[10:31:44] <Bronzdragon> Hello Apsup
[10:37:22] <Apsup> Heyaa.

[13:12:15] <Bronzdragon> But that's what "Stable" means!

[14:02:36] <Bronzdragon> Hey yoshokatana!
[14:02:41] <yoshokatana> hallo
[14:06:07] <Bronzdragon> How are you?
[14:06:27] <yoshokatana> pretty good
[14:06:44] <Bronzdragon> Good, good.
[14:07:27] <yoshokatana> you?
[14:08:02] <Bronzdragon> Pretty decent, I'd have to say.
[14:09:38] <yoshokatana> cool
[14:10:49] <apreche> that is indeed what stable means
[14:14:12] <yoshokatana> apreche: what’s stable?
[14:20:41] <Bronzdragon> This: http://www.reddit.com
[14:21:05] <Bronzdragon> Also, Apreche, I am intersted to hear what you think of the Facebook aquisition of the Occulus.
[14:21:24] <Bronzdragon> You often have fresh and very honest oppinions, if not a little insane.
[14:22:24] <yoshokatana> I’m cautiously optimistic. If most of what people involved have been saying is true, it’ll be a huge positive (custom hardware, larger production rollout, etc)
[14:22:57] <yoshokatana> if facebook goes galt and dicks everyone over, at least VR has momentum now
[14:30:38] <apreche> i really don't care
[14:32:33] -!- Kulag has quit [Ping timeout: 181 seconds]
[14:32:54] <Bronzdragon> Oh.
[14:33:14] -!- Kulag [Kulag!~kulag@A89381D7.BE16B68E.80DE9213.IP] has joined #geeknights
[14:37:12] <yoshokatana> womp womp
[15:42:49] <yoshokatana> hmm
[15:43:01] <yoshokatana> which metrics should I show in a forum thread list?
[15:43:37] <yoshokatana> I like avatar of most recent commenter, x comments (x new), most recent by y, z minutes ago, category
[15:43:59] <yoshokatana> I don’t really care about who started a thread, or how many views it has
[15:44:32] <yoshokatana> should I consolidate the x comments and x new?
[15:44:55] <yoshokatana> the “x new” is useful, but “x comments” is sort of a vanity metric
[15:49:11] <Bronzdragon> Well, it's slightly useful
[15:49:41] <Bronzdragon> It'll tell you if a thread is very active, and together with the topic, tells you whether it's worth going through in it's entirety.
[15:50:20] <yoshokatana> hmm
[15:51:38] <Bronzdragon> I'd argue it's less useful than the avatar of whomever most recently commented
[15:51:43] <Bronzdragon> *more
[15:52:05] <Bronzdragon> If you want it short, you could do X/y unread.
[15:52:12] <Bronzdragon> So 10/248 unread
[15:52:12] <Robobuntoo> You can't So ten 248s!
[15:52:26] <Bronzdragon> Oh, sorry.
[15:57:55] <yoshokatana> yeah, most recent avatar is definitely getting added
[15:58:25] <Aria> How about most active posters avatar?
[15:58:40] <yoshokatana> frcf replaces comment count with “new comments” if there are new ones, and it seems to work
[15:58:47] <yoshokatana> Aria: ehh that’s harder
[15:59:09] <yoshokatana> and it can give the wrong impression for old threads that resurface
[15:59:26] <Bronzdragon> Also, it encourages the 2nd most active user to spam.
[15:59:32] <yoshokatana> ^^
[15:59:48] <yoshokatana> imho the avatar image in a thread list basically says, at a glance, “who’s involved in this thread?”
[15:59:48] <Aria> Not if its the poster with the most upvotes instead
[16:00:13] <yoshokatana> and “most recent” gives a more accurate answer than most commented, creator, upvotes, etc
[16:00:50] <yoshokatana> I’m still thinking of the best way to do +1 stuff
[16:01:12] <yoshokatana> also wysiwyg editing, since this forum isn’t for techies
[16:01:24] <yoshokatana> there are so many terrible wysiwyg systems
[16:01:28] <yoshokatana> and so few good ones
[16:02:18] <Aria> Ok heading home
[16:02:20] <Aria> see you
[16:02:29] <Aria> Gonna be biking in the rain
[16:02:39] <yoshokatana> ciao
[16:02:41] <Bronzdragon> I see.
[16:03:07] <Aria> >_>
[16:04:20] <Aria> Im going on a business trip and wasn't informed ahead of time. Thats great. Anyway, heading home, bye
[16:05:45] <yoshokatana> what do you think? https://www.evernote.com
[16:06:22] <yoshokatana> “time” would be fuzzy, e.g. “x minutes ago”, “x hours ago”, “around a week ago”, etc
[16:06:54] <Bronzdragon> Looks fine.
[16:07:26] <yoshokatana> cool
[20:50:16] <Bronzdragon> So, wutcha guys upto?
