I was in the middle of typing "As long as nobody complains"! 

We're off to a good start!

Satch: Some way to see all the people and/or posts for which people have supported oneself?  I think this may have been requested previously but cannot find the outcome of that request.


I've now added a list of people who voted +1 for a topic/reply. It's only visible to the user who posted and moderators.

That's cool. Really glad to see that. It's getting closer to the functionality it replaced :p : )

freitasm: I can work 1, 3 soon.

2 is the old "too hard as we don't track individual threads" and would involve a bit of change in the login system. Can be done, but a bit of work and testing needed...



2 - cookies?
I am not exactly sure how cookies work but i imagine when viewing a thread, you can leave the thread number written to a cookie. When you re-view a thread, just query the cookie to see if it was viewed recently.

To reset, just erase everything in the cookie.

Hmmm. No. First this is browser dependent. You move to another browser and you lose track of it. Second do you know how many topics people read? Cookies would get gigantic - and every time a browser request an element (html, image, css, script) it sends the cookies to the server. With time YOUR connection to the site would slow down to a crawl, uploading as much as is being downloaded. Then there's obviously the problem of validating this. DON'T EVER TRUST THE CLIENT.

No, cookies is not the answer.

How does that work/Where can we see the list?
Just checked my profile page, just shows "+1's recieved.... 1000"

Edit: Nevermind, found it.
Is it possible to show this on the profile page where it shows posts that got a +1 with some sort of icon.

Yeah, would it be possible to show an entire list of your own posts on a page (i.e profile page) that got +1'd please?

I still don't understand why you can't just turn off the automatic process which resets red flags after a certain amount of time and just make reset red flags a mandatory manual process to all?  Or even have that as a profile option so I can click a button so my read flags are not reset unless I do it manually?  Or am I talking rubbish?
