Andy from private IP /all Additional JDU features for discussion Would anyone like to see a direct message feature? That's pretty easy to implement. How about notifications showing which posts have new replies since last time you logged in? The second one is pretty tough given the NoSQL backend, but it can be done without undue effort, I think. I already have a solution in mind, since I'm an artist. _reply Thu, 25 Jan 2024 09:15:45 -0800
Andy from private IP /all You know what would be cool? If a new post or reply could trigger a notification that there is new material, and where, so that you can just wait until someone posts and then be notified when you need to reload the page. I think I can do that, it's just going to require some more script-fu as usual. _reply Thu, 25 Jan 2024 14:36:24 -0800
cowgod from private IP /all How about the ability to edit, Champ? _reply Thu, 25 Jan 2024 14:37:18 -0800
Andy from private IP /all Working on it, I have a solution in mind. _reply Fri, 26 Jan 2024 09:55:02 -0800
Andy from private IP /all The recently active users feature is added. This is cool. It looks at the last 500 log lines, which roughly corresponds to the last couple hours. Once there is enough traffic, I'll make it filter the last couple hours based on time instead of the last 500 log lines. _reply Fri, 26 Jan 2024 11:07:58 -0800
Andy from private IP /all I didn't realize there were this many guests until doing this feature. Pretty cool that people find the site entertaining, even if they don't register or post. _reply Fri, 26 Jan 2024 22:10:52 -0800
cowgod from private IP /all How about Anime profile pictures? _reply Sat, 27 Jan 2024 05:58:16 -0800
Andy from private IP /all @cowgodTest great idea, I'll get on that right away. Do you want to pick your own, or do you want me to pick avatars for everyone based on my interpretation of their username? That would be funny. _reply Sat, 27 Jan 2024 06:07:30 -0800
Andy from private IP /all I think what I will do is generate an A.I. avatar based on the text prompt of everyone's username. That should be hilarious. _reply Sat, 27 Jan 2024 06:28:44 -0800
Andy from private IP /all I did it, and your avatar is perfect! _reply Sat, 27 Jan 2024 07:26:52 -0800
Andy from private IP /all P.S. You can tag anyone with the @ symbol. Hopefully it works. _reply Sat, 27 Jan 2024 07:49:52 -0800
Andy from private IP /all @cowgodTest It would be cool if, when you type @, it prompts you with a list of users to tag, and then lets you click on the right user(s). I can do that, it's just pretty hard. Playing with the big boys now...IG and Facebook do this well. _reply Sat, 27 Jan 2024 07:57:45 -0800
Andy from private IP /all This is just a test. When I say someone's username, it should not print their Avatar except in the title. So when I say Andy, it should just print Andy. Test. _reply Sat, 27 Jan 2024 08:01:42 -0800
Andy from private IP /all Andy rocks (test). _reply Sat, 27 Jan 2024 08:16:28 -0800
Andy from private IP /all It works, thanks to a "lookbehind" in regular expression matching. Regex101 is the greatest. https://regex101.com _reply Sat, 03 Feb 2024 07:31:31 -0800
Andy from private IP /all Man, I'm in the zone here. I figured out a way to have the JDU pages updated asynchronously so that you will be on any forum and see notifications when there are new posts in it, or any other forum. That way you don't have to compulsively click on each forum link to see whether there are new posts. This is challenging, but is a nice opportunity to take my web application programming to the next level. Thanks everyone. _reply Sat, 03 Feb 2024 07:41:07 -0800
Andy from private IP /all I've got another feature planned that will show you which posts are new or have new replies since your last activity. That is going to be super cool in terms of how it is done...still figuring this out. Essentially, each time you post there will be a "last activity" timestamp stored in your user profile. Determining which posts have been modified since that timestamp is easy. The hard part is determining which posts have new replies since your last login if you didn't post or reply to anything. For that I have to search the web server log file for your username, which I can do but which adds too much CPU and disk I/O to do it for every page load. Will have to be at regular intervals, if I do it at all. This system without a SQL database adds a layer of complexity that is not entirely offset by the solution's simplicity. I'm actually using my brain here, unlike in my day-to-day of law that I could do in my sleep. _reply Sat, 03 Feb 2024 16:26:30 -0800
Andy from private IP /all Okay, now logged-in users will also see /new as an option for viewing just the new posts since their last session started. That was tough to do...I am a wizard. Let me know if it doesn't work. _reply Sat, 10 Feb 2024 03:09:52 -0800
Andy from private IP /all I revamped the right side of the interface to properly float, wrap, and resize. That way it looks correct on a mobile device. I also added a "View [user]'s Tags" button to make it easy for everyone to see where they have been tagged. Hashtag topics will be next.
