Title:
Optional "Re-Posting" to add on to current "Share This Entry"

Area:
Share This Entry

Summary:
A re-posting option (that can be turned on or off, so up to the poster) that allows posts to be shared and appear in journals and reading pages like re-tweeting: redirects to the original post (so original poster still controls it)

Description:
The "Share this entry" of Dreamwidth is reaching a point where it's lacking, as it depends only on email and nothing else! Keeping what it has now (emailing), more options should be added. Like Re-Postng, only if the account or community turns this option on. This can be like Retweeting or Replurking: It appears the journal (thus counted as an update) and consequently the reading page of those subscribed to that journal, but it shows the original post and redirects you to it once clicked.

I believe Facebook has something like this, where "(user) shared -> (details here)" and it's the original.

Therefore the original poster still has all power of their post, should they want to edit or delete it. The problem with sites like Tumblr is that reblogging makes it an entirely new and separate post, so the original poster loses control of it (like if they wanted to delete or edit, they cannot because it will still circulate around, even when they delete their accounts). This will help with the exposure of many posts that can welcome plenty of discussion with this already excellent commenting system.

Also, not everyone wants their posts to be reposted in such a manner, even if their account is primarily public, because of personal and privacy reasons. The option to turn it on and off will be required (including whole communities to have the option to turn it on and off, since some communities are personal?)

Reposting also should not be an option for locked posts, obviously for privacy reasons.

Also if possible, individual posts can have the option to be reposted, like how currently some posts can have specific levels of content ratings.

As for a count of how many times it's been reposted, I'm not sure if that is required, but it seems to be consistent with most places that allow this form of sharing, so maybe on or off?

Dreamwidth's always been wonderful in keeping good privacy options, good flexibility when it comes to filters and keeping power to the poster. So if it has a sharing option like this, it should have one that upholds its ideals while still giving us that option to spread posts around. At the moment, the ideas and points I have suggested keep the reposting of Dreamwidth posts to just other Dreamwidth accounts, just to keep this simple first.

On the Manage Filters page, http://www.dreamwidth.org/manage/subscriptions/filters, order the filters by name

Description:
The list of filters is currently ordered by when you created them, so if you weren't particularly logical about setting up your subscription filters, http://www.dreamwidth.org/manage/subscriptions/filters can show a bit of a mess in the drop-down. Rather than having to re-create them all, I'd love it if they could be sorted by name rather than creation date. It's already possible to rename a filter, so this would allow people to order them however they wanted - if you want to keep them in creation order, just stick numbers on the front.

Display "Default" instead of "All" on navstrip when viewing default reading page

Area:
navstrip/reading filters

Summary:
Currently, when I view my Reading Page, it defaults to my Default setting - but tells me I'm viewing All Subscriptions on the navstrip. I suggest that it instead tells me I'm viewing Default.

Description:
I have a subscription filter named "Default" (which, by the way, is one of most awesome things ever). When I click to view my Reading Page, it all functions as advertised and displays only things in my Default group - but the navstrip at the top of the page informs me that I'm reading "All Subscriptions". Untrue! And often confusing when I think about reading the people who aren't on my default list - because it's displaying All at the top, I ... think I'm reading everybody. However, if I click the "view" button next to where it says "All Subscriptions", it does indeed refresh to show me all of my subscriptions (adds "?filter=0" to the url). The dropdown box then continues to advertise that I am viewing All Subscriptions. However, if I were to view a filter called "random", the url would change to ".../read/random" AND, more importantly, the dropdown box would show the filter's name, "random". The only time that it doesn't show me the filter I'm viewing in the box is when I click directly to my reading page.

Changing this so the text matches up seems like it would save people a lot of confusion, and I can't see any particular drawbacks, though I don't know the slightest thing about what sort of effort it would take to implement it. Always worth a thought, though?

Title:
allow navigation by date on the reading page via a calendar in the navbar

Area:
navigation

Summary:
I would like to be able to use the display by date function with a calendar for my DW reading list, like I can with my flist on LJ rather than having to enter ?date=YYYY-MM-DD manually.

Description:
LJ recently added a calendar popup link in the navigation bar with which you can go to a date not just in your journal but also on your flist, depending on which page you are using the navigation bar from.

I know DW also allows browsing its reading list by date like LJ (I think it's a paid feature here too), but it is harder to remember the URL with the ?date=YYYY-MM-DD addition than to just click. I like how the new LJ navigation bar fit in more functions without making it wider by using these hover popups for the filter field and the calendar. I think DW could change its navigation bar like this too to make this function fit there in a similar manner, i.e. if the filter field were a popup there would be room for the new calendar link in this section of the DW navigation bar too, without having to give up some other navigation bar function.

