After something like 12 hours of downtime today when the entirety of JF was up in smoke, I'd like to suggest some sort of status setup, either a Twitter account or a status blog on Blogspot, something where the users could find out what's going on, or at least know if the admins of the site know that it's offline and will, at some point, poke things back to where they're meant to be. Even 140 characters to the effect of "We know, something broke, we're finding and fixing it" is preferable to a day of silence and timeouts.
November 4, 2010: In the last 24 hours, this post has received no fewer than 20 spam attempts of the same futile sort that frequently plagues JF in waves, so I am disabling comments.

It would be cool if you could blog photos directly from Flickr to JF like you can for LJ. Since the code is similar/will be pretty much the same in the near future, it probably just needs to be authorized through the admins here.

I finally updated with a real post here.
Where is the tagging system? I don't think I want to even post without it!

Subdomains for Paid Users
As another indicator and plus to being a paid user, maybe making the account a subdomain?
For example: http://converge.journalfen.net
I imagine this has been said but: S2 Styles!
Show the status of the community or have an indicator of the mod/maintainer on the profile?

Indicators of Paid Account Status
An indicator on a person's profile to show that they have a paid account? Maybe?

annoying the trolls
I've been on JF for over a year, and this is the first ever really-truly post I've ever made. Wow.
Anyway, this is kind of a silly suggestion (kind of?) but I think it would be oh-so-much fun, and it would certainly be a unique type of functionality that could possibly attract more people to set up communities here (possibly non-wank communities, even - yay!) so I figured, hey, what the hell, might as well suggest it.
So. My suggestion, and I have no clue how you'd implement it, is that, in addition to the option for moderators to ban individual users, there should also be an option for moderators to somehow change the status of a user from "member" to "troll" or otherwise mark the trollish user as such, and thereafter the text in all replies by any user to any of said individual's posts or comments would automatically be replaced by the word "Okay!"
Conversely, I suppose you could also force the text of the troll's posts to say something like "I am a moron. Please move along." if it's any easier. Either way, really. The first has the nostalgia thing going for it, but the second would probably be easier to code, I'd imagine.
...Okay, yeah, it's a pipe dream. But it's a good pipe dream, dammit!

Post by e-mail
Is there any thought on making post-by-email an available feature of JF? perhaps as a paid feature?

Google and robots spiders
Dunno if this is the place to post this, but I can't think of another.
I recently had the problem that one JF entry page showed up on a google search even though the journal setting have the 'no robot indexing' checkbox, well, checked.
I scouted to Google to see what I could do about removing it from their index, and came to the conclusion that pointing google to JF's robots.txt was useless, since individual journals are not listed in it. So, okay, I get it, what happens is that a journal is non-indexable based on the proper meta-tag being included in its source (when you make that choice).
Only... the meta-tag is *not* included in the source of an individual entry page.
So if somewhere (a site that's indexable, other JF journal or any other site), someone makes a link to an individual entry page, this one will get indexed, for lack of meta-tag inclusion.
I am not sure it is legitimate of me to wish (and ask) that individual pages be tagged with the no-index meta-tag... And I'm quite sure it might be a painful job to get JF set up for that... But yeah, I think it'd be a good idea. Hence, suggestion box.
Of course, it's a bit unsettling, 'cause it has to do with a certain RPS RPG... *g*
Current Mood: Useful

links go to livejournal
Some of the links from the fried paper style don't go to the proper places:
On the friends page "my user info" goes to LJ
On the calendar page "my user info" goes to LJ
On the recent page "my user info" goes to journalfen.com

Has anyone been able to get the LochJournal client to work with JF?

New layout available
(crossposted to jf_styles)
Uses tables, but only because I was too lazy to learn CSS2 at the moment.
You can see what it looks like here and here
To use, make sure you have an accont in which you can edit styles, and do the following:
- Click on create style.
- Tick the button for last-new. Pull down to "none or other public style". In the little box next to it, put in 125.
- Hit okay. It'll tell you it saved the style and called it username-lastn-new.
- If you go to the "edit" page now (there's a link right below the new name), you can change the name.
- Do the same for friends-new, day-new, and calendar-new.
The numbers for those are:
- friends: 126
- day: 128
- calendar: 127
This one works a lot better on most of the color schemes, but there are three where it won't work:
- Foresty Nature Kinda
Use it on the rest, or on your own, and you'll be fine.
If the font size looks big, it's because I decided it was time to code for maximum font-size change -- you can make the font size bigger or smaller, which, if you use px to determine font size, you can't do in IE6 for PC.

Question from the dim end
At the moment, there doesn't seem to be any way of searching for a particular user by username. Or maybe I've missed it?
Current Mood: weird
Wacky comments pages.
All the comments pages have started doubling up. I read to the end and I'm suddenly at the top again. I have no idea if this is a me thing or a JF thing.Rather large screencap of what the wacky comments pages are doing.
The first couple of times it happened I kept reading for about three comments before I realised I'd already read them. Me = Dork. Current Mood: happy

Might be a silly question...
...but I was wondering if it was possible for there to be a preview page for when you're trying to edit changes to your journal. I'd like to know how my journal will look like before I change the style.
If it's not feasible, let me know so that I don't nag anyone about it.
Just so you know, I'm ready to get a paid account whenever you get that set up. I don't really care what the features are, just set some prices and turn it on.

May I suggest standardizing the mood list so that the choices are all lowercase (except the abbreviations like OMGWTF)? The capitalization seems to be hit or miss at the moment.
