- mouseover to see who 'Like'd your comments - control over volume of email (it's quite high)

 - mouseover timestamps on the "Ongoing Commentary" chat window 

- maybe with timestamp separators when the is a gap between messages

Create a "How Shrtct works" hash?

I was thinking of something along the lines of a companion to this hash, where folks could post questions about existing functionality rather than requests for new functionality, and which could also be home to "Getting started with Shrtct" information (maybe a post with that name), as well as a home to a Shrct FAQ list.

2 Edit Post

DR
Right, these are the hashes "What does Shrtct do?", "Support Hash", and "What can you use Shrtct for?" (in the order you listed them in, José.) I guess what was I motivated by in my original post was the idea of centralizing this kind of information, but then a single hash may not be flexible enough to easily encompass these three intersecting topics and more. Maybe a dedicated "How Shrtct works" space instead that could be home to these kinds of hashes and this "UI/UX Requests" hash, too, would be better?2015-11-12 16:23:45 NEW 0

Speking of, would be great to substitute shrtct links (everything *.shrtct.com) to their appropiate tittles, so the person who's seeing at a glance would know what is it about without having to go in each link.

I like how I can see the user followers into the user profile page. So it would be helpful for user to see his likes/upvotes in the same way:

Example:

3 likes from [Neal icon], [Harry icon] and [Ivan icon] of "My great comment"

1 like from [Neal icon] of "My next great comment"


Sorted by likes/upvotes. What do you think?

1546388_10153606121762796_6681555746358268262_n As for me, from one point of view 'Site' is more common therm, then "Space". But from another, Site is like subdomain, so from this position Space == Site. Also when user has his own site or even sites it sounds more understandable and cooler then Space. For marketing it is easy to share idea about 'your own site...' then space. Site +1.2015-11-03 16:08:55 NEW 1
Me Are they English speakers? "Site" for me means website. Are you sure they don't mean their own white label version of Shrtct? If not, I'm easy. I think Space is much better, but if people want Site so be it :)2015-11-03 17:57:15 NEW 0
1001447_10151659735510240_1559269848_n They are native English speakers. They might have experience with things like Wordpress, where you get your own site, at subdomain.wordpress.com, or blogger, the same. Space and site are really synonymous.2015-11-03 17:59:53 NEW 0
DR
What about using "Site" in outward-facing material (like marketing material) and keeping "Space" inward-facing -- I could imagine wanting to think and talk about a collection of Spaces as being part of an umbrella Site, even though they may all only be subdomains of shrtct.com. (I like how the word "Space" is used where it appears, and am not sure it would it have the same feel as "Site", and once people get used to "Space", I'd guess they'd prefer it, too.)2015-11-03 22:43:10 NEW 1
JF
Site is a good default. Although, avoiding other commonly used terms in other apps (hash, sites, rooms, channels, etc.) would be great to establish some personality during the growth of the service. Something that creates some sort of hierarchy and theme like: Bits and bups: - Hub (for sites / spaces) - byte ( for hashes / ideas) - bit (for ongoing commentary) For the foodies: - Lounge (for sites / spaces) - Entreé ( for hashes / ideas) - Desert (for ongoing commentary) Math related: - Space (for sites / spaces) - Point ( for hashes / ideas) - tangent (for ongoing commentary) Having a naming convention (it will always evolve) would help differentiate establish the brand and from them the users will run with it, creating all sorts of awesome slang.2015-11-04 01:33:44 NEW 1
Me Hash seems to be an issue at the moment, and may be affecting our Hash creation/ Space creation rate (as it's not clear what it is). What do you think about changing Hash to Chat? i.e. Create a new Chat.2015-11-08 19:27:38 NEW 0
1001447_10151659735510240_1559269848_n "Ongoing commentary," should be, "chat." I personally like "hashing it out," but am open to "topic." Creating a new hash needs to be embedded on the spaces pages, so you can always start a new hash without clicking to another page.2015-11-08 21:17:36 NEW 1

Move the Ongoing Commentary to the left side of the window. 