I'm not sure how accessible this popup calender and filter list is though for users with different types of browsers, so that could be a potential downside.

Description:
I recently was curious how long it had been since someone I knew posted. I went to their journal to find out. While I was doing that it occurred to me that there might be some utility in a page like the reading page, but that just showed the single most recent post from each friend (presumably in the same reverse-chronological order the regular reading page does now).

Ideally one could view any filter in this way as well, to allow the user to winnow out all the communities, feeds, etc. Maybe some sort of button on the reading page to switch to "single most recent mode"?

Title:
Separate Reading, Network and Off-Site Subscriptions Into Three Links

Area:
journal navigation, feeds, reading, network

Summary:
Separate Reading, Network and off-site subscriptions (including subscriptions to LiveJournal and other websites) into three separate links in the default journal navigation.
Example here: http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll128/marahstest/add_link_to_outbound_feeds.jpg

Description:
Right now all Dreamwidth journals include two links for reading content that is not your own: the Reading link, which displays content from your Access and Subscriber lists, and any LiveJournal and/or off-site content you've subscribed to, and the Network link, which displays FOAF (friend of a friend) journal entries and communities, and all FOAF off-site subscriptions.

The current system results in all off-site subscriptions (both to LiveJournal and other website's content) getting lumped into the Reading and Network links on each Dreamwidth user's journal. This makes navigating the Reading and Network pages time consuming unless steps are take to somehow filter out content we each want to avoid scrolling past to get to what we're after on each page.

By adding a third link to the mix (and therefore, a third and completely separate feed for each Dreamwidth journal) the Reading link will display content for just your Dreamwidth subscriptions and access list, and the Network link will do the same for your FOAF list, while the third link (let's call it the "Outbound Subscriptions" link) will display only the LiveJournals and other off-site content you've subscribed to.

I hacked together an example of how this might look:
http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll128/marahstest/add_link_to_outbound_feeds.jpg

So you'd have three reading links by default on all journals from now on: the Reading link, the Network link, and the Outbound Subscriptions link.

This solves the problem of "too much to scroll through" on each respective link: if you want to read outbound, off-site content, you can just click the "Outbound" link; if not, you can just stick with the Reading and Network links and they will be faster and less cumbersome to get through, without having to employ clunky filters (which honestly, I have never learned how to use).

The drawback is, I imagine it would take a lot of coding for the devs to pull this off, and I'm not sure every user would automatically want to separate off-site and LiveJournal content into a separate reading page, so it might help to make this an "optional default" (that's oxymoronical, I know) of sorts.

Ironically, this came up from someone's post on my Network. What I would love to see would be a way to filter out certain feeds/comms/users from my Networks page.

For example, I read feeds on a separate program that lets me organize them in ways that make me happy, so when I check my Network, I sometimes get doubles of things I've already read. There are also feeds that my reading circle subscribe to that I don't particularly care for, and if it's an active feed, it's tiresome to have to always to scroll by, especially if I'm skipping backwards several times.

Title:
Changing one person's access to multiple filters

Area:
filters

Summary:
I know the option already exists to go to an individual user's profile and choose to modify subscription/access. However, this never occurs to me when I look at the filters editing page (I mean, it will now, since I have made this suggestion, probably...), and it seems like it would be an easy thing to point out there.

Description:
So, when I allow access for someone, or for that matter when I subscribe to them, I may not know them all that well, and therefore may not yet be prepared to give them access to tight filters, or may not know, because *they* have certain kinds of posts locked, that I want to put them on such and such reading filter. Not that I use reading filters myself, but I assume this would apply for folks who do.

So I'm just thinking, when I go to edit filters, what I get, which seems to be a pretty direct reproduction of the LJ approach, is a list of my filters, and then a list of all the people available, and when I choose a filters, a list of who is currently on it. However, it may be that what I want to do is add Jane and Mary, whom I have come to interact with quite often since I initially subscribed/allowed, to three of my access filters and two of my reading filters.

It would in fact be a lot easier to do this by going to Jane's and Mary's profiles and modifying subscription/access, but there's nothing about this option on the filter-managing page. I'm just thinking it would make a ton of sense for that page (those pages, I guess, one for access and one for subscriptions) to point this out for those of us who fail to store this information in our brains. Just a sentence up top: if you want to [change access to/change reading filters for] multiple filters for a particular user, go to http://www.dreamwidth.org/manage/circle/add?user=florahart&action=access (or action=subscribe for the subscriptions page) for that user.

