LJ must adapt - UPDATED

Posted on 2005.01.20 at 16:54
OK - I'm going to write to LJ - and if you have suggestions, and/or want to be included, make comment below - as usual...

we can keep this going for a while

Let's see...


1 - LJ needs a CLOSEST FRIENDS ONLY switch

2 - LJ needs to include a little note pad / calendar where friends can make quicky notes

3 - LJ needs to have a multi-factor search - like for "all LJ people in Rockford" + "who eat rabbit" - or - "all people interested in punk rock" + "and feminism"

4 - LJ needs to allow us to put a tiny bio after our name, along with our city. Then when we make a comment, the person can immediately remember who we are - he/she could even be allowed to add an additional identifier.

5 - We should be able to list our friends according to their city, for better identification.

6 - If we accidentally make a jnl entry that is "EARLIER" than our last entry, then there should be a "backdate" button immediately available. Otherwise, our entry gets deleted.

OK

I guess I kind of knew that - but know nothing about them really. So shut my mouth.

I love number 1 and I think that would be a great thing to have. I know that I've spent hours looking for that feature before. :D I know that you can group your friends list in a way that you don't have to read certain people's entries and so on, but I've never been able to find a way to write entries only certain people can see.

when you set up the custom list, it's true that you have the option to read that group only.

you can also post to that group only.

when you are writing or editing a post, if you have custom groups set up, under "public, friends, private" is the "custom" option, which when you click, brings up all the custom friends groups you have set up.

LJ is amazingly versatile, which makes up for it's lack of user-intuitivity.

user-intuity

It sounds so promising - and yet so complicated to my mouse brain.

Does one go to "manage friends" - or to site map to customise friends? I'm sure I'll find out eventually.

OK

I guess that's what I mean.

I started a select journal, by the way, which you're invited to - for talking about my novel, and any other writing you or others might be doing.

So - I guess this would be a way of making a CLOSEST FRIENDS ONLY thingy, and if one lists that journal name as a FRIEND, then one can read and respond to those posts and comments. hmmm. there's prolly a flaw in this I'm not thinking of. I revel in stupidity.

Re: Good Idea ...

*looks around nervously*

haha jk... no rabbit for me... but Thats a good idea except they would make that for the people who pay for their accounts and us poor people would be left out.

Re: Good Idea ...

I know. That's quite crap actually, considering I don't own any American dollars. I own pounds sterling ... and not much at that.

Re: Good Idea ...

Ah - you're safe. Britain will be doing comparatively well soon, while the USA is to sink into anarchy and squalor.

Re: Good Idea ...

That's so true! You need to be on the LJ executive board.

Re: Good Idea ...

I am very selective of my friends - that's why I don't have any in real life. My dog likes rabbit.
