Title:
Suppress content in inbox notification

Area:
Inbox

Summary:
Make it toggleable as to whether the *content* of a private inbox message is sent in email. Currently the whole message comes with the notification, instead of just saying "you have a message".

Description:
DW is known for its superior privacy features. One thing it *doesn't* have - yet - is truly secure messaging, i.e. the only thing that goes outside DW is "you have a message". However, some people like using email as a vehicle for interacting with their social media. So I think in our privacy settings we should have a radio button: "Send content of messages with notification: yes/no" We could do this for comments, too, as a 2.0 thing. You could go one step further and make the "from whom" part togggleable too. Some messages are more sensitive than others... f'rex, the fact that I got a message from, oh, say, Bernie Sanders or Coretta Scott King or Dan Rather would be far more sensitive than getting a message from Joe Random I went to school with who didn't amount to much. I don't think we should go down as far as per-user.... that's a little much, and if you're that level of paranoid you should probably just turn off the "who" altogether.... but still. Having "you've got mail" land in your Gmail or Yahoo inbox where g-ds know who can see it is a lot safer than "meet me outside the palace at 2am with the gunpowder! Cheers, Guy"...

Allow users to specify an account as a roleplaying account

Area:
accounts, statistics

Summary:
Allow users to specify an account for roleplay without affecting paid account services.

Description:
This is a suggestion mainly for statistical purposes! Dreamwidth has an active, sizable roleplaying community, a consequence of which is that there are a lot of "character accounts" scattered across the site. As someone who's very curious about DW's site statistics, I can't help but think that means there's a lot of essentially fictional data skewing things one way or another.

If possible, I'd like for roleplayers to be able to specify an account as being made for roleplay. It would have to be in a way that doesn't affect paid services, since some get paid/paid premium accounts and some don't. In addition to being able to choose it during account creation, there would also need to be an option for existing accounts to "switch over", since there are many, MANY existing character accounts.

Challenges involved: oh boy! I'm not at all familiar with site coding, especially Dreamwidth's, so I can't imagine how complicated this might be. I also don't know how many people would actually use this option, but I thought I'd throw this out there anyway.

Title:
2 factor authentication

Area:
improvement to login

Summary:
Create a 2 factor authentication option. The user would login with the password, and then the server would sent a code to a cell phone. The user would then enter the code to verify that they are trying to log in and it's not someone trying to hack into the account.

Description:
This would of course only be necessary for when users are connecting from unknown networks or networks they have not connected to from before. Once logging in, the user would have the option to 'trust this computer', so subsequent authentication requests would not have to got through this option.

Yahoo, Google and Facebook all off similiar functionality.

ETA: I see this option as being 'opt-in', if you opt-in, then the system will ask you for an additional code. The code is generated via something you have (cell phone, hard token, soft token).

Title:
Tidy up the Edit Profile page

Area:
Edit Profile

Summary:
The Edit Profile page needs a tidy, especially when it comes to controlling who can see what.

Description:
I think that the Edit Profile page is needlessly confusing at present, especially for those not used to LJ-a-likes.
I think it could do with general thinking-through and cleaning up, but here are some specific things that I've noted. Let me know if I should resubmit them as separate suggestions.

* When I want to control who can see which bits on my profile, some things are set here and some are set over in Account Settings -> Privacy (under Contact Info Security and DW Private Messages). Some things are set in Account Settings but then overridden in Edit Profile! I don't know whether this is pure historical legacy, or whether it's because the stuff that's in Account Settings applies more widely than just the profile, but I think it's confusing.

* I can't exercise any control over who can see website URLs that I enter. This is already covered by another suggestion (http://dw-suggestions.dreamwidth.org/404239.html), I'm just mentioning it here for completeness.

* There is a line that reads "DW Private Messages: OBSOLETE: This option has been moved to Account Settings". Why is this here at all?

* There is no granular control over who can see IM usernames. The access level for all contact info (email, Yahoo, Etsy, Gtalk, Jabber, Skype, Twitter, etc etc etc) is set in Account Settings. I think it would be good to be able to control the visibility of each contact method individually.


None of this is important or urgent, but I think giving this page a clean-up at some stage would be a Good Thing :-)

Title:
After commenting, return to previous comment-thread settings in entry

Area:
comments, entries

Summary:
After I leave a comment, I am returned to an entry page set to the default Threaded view for comments. I'd like it if the commenting process could magically remember if I was viewing the entry with all comments Expanded or in Flat view before I commented, and return me to the entry page set to whatever setting I'd picked.

Description:
So, Fandom_Secrets came to DW (Yay!), and I noticed a minor irritation I've had on DW before:

When I 'Expand All' (or 'Flat') comments on a post with lots of comments, then reply to one of those comments, after I hit 'Post', my comment appears on an entry page that's been set back to the default Threaded comments setting, with some comments hidden again.