There's certainly a prettier way to say that last part, but I mean, following the example of using my own username to show what the url looks like, as is in place all over the site? Or, a description of how to find the button in the ...circle menu? is that what it's called?

What this solves: me not remembering it's possible to go back to that list of filters I get when I give access/subscribe in the first place.

Drawbacks: More words on the page could just confuse people and maybe the problem isn't a problem for enough people for that to be worthwhile.

Some of my filters are based on information that DW already has, for example: timezones, geographic location. (Other options people might like to sort filters by could be age, school, or gender.) I'd like to use that public information to auto-construct some of my filters.

I'd like to be able to:
1. Auto-construct some filters by telling DW, for example, to put [all personal journals from people in the UK] in my "UK filter".
2. And then I'd like to have the option for DW to add new people to that filter automatically when I subscribe to and/or give access to new people.

Obviously, this wouldn't be a perfect system. It would only use info that is public, so there'd still be people you'd have to manually add in, but if it could save time by sorting the people with public info into filters for you automatically, that would be a help.

I'd love a way to pull lists of my various filters to compare them.

Description:
I build filters as the whim strikes me, and I have filters imported from LJ that don't quite do what I want any more. Between the two, it means that I have a really hard time remembering who I've got in what filter. There are some I want to have overlap of people, there are some that I really don't but they might be because at some point it sounded like a good idea.

And the boxes in the filter management area don't show me enough of the list at once for me not to forget who all is in the upper part or the lower part as I'm working.

It would be totally awesome if there was some way that I could copy even just a plaintext list of who is in what filter so that I could easily compare/contrast the lists and really figure out who I want to have where without having to click back and forth through the entire interface multiple times.

I can't code at all, so I have no idea how this could be done, or what would be the best way, but that's what I would like to have.

Improve UI for Filter Management

Area:
Filters

Summary:
Change the way filters are managed in the organise area so that you can see which accounts are in which filter, and improve taskflow and interface to be more intuitive.

Description:
Having finally set up some reading filters, I find the management page is only a slight improvement on the LJ standard that's been difficult to use for years.

I want to ensure that
a) all accounts I subscribe are in at least one filter
b) Accounts aren't accidentally added to more than one filter

I have two filters for my feeds-Science&Media and Politics&Economics. I set up one, then went back to do the other. While doing this, I had no way of knowing which I'd already added to the other filter. As I can already view all feeds, if using the filter it's so that I can catch up on elements, I don't want duplication in that filter.

Proposal:
List all accounts in a filterable list on the left. Have a column for each filter going along the top, with a checkbox for each account. Ideally have the columns in an iframe or similar so the accounts stay static (and viewable) if horizontal scrolling is necessary.

Then you can quickly scan across for each account, and scan down for each filter, to see what is in which and ensure you've got the right accounts in the right filter.

-It would aid people who have primary accounts on other sites but follow locked entries on Dreamwidth. (Of course, I have the opposite problem now, but I digress.)

The problems:
-This will take coding, as everything does.
-Right now, on DW, the url is security/friends instead of security/access - this is patched but not committed because there's no CLA

The drawback is that it would make an already complicated form even more complicated, so people might never use the options.

Title:
Subscribing to user should point you at reading filters; giving access point you at access filters.

Area:
filters, circle management

Summary:
Currently, when you subscribe to someone, the site asks if you want to give them access and presents your access filters for you to place them on. It should present your subscription filters instead.

Description:
The current behavior is legacy behavior because friending was unlocking and subscribing simultaneously. On Dreamwidth, it's clear that subscribing to an account is an indication that one wants to read the account, so we should present options for managing how it is read.

Of course, we should also say, "do you also want to give access?" and if they say yes, we can *then* move into a dialogue about access filters. But subscribing should default to subscription filters.

Title:
Set Manage Filters to Subscriptions in the 'Organize' Menu

Area:
Site Scheme 'Organize' Menu

Summary:
Manage Filters is currently set to load the 'Manage Access Filters' page. From there you can manage your subscription filters. I suggest the opposite be done.

Description:
Ideally, the two could be separated and added as two different links in 'Organize' but there are already many links in this menu. I modify/set subscriptions filters more often than access filters but I have no idea what you guys do. Guess the poll will tell me what's best for everybody. :)
