    Well done Russell, it looks to be a great evolution of your online work.

    Speaking of work, I suspect this will now make it even harder for me to get the paying stuff done.

    There you go again, blaming the system ...

  • Hadyn Green,

    Hear-hear, great system! I wish the email confirming my entry had said something like: You have now been assimilated into THE SYSTEM!

    But now I'm watching this like a reality TV show. Who is gonna get kicked out first?

    Nice idea Russell
    Of couse this just backs up my theory that you were cloned while in the States
    Your posts there and since then have been aceptable (or better) which is a worry for a right winger....or does this mean you should worry
    Great work

    An excellent initiative.

    The common meeting ground for intelligentsia, left wing academics, middle New Zealand and skinheaded jackbooted morons.

    I apologise in advance if my presence attracts the wrong crowd, but I apologise moreso if it attracts no-one at all.

    Good luck with moderator duties Russell and crew!

    A couple of usability niggles:
    - if you're in a thread, and you log in, you get deposited at the front page, and not where you were before you logged in.
    - if you post in a multi-page thread, you get deposited at the first page, not at the last one.

    But well-done!

    and when do we get to change those anonymous little grey people above our user name into actual avatars?

    This will happen as soon as Gravatar.com deploys its new server. It was under an enormous load during our testing phase so we disabled them temporarily, apparently the new server is "imminent".

    Other usability tweaks noted and should be rolled out in the next few days. Thanks for your patience!

    Russell: Is the intention to give all PA posts a "discuss" button, or only when the author decides he/she wants a comments thread?

  • Michael Hills,

    Great work guys, I've been hoping for a long time that some kind of discussion with other Public Address readers would be possible.
    I'm pretty optimistic for the success of moderation on here, considering how other places seem to manage.

  • red01,

    Wicked I like it...

    I think it is going to complement public address very well.


    P.S
    I know its only beta but, I think you need an edit function for the users post though

    Spooky.

    I'm sure the idea is that we'll all be much better behaved posting under our real names, but I can personally testify that it is possible to cause a ruckus doing things online under your real name.

  • Emma Hart,

    Yes, I've just realised (it's hot and I'm tired okay) that using my real name means I'm completely unconnectable with my normal internet pseudonym. It's like having a whole NEW pseud. I mean, it's not like this magic box connects with the real world in any way.
