Profiles: message box if I've banned this user

Area:
profiles, relationships

Summary:
If you go to the profile page of a user you've banned, nothing indicates you've done so. I think a message box telling you you've banned this user, with the reason you've banned them (if you've filled it out) and an 'unban this user?' link would be useful. It could be displayed at the top of the profile.

Description:
Something could be added to the Navigation Strip as well?

Title:
Improvements for preview pop-ups


Area:
entries


Summary:
This is a new version of my previous suggestion : https://dw-suggestions.dreamwidth.org/1492300.html. As lightboxes, which are what I was thinking of, are entirely unpractical and users prefer pop-ups it is best to keep preview windows as pop-ups. However, I find previews a bit impractical in their current form because they don't let you post your entry, nor get closed automatically when you've posted it. I'm also wondering if we need to see more than your entry in the preview window. If I preview my entry in the site skin for example, a good portion of the window (viewport) is occupied by the site header, making me scroll down if my entry is a bit long. Do you, fellow users, find being able to see (and use) the header useful?


Description:
These are the things I'm suggesting but feel free to come up with other ideas, or better ways to implement them:
*A 'post your entry now' button (copyright to sporky_rat) in the preview window which will post your entry (duh) but also close the preview window and trigger the success page in your main tab.
*As the preview window is not being updated dynamically, a 'back to editing' button which closes the preview window and brings you back to your editing tab (you're still free to refresh the window if you prefer keeping both tabs open and doing things that way)
*Or, if that can be implemented, a preview window which is being updated as you type (jducoeur also mentioned having editing and preview side-by-side or top-to-bottom which I think is an interesting idea. I don't know how accessible it is, if users would prefer it, how it would work on smaller screens, etc.)
*A preview window where the actual entry is more prominently displayed and other elements are hidden or do not take so much space (like a light version of the site skin/your journal or maybe only for users who display entries in the site skin?).

Title:
Take image descriptions from the image meta-data

Area:
image hosting

Summary:
Save time in creating image descriptions by taking them from the image meta-data, using that to pre-fill the image description form.

Description:
When one uploads an image to the DW image hosting (yay!) you are able to drag-and-drop or select an image to upload, and then you get presented with a form which has things like "Title" and "Description" in it, which you have to fill in. But a lot of my images already have descriptions in the meta-data (e.g. the "Comment" field in a JPEG file). It's a pain to have to type all of that in again when I already did it once. What I would like to suggest is that the image uploader read the meta-data from the image, and use that to pre-fill the form. The user then can edit that as they like, but if they're already happy with what's in their meta-data, they can just save what's there without changing it. This would also be useful if someone is using the old "upload by email" interface which used to be the only way of uploading images to DW. That interface could use the meta-data of the image to fill in the Title and Description information, which the user could edit later on the DW website. As for what meta-data to use, I think one could use the filename for the Title (that's what LJ does) and use the JPEG "Comment" field, or the "Caption-Abstract" field from the EXIF data for the Description.

Title:
Suppress content in inbox notification

Area:
Inbox

Summary:
Make it toggleable as to whether the *content* of a private inbox message is sent in email. Currently the whole message comes with the notification, instead of just saying "you have a message".

Description:
DW is known for its superior privacy features. One thing it *doesn't* have - yet - is truly secure messaging, i.e. the only thing that goes outside DW is "you have a message". However, some people like using email as a vehicle for interacting with their social media. So I think in our privacy settings we should have a radio button: "Send content of messages with notification: yes/no" We could do this for comments, too, as a 2.0 thing. You could go one step further and make the "from whom" part togggleable too. Some messages are more sensitive than others... f'rex, the fact that I got a message from, oh, say, Bernie Sanders or Coretta Scott King or Dan Rather would be far more sensitive than getting a message from Joe Random I went to school with who didn't amount to much. I don't think we should go down as far as per-user.... that's a little much, and if you're that level of paranoid you should probably just turn off the "who" altogether.... but still. Having "you've got mail" land in your Gmail or Yahoo inbox where g-ds know who can see it is a lot safer than "meet me outside the palace at 2am with the gunpowder! Cheers, Guy"...

