Scott Jangro is the owner of and has documented roots back to Mayflower passengers Stephen Hopkins and William Brewster. If you're wondering what he's doing when he's mysteriously absent, here's some links to other stuff he's responsible for:

Fun stat: As of right now, journals have been viewed 80,296,192 times overall on FTC.

I may make an overall version of this page for the fun of it.

by ngairedith on 2019-08-03 23:56:10

thanks Scott, yeh that is a fun & interesting feature.
The overall 80M is pretty substantial - roughly 104 times a day since day 1.
see what I did there 😁

by ngairedith on 2019-08-04 00:07:40

👀 my math teacher would have a fit!

ngairedith!! 80,296,192 views / 6,253 days = 128,412 per day
= 89 views per minute, every minute of every day, for 17 years
Now that is substantial

by FTC_admin on 2019-08-04 00:23:21

Oh wow, that IS substantial!

by tonkin on 2019-08-04 06:05:41

Thanks from me also Scott. You have my vote.
Amazing - 89 views per minute for 17 years.
Will also give ngairedith my vote for being a good student.

by ngairedith on 2019-08-04 07:35:43

Would like to see profile names of those who give comment votes (both + & -)

by tonkin on 2019-08-07 11:49:44

How about allowing members a little time to edit their reply to journals after they submit their response?

We all make the occasional error with names and dates and I don't think a 15 minute time laps will change the course of history.

Or would it?

by Scott_J on 2019-08-07 12:01:40

No it wouldn’t. Lots of forums and such allow this.

It’s a simple matter of programming.

And @ngairedith, you’d like to see who gave you the pos/neg votes? I believe when I announced that I said it would be private always. Because of the downvote mostly.

If I removed the ability to downvote I’d be ok exposing that, like Facebook.

Maybe the downvotes aren’t really needed? I did it to help identify spammers and bad actors and maybe it’s not needed anymore.

by ngairedith on 2019-08-07 12:54:12

You're right.
A downvote is pointless because it is not constructive. The writer has no idea what the voter doesn't like or doesn't agree with. If someone really wants to 'downvote' (aka disagree) then they should word it in a comment as to what or why, making suggestions/corrections.
A simple upvote more or less just says 'thanks.' Their ID would let the writer see who he has helped.

OR, write a post for an opinion poll first

by Scott_J on 2019-08-07 14:03:40

OK, downvotes are gone. Votes changed to likes. We are becoming facebook. I resisted, but resistance is futile. :)

I'll look into showing *who* liked somewhere. That's a bit more complicated.

by ngairedith on 2019-08-07 14:29:03

😂 resistance is futile mayhap
but we will NEVER be facebook

by tonkin on 2019-08-07 14:50:37

Hang on...
Check the votes again.

by janilye on 2019-08-07 14:53:22

oops they went to remove
sorry ---wasn't me

by janilye on 2019-08-07 14:54:11

now they are unlike

by janilye on 2019-08-07 14:59:01

So is ng going to know that it was me who ticked unlike on all her journals

by ngairedith on 2019-08-07 15:11:15

😁 yeh janilye - I'll know

by Scott_J on 2019-08-07 15:25:26

To be clear, unlike is only to remove a like, not a downvote.

Edit: I wasn't quite finished removing the up/down which still showed after clicking like. Seems good now.

by Scott_J on 2019-08-07 17:32:10

@tonkin you can now edit comments for 15 minutes after posting them.

I will probably add an indicator that it's been edited like some forums do.

by tonkin on 2019-08-07 18:01:56

Thanks Scott.
Did a few tests and it works well.
No indication to say this comment was edited after it was submitted. Does not matter anyway.

by Scott_J on 2019-08-07 18:23:27

yeah, I haven't implemented that note that a comment was edited. I don't think it matters, especially since there's the 15 minute limit.

by ngairedith on 2019-08-07 23:56:11

I like that it doesn't say it was edited
Good suggestion tonkin - pet peeve of mine was not closing the url properly when adding a link and not being able to fix it.
