25th February 2016 @ 02:56 pm - filter banned users from friend-of-friend feed

Title
filter banned users from friend-of-friend feed

Short, concise description of the idea
Ideally, entries and comments from banned users should not be seen anywhere (short of going to their journal directly). Barring that, at least filter them from foaf.

Full description of the idea
LJ already filters the user's direct friends from the friend-of-friend feed (/friendsfriends), so the functionality is there. I'd like the banned users to be included into that filter as well

An ordered list of benefits
  • Banning a user clearly means that the person doing the banning does not want to see anything from that user; the foaf feed is closer to the friends page than to simply wandering around the site looking at random journals; so, this would move LJ in the direction of better consistency in handling the entries from banned users
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • technically - none I can see; the code is already there, it should be a simple enough fix
  • wrt policy - I'm having a hard time imagining that by flipping the default from "seeing banned users" to "not seeing banned users" would upset anyone, but if you want to be extra nice, make the behavior configurable

Please add IP address and time of the comment in mail notifiaction template

Short, concise description of the idea
Current mail notifications does not contain:
* Full time stamp of the comment
* IP address of comment poster, even if you had enabled to save IP addresses

Full description of the idea
Please add IP address and time of the comment in mail notifiaction template

Current mail notifications does not contain:
* Full time stamp of the comment
* IP address of comment poster, even if you had enabled to save IP addresses

So,
1) you are not able to search by IP address in mail notifications archive
2) you are not able to see anything, if comment was removed by a guy who had posted it (you have the text, but not IP address and timestamp)

An ordered list of benefits
  • 1. You will be able to see IP address immediately, in notification.
    2. You will be able to search by IP address in mail notification archive
    3. You will see exact timestamp in notification
    etc
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • There is no any problems/issues.
    It is easy to do, just modify notifcation template, inserting a few entries - IP address and timestamp

Title
Repost any post

Short, concise description of the idea
Extend the repost feature from communities to all posts

Full description of the idea
Tumblr has been getting worse every release, giving LJ a chance to reclaim lost users. The main feature that Tumblr has over LJ right now the ability to repost any other post and add text and new tags.

Currently, LJ can only do this to a post within a community. I would extend this to any post and add a locking mechanism that can be applied to posts so people can disallow their posts to be reposted if they want.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Allows content to be spread more widely
  • Switches reposting from an author choice to a reader choice, allowing readers to interact with content
  • Makes LJ more competitive in the social media market
  • The locking mechanism would allow authors to control how their content is used
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Users would see multiple copies of the same post in their Feed potentially. They may wish to have an option to turn reposts off, so their feed is only ever original content.
3rd August 2015 @ 01:31 pm - Tumblr as an option for commenting.
SAKURAI SHO ♥♥♥ [main]

Title
Tumblr as an option for commenting.

Short, concise description of the idea
There should be a feature that allows users to comment using their Tumblr account.

Full description of the idea
While adding Tumblr to the list of account you can use to comment with will certainly be easier for some people, it will also allow more people in becoming interested in LiveJournal itself. This option of commenting on posts in LiveJournal using a Tumblr account should be allowed for a busier and more inclusive network.

An ordered list of benefits
  • More people will be using LiveJournal.
  • The dead communities may be revived with those people who have Tumblr account now because of how easy and efficient it will be for them to use.
  • There will be a better sense of community. If one person sees an account that is familiar they can find each other on other networks thus creating a stronger bond.
  • You can easily find the bots or "trolls" that are making sock puppet accounts that may be harmful to the website through this form of ID.
  • Users can have a better sense of who they are speaking with.
  • For users on the go and who are very busy, this can be a faster and efficient way from their mobile devices.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • There will be some stimulation aspect for the other website/social media site as well such as is the case for many different platforms of social media. Those that find this through LiveJournal may be interested in creating a Tumblr account as well.
12th July 2015 @ 04:18 pm - Ban notification

Title
Ban notification

Short, concise description of the idea
Add new category "ban" to notifications page.

Full description of the idea
There are many useful categories in the page http://www.livejournal.com/manage/settings/?cat=notifications such as "Someone adds me as a friend", "Someone removes me from their Friends list", etc.

