Time Flies

I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last updated. So much for a post a week. To say that things have been hectic is an understatement. I’ve been wrestling with SQL queries, database designs, and a bunch of other stuff that writing online doesn’t feel as relaxing as I’d like.

One thought on “Time Flies”

  1. Oh man, I don’t know if you welcome feature suggestions of not, but while you’re working on this much anticipated update, I had the coolest idea for a Post Avatar ability: avatars for member comments.

    Basically, this would add avatars to comments in the same seamless way that PV currently does for admin posts. It would allow members to upload their OWN avatars in the member’s version of wp-admin, and then select them from a dropdown while commenting.

    Perhaps somewhere in the admin’s config there could be the option to set a limit to uploadable avatars for members, like 100 or whatever.

    See… with various plugins, we can essentially now replicate every aspect of LJ. We can have post avatars, we can have moods, current music, comment nesting; members only post plugins can replicate friends only posts… the only thing currently impossible to replicate is avatars for comments, because all the plugins for comment avatars are made for just one unchanging image. But I really think that the avatar system of LJ adds so much to commenting.

    So yeah… just an idea. Hopefully I explained that okay. Good luck on your Post Avatar work!