On the right side, when there are a lot of hashes and commentary at the same time you loose track on where to scroll making the interface awkward to navigate and not pleasant at all. 


You can see it in this hash or in the attached screenshot for posterity :)

JH

Clicking away from the left-hand Menu (i.e. anywhere on the page that is not the expanded menu section that appears) should also close it, not just cliking the X. Having to move the mouse up to the X is pretty annoying.


Severity: Minor. Not a deal-breaker, just a little frustrating (and unexpected/not typical: other apps let you close menus of this nature by clicking elsewhere), and only when you've opened the Menu, which isn't all that often. 


Example: not the greatest example (since it gives a centralised pop-up not a left-bound menu) but click on the Feedback button on the left of this site: http://workinstartups.com/ and then click anywhere outside of the pop-up: the pop-up closes. This is the intended behaviour I'm trying to describe :)

Alternative separator for counts?

I've gotten used to it, but new users may not realize at first (like I didn't!) that the "|" between the upvote arrow in posts and "Like" in comments was a separator and not a letter or a number.   (For example, "| 0" looks like 10 since the symbol "|" is exactly digit height.)  Maybe ":" or no separator at all?

1 Edit Post

Me I've just removed this for upvotes and it's clearer (will do likes now). Nice suggestion :)2015-11-07 17:35:33 NEW 2

Turn comments into answers. i.e. the following was a comment in response to something else - but in this thread it should serve as a standalone suggestion.

Do you mean something like a button that allows the author or moderators to convert a previous comment into a standalone post? Sounds like a useful tool, since at the time of writing, the author may view a comment as a response to a post, and it make take time or someone else to realize the comment may also deserve a place higher up in the hierarchy. In this case, would it also make sense to indicate its original context?2015-11-08 23:57:29 NEW 0
Me Yes exactly that, and yes I agree about indicating the original context. Suggestion: We do this with a text alongside the date e.g. answered originally as a comment Nov 08 at 23:12 - (with "comment" being a link to that original thread).2015-11-09 18:04:11 NEW 0

"Highlight & Add to Summary," when selecting text

There are three buttons that a user can choose when they select text in a hash. Add a fourth to add a piece of text to summary view. A summary view would allow you to easily read key text, and jump directly to a post inside of a hash.

Going forward, tags within summary text could also be collated across hashes.

1) Import and export features. Unless a company/organization discovers and decides to use your service on day 1, they're looking at a huge amount of work to get everything integrated. And if your service goes down (temporarily or permanently), they're facing catastrophic data loss. Where's my JSON at?

2)  Users need more information about who is following a specific space. For instance, I have no way of knowing if any of the site staff will ever see this comment. The following should display who is following it on hover. I'm not sure how your backend is setup, but it shouldn't be hard to return that array.

3) Are you just using open sockets for chat for everyone by default and doing pinging? That's gonna cause slowdown as you scale up, especially in a company where everyone is expected to be idling in the channel all day.

4) I use (and frequently despise) angular and I understand that using an ng-view might not be an easy fit for what you're doing, but it's also completely crazy that changing the sort from date to votes requires a (really slow) server request AND a full page refresh, AND it wipes out the text field at the bottom. Here, take a look at what happens when it's pressed:

                                Why the hell is this purely display logic not happening client-side?


My advice to you would be do not, under any circumstances, hire anyone else who isn't also a coder. Like, hire a Project Manager by all means, but if they don't understand why the picture above is a huge problem, what are they even managing? I see a lot of potential here and I like the interface, but if you're contracting out your coding or just trying to muddle through it yourselves, you're gonna have a bad time.

I can throw together a rudimentary export function in a few days just using an external scraper as a freebie, if you'd like. Shoot me an email or reply here and let's build some stuff!

Automatic login from link in email from Shrtct?

Make top bar float? 

(Re-post of comment embedded in Jonathan's post about "back to top" button.)

