Topic on Talk:Structured Discussions

I posted a spec for an updated version of the Hide function at Flow/Hide spec. I think this new version will match the current talk page functionality more closely -- hidden topics will actually be removed from the board view.

The spec includes rough wireframes, which are not mockups -- It won't actually look exactly like that, but that's the functionality change that I'd like to build.

I'm interested in hearing what you think -- especially from Gryllida, because I know you have a lot of ideas about the moderation actions. What do you think of the new ideas?

In my view hiding should have a clear entry point - an "edit" button. It should not have separate entry points. This would make it less confusing.

  • I click 'edit' on a topic title and delete button appears there which deletes the whole topic
  • I click 'edit' on someone a message and the delete button also appears there

So instead of focusing on a single feature, I would focus on the bigger harder work mentioned here - improve refactoring of talk pages and ability to edit comments of others. This would take a long time to implement and would be praised by many people, including ones who handle massive requests for comment.

I really don't think having to first go to "edit" makes sense at all for hiding a topic. Edit and hide are two separate things.

Gryllida (talkcontribs)

I disagree. This hide implementation removes the topic from the board completely, for one. For two, even if it didn't, touching others' comments falls into "edit" category.

Late reply: A pointer to the other thread where yourself and Diego Moya discussed a similar idea: Entry points for moving and hiding discussions. Yes, I'm looking forward to refactoring/merging/splitting features. I do Thoroughly appreciate all your comments and suggestions - Sorry I can't reply to them all - I'm rereading many of them often.

Quiddity: I replied in that other thread again.