Styles: make it easy to list your IDs on other websites in profile module

Area:
modules, interoperability

Summary:
Dreamwidth displays links to other sites on your profile page but not on your journal. I suggest adding picture links to your other accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) to the profile module (or to another module if that's a better idea).

Description:
The idea is that you could enter your usernames on other sites and Dreamwidth would automatically create the appropriate picture links to the other accounts using the correct logos and display them into your profile module. This can already be done manually in the custom text module but I don't see why it shouldn't be easier to do. This is a pretty standard feature on several major websites now and I feel it's missing on DW. Ideally this could be further automated by using the 'other sites' part of your profile page and a simple option such as 'show links to other sites as filled out on my profile'. However, this part of our profiles is missing major sites such as Facebook, Instagram and YouTube so that would limit the usefulness of this new feature imo.

dawnmist: My homebuilt gaming keyboard - version 1 (Default)

This is a quick post to record the changes I needed to make to the Bluetooth driver for an Edimax EW-7611ULB wifi & bluetooth usb dongle to get the bluetooth working on the (currently) new Raspberry Pi 4.9.11 kernel. Hopefully it can help anyone else using this adapter when they upgrade their Raspberry Pi.

The original instructions and source for installing the drivers for this adapter are published by Edimax themselves at: https://edimax.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/14000047172-how-to-install-ew-7611ulb-adapter-on-raspberry-pi - but they currently cover installing the drivers for a Raspberry Pi running kernel 4.4. The wifi driver installation documented by Edimax works fine. There is one minor modification to the bluetooth driver source code required so that it will compile properly due to kernel api changes in kernel version 4.9 for the HCI driver interface.

In Section "(II.) Bluetooth Driver Installation", before running "sudo make install -s", you need to edit the file bluetooth_usb_driver/rtk_coex.c. At line 448, change

#if HCI_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(3, 10, 0)
#if HCI_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION(4, 4, 0)
	bt_cb(skb)->req.start = true;
#else
	bt_cb(skb)->hci.req_start = true;
#endif
#endif
to:
#if HCI_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(3, 10, 0)
#if HCI_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION(4, 4, 0)
	bt_cb(skb)->req.start = true;
#elif HCI_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(4,9,0)
	bt_cb(skb)->hci.req_flags |= HCI_REQ_START;
#else
	bt_cb(skb)->hci.req_start = true;
#endif
#endif
Save the change, and then continue with the instructions by running the "sudo make install -s" command.

Otherwise, follow the instructions on the Edimax link to get both wifi and bluetooth working properly with this adapter on the Raspberry Pi.

There's two points of congruence, but they aren't necessary for me to enjoy knowing him. He has a wry sense of humor, a good eye for art (he's also a dab hand at painting himself), and in short, has always been a pleasure to know. I hope today was a good day for you!

A second birthday person is [livejournal.com profile] jessalrynn, and I am very glad I've had the chance to meet her via pixels, if not in real life. She is an excellent writer, and she shares my love of the Ninth Doctor, of the Whoniverse from First to Twelfth, of democracy, of resistance to tyranny, and deserves the best birthday, and the best year possible. I hope 2017 is good for you!

So I'm doing a gimmick run of Y; not only am I playing it en español, I'm pretending to be a reformed Team Flare Grunt. That's why Grace and her son (I wanted to see what the boy clothes looked like, okay?) moved to Pueblo Boceto (Vaniville Town, Asame Town): to give him a fresh start. Maybe the publicity from being the son of a Rhyhorn racer was part of the problem, who knows? Anyway, so his starter's a Fennekin (fire! familiarity!), who totally coincidentally ended up female - I reset once out of habit and then huh, okay, going with it.

The gimmick comes in in that I traded over my team in eggs, just like I did in Alpha Sapphire, except instead of "hey these guys would be a good team together" I went with something Team Flare could have - i.e. eggs that he liberated before leaving Team Flare. So he has a Zubat (with Inner Focus, not Infiltrator, and man I am already regretting that, but I wanted it to hatch out of a luxury ball...), a Gulpin, a Scraggy, and an Electrike, and for a HM slave he'll have a Kabuto, since Team Flare also steals fossils.

