Hey there everyone. Welcome to my to-do list.
This is a writeup so that content editors /gods can edit it.
I'm responsible for:
There used to be a list here. Now, it is no longer worth it to maintain it. I'm responsible for stuff. Let's leave it at that.
- Back up all current projects
- Clean out Message inbox
- Create documentation for firmlinks, edit God powers and how to use them, and E2 Editor Doc
- Create/update chatterbox FAQ for aliases, ONO, and the like. Roll together online only message.
- Edevbot writeup generation script
- Bug tracking for edev (N-Wing mostly has this)
- Find Meme's old cookbook from the early 1900s to node.
- Evaling code on the front page in Newsify!ed stuff
- Word Galaxy replacement
- Fix charred settings on user search - barely readable.
- Troll registry - notify gods when potential troll account is created.
- Ally with Mothra; destroy Mechagodzilla.
- Give N-Wing shit about his HTML nazi-ism
- Fix the server time
My Bugs: (ones that are really low priority)
- You currently need to add whitespace to the end of the nodeshell hopper for it to parse correctly, and none inbetween the writeups.
- You can theoretically make duplicate firmlinks. (DON'T)
- Trouble with deletions off the bottom of a usergroup list in JS maybe. Need to clean that up
- Scratch pad size warning does not work in iCab
- The firmlink code doesn't check for null input maybe. Who knows. Need to fix that.
- The font sizes aren't relative. Impossible to use font-scaling in IE
Feel free to edit this doc in any way, or to msg me, and I'll add things to this.
This is bones.
Two related ideas:
I. c_e's and gods should be able to edit a user's home node (or have a command line) so they can add an href link to a website. One address, 7th level power. We could put up an 'E2 website request' e2node for the brief period where everybody adds theirs and then just have them msg an editor or god when they hit level 7 or wish to change the site. The ce/god can refuse to link a site based on that site's content. It will not be a 'change your website everyday' sort of thing but a 'here is my website' or in lieu of that 'this is a website i would like to promote'.
II. For user's who wish to promote a website with writeups we've had terrible trouble with the E2 search and web url addresses. What do you think about having protocol for website promoters being the creation of a new user in the web address's name and then posting a few high quality writeups in the various topics covered by the website? A sort of (again, high quality) advertisement that informs an E2 reader about the topic(s) looked at on the site ... this way E2 gets a few good writeups while we advertise for them and they could then use the home node for more specifics about the site.
So, we'd have a user imdb.com with a writeup in 'movie' (or 'movies', film' whatever) discussing the film process, actors, Hollywood, history ... you get the deal. At the end of the writeup it would point the user back to the homenode for details on IMDB.com.
Users would probably want credit for this, as xp, rep etc wouldn't affect their regular accounts. Not sure how to do that short of a lot more clicks/msg's for gods group.
- It would lead to a ton of new accounts which could then be abused. This is a minor point, of course... especially if the accounts are linked to known users (they could have their usernames noted in the website's acct home node) and anybody can always create a troll acct anyway. Could also be helped by locking these accounts out of the chatterbox but that complicates things for the coders.
- Users could point to a pic file and put a bunch of porn/nazi evil bullshit in there or whatever... I don't think this is very likely at seventh level. They could do this on their home node now if they wanted and nobody ever has to the best of my knowledge. Whatever. Someone will report it and then we just take away the power and slap them or sumpin.
Of course, I'd have to create new user dembones.com immediately.
Search engine wish list:
- Clean caching
I found that Konqueror have problems to format pages from
Everything2 properly. Especially users home-nodes have a
tendency to be veeeeeeeeeeeery wide. See for example
Pseudo_Intellectual's home at
This might be a problem with Konqueror, and went right ahead
to report it there. While investigating, I found that
Everything2 does not validate as HTML or XHTML. Actually it
doesn't even come close.
I am not skilled enough with Konqueror to know where the
problem is (and I don't have the time to hand-fix a
Everything2-page just to test Konquerors "acceptability" :-(
So as a humble request, I would like to see better
conformance with HTML and XHTML.
Until then, I'll stick with Mozilla :-)
