I am going to close this Question. @blueeyes8960 Thanks for being here and contributing on the Narrative platform. Not sure you have seen our spec - thought that you might find interesting if you hadn't seen it yet.
Agree for upvotes notification, and already posted this: https://community.narrative.or...ications-on-up-votes Also, the "reply" button would be important. Downvotes are okay to remain anonymous, in my opinion.
I'm not seeing an issue with broken links. Yes, the appearance of the link is shortened for very long links, but if you click them, they work fine. If you want to copy a link - instead of highlighting and copying the text, and right click and choose copy link address, or whatever your browser terms it as. On mobile (chrome is all I have) it's link press on the link and press copy link address. Someone else will have to tell us how it's on on an iPhone.
@David Dreezer , it occasionally happens. I've not found what triggers it. Of course, I put the full link, in the comment, not the text, but sometimes the text still becomes a link (with the "...") but it's a broken link. I've a clear example, but I can't put a link to a comment (oh, that's a suggestion...), so I can give you only the link of the story https://www.narrative.org/post...-don-ts-on-narrative and a screenshot of the comment If I go in edit, the link is intact.
@David Dreezer , yes, copied and pasted from the address bar. So, clean text, no HTML in it. Funny thing is that in edit mode, I get the correct url again: As soon as I submit, the link goes broken again.
Your links in the original copy/paste that you're posting to all new users do work. The appearance of the links are shorted to prevent page stretch. If people click the links they work fine. If they copy/past them they will not. When you then edit your comment with the shortened links, copying and pasting the shortened link back into your edited post, will cause them to break. When you edit a comment with links you'll need to make sure that you're not pasting a shortened link back into your ...
Hello @David Dreezer Actually I have it in my notes and I copy from it everytime. I don't know when I had copied from the comment and edited my notes with it as I can still see the full links in my notes. But I'll pull the fresh links in my notes now. Hope it works!
Sure, @Ted ! To go straight to the point, I'm speaking about the margin-bottom property of the paragraph ( <p> ). This is one of my comments: I added a blank line between paragraphs. If I didn't, the comment would have looked like this: But this is not what I want because in some cases, especially with long comments, the comment becomes a blob, with no visual distinction between paragraphs. But adding a blank line is excessive and can make confusion between multiple comments, and it's...
Maybe a typo, @Ted ? I didn't mean LESS space... the contrary! Now we have to manually ADD that space, by adding an extra blank line. It should be avoided, letting some space between paragraphs being there by style (css), as it already happens in posts.
I can see why you suggested this! This has happened to me a couple of times, where I changed my mind and wanted to withdraw my upvote, and just leave it as no vote. I think the difficulty with this may lie in how rewards are computed. If you withdraw your vote after the rewards have been paid out, does the writer then owe the platform a small amount of money to be deducted from the next earnings? Could get messy...
@BloggerKrunal , I agree on the possibility of removing votes. But @Malkazoid is right about rewards. In my opinion, after rewards have been calculated, the removing of the vote could anyway be useful. Of course, not for changing rewards, but for influencing quality metrics (of the post and of the author) and visibility. The edit notification can be tricky. A single word may be enough to change the meaning, so should fire the notification anyway, as it happens in the community. But it could...
I just added manually and then created a hyper link to this page. Kind of a pain, but I think worth it. I have a few end steps I take for all of my posts that sort of brand my content...this will be one of them.
Thank you for posting this. There are a lot of suggestions here! Because each suggestion deserves to stand on its' own merit, what I am going to do is close this topic, then create a new suggestion topic for each of the individual suggestions in this list (barring duplicates, of course). Each suggestion will be able to have its' own discussion, tracking, and more importantly, each one can be voted up or down independently. With them all in a large group like this things get lost, missed, and...
Well, I'm reporting something different. @Gosia Rokicka suggests a notification button on the website, in the suggestion you mention, while I ask to be notified (optionally even by email) when someone comments on my posts or niche submissions.
@freedom I have created individual suggestions for almost all of these. Nice list. Any bullet item with no link (or the word Dupe) is an item that I just couldn't understand what is being asked. Please repost them separately with some explanation as to what you're asking for. Remember, it's tough to consider building a feature if we don't know what it is or how it works. The more descriptive the better. Hopefully all of these new suggestions that have been posted will get lots of discussion...
News on this? This is still an annoying issue. Many members still don't get, or remember, that they have to mention in the comments, or their comment can go lost in the eyes of the author. Or it's easy to miswrite.
I get that Narrative is different. Maybe being able to see only your own comments, in private, can be a first useful step. On Medium there's much less opportunity of retaliation and of gaming the system, so having the possibility of seeing comments is only useful. Here, honestly I don't know for certain, but I would appreciate. Server resources, very little. Not an issue. Comments are already there. Only some garnish is needed.
HI @Vico Biscotti Medium's commenting I found to be a mess, with comments all mixed together with posts and no way to sort them out. Anyone using RSS (which I really hope to see here ,) especially for promotion, might not want comments in their feed, but get stuck with it anyway - so if comments are to be accessible, I think should be separate from posts, and in light of what @Former Member of misuse potential, maybe only our own comments should be viewable, by our selves.
@Colleen Ryer , Medium has a very poor interface, in terms of sorting/filtering, but I hope Narrative will be different. Personally, I'm fine with comments on Medium but I know it's not so for everybody. Anyway, of course, I intended to have the comment list separated from posts. A different tab in the profile (and not in the feed, at least not by default).
@David Dreezer has referred people to this suggestion from here: https://community.narrative.or...nted-comment-replies But as @Former Member has pointed out, we have had no communication from the Team about this issue.
I understand what you mean, @David Dreezer . Please consider that I labeled this as an issue because on any content platform bloggers are used to be notified on comments (or to have the opportunity of turning it on/off). In fact, members have adopted the mentioning habit as a workaround. Having to check your past articles for comments is perceived as an issue. Anyway, I get it and it doesn't make much difference.
@Vico Biscotti what we are looking for in Issue tickets , especially during the beta period, are implemented features that are not working properly. "I turned on Italics and all my print turned green." I made that up, obviously, as an illustration. Features that we acknowledge to be on the Road Map, but have not yet been implemented would not be what we could consider as being an Issue type of ticket.
When you block a person, they can no longer invite you to a private message or post to your profile wall. Replies and comments they make will be collapsed/hidden by default. Finally, you'll never receive email notifications about content they create or likes they designate for your content.
Note: if you proceed, you will no longer be following .
