View Full Version : Things I'd like to see on CC

Just a couple of small requests...

1/ Ability to edit thread titles would be good, particularly in the Correspondence Forum so we can see who is playing who in a title but also just as a useful feature if things have gone off-topic.

2/ The Edit time window to be increased to 48 hours from 12 hours. Often 12 hrs is insufficient time to reconsider a post or to fix up mistakes made from wrong info, etc.

3/ The shoutbox counter, either for the top shouters to be listed once again, or personal shout stats to be eradicated entirely. What we have now is just too in-between and makes people curious about metrics ;)

Hopefully implementation of these things will be relatively simple and I'm sure would be supported by most of the CC community.

Regards,
Bruce

Okay, you have 48 hours to edit thread titles...

It's not hard to change. I've discussed this with moderators twice and we have decided at both times that 12 hours is enough.

Hello.

While we are talking about this, something I thought mght be very useful is a search function - for example, if I wanted to find all posts containing the words Garry Kasparov, I could enter that as a keyword, and get a list of the relevant posts.
Since I am fairly new here I don't know if this is something that has been discussed before or is already available but for me it would be very useful to find particular subjects rather than read through all archived material.
Thanks.

W.E.

What do you mean?

If you want to search by titles only, that option already exists. If you want to see which post exactly mentions certain words, select display post instead of threads.

Maybe you wouldn't think it's stupid when people threaten you with legal action. I actually think 12 hours is too much, I would be in favour of something more like 1 hour.

He couldn't have touched you, it was all talk. You already have a disclaimer about the use of this board, especially the Unmod section.

I think Voldemort was a complete asshole for those threats too.

And guess what? I looked up the laws of defamation.. you're perfectly allowed to say things in public if:

a) They are true
or b) It is in the public interest to know.

Since I'd argue both those criteria were fulfilled, he couldn't do shit.

This is why we must be careful with what we write. Just as we must be careful with what we say. What is said cannot be unsaid. The same with writing here as there is no telling who has read it between you writing it and then editing it.

Better to write a post, read it and on reflection decide not to post it at all.

Another suggestion I have for CC:

An automated "best post of 2005" voting system via a button on each post which by clicking you can add to a shortlist of ten to twenty? contained in your user CP (cf buddy and ignore list).

This shortlist could then be edited and sorted in preparation for a final submission at the end of the year.

A post usually has its effect on the reader upon being read first. It is often pointless churning through posts at the end of the year to decide again which ones you liked.

PS If I did need to sort through posts how about an exclusion or "not" filter so for example that I can look for posts by starter which don't contain the word "metric" ... ;)

I will give you odds of 10/1 up to a limit of $100, that you can't find one dated after 1/4/2004. You have till 6.15pm 6/1/2005 to post one (that does not contain the word metric) here to collect.

In fact, without editing it would simply mean extra posts to clarify one's position and perhaps give some equivocation to prior misinterpreted statements... meaning more posts for starter! :cool:

Not legally binding.

or b) It is in the public interest to know.

Yes, but there is a catch you may be unaware of. In defamation law the burden of proof is generally on the person making the public statement. It has to not only be true, but you have to be able to prove in court that it is true. This becomes especially difficult when you are saying things about a person's intentions in making a statement.

But when it comes to court cases the plaintiff has to prove damage. Often quite hard to do.

True. But even if the plaintiff gets only very small damages, he/she nevertheless wins and the defendant is up for the costs of both parties. Even were there no order for costs, the defendant would have to pay his/her own costs. In a defamation action costs even of one party can be astronomic.

For slander (spoken word) you have to prove damage, for libel (written word) it is generally assumed that damage to reputation will follow and the question is determining how much money should be paid. As Denis points out the amount of damages is often small compared to the legal costs. IIRC one of the John Marsden cases featured a very trivial damages payout but colossal legal bills.

This must be your all-time worst logic post Bill.

Does Karthick know that you are trying to undermine the worth of the features he is trying to sell to PREMIUM USERS? You could get yourself suspended for such anti-cc behaviour.



You ask "Of course one must ask why you want to be inivisble in the first place."
Bill, the customer doesn't have to explain his objectives. There is no 'must' about it. Mind you own business; my invisibility was mine.

Since premium users can see invisible users then premium users see what all users are viewing via Who's Online.

In that way it collects all in the one place and is easily found when the time comes when a poster wants to read and use it.

That would be a useful beginning.

There was nothing new to me in those PMs. I could remember the previous thread here on TRANSFER titles; save what I did not know was the follow-on as to whether the GURU got his event recognised by the ACF retrospectively.



you saw fit to play your little games here.

Apologies for attempting some sort of style. I get stung when your mate AR keeps calling me boring.



I simply tried to save you from embarrassing yourself further by demonstrating your cluelessness on a matter even though you particpated in the thread.

What embarrassment was that Bill? I knew what I didn't know........whether or not the GURU's event was retrospectively ratified.


I wont make that mistake again and try and help you out.

I regularly post that I appreciate your help.



Next time I'll just highlight the cluelessness outright.

