I've actually taken it completely out of the Systemswiki space to avoid confusion. @systemswiki - feel free to add it back if you feel it should be there. You can do so under [cog] -> edit discussion details.
Thank you @systemswiki - http://blog.sutra.co/2018/08/06/using-sutra-to-capture-emergent-understanding/
I don't get the difference between pod and discussion. Breaking up words is not a proper way of justifying text, so either hyphenate (as a browser feature, using a dictionary of the operating system) or expand whitespace. I also don't need an e-mail notification that the new user myself joined the pod/discussion, but that's a minor convenience/usability thing.
I don't understand how the tags in the profile get ordered. It's not alphabetically and not the order they're written in in the settings (maybe reflecting priority). Hashtags don't allow for multi-word tag names except with using minus or camel casing, as an edit field doesn't allow insertion of spaces to then prefix the hash-tag in front of it, in lack of auto-complete it'll be difficult to harmonize the different variants of names, if that's what the tags are supposed to do instead of serving as mere informational indications of interests (for which the hash wouldn't be needed at all).
@skreutzer - the term pod has been replaced by the term discussion. if you still see pod somewhere, let me know. i've tried to update across the board. good point on the tags, there's definitely room for improvement and i'm hoping to develop a bit of a cohesive tag strategy that lets you see things related to tags that include people, discussions, specific messages tagged like this #tagging, and resources.
and as far as resources, also plan to make it so that you can reference specific resource pages with direct URLs. which is not possible at this time. thank you for the direct feedback. really appreciate it.
and as far as tag ordering, i had thought that it was in the order they were written but if it isn't then they're probably arbitrarily ordered by how they are retrieved from the database. i'll add it to my list to take a look at that.
Don't worry, none of those are really urgent or something, it's just feedback of what I've encountered in my sometimes strange ways of using the web, it's for you to cherry pick what makes sense to change, I guess one doesn't want to implement every user request/suggestion, especially if there are design considerations why not to. ;-)
I saw "pod" at least at one place, before joining a discussion/pod I'm not already a member of, in the preview. There you have two green buttons, one "Join discussion" on the top right and one on the bottom left "Join pod", that was a little confusing for me, what to join and if they're different.
"pods" is in the URL. Keep it, redirect it, 404 it? I'm going to link to the pod variant right now in lack of a different resource identifier ;-)
ya, the pods resource identifier is a little more embedded in the system and requires more "surgery". for now I've updated the surface level references across the UI.
@lorenz Recently, a new discussion was opened, and the welcome message still mentiones "pod". Sure, the old welcome messages in older discussions probably don't need to be changed (would be history rewriting, right?), but for new ones, it appears to not have been changed yet.
@lorenz So @mindwheel changed his nickname, and the old @-mentions don't resolve any more, end up at my own profile page. Internal ID vs. display caption or alternatively replace all mentions?
It would be nice for a "pod" to be itself a container for more derivative threads of conversations (call them whatever you want: topic, thread, etc..)
For example, after I posted my "Artifacts" link, it would be nice if I could post asafollowuptothatspecificpost a link to an example RoE I've previously used, but I can't do that...
The followup posting is situated at the END of the pod thread / listofposts and is not connected to the "Artifacts" post, so its relevance is not obvious to readers of that pod.
Also, what text objects are you using for posting text? It doesn't seem to do expected word-wrapping, but rather hard truncation at ends of lines... ??
@samhahn - when you say more derivative threads of conversation, do you mean something like inline replies / commenting?
you can try tagging your comments which might help organize related notes that are added at different times. I don't think the feature has been fully implemented on the mobile app yet, but on a desktop / laptop browser, you'll notice that once you add a tag (after you refresh the page) the tags in the conversation will appear in the sidebar. I'm also thinking about a feature that will allow you to annotate older messages (and other people's messages) with tags.
Who knows if threaded conversation would be healthy for Sutra, or whatever feature bloat we as users might want to see. I think one can still edit the earlier messages, to add or remove stuff from it.