Which means I have to go back and hit 'Expand All' (or 'Flat') again before I can continue reading and commenting. This disrupts my chain of thought, and in a big post where I'd like to comment to a lot of conversations and sub-discussions, it can get annoying after a while.

If the comment page could magically notice & remember to return me to the entry page/comment thread set-up I'd picked, that would save me several seconds that I could use to invent cheap, workable cold fusion and/or waste on watching Youtube kitten videos. More seriously, it could help some people with accessibility issues navigate pages more easily.

How could this be done? Well, elves would have to use some elven magic, obviously. Very magical creatures, elves. ::nods seriously::

Potential problems with page load, server load, etc? Ask the elves. I'm not really an expert on magic, elven or otherwise. I'd be willing to offer chocolate biscuits and milk, if that helps, but I think that might be for brownies...

Title:
Icon keywords

Area:
Icons

Summary:
The icon keywords are an old and outdated system, it'd be easier for users if a better management system was put in place, especially for high numbers of icons.

Description:
Icon keywords really need to be updated. It is difficult and cumbersome managing keywords for icons especially when having a high number of icons. The current system has literally not changed much since 2001. It would be nice having a sort of keyword managing place, one where you could assign icons (and drag and drop would be awesome there!) or rename or merge keywords as you can for entry tags. Additionally, keeping a list of keywords that you've used but don't currently have an icon assigned would be helpful and useful to roleplayers. Even if it's just a static list would let the user see what they've used. As denise said here:
http://dw-biz.dreamwidth.org/7186.html?thread=773394#cmt773394
it might be computationally expensive getting a retroactive list from old comments, I'd suggest not doing that though and just adding a old keyword if someone actively views a comment with an old keyword- it would be looking for that icon anyway and it'd just display the default when it doesn't find it, though I'm not familiar with how the process works exactly.

Edit!!!! In order to clarify + additional:

It is extremely awkward managing keywords from the icon page from a little tiny text area box, particularly when having many large sets of keywords on one icon with only commas as a separator. I suggest a separate manage area for a list of icon keywords currently in use, and possibly a list of keywords used in the past for reference and the ability to reassign old keywords to new icons. People do not always remember exactly the way they typed a keyword they don't actually have saved.

We have a management page for entry tags, where we can delete, rename, merge and view what is tagged to a specific entry tag. I am suggesting something similar for keywords- if not their own page, at least a section on the icon upload page where we do not have to deal with the tiny text area and only the text area. I can see being able to select a keyword with a check box and hitting a "Rename" button to be able to rename keywords, or select two keywords via check box and hit a "merge" button, or select some "delete" button. Then possibly an "add new keyword" button. That would make keywords more manageable and I don't think it'd require a lot of work, and we already have a check-and-hit-button to delete icons themselves.

We can only rename keywords, we cannot merge them. I've tried to merge keywords, and it didn't work. There is no obvious option nor way to merge keywords. Trying to rename one into another fails. -This is on Bugzilla and is already on the to-do list, but it's part of the bigger management system, so I thought I should include it.

Renaming keywords is sort of a hit or miss using the text area on the icon page, especially if there are multiple keywords to an icon. You do not know if the rename was successful until you go to check comments made with the old keyword- there is absolutely no confirmation, and it is far too easy to typo and create a horrible Frankenkeyword out of the one you're trying to rename and one of the others. Then it becomes annoying trying to undo that because there is no undo button, either, and you have to figure out what keyword you renamed, fix the innocent keyword, and try to rename the suspect keyword again.

This is the same old tired system that has been in use since LiveJournal's early days: By that, I am implying: surely with new coding and technology we should be able to have a more dynamic, easy to use icon and keyword management option.

Option to Hide Community Member List

Area:
Privacy

Summary:
I see a suggestion for invisibility for communities was rejected (sadly) but what about an option to hide the member list?

Description:
I'd like more privacy for members of communities with a sensitive subject matter or to avoid harrassment of members. I know you can opt not to subscribe to a community so that it doesn't show on your personal profile, but members of a community can still be identified from the profile of the community itself. Example; under another username on LJ, I belong to a small community which has attracted a very unsuitable would-be member. This person has been refused membership and is now pestering members to plead on his/her behalf, both on their journals and even by tracking them down on other sites via their profile pages. If DW would let us hide our member list, we could import to here knowing that even if our unwelcome guest found our community, s/he would'nt be able to see our (changed) usernames and start harrassing us again.

Thanks for reading. :)

Title:
move journal title controls back to Edit Profile

Area:
Styles/Profiles

Summary:
Move the editing controls for journal title and subtitle from Edit Journal Style to Edit Profile.