The top bar contains a lot of useful information and navigation tools, like the "hamburger", the name of the current space, the search box, whether someone is currently typing (at least in the Ongoing Commentary, I think), and notification alerts.   Would it be difficult to have this float permanently at the top?

Would there be a way to add a drag and drop feature from the comment bubbles to hashes, and vice versa, enabling them to be linked / tracked from one to the other? Kind of like uploading a document by dragging and dropping, instead of using the file select method, only this would either highlight whats connected using color or use lines from the hash to connected comments. This way you could connect multiple comments to multiple hashes and you could easily see what comments and hashes are linked.2015-11-04 01:26:27 NEW 0
Me These are interesting thoughts. The idea was that comments would be used for contribution specific commentary (e.g. "I like this option"), and the right chat column would be for general comments (e.g. "Let's try and focus our answers a bit more on.....") and real time conversation. That said, if that's not how people are using it, it may well be worth investigating some way of tying the commentary to specific contributions, though I think I would like to wait a little while to get some more usage data (and also give us time to build our notifications feature).2015-11-07 17:43:57 NEW 0

For multiple comment email updates on a sub-hash. 

When new comments are posted under a sub-hash, and a notification email is sent, include the title of the sub-hash before the comment as well as the full list of comments so the receiver can quickly understand which sub-hash is being commented on.

By the way, since Neal created the digital nomad space, I was thinking that the Colony shrtct I created should be added in there and would be of interest but even though I'm a member there's no way to do that. if I was wearing the PM shoes already, I would be driving and pushing for resources to ape and steal Colony's self organizing thinking as well as the "ask to answer" feature from Quora :) Shrtct as a kind of async self organizing answer to Slack which you *have* to be invited to and you *have* to follow the structure set up by the slack group mods has the potential to outwork Slack entirely. That would be my vision for Shrtct.

1546388_10153606121762796_6681555746358268262_n Hi Neal, ok about Hamburger menu. For chat menu - right now we use chat toggle for mobile only. So leave as is but show chat toggle always(I mean do not show/hide chat for desktop). Correct?2015-10-20 09:18:43 NEW 0
1546388_10153606121762796_6681555746358268262_n It is done.2015-10-20 12:09:40 NEW 1
1001447_10151659735510240_1559269848_n Actually, I would love to be able to toggle chat on desktop, as well. What do you guys think?2015-10-20 13:57:56 NEW 0

1546388_10153606121762796_6681555746358268262_n As for me - no problem. Just need new design for the hash page. On mobile we just show the chat instead of hash, but for desktop should it moved left(not like) or showed the same as FB chat into little draggle div?2015-10-20 15:37:21 NEW 1

If user has already seen chat message, post, or comment, do not send them an email notification.

No need to send an email to myself that says I've upvoted my own answer :)

When editing a hash, the title of the popover box is "Create a new hash". I would expect "Edit hash" or similar.

Also, the bottom-left button is "Next". I would expect "Save edit" or similar.

2 Edit Post

Me That's a good point. We should also separate invitations from the hash-edit modal, so people don't think existing invitations will be sent out again when they click save.2015-10-22 13:08:51 NEW 1
Me Robert, we've planned this and it's in our task list. Will archive this for now (you can access this post for reference via the "Show archived posts" link at the bottom of this hash).2015-10-27 16:35:04 NEW 1

Make the "Your Answer" div float in the bottom of the webpage (like the hamburguer button in the top left). 


This encourages taking action. 


If something in a hash sparks something, a ready to post (maybe slimmer version of the) "Your Answer" form is more appealing than scrolling down to the end of the conversation (specially long ones) loosing valuable context and increasing the barrier to entry for being part of the discussion.