New category "Someone banned me" will be so useful for social relations.

Notification to sent should contain username which issued ban command. In case of community ban there should be corresponding community name included in notification.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Currently there is no handy way to know if someone had banned you, and when. User who had banned another user usually doesn't notify him about ban action nor explain it. Often one realize the very fact of ban too late.
  • With proposed notification category interested user will be always aware who banned him and when.
  • In community with many moderators it will make clear which one had banned you, and that may help in appeal procedure.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Seems there is no problems with my proposal.
5th April 2015 @ 09:38 am - Current Reading
Standard

Title
Current Reading

Short, concise description of the idea
Expand "current location", "current mood", and "current music" to include "current reading".

Full description of the idea
As above, expanding FAQ item 32. http://www.livejournal.com/support/faq/32.html

An ordered list of benefits
  • Readers of a journal will be able to see what a person is currently reading and perhaps will be inspired to comment or read the same text.
  • Journal writers will have a record of what they have been reading and when.
  • Social psychologists may conduct correlations on music, reading, location, and mood ;)
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Adds another item to the list, which some may dislike (but it's optional).
  • Writers may have to determine which of their stack of books constitutes "current reading".
23rd February 2015 @ 01:43 am - Why can't I track prompts/comments?
Grumpy Cat Vincent Van Gogh

Title
Why can't I track prompts/comments?

Short, concise description of the idea
Whenever I go to track a comment/prompt in a kinkmeme it always has me following the entire post/ALL the prompts rather than the specific comment/prompt I wish to follow.

Full description of the idea
Say I go to the Sherlock BBC Prompting Meme (http://sherlockbbc-fic.livejournal.com/) and I see a prompt on there I really like and want to track. When I click on the "track this" icon it takes me to a page where I can choose the options to notify me for whenever somebody comments on ANYTHING in the ENTIRE post. I don't want to be bombarded by alerts whenever someone else posts another prompt or comments about a different prompt on the post, I just want to be notified when there is a fill or new comment about THAT SPECIFIC prompt.

An ordered list of benefits
  • My inbox/email isn't flooded with pages of updates to prompts/comments I don't care about.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • None that I can foresee.
4th August 2014 @ 07:54 pm - Cross Post to Google Plus

Title
Cross Post to Google Plus

Short, concise description of the idea
I would like to be able to post a link to my journal entry on Google Plus.

Full description of the idea
Currently, only Facebook has an option to allow for posting a link to an entry. I would like to be able to post it to Google Plus, too.

An ordered list of benefits
  • More places and individuals would be able to view the posts that are made. This brings in more traffic.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Getting permission from Google Plus to allow the cross posting option.
20th July 2014 @ 09:16 pm - LJ Cut Expand and Collapse
darkness

Title
LJ Cut Expand and Collapse

Short, concise description of the idea
Add a 'collapse' button/link at the end of an expand lj-cut post.

Full description of the idea
While I love being able to expand an LJ cut without leaving the page, it would be nice if there was a way to collapse the cuts once you reached the end of the post.
It is a hassle and annoying to have to scroll back up to the top of the expanded post to either collapse or move on to another post. The 'collapse' at the top of the post is nice, I suppose, it but does nothing when you've just finished viewing a large post.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Makes it easier for people to read/view a post.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • There really is no drawback to this.

Title
ability to show public post comment to friends only

Short, concise description of the idea
to help keep more journals open, yet comply with new laws.

Full description of the idea
Right now I can allow commenting to all, to friends or to none, and once comment is made I can either show it by default, pre-screen it or hide it, but it would be useful to allow all to comment, yet show comments only to friends.

An ordered list of benefits
  • In the light of new laws in Russia, a journal can be blocked and owner fined if there are "bad" comments and owner is not reacting. If entry itself is clean and does not have to be hidden, the owner has to either pre-screen all the comments, future and past, it's not good, since the comments could be good, but not good for the new law.
    the ability to show all comments only to friends can solve this.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • the nuance is when comment is left by non-friend, it's visible to friends and they can answer, yet commenter can't even see that.