Description:
Once upon a time on LJ, journal titles and subtitles were edited via the Edit Profile page, and everybody was happy. (There was a dark time previously when journal titles and subtitles didn't even exist, but we don't like to talk about those days.) However, one day For Some Reason those controls were moved to the Customize Journal Style page. Much consternation and confusion raged across the land, for the journal title and subtitle and in fact THE FIRST THING one sees on one's profile, so it seems pretty natural to want to edit it there; in fact, some journal styles hide the subtitle completely. WHY IS IT EDITED THERE. WHERE IS THE LOGIC. BUFFY QUOTE.

...cried the people.

Years later, Dreamwidth came to exist and forked off of LJ's existing code, and that was great. Even greater was the fact that DW was hard at work at correcting some of LJ's more questionable coding decisions. Great, great stuff. However, this fork included the illogical switch of title/subtitle control, and thus it still sits in Customize Journal Style, making way less sense than it would to be in Edit Profile.

Sadness, and also it just took me like two minutes to find because seriously, why is it there?!

I propose that Dreamwidth undo this illogical decision and restore title/subtitle to its rightful place under Edit Profile. The only drawback I see is that it may confuse people who have gotten used to it being under Customize; but since Edit Profile is really the natural place to look for it I think that will be the lesser confusion. Plus, there could be a link where that control used to be pointing people in the right direction (or at least that link to Customize could exist under Edit Profile so I never waste two minutes again). Also it might be hard to code or something. But probably it would be awesome and everybody would be happy again, and that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Title:
the ability to select multiple tags when tracking users and communities

Area:
tracking communities and journals

Summary:
Being able to select multiple tags at once on the tracking page for users and communities.

Referring to this page:

http://www.dreamwidth.org/manage/tracking/user?journal=dw_news

(using dw_news as an example)

Description:
When adding or removing tags from the tag page or an entry, users can type tags or select from the drop-down menu, and when editing tags the ability to select or delesect multiple with shift or ctrl clicking is incredibly useful.

I was wondering if something like this could be implemented when selecting tags to track for a community or journal? As the current system stands, if I wish to receive notifications a community with tags for, say, multiple pairings, and I want to track at least fifteen of those tags, I have to select one from the dropdown menu, track it, select another, track it, etc. It isn't a major inconvenience but <i>especially</I> now that I am retracking a lot of communities and users that have imported from LiveJournal, I would prefer to be able to mass-select a whole bunch of tags. I feel like maybe this is a feature that would also be appreciated by the LiveJournal rpers who have recently crossed over.

The reason I mention shift/ctrl clicking is because I feel like it is intuitive and requires very little explanation on the page, and it is a system already in place when it comes to tagging entries. I think being able to type something and see the options that appear (i.e. typing "character" and getting all tags that include the word character) would be incredibly helpful for communities or users with many, many tags especially if they are making use of the tiered tag system.

The potential drawbacks that I can see...

I don't know enough about code to be able to say if this is a large recode job, but it feels like the code used for selecting tags in the "edit tags on this entry" pages is different to the "track this community" pages.

Clutter: a small dropdown box is simple and takes little room. This idea may require more space on the page to be able to enter or select tags.

Users may accidentally select more or incorrect tags to track and because it is a more "intrusive" feature than simply tagging an entry (because it send the updates to your email or inbox) this could annoy or upset people.

j and k for forward and back one post. Could perhaps go one further and add h for parent, and l for child.

Description:
Use j and k for forward and back one post. Could perhaps go one further and add h for parent, and l for child in thread.

Ok, clearly I'm a vim user, but regardless of that, these keys are used pretty much nowhere as shortcuts. FF already nicely implements / for search.

The single most brilliant idea of G+ is I can <i>cleanly</i> skip or backup a post with one keypress. (It would appear I'm easily pleased) Spacebar doesn't do it - especially here where a post could be 5 lines or 500 lines with embedded pictures. Also sometimes it's nice to cleanly go back to start of a post to check/re-read. No other site, to my knowledge does similar, but I now press these damn keys on LJ and FB all the time - and still it never works no matter how many times I try! :D

Any other website that offers a shortcut or two tends to be using meta key combinations like CTRL / ALT. This of course means there's a big chance of getting in the way of local applications which have mapped the same combination. Skip post then becomes skip track in winamp or volume and you're irritated (or deafened) :)

DW has lengthy posts regularly - some of them I'm simply not going to be interested in - be that another 206 pictures of someone's redecorating, pet cat, paper clip collection, or simply a huge post on something you've no interest in.

Set an anchor on each entry, and let me skip in one smooth action. It's a simple fix for much added slickness.

Account Settings: merge 'Comment Pages' option with 'Entry View Style' option

Area:
settings

Summary:
See below as it's quite complicated.