1001447_10151659735510240_1559269848_n The reason I disagree with this, is that we want contextually relevant responses to be made as comments to existing posts, so that the line of thinking is kept together. I also want people to reconsider posting to long hashes that might already cover their own thoughts.2015-11-05 14:45:03 NEW 3

Both good points Neal, however, from what I can gather looking around there are two distinctive "modes" of using shrtct: adding and reviewing. Adding is for example when you create a hash. You're speed-balling ideas, one after the other doing a mind dump about the subject in question (having the floating form would help speeding up the process). Then refining the minor details editing. Reviewing is when you get an email notification or when you browse a discussion, this time you're taking your time. Reading hash by hash spreading likes as needed and adding comments contextually to answer a specific point made in a hash. For this "mode" I do agree the floating form would get in the way just for the reviewing part. Although I wouldn't set aside the importance of a good summary hash gathering all the important ideas read through the conversation (for that the floating form would be relevant again). Bottom line is I lay on the side of encouraging participation, maybe there's some duplication but that is that likes are for: promoting or demoting content based on its relevance.2015-11-06 04:24:14 NEW 0

Oh, also the "peeking" mode. Where you browse through different conversations looking if anything there sparks any interest. There too having a ready to post form would reduce the barrier to entry to participating in them (which increases engagement with the platform)2015-11-06 13:38:51 NEW 0

You can't see the write post button when you have a notification.

Filter hashes in conversations


By: 

  • New (yes or no)
  • Highlighted (yes or no)
  • Liked (hashes / hashes that have comments I've liked)
  • Addressed to me (my hashes / hashes I've commented on)

0 Edit Post

Me Just to clarify, this whole thing is a HASH. The individual responses are answers. This is a comment. Chat is on the right. (Happy for feedback on these names). New - yes! Highlighted - yes! Liked - need to think how we could do this/ the benefits for now. Authored by me - need to see how long typical answer lists get. If they're long, this could be useful!2015-11-11 14:34:27 NEW 0

I keep flicking between similar hashes, and it's a bit annoying to search for them.

Below the NAV bar, I'd like to see a "recent hashes" bar, so I can easily access hashes I've looked at recently.

Tags

It would be great to be able to assign tags to a hash to help classify them into more easily searchable units.

Automatic Shrtct account sign-in / log-in when navigating from email link instead of navigating directly to page and then having to sign-in / log-in to account,

Ivan already implemented a version of this, where if you click on an email link, you're taken directly to the post without having to sign in, at least for viewing the post. I'm not sure if it logs you in, too.2015-11-18 18:31:33 NEW 0
JS
If your already logged in and your browser stores your password it does auto log you in, but I'm referring to auto login based on the email link sent to your email associated with your account, or at least the ability to comment on the post you were emailed about. (this would go along with the post about replying to comments from email. I use chrome incognito for my email at one of my consulting gigs since I'm logged into their work gmail account to access analytics, adwords, drive, etc., in normal chrome window. The email link from shrtct takes me to the commented posted, but I have to go through 2 more steps to login in order to post a comment. I also just tried logging into my Linkedin account first, since that's what my shrtct account is connected to thinking it would auto log me in, but it still redirected me to sign in through an account. Since I was already logged into Linkedin in another tab it didn't require me to enter linkedin credentials, but still required me to select which account I was logging into. (Side note, it redirected me to hash top instead of to where I was trying to comment.) I know its not that much hassle, but with the speed of internet everything has to be intuitively streamlined so I can quickly comment and get back to the other stuff I'm working on. If it doesn't work like a user should chances are they are going to get confused / frustrated and stop using it.2015-11-18 19:08:58 NEW 0

I just tested this: Clicking on the email link takes me directly to the post, which I can view without having to log in. (I wasn't logged in when I did this.) However, it doesn't log me in automatically, so I can't yet respond to the post without the further step of logging in.2015-11-18 19:57:53 NEW 0

Open in a new tab when you click a link inside an answer.

I've lost all my answer when I did it.. LOL!
Maybe a "answer cache" should be really cool if you redirect by missclick and turn back the browser expecting your answer to be there or actually when you get out and come back to the same hash by any reason.
