New blog features coming later this week


In an effort to let people know more what's in the development pipeline, wanted to let you know some things that will hopefully go live later this week:

- premium level blog owners will be able to put comments directly under any post in their blog (instead of appending to the list of posts). A popup form is used to they can respond without having to scroll to bottom and reload the blog thread each time. Also modified the look of quoted text to go above the comment.

- "See Where I'm Quoted" page - will show the most recent places where someone has quoted you or has responded to your posts. This will be more important once the blog owners have easier way to respond (see above).

- Preview mode (you will be able to see what the post will look like before it goes live)

- Posters can delete their posts within 30 minutes of making it (I was almost done with letting people edit the post but realized that with the new "preview" mode, editing is less important).

- A bunch of new HTML-like support (tables, fonts, backgrounds, etc)

These features should be neat to see.

Thanks for your work...I'm having a lot of fun here...personally, I don't get involved too much with the "how things are done" side of things. I just appreciate the interest you've taken along with the effort to communicate....

Sounds good ....appreciate your efforts very much.

1. By "premium, is that equally for silver or gold? Sounds like we should consider going back on premium again .. also we are using it more now.

Not sure exactly what you meant by your 1st point ...
"to put comments directly under any post in their blog (instead of appending to the list of posts" .. .I'm not clear on that .... do you mean one can move comments by others to another post?

Sure hope is the case, as we use our blog as a "Discussion" blog for key topics with permanent posts containing permanent ongoing discussions / threads , (rather than using blog for constant new writings, as most do) ... would be great to place comments into "correct discussion" when commenters place them in the wrong post.

Thanks for improvements ... you guys are really doing a job ... making it far more desirable for us to take out membership again ... good business ... lol!!! Well Done!

Great glad you could work out a compromise and give the premium members some perks without taking anything away from the standards, it's appreciated.

Hope everything runs smoothly.

Thanks for your comments - I'm reading them but probably won't post again until the feature is live that lets me post directly to another post

Thanks Andrew... new features/changes sound really cool. Especially the addition of backgrounds.

Kat..could it be that perhaps you might have a lot of new posts? I know that at times you post anywhere from 10 to 30+ in a day...I wonder if that has slowed it down and you are unable to see your blog? or Maybe if you've updated your profile...that might happen too? Just a thought/guess. It sucks tho not to be able to get in...so I sympathize with you. Cuz I like to read your blog..don't always leave a comment, but I still visit and read. I hope you get it straightened out.

~~~ Just me, poppin to say HI! ~~

Kats - depending on member level, some people have access to posts sooner than others. There are some benefits for premium members.

Thank you for not allowing our blog voyeurs69in2003
to disappear. It is going strong and has thousands of viewers. AdultFriendFinder is getting better and better. AdultFriendFinder should allow quoting some other sources on the Internet, not as an advertising but as an education.

Thank you. I will be curious to see the interface you use for responding to comments. For those who get many comments they sometimes like to respond to multiples from within one comment. Rather than a one-to-one thing. I had envisioned a place along the side where one could put a check just like on shopping sites where one wants to compare several items. Then a link to respond to those checked. The screen would come up not necessesarily quoting each but maybe with the handle of each commenter (user choice if they want to quote or not. Maybe the difference between a quote vs reply link). Some folks seem to prefer to quote while others not and some do a mix.
Thanks for all your efforts.

Other interface thought. If the reply button when replying to many produced a screen with all selected quoted for reference so it would be easy to reply to each without scrolling up to see each comment. The button at the bottom then could be post commented or Post just with handle.

While I appreciate the "work-in-progress," the new features and the dialogue; I can't understand the logic of making "recent" responses take precedence over "total" responses. Certainly, you'd like us to be able to weed out the dead or inactive blogs. But when it comes to seeing who is most active over a period of time, a slow but steady blogger gets buried in the pile. While keeping both measurements is a good idea, I think reversing the order would be a cleaner, easier way to browse.

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

Glad you're excited about the site changes - I'm thankful for them. However there are some other changes needed. The post below I've been trying to have approved near all day. Originally, it contained no profanity (though I'm effing pissed now and would love to cuss). It did contain the name of a tv show and the main character - it also contained the name of the tv channel I was watching. Oh, and it contained one of those little smiley faces =

I've sent a question to customer service and received a rather irritating auto reply. Sent the question a second time after my post was again denied. Seems clear rules regarding what is acceptable or not on a blog would be nice. The post below continues to be denied. Please explain why. An even more wonderful idea in terms of customer service would be to receive an actual resonse to questions instead of being insulted with your auto reply.

Sincerly, Whispersoftly5 - The post in question is below - maybe you will provide better service and tell me what is so horrible about it that it can't be posted. Thank you.

p.s. the 6 views reflected are those made when denying the post. Sheesh! Give me a break!

Poor me. Sigh... I'm home not feeling well at all. Typically, if I'm home during the day I'm working (reviewing files, writing e-mails, on the phone, etc.). But not today.

Today I'm not feeling well. Today I'm laying in bed and watching TV. I hardly ever watch TV. I like it - but would rather pick up a book or go out or blog.

I've been watching this cool old show on a sci-fi type channel. I sort of remember it from watching TV as a child. The main character is a reporter or something and is sort of goofy. The first of these shows I watched today was about witches in the fashion industry - the goofy reporter got to talk with witches - manikins mysteriously moved and attacked him - people were killed - all through it he kept his cool and dealt with every situation. The show on now is about some woman who somehow takes people's youth in order to keep herself young. I know this is the concept of the show because I just saw her take the youth from a young man jogging in a park. Once she was done with him he was old and dead and all of her wrinkles were gone. They just disappeared. I don't know what's to happen next - I'm just giddy with anticipation.

Of course there are commercials. They're about medical insurance - life insurance - mobile chairs - new drugs - solutions to dealing with educational challenges - etc. The last time I was sick and at home watching TV the commercials were the same. Different actors - same messages. It's amazing to me how the types of commercials played vary on time of day and day of week. Even more amazing would be if 95% of the people who normally spend time at home during the day and watch TV are not chronically depressed for watching all the commercials. I sure would be if I watched these commercials every day.

The last time I was home and watching corny old TV shows I enjoyed them as much as I am today. These shows are great. The background music playing leaves something to be desired - but the people are beautiful. They've long hair, Afros and the natural look going on. At least that's the women. Most of the men I'm seeing are not as pretty and sadly none of them are wearing sexy glasses. What made for good TV back in the 60s and 70s is a far cry from what makes good TV today. I like the innocence of the 60s/70s TV - even though we really were not innocent - we at least somewhat seemed that way on TV.

Even though I'm not feeling well

Even though I'm watching commercials that serve as natural depressants

Even though I'm seeing all the beautiful 60s/70s people on corny TV

Even though...

I'm aroused.

I'm incredibly aroused.

And...

I'm home alone.

I'm going to masturbate - play with my toys and enjoy an orgasm or ten.

Even though I'm not feeling well - I'll be feeling great very soon...
