Unfortunately its extremely difficult to allow sorting on those fields. I only calculate those values for the current page, it would be too slow to compute this across all the authors.

I was kind of hoping no one would notice that


Ooooh...I use that fairly often...it's a really easy way to find myself, I can just click on "# Stories" and I show up...

I don't care if it computes across multiple pages, but it would be nice to see at least who is on top as far as no. of views, ratings, story count...you know, like its been on the sister site...

We can't go back to that?

MissAdventure's avatar picture shows up in her profile...but, not in this thread...

http://www.storiesspace.com/forum/yaf_postsm5869_Hello.aspx#5869

Also, it shows up on the activity list on her profile page that she added me as a friend more than once...I should take that as a compliment, I guess...under "Friends" the friend adds are appearing in opposite order than they did before the upgrade...

Hello, yup, my fiends activity thread seems to be all over the place, showing pokes and things that never happened, lol. Might be because it's a new account created after the switch over.

BTW, any luck clearing out the remnants of my old account? I do find it slightly funny that I broke the whole site doing that :P

Because the display date is three days before the actual submission date, the poem never showed up on the front page...but, it's showing up under friend's activity that it posted...very strange...

I had thought my friends list was in order, but apparently it's not...I see that the latest friend I added, MissAdventure, is at the beginning of the list...as if she was the first added...

Btw...if somebody sends you a friend request...as many times you hit the "Accept" button, it will show in your activity that you added that person as a friend...

I just tested that one...

I don't think the "pokes" are making a sound...I've noticed I've been poked a few times, but haven't heard anything...

The mismatch between the stories and the forum avatars should be fixed now. You will need to change it again to update the forum.

Oooops...yet another "not good" thingy...

When you click on the friends icon on the upper right, the list of friends is not in alphabetical order as it should be...

Not good Gav, not good at all...


Hmm... mine has never been in alphabetical order.


I attempted to keep the same (custom) order from the previous incarnation. If you want the order to go back to alpha, choose the reset to default order link from your friends settings page.



Btw...I chose the "reset to default" option...and not only did my friends list under the icon on the upper right revert to alphabetical order, but it appears my friends list on my profile page is now in alphabetical order rather than date of add...

I don't think the badge system is working properly. I published my first story on the site but I don't have an author badge. Something else to go on the to do list.

I was also wondering about the badges, as I just realized that I am now a yearling here and I don't see the badge for it.

Actually there are no new badges (for now). I wanted to get this release out there in the wild as soon as I can, so things like badge generation had to wait. Once I have this running on all our sites, I need to get back and work out how the badge processing is going to work with this new db.

10 years for 1. Sounds like my marriage, 10 years to get one year of happiness.

Just want to say there Gav that I think you're living rather dangerously...people around here take their badges rather seriously...

If you are really going to put off badge generation just to take care of petty stuff like getting the site running...well...let's just say I have visions of anarchy, mass uprisings, coup d'etat, bloodshed and shootings in the streets, assorted lootings and lawlessness, and generally other activity that might resemble a scene out of an older Schwarzenegger movie...

You might want to hire a bodyguard and wear a bullet-proof vest hanging out in the forum...just saying...

I missed out on my Yearling badge by two days... how cruel is that?

But I'm happy now.

I can move my stories up and down and the #stories button works again.

This is a wonderful idea, but I don't know if it's me (probably yes) or you, Gav (never) but when I view the pdf, the formatting is incorrect. Sometimes words are joined together and spaces are missing.

*Note: I tried the top story on the front page at that time (can't post a link but it was My life by lafayettemister) and that is what happened, yet the story itself looked fine. Have tried others and no problems.

I'm yet to work out the difference between the friends lite version and normal version. Maybe after another wake up coffee, I will work it out
