Watched/Notified threads
« on: July 19, 2008, 03:20:28 AM »
I know this got discussed on here recently but I'll be damned if I can find the discussion..  ::)

I have now got a full page of watched threads, if I add more the oldest one drops off the page. I've even had to remove a few games I was reading... its becoming inconvenient. I know someone mentioned that you can set up an Elluiki list that will handle more than one page of 'set to notify' threads, can some kind soul give me the lowdown on that again, pretty please?  :-[

A couple ways around that that I know of... in your profile, under "Notifications and Email", it'll list all of your topics and forums set to notify, even if it exceeds a page, though that also means your My Topics page will drop the oldest one(s). The other option is to create your own page on the Elluiki and record all the threads there that you like, and simply check them frequently.

Back in my day, we didn't have the notification options we do now, and we went to each forum manually to see if the thread updated, and we liked it!

And we had to walk fifteen miles, through the snow, uphill both ways, just to get to a forum! You kids, these days, got it do easy...

I know, I know... I'm spoiled... if I annoy you just put me over your knee and smack me, it'll usually cure any waywardness. >_<

Until the next time...

I'll go make an Elluiki page then *wonders how the heck to do that*

Um, anyway, thanks!

Just give it time; this is one of the things Vek plans to work on when he can upgrade the forum, letting us keep track of as many threads as we feel like, in a nice, organized manner.

Just be glad you're not in >25 games, and wondering how you can justify cutting any of them. =P

Heh, fun, ain't it, to come online to a dozen updates, and six more by the time you finish with those? Good times, good times. =P

Hm, to some degree, until one of your playing partners is online too and begins firing back the responses. It gets to be like a game of whack the rat, trying to end the evening with no pink thread titles showing...  ;D

Realizing I have a life too that needs attending to is bothersome though... still better go do some other things now...

I think I have it worse... I'm in the UK and most of my partners are in the US, so when it's 2:00am here and I *really* need my bed, everyone else is just getting going and firing replies off... it can get a bit much some nights. I wake up some days to find PMs saying things like "Aw, you went off, we were just getting going!" and such. Meh.

Anyway, we seem to have gone off topic so unless another person has more advice to offer on the Elluiki set up I'll leave it there. Thanks for your help.

=P I'm in the same boat; I'm a late night person, so the only people I get to play with are other late-nighters, and you crazy foreigners.

Anyway, glad I could help, what little I did.

Okay, I've found a tab marked "My Watch List" on Elluiki, but how do I add to it/create one? And is the correct tool to use to do what I want? I'd like a list that colours pink when a new post is added like in the My Topics page. Is that possible?

Not on Elluiki, it isn't. The best you can do you Elluiki is to create a list of the roleplays you're watching/writing, and then check them often for updates.

I mentioned Elluiki... I love wikis :D  If you'd like I'd be happy to build a page for you and show you how to update it.  If you use IM clients feel free to IM me and we can talk about it, or we can discuss it here so everyone will see it.

@ Moondazed - thank you! You're awesome! No, I don't use IM, we can use PMs or do it here if that does not cause the mods/admins to think we're taking over the place.

What do you need first, a list of my watched threads?

I'd probably like to group them into single thread games and group/multithread games each with their own section. Then games I'm reading/following and finally perhaps a games in planning/other section.

To begin with I'll need the list of watched threads grouped in whatever way you'd like them grouped.  You can PM them to me if you like, or post them here.  It's up to you.

Actually... *hangs head* ...I have just discovered this. Bliss' post 3 posts down. That satisfies my requirments perfectly so there is no need to waste your valuable time on an Elluiki page for me, there is nothing else I would use it for.

So thanks, your offer was very kind *hugs*.

Ah! I'm sorry! Your post lacked the necessary clarity for this dimwit to know what you meant! *feels like a complete clot*
