I'm laughing at this so much. Wait... no... I'm laughing at "^ This". Ahahahahaha.
I can't *un*this. MAJOR OVERSIGHT.
In case I click "^ This" instead of "Reply" by mistake.
Tomorrow though, maybe?
No take backs.
this ^ couldn't be rescinded
this me :'(
good hustle tom
i thought everyone had lost it
TOO MANY SSSSSSSSSS
What's the point of this feature really? I'm not interesting in people 'thising' stuff unless they're going to expand on it. All that this adds really is some more text to the page and that hurts my brain.
I don't like it.
The beauty of the DiS message boards the simplicity of each post: Title, Content, Poster, Date Posted.
No extra information clogging up the page. No stupid avatars. No stupid signatures. No embedded html. No post count. No user level meter. Nothing. Nada. Nowt.
It's the simplicity of it all which makes threads (arguments) easy to follow.
Please don't go clogging the boards.
because you won't get a post with 12 replies underneath which all just say
It hardly happens a lot and when it does it's generally in a thread of complete gold or complete stupidity in any case.
...if you want.
it'll be cross site and we'll chart what's most popular using it. very often people don't have anything to say but they like to react. i've noticed on facebook a lot of people say they like something but almost never comment.
i.e. coming soon, the most this'd thread this week
I don't think many people, in the broader context of just how many FB users there are, use FB for conversation. Conversely, I'd have thought it's what most DiS users use this website for.
It's not the biggest deal really and it's your website to do as you please with. I just don't like it aesthically and am dubious of it's practical worth.
It would still be pretty silly but still. If you total up all the this uses in a thread it's just going to reflect that there might be a good post in there somewhere.
Why not just introduce a full Slashdot system and let people meta-moderate and use a score threshold? (No, this isn't a serious suggestion.)
Especially as you can’t “this” the initial post in a thread.
our news feed and having most this'd users. and on the music forum when someone likes someone's say a list someone has done. it's only a little extra.
i'll have to look into slashdot as none of what you said makes any sense
All posts get moderated and users can set a threshold minimum for comments to show, so if they set '5' they only see the very funniest/best comments.
The issue with this is usually that the funniest comments make no sense out of context of replying to a -2 flamebait type post by a complete moron.
"THIS" IS NOT A VERB.
I hear the OED is adding the verb "to theo" to the next edition. I theo, you theo, he/she/it theos. I went theoing at the weekend.
I'll have a look at IE6 just now.
ok, so it's a total rip of liking things on facebook, but it's done in DiS meme format! i endorse this.
To show we think it's shit.
Let’s see if it breaks the boards.
loads of messageboards have "recommend this comment" don't they? and folks who don't live by how-good-i-am-at-arguing might be able to endorse something without risk of being personally shot down by daniel kelly
'cos that would have been just too delicious for my poor little tastebuds to handle
there you are, picking on all the little nervous disers, too scared to post because of that VICIOUS CERBERUS DANIEL KELLY
y'can tell i've not got a huge amount of work to do today can't you
I'm in good company
I've got loads to do but really can't be bothered
Has it disappeared for anyone else?
That means you have to watch the entire page refresh when you do it.
but unlike facebook, we don't have trillions of developers to make ajax work in IE6, etc
what if you think all other posts in the thread are SHIT and you dethis them and you only want to this the original post?
Man, that made my life better.
(I mean, people who click "like" on their own Facebook status. I'm not a self-loathing social networker.)
what if no-one else likes your status?
everybody hates you
go and eat some worms.
(Can we have a That option too?)
That's the reason why Analyse THIS was better than Analyse THAT
See how many Thises we can do.
Hope so. Here's a few more I'd like to see added:
- tits or GTFO
- yeah but you would say that
- I prefered their earlier stuff
but definitely #4
- OH HAI!!
it's time to introduce some big avatars up in here, plus I saw a Mafia film the other day that had a masculine quote about guns, which I'd like to display under every post. The avatars should be animated gifs too - there's a good Popeye one with a flashing background I want to use.
I turn my back for one minute and the board goes to fuck.
Sean and Tom - stay behind after class please.
Just when I come up with an idea so popular - massive, seizure-inducing avatars and film QUOTES under every post - that we were about to see the first instance of a single post with the entire online population posting ^this under it, they get taken away.
You fat lesbian.
the this thing has dissappeared
its back .not that i would miss it ore anything
doesn't really mean anything to me anymore
Get entirely to fuck.
Now, if you could have a SMITE button like on the Brainlove board, that'd be a different story.
vote for ^This instead
ever never never ever
if you see me doing so then you have permission to come round my house and shoe me in the crotch
We need one of these too.
I liked it first, btw.