Until I come up with a better idea, I'm naming everything I catch as if it were part of the Imperial Radch, because coming up with names starts to get hard after a while. The Fennekin is Uno Xabi Uno, the Zubat is Uno Xabi Dos, and so on; then the things I catch are starting out as Uno Amaat Uno (the first thing I caught, a Pidgey) and I'll do that in sixes (instead of twenties) for... ehh... a while?

Title:
Allow users to specify an account as a roleplaying account

Area:
accounts, statistics

Summary:
Allow users to specify an account for roleplay without affecting paid account services.

Description:
This is a suggestion mainly for statistical purposes! Dreamwidth has an active, sizable roleplaying community, a consequence of which is that there are a lot of "character accounts" scattered across the site. As someone who's very curious about DW's site statistics, I can't help but think that means there's a lot of essentially fictional data skewing things one way or another.

If possible, I'd like for roleplayers to be able to specify an account as being made for roleplay. It would have to be in a way that doesn't affect paid services, since some get paid/paid premium accounts and some don't. In addition to being able to choose it during account creation, there would also need to be an option for existing accounts to "switch over", since there are many, MANY existing character accounts.

Challenges involved: oh boy! I'm not at all familiar with site coding, especially Dreamwidth's, so I can't imagine how complicated this might be. I also don't know how many people would actually use this option, but I thought I'd throw this out there anyway.

System for Marking Entries to Read Later

Area:
Entries

Summary:
Similar to how AO3 allows you to bookmark fic to read later, it would be super convenient to be able to mark a DW entry on my reading page for later, especially if you often read Dreamwidth on mobile.

Description:
I try to read my reading page every day, but I don't always have time to read everything on it, especially when someone is doing heavy lifting for personal issues or has written a long, meaty entry I want time to digest, or hey look there's fic and I don't have time for it right this second but I really want to read it. I often read on mobile, and it's not really feasible to keep dozens of tabs open in mobile browser until I can come back to them. So, I'd love a way to store entries to read later that's separate from the memories feature (which in my mind is for stuff I've already read and want to remember.) I think this would make DW easier to use from mobile as well (oh look there's a post full of images, I don't want to look at that on a cell connection.)

Fully threaded comment tracking emails using more than two References: headers

Area:
comment tracking emails

Summary:
Fully threaded mailreaders use the References: header in the email to build the tree structure of emails, expecting to find *all* direct ancestor messages' message-ids in the header. Currently comment notification emails only include up to two message-ids in the References: header -- one for the post, one for the top comment in the thread -- preventing the actual tree structure from being built by the mailreader. If all available parent-comment-of-parent-comment message IDs are included, a correct tree structure will be available in the mailreader.

Description:
I tracked a large comment meme and sent it to a fully threaded mailreader, only to find that the tree structure of the comments was not preserved. Threaded mailreaders use the References: header to build the tree, and all direct ancestor comments of the comment in question should be included. Currently in the email the only message-ids included in the References: header are for the post and the top-level comment. Result in the mailreader: chaos (due to the large size of the comment threads). Solution: include more references (all parent and parent-of-parent comments) in the References: header.

Title:
Reconsidering the Ability to Delete All Entries/Comments Associated With an Account Upon Deletion

Area:
accounts, entries, comments

Summary:
With the dramatic increase in recent years in both online and real-world harassment, I would like to consider revisiting the 2010 suggestion to give users the option to delete all entries/comments associated with an account upon account deletion.

Description:
The last time this suggestion was raised was in 2010, and it was rejected then. However, I think it's long past time to revisit the possibility of being able to delete all entries and comments associated with an account upon account deletion.

There are a lot of reasons people delete accounts. Sometimes those reasons are just a lack of time or interest, and that's okay. But sometimes those reasons get a lot more serious. We over-share sometimes. The people we meet online become friends, and we get lax about sharing personal information that perhaps shouldn't be shared in public internet spaces. Most of the time that never becomes a problem--most of the people we meet online are great. But sometimes the people who have access to your entries/posts/comments aren't great, and that can have repercussions irl just as easily as it can have repercussions online. The last few years have seen a dramatic uptick in everything from revenge porn to death threats to hacked accounts, and while stalking and real-world harassment are rare, they happen, and they're happening with increasing frequency. They happen often enough that (as of the time of this writing) a tumblr post about tips for how to disappear from the internet has over 760,000 notes.

