is processed seperately from comment submission.
  • During the polling process for the feed, also send the queued trackback items.
