So I made a new web site

Postby stevenf » Wed Dec 13, 2006 7:27 pm

...and I don't really know what to do with it.

It's a BBS / message board / image board sort of thing. Kind of 4chan meets digg meets.. I don't really know. I just wrote it to learn some new programming tricks.

And, as if that wasn't dumb enough, it's completely anonymous.

Maybe you can tell me what it's for?

Interesting idea. I can't really think of anything to contribute to it, though.

Hey, I'm not saying it's bad. I'm saying I'm unimaginative.

I'm enjoying myself over there just a little bit. Not that I have anything intelligent to contribute.

You are all welcome of course to tell your friends about the site, although I'm not sure why you'd want to at this stage. But hey!

You all do HAVE friends, right? *eyes forum suspiciously*

I don't get it.

Also, why do the forums occasionally resize themselves here? I went to click the link, and it decided to narrow itself, making me miss the mark. When I hit the reply button, they widened again, and once more I failed. What... what is with that?

Yeah, I'm just posting a load of old rubbish. BUT THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE!

EDIT: OK, it's a bit fiddly too see what new posts there are, what with everything being sorted by the threads' creation. I don't know if that's part of the idea, but it's something that occurred to me.

Actually, the design is pretty cool. I'm having fun being able to choose the name and picture for the post. Definitely a neat concept.

I changed some things on Somni for a better User Experience.

1. Posts now float to the top when they have new replies.

2. The index page used to just show the first 5 replies to each post. Now it filters out low-scoring replies, tries to fit in more of the high-scoring replies, and tries to show the two most recent replies. (You can still see the whole thread by clicking through to it.)

3. You can now embed YouTube videos simply by pasting the youtube.com/watch URL into your post.
