Short, concise description of the idea
A suicide note for deleted journals.
Full description of the idea
If a person decides to delete his journal, he would have the option of leaving a final message on the "%%username%%'s journal has been deleted" page. The final message would function as an entry so that it can be accessed by a friends page, but would also stay on the journal page for the 30-day period of resuscitability.
An ordered list of benefits
- People may leave a parting word to the readers they like.
- Readers who are away still have 30 days to see why the journal was deleted.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
- Reworking the page that displays the "this journal has been deleted" message to include the final words, if any.
- Figuring out how to make it function as both a regular entry (for friends pages) and the special message (for the delete page).
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
At the Delete Journal feature, the user will have the option of composing a message that will accompany the deleted journal page for its 30-day reign, but the message will also appear on the friends pages of the journal's subscribers. I was thinking that maybe the text could be called %%lastwords%% (or something) for use on the deleted journal page and then %%lastwords%% could be inserted into a final journal entry for that person.
I'm not quite sure of what "moral" (as opposed to technical) and technical problems this would present.
