UPGRADES DONE

Postby Dr. Goodword » Sun Jan 10, 2010 12:12 am

We have just updated our MySQL database software which allows us to upgrade all our databases including this one. We accomplished this without any disruptions or format change. I'll see if we can incorporate some of the changes you have suggested.

We only repeat words that were done four years or more ago. This is for the benefit of those who have signed up in the past four years and haven't seen some of our best words. When you ask Dr. Goodword to do more work, remember what he is getting paid for all this ($0/annum).

Suggestions

Postby Slava » Mon Jan 11, 2010 8:51 pm

1 - is it possible to make the signature a permanent fixture? That is to say, what the signature was at the time of the post remains. Currently, when we change it, it changes on all posts ever made. I'd like to see the changes over time, personally.

2 - most definitely find a way to have all daily words automatically sent to the Discussion board. It doesn't see a lot of traffic, but that may be because it's currently not all that reliable, with many words not making it there.

3 - could we see fewer repeated words? Please?

If possible, I would like to have the ability to upload an avatar without having to link to the web. I think more members would have them if they could simply upload a file.

I totally concur with saparris, above, please. While
"words" are the purpose of the site, an identity of sorts
is also important. A picture (they say, and I do not
necessarily agree) is worth a "thousand words".

Posting Good Words

Postby Dr. Goodword » Mon Feb 01, 2010 10:35 am

Posting the Good Words to the Agora is the last thing I do before retiring at night. Sometimes I retire late or get sick and don't post them. However, all I do is copy, paste, and add the boldface and italics--the url to the sound file. Anyone can do that. So if I miss a night, i would anyone's doing that task one or two nights.

Christmas is another thing. I do a week or 10 days in Colorado with my grandchildren over the Christmas holidays and have little time to work on the website. We also repeat topical words on or around holidays for reasons i would hope to be obvious. That will not change.

Thanks for the suggestions, though. I'll see what Andrew can do.