Description:
On Account Settings [http://www.dreamwidth.org/manage/settings/?cat=display], you have two options:

1- Comment Pages - View comment pages in your own journal style

This is the option DW inherited from LiveJournal.

When enabled, clicking on 'Leave a comment', 'Read comments', a permalink or a cut anywhere on the site will append style=mine to the target URL. Comment and reply pages get therefore loaded in your own style or the site skin if you've disabled custom comment pages.


2- Entry View Style - When viewing entry pages (including yours), use this style: Original Style/Site Skin/My own style/Light format

This is the new option Dreamwidth implemented.

When enabled, comment and reply pages always get loaded in the style you've chosen. This is also transparent as nothing gets added to the URL. Magic!


As you can see, the two options are very similar and even overlap in some cases*. The main difference between the two is that option 1 requires you to click on some specific links while option 2 doesn't. If someone links to an entry page in their post and you click on the link, option 1 will not load it in your style. Option 2 will. If you click on the cut text, both options will load the entry in your style. The other difference is that one changes the URL while the other doesn't.

*To prevent this, option 2 isn't used when option 1 is and vice-versa. Except not always. If you have selected the light format for option 2 then it overrides option 1 for instance. As I said, it's complicated.


I suggest the first option to be phased out and to automatically set option 2 to 'my own style' for users who had checked option 1.


Why? I think option 1 seems simple but is actually uselessly complicated, and having these two options seems confusing to me. I also wonder whether many people chose to set 1 but not 2 and did so deliberately. From comments I've seen here and there, some people don't understand that entry pages and comment pages are one and the same, plus the description text for the the first option is vague because explaining how this option works exactly is impossible. It gets even more complicated if you add the fact that once you've got style=mine added to an URL, you're stuck with it so any link you will click on the page will get style=mine too. And let's not talk about Nav Strip overrides.


But what do I know, right? Hence this suggestion to see if it's a good or a terrible idea, and also to know why someone would deliberately use option 1 and not option 2 because it's intriguing. *g*

Title:
Disable old crossposter links

Area:
Crossposting / Styles

Summary:
Have a way of disabling crossposting links on old entries

Description:
Currently, we can choose whether to display links to entries that are crossposted to another site. However, these links seem to stay behind even when the crossposting account settings are deleted here: http://www.dreamwidth.org/manage/settings/?cat=othersites . Disabling the crosspost link option only means the links won't get added to new entries and has no effect on old entries. There seems to be no way to get rid of the old links, something that some users may wish to do (disentangling two accounts for privacy reasons, for example).

I propose there to be an option to disable displaying them. Maybe a question when deleting a crossposting account setting from the linked page or when you disable it for new entries you get the option to also remove them from old entries.

Title:
Instant (un)selection of multiple/all inbox tickboxes.

Area:
Inbox / Notifications

Summary:
The addition of a 'master'-tickbox that would allow you to immediately (un)select/(un)check all tickboxes underneath it.

Description:
I apologize for not using the proper tech jargon.

Basically, what I would like is the DW inbox to have an additional tickbox (or an additional tickbox per category (My Account/People and Communities/Notification Tracking)) so that all items underneath "Notify me in my DW Inbox when:" and "Also notify me by Email" could be instantly selected/unselected by ticking that additional tickbox.

Right now, whenever I want to turn off tracking/notifications for a while (e.g. due to vacation/lack of internet-related reasons), I have to go and individually uncheck every tickbox for the journals and RSS feeds I'm tracking via the DW inbox. It's quite the hassle.

And when I want to turn everything back on again, I have to go and activate/check all those individual tickboxes AND uncheck all "Also notify me by Email", because they become automatically checked when I activate a subscription (even though I don't want/need all these notifications in my email inbox).

So yes, 'master'-tickboxes for both columns ("Notify me in my DW Inbox when:" and "Also notify me by Email") would be extremely appreciated.

Thanks in advance and feel free to ask for further clarification if I wasn't clear enough.

Title:
Mention Account Type for Communities on Account Settings

Area:
site interface

Summary:
On Account Settings, the account type (seed, paid, free) and the other info which is mentioned for personal journals on that line doesn't exist for communities. I don't really see why not. It'd be useful to have it there and not only on the community profile. Same as personal journals really.

Title:
Beta Features: add to Account Settings

Area:
usability

Summary:
Add a new category to http://www.dreamwidth.org/manage/settings/ so you know if you have beta testing turned on or off, with a link to http://www.dreamwidth.org/betafeatures to let you easily change your setting.

Description:
Something like:

Beta Testing -- Activated/Deactivated -- Change

A reminder in the navigation header if you have beta features turned on might be useful too.

Edit: see the first comment for an alternative implementation with a new 'Beta' tab in http://www.dreamwidth.org/manage/settings/.