I have a share of these anyway already; never did find the antidote nor the magic armour.


You suggest to TCN that information should be in threads and not in the shoutbox. That may be well and good



I must say this surprises me. TCN can see nothing wrong and is comfortable with the staus quo; and I had thought your hopping in was to support his postion. Can it be that you think the SB is misused on occasion?


but having a brain to either remember what one previosuly discussed or possibly even using the search function also would be a benefit.

I think it is clear that I remembered all that was in the public arena.
Hands up all those who know if the GURU tabled (formally) his AUS. TFR Tourney results for title ratification?

There is a grumpiness in your post Bill that I putting down to the shocking weather in Sydney yesterday. In Melbourne we get some very ordinary weather in June; we all remember AR's remark last year about the 'sinister sky' at the VIC OPEN.Irrelevant rubbish.

Do you mean the 2 PMs you sent me re the NSW Transfer title and the ACF Transfer title?
There was nothing new to me in those PMs. I could remember the previous thread here on TRANSFER titles;If that is indeed the case then why didnt you inform your mate of the truth, rather than allow him to live in ignorance.
Perhaps you see doing so as somehow beneficial to his cause.

save what I did not know was the follow-on as to whether the GURU got his event recognised by the ACF retrospectively.
That was a minor part of it.
If you remembered the thread then why did you not enlighten your mate with the details.

Apologies for attempting some sort of style. I get stung when your mate AR keeps calling me boring.There was no style involved. You were just trying to be a smartass.


What embarrassment was that Bill? I knew what I didn't know........whether or not the GURU's event was retrospectively ratified.Then why not use the in formation you claim you did know to correct the misinformation being sprouted by your mates.


I have a share of these anyway already; never did find the antidote nor the magic armour.Putting ones brain in gear and fingers in neutral often helps. ;)


I must say this surprises me. TCN can see nothing wrong and is comfortable with the staus quo; and I had thought your hopping in was to support his postion. Can it be that you think the SB is misused on occasion?Occasionaly but not to any great extent. Certainly nothing to get to excited about.


I think it is clear that I remembered all that was in the public arena.In which case why didnt you pass on your knowledge to your mate on his board. You saw fit to ask a question rather than inform him of the facts.


Hands up all those who know if the GURU tabled (formally) his AUS. TFR Tourney results for title ratification?He didnt.
Of course even if he did it was unlikely that it would have been recognised as it was always seen as a Victorian event rather than an Australian event.
The reason I say this is believe only mexicans participated in it.

Ahh...thought so...you are a bit grumpy......................np.

Bill,
I exactly said to him....Bill has given me two PMs, "do you want to know the detail". His response was exactly as you read earlier today.


Perhaps you see doing so as somehow beneficial to his cause.


No. I left the decision to Matt. I made no use of my agenda.


That was a minor part of it.
If you remembered the thread then why did you not enlighten your mate with the details.
See above.



There was no style involved. You were just trying to be a smartass.

How can you overlook the artistic attempts of mine Bill? I have to leaven the CI stuff with other styles. ;)


Then why not use the in formation you claim you did know to correct the misinformation being sprouted by your mates.

Because I don't want to become the Bill_of_UCJ. :rolleyes:


Putting ones brain in gear and fingers in neutral often helps. ;)
Nice turn of phrase. :clap:



Occasionaly but not to any great extent. Certainly nothing to get to excited about.
I hope TCN is reading this....he can see no problem at all.

Then he is an idiot as the information regarding the Australian Transfer Champion title was already on this BB.

No. I left the decision to Matt. I made no use of my agenda.

See above.

Because I don't want to become the Bill_of_UCJ. :rolleyes:No. You would rather let him peddle his rubbish rather than post the facts.
In fact given you claim to have known the facts prior to my PM you could have posted them on his board in response to his original question, rather than ignoring it and just asking a question yourself. That behaviour just makes one question your motives.

I hope TCN is reading this....he can see no problem at all.I can see no reason for any action to be taken.

Could be that Starter does not want to install more gabage on his home PC than he actually needs. Nothing is for free. ;) Mirc was junk and I drop kicked it 5 mins after i downloaded it.

That is probably why it is not working for you then. The www.chesschat.org/irc app listens on port 113 so if that is blocked on your FW you will not be able to connect.


Think I will scrub around it until it is Click_and_Play.

Unless you bypass the FW this may not happen.

Actually, Bill, kegless's challenge to me to resurrect an abandoned thread (with a new outcome) has proved difficult to meet. It has taken me more then a year (but not much of a year ;) ).
Thus, the post was of some consequence; but we have lost our index functionality on 'worth of posts', so it is moot. :hand:

I can understand your sifting through the ashes (http://chesschat.org/showpost.php?p=92794&postcount=33) of the most recent outcome by our resident arsonist but there was one diamond that should be recovered and looked at through a prism from all angles. It was a terrific post by Kerry Stead; and was completely independent of our regional event.
I wonder whether I could persuade you to post Kerry's invitation on a new independent thread; thread title to your choice.
