Swapping out active poll table for something different

As we moved the active polls table to magazine last week or so, I'm going to replace it with the more active posts that are less that 2 weeks old. As I don't know how the databases will hold up, the first version will sort based on the # of comments (later it will be the number of commentors). Hopefully, this will help people to more easily find the buzz on the site.

I *might* later add a way to view the most recently commented posts (but a new commentor) so we can see which are the posts that are getting the most post action.

it would be better, if things just worked. (with or without the bells and whistles.)

Tell me your top 5 things to fix in blogs? We have about 15 changes being worked on related to performance of other parts of the site (a big redesign of the backend of the friends network and groups - should be faster and more useful).

As you might have read, I had to push out some other features, bug fixes, etc early tonight. I might have introduced a few new bugs especially on how posts show up based on level and ownership (was working on ways to simplify how blog counts are done). I think I got it right but you never know. Will keep an eye on things tonight.

Wow, even I understood this one! Either I am getting more savvy or it is just a glitch. I love the new search for "where i am quoted" feature and the font size and color changes. So far, so good with me!

I just want you to know that we really do appreciate all the work! We know that it is an ongoing process. And sometimes it takes a boo-boo to make a new change right. Thanks for all the work.

Thanks for all your hard work but one thing I'm wondering is will we in time be able to insert a picture into our post and bigger icons?

Thanks again

You mentioned that the table would sort based on # of comments. This made me recall that when you enable "Title View" in your blog, it automatically sorts by post date. This brings to mind some functionality enhancements:

(1) Allow the user to sort the table by clicking on column headers. This would allow them to see their most popular entries (sort on comments) or the entries which received the latest comments (sort on last).

(2) Put page links at top of table as well as at bottom (this should be consistently implemented throughout the user interface).

(3) Implement cookie, stored user preference logic or something similar that keeps track of the "last state" of the blog view (either title or original view as well as the current sort preference). When you return to your blog, the last state should be displayed as the default.

Your blog site is second to none
And people like me have great fun
With posts that incite
A state of delight
In folks who love sex a whole ton...

Ars longa, vita brevis.
