    hyim, I think we're going to pass on Markdown. It's a great tool for individual writers, I agree, and I've used it in other projects -- but I've found it's less suitable for forums. There's always going to be the unsuspecting user that doesn't know why the underscores in his URL turned into a broken link with italics.

    Good work. Looks like all the tricks you learned on DPH have paid off here. Looks good Ariana.

    Ariana, color me an idiot but what is the sink label?

    It's for conversations we want out of the way but have no reason to close. Sinking a thread sends it degrading down the timeline regardless of whether or not people are still posting to it. It should turn out to be a good way to clear out the top page from time to time.

    Ah, yes that makes sense. Thanks

    I've missed this before so I will ask. Is there any way to put in a footer every time you post other than manually?
  4.  (4.48)
    I believe not.

    no sigfiles = yay.

    yeah html signatures would really put the dirt and primary color stains on the right now clean slick vanilla interface.

    Ooooh, Ariana, the usability of this site is pure genius!

    (I just figured out the bit about pressing the "link", "quote"...et cetera buttons a second time to close the entry...I had just been typing in the codes myself...ugh.)

    This is the best forum I've ever been on. I love you, Ariana. If this was a woman, I'd be inside Whitechapel forever. Or *coughs* just stalk her.

    Your Flickr photostream id is a string of letters and numbers you can find by looking at your RSS feed on Flickr. It'll look something like 123456789@N01. Just cut and paste that into the "Flickr Feed" box (on the Account Options page) and hit save at the bottom of the page.

    finally worked out which code I was looking for as not terribly up on coding, I would suggest you alter the above statement to "look at bottom of your profile page and click on ( Subscribe to ian.mcrob's photos – Latest | geoFeed | KML ) or similar.
    thanks for the easy to use site though, when all said and done.
    I agree with this statement, though even with these more detailed instructions I can't find said code id. The worde 'subscribe' does not appear on my profile page. I have a free flickr account - is this a service not offered with free accounts? Or am I just really, really thick? Or both?

    How exactly does one look at one's RSS feed on Flickr? I's ignint on this issue.

    Joe, look at the very bottom of your Flickr photo page (not your profile, the page with all your pictures). Right above all the links for Activity, You, Explore, and Help, you should see a little orange square icon with "Subscribe to [yournames]'s photos – Latest | geoFeed | KML"

    Click on the "Latest" link, and look up at the address bar on your browser. You'll see a mess of a URL -- Mine looks like this:

    http://api.flickr.com/services/feeds/photos_public.gne?id=35382826@N00&lang=en-us&format=rss_200

    The part I've bolded there, between "id=" and "&lang" is what you want to cut and paste into your profile here.

    Wondering if it's possible to get an RSS feed per user's comments? For those of us of a lifestreaming bent, that want to hook this into a tumblr or something.

    Of course, can always do a work around with something like CoComment.

    Yes it is. Go to the search page and select "Advanced Search" (top right corner of the page). Do a search under Discussion comment search, and leave everything blank except "where the author was" (that'll be your username).

    That search result page should have the RSS feed links in the sidebar, and should give you a feed with your comments as you post them.

    Very nice.

    Edit : I just realized how useful this can be. You can as was said earlier pump it into tumblr, or aggregate the posts of the sexy ones to read with your morning coffee. Or you could aggregate the names of considered troublemakers and trolls in an elaborate web 2.0 version of wiretaps, having thus a watchful and suspicious eye on possible whitechapel unrest, nipping it in the bud. Oh wait. O_o

    Thanks Ariana! Precisely the level of detail I needed.

    It's not often I say "Explain this to me as if I was your Grandmother." :)
