Hi Raven, today I tested the UNFRIEND feature using your name. (Smile).

The feature did unfriend, however for Tig, I did see an Error 'box' come on the screen implying the request would not follow through even when it did positively UNFRIEND.

(Though Raven you are the "friendliest.")

Eleven reply comments are stale (old) so they are suppressed.    If you click on the DISCLOSE button ( disclose.png?skin=ntNewsTalkers3&v=15770 )  the suppressed comments will be disclosed.

You can only call an IMPASSE within a thread and only on comments that come after your last comment within the thread.    That is, you will not be able to post a comment (get the last word) and then call an IMPASSE.

I IMPASSED you on your today's discussion article.

It works

I just noticed something. I can't call an impasse if I've replied to you. You have to reply to me, then I can call an impasse but then I better be quiet after that (because I can't reply lol)

clever

Experience.   NT members try all sorts of things.   Perrie is an encyclopedia of member tricks.

Hi Tig, I have a question: I was able to put you on IMPASSE on TG's comment. I have not 'spoken' to you yet. Is that proper?

 
 
 
TiG
9.1.7  TiG  replied to  cb @9.1.6    last year

I would say that is not proper; good find!   Makes more sense that you only issue an impasse on a comment where I was replying to you.   I will see if I can tighten this up without introducing a performance issue.   If not, I will not worry about it.

Hi Tig, @9.1 I am able to "Impasse" dear TG!! Sorry dear lady!

I have not discussed anything with her on the thread—yet.

I have not applied the change to prevent that yet.

The change for this is now in place.

I just set "IGNORE for dear Ravenwing. I see a hand symbol (5-6 times in a row). Question what does Raven' see on her side? Or is she made aware? (Maybe Raven' should Ignore me so I can see what it looks like.)

Is it practical to set ignore and still see past comments up to that point? Or is ignore a total and utter 'rebuke' while active?

 
 
 
TiG
12.1  TiG  replied to  cb @12    last year

The Ignore function is a personal function.   That is, it is solely for the benefit of the person issuing the ignore.    Issuing an ignore will not impact anyone else on the site, nor will it be known by anyone else on the site (including the moderators).

So if someone ignores you, you will have no idea (from the system) that you are being ignored.   This is by design so that people do not try to use ignore as a weapon.

An ignore will apply to all comments in the article; and all future comments from the individual in the article.   Of course other articles are not affected.

 
 
 
cb
12.1.1  cb  replied to  TiG @12.1    last year

Good. One more question: Will the list of "hand symbols" increase (1 +1 +1. . .) and be a resource to know the ignored party is still addressing some point made by the Ignorer? In addition, each time the Ignored comments will it automatically increase hand symbols on the thread?

Finally, is there a number on how many Ignores can be established before "swapping out" someone?

Dear Ravenwing, I thank you for allowing me use of your avatar. I will remove the ignore I established.

Cal, I IMPASSED you @12.1.1

That means you should see my comment @12.1 as IMPASSE

 
 
 
TiG
13.2.1  TiG  replied to  TiG @13.2    last year

Except now I cannot reply to your comment.   :)

Here is the answer:

One more question: Will the list of "hand symbols" increase (1 +1 +1. . .) and be a resource to know the ignored party is still addressing some point made by the Ignorer?

Every time the ignored party makes a comment, the comment will be placed normally but no text will appear, the info will be gray and the avatar will show as the hand.

Finally, is there a number on how many Ignores can be established before "swapping out" someone?

You can ignore everyone except yourself.   There is no limit on how many ignores are allowed per article.   There is, however, a limit on the number of impasses per thread.   That is configurable, but I believe the limit is set at 1 currently.

Well...It looks like it is working very well. The doing and undoing seems to be working as intended. I have not found any oops yet.

This will be fun when it first hits the main site. (grin)

14.1  TiG  replied to  ravenwing @14    last year

I just finished putting in some tricky logic.   Cal reported a hole in impasse.   While looking into that (fixed now) I discovered another hole dealing (again) with impasse when crossing hierarchic levels.   Basically, I needed to include the comment that defines the thread along with the comments within a thread for the purposes of impasse.   That turned out to be a real pain, but I think I have it working properly now.

The tricky logic dealt with situations like you entering a comment 2.4 followed by me replying to your 2.4 with 2.4.1  Once I entered 2.4.1 you can now IMPASSE my 2.4.1 comment.

So to remove a bookmark that you don't want, just click on the avatar of that comment and click on unmark. 

 
 
 
ravenwing
18.1  author  ravenwing  replied to  perrie1 @18    3 weeks ago

Yes, that is a good feature as well. When whatever you have bookmarked and no longer need/want it, being able to simply unmark it to delete if from the list works great.

So I've bookmarked, navigated to, and removed bookmarks with no problem, and navigated to a specific tracked item from the scrollable menu.  Anything else I need to check out?

19.1.3  Sandy1  replied to  Sandy1 @19.1.2    3 weeks ago

Oh, also looked for comments containing a specific text.  I like the highlighting of the searched text.  Nice touch.

19.1.5  author  ravenwing  replied to  perrie1 @19.1.4    3 weeks ago

I also like how there is a small green tag that shows on the Avatar of the comment or text you have bookmarked. Which makes it easy to find as well when scrolling through the comments.

 
 
 
TiG
19.1.6  TiG  replied to  Sandy1 @19.1.2    3 weeks ago

Here are the areas for testing ( see : Testing for Comment Panels ):

This release contains several features:

  • control panel for tracked comments (if the article is currently being tracked by the member)
  • control panel for bookmarked comments
  • control panel for finding text in comments
  • control panel for managing comment threads
  • new menu implementation for each comment (on the avatar portion of the comment)
  • bookmarking via menu (with a visible bookmark)
  • bookmark list (across all articles) as part of each member's page 

Generally, the testing would best be done by exercising the following features:

  • impasse and ignore
  • friend
  • bookmark (mark)
  • tracking
  • finding text in comments
  • accessing an article by clicking on a bookmarked comment from your member page
  • accessing an article by clicking on a tracked comment from your tracker
  • navigating (using the navigator that appears) for tracked comments, bookmarks and found text
  • switching between navigation of tracked comments, bookmarks, searched (found) text by clicking on the background of the panel (which makes the panel active)

Also agree. TiG did a great job in putting these new features into action. I have now tested all of the features in various comments and articles, and all appear to be working as intended.