Right now, Dreamwidth allows its users to delete comments manually, and to see the last 100/150 comments posted on paid/premium accounts, but many of us have posted thousands of comments over several years, and trying to find every single comment and offhand remark ever posted is an endeavor that's anxiety-inducing at best and impossible at worst. Giving users an option to automatically delete every post/comment they've ever made, even those made on outside communities or journals, would alleviate that burden entirely.

The biggest concern with this suggestion-and the concern that I saw raised most often on the 2010 post--was that it would inevitably leave conversations broken. There are ways to mitigate that: a suggestion I saw raised in the 2010 post was to add an "orphan all comments" feature in addition to a "delete all comments" feature. AO3 currently has a popular analogous option for those who want to remove their association with their fanworks without deleting them entirely. A quick review of several LiveJournal posts will also show that broken threads are in the minority, so we may not have to worry about that too much. Even if they weren't in the minority, though, it would still be a necessary evil; our conversations are important, but I don't feel that they should be more important than the safety of our users.

Summary:
Ability to download all current icons on your journal (active or inactive).

Description:
I know that I'm not the only one that sometimes looks at their long list of icons after some kind of computer failure, and wants to back them up on the new machine. Or maybe they were linked by a url and you forgot to save them. Maybe you stopped having a paid account, but want to be able to reupload them with ease after you get a chance to pay for the account again (Submitting another suggestion on this topic as well).

I think it would be very helpful if there were some option that would let you batch save the image files currently on your account, preferably with the keyword or description as the name. Compression has improved and should allow users to download a backup of their icons in a zip file they can unpack on their computer.

In addition and/or alternatively, perhaps there is some way to make a metadata file that would take less room than the icons, but contain the information about them and their keywords and descriptions, or a file that can be added to the zip folder that contains this information to make the re-upload of icons easier.

Yorkshire Pudding

Feb. 21st, 2017 08:49 am[personal profile] watervole
watervole: (Default)
 Good longsword session last night in spite of my voice being crap.

My possible new dancer did show up and she enjoyed herself.

Even better, her daughter did too.  Not dancing, but sitting down reading the library books. Her daughter has Down's Syndrome, but she was in her element sitting in the children's corner with all the picture books.

In spite of the usual problems of being a small group (the odds of being below critical numbers are high, as it only needs a few people to fall ill...) we managed to work on the new four man dance I'm writing - now called 'Yorkshire Pudding' -and progress further  on Lingdale - a traditional 6 man dance.

It's starting to come together, but once people master the basic moves it becomes important to work on the timing and that's where we still need to improve.

Not sure if any of you will be at Redemption this weekend, but if you are, come and join in the longsword workshop!

Lightboxes are a bad idea so I've submitted a new suggestion to improve our current preview pop-ups. Please comment on this one instead once it's approved. :)

Title:
Have previews load on same page in small pop-ups

Area:
entries, comments

Summary:
We have wonderful magic for Quick Reply and a nice pop-up for browsing icons. I'm thinking that something along these would be nice for previews too. So no more loading the preview in the same tab (like DW does for comments) or even loading it in a new window (like DW does for entries). Just a small pop-up you could post your entry and comment from if you're happy with what you see or with a link to go back to the editing page, which would close the pop-up (it is currently not possible to post an entry from its preview page or go back to editing from there; you can only close the window). This type of previews is already implemented on several sites.

Description:
On the Comments preview page, there is additional info (such as which HTML tags are allowed). I think this info should be accessible before you click preview (I don't see how you're supposed to know you have to click on preview to get it in the first place). It could be via a ? button or a text link.

Feel free to suggest better implementation! There may be even better preview magic I haven't seen yet :)

I suggest adding a help button (i) or link to help us with editing. If you have forgotten which HTML tags are allowed or how to write something in Markdown, you're currently out of luck on the beta page. There is not 'help with editing' link anywhere.
