Reasons not to go to phase one entry to the world.

Phase one entry to the world is where we invite quite a number of people to come here and post items.

I had hoped to open this for that phase this week. The question is what problems/features are a must before that happens.

We can list them in the comments.

Comments


Seth says
ability to delete tags The tag list has become totally corrupted. If we have the ability to delete erronious taggings on items, then we can clean it up.

Seth says
duplicate tags it should not be possible to tag an item with the same tag more than once.

Seth says
login to non existant groups creates all manners of havoc

Seth says
disallow some HTML in edit boxes for security reasons this is a must

Seth says
clean up the grahpics of the site for obvious reasons.

Seth says
Are there any other things that are imparitive to clean up before we go a bit into the world ??????

Seth says
feeds people are not gonna take this seriouusly as a bolg unless it has feeds. Also it is becomming a nusance, even with the traffic we have to keep track of items that need addressing. Feeds will help with that. We can start using bloglines to see what new stuff is flowing by.

Seth says
deleting items should delete their taggings another way tags get corrupted

Seth says
one need to think of which fixes will have the biggest impact on usability.

unknown says
I would say a SEARCH box on the lefthand list of tags is pretty important for a large group of people - the list is long enough now to bug me

unknown says
The default private group setting is pretty important & when you go to edit an item it should be checked by default so that when you want to make an item public you see a change. Currently you edit a private item & the default is to unprivatize it.

unknown says
I think a conversation with Spry is important to determine if they can figure out why the server has been crashing

unknown says
I think consolidating the FAQs on the /add panel & making a link to it on the main page would be a good idea.

unknown says
I think you have to be ready to keep the blog & back it up - unless this is a limited edition alpha release. Right now the biggest problem seems to consolidate my thoughts & items . Perhaps I should link them together with my wiki (;-)

unknown says
Do you plan to keep any ot this for seed ?

unknown says
The /aaaaxyz logs are the single most bizarre notion (to me). The implications of these should be explained well in a FAQ

Could you point me to a place on the web which has this kind of interaction .. am not quite sure what u are talking about ... is this javascript or html forms action or what ?

unknown says
Well as far as search behavior Google Suggest is what I am looking for - it beats scrolling. Could have it at the head of a column that scrolls as well so that the person using it has some idea of what's there

Seth says
perhaps we need a title room for fastblogit wishes ... i would suggest making a new item under that for a fast scroll list of tags. Del.icio.us also has something similar in their bookmark protocol, but not in retrieval mode. It is not likely that i will get to this prior to phase 1 opening.
