Bump Lists to Become Keywords

Posted on 07/24/2004 6:41:49 PM PDT by John Robinson

Edited on 07/25/2004 6:22:30 AM PDT by John Robinson. [history]

I'm going to convert bump lists to keywords and discontinue that form of addressing. This will only affect you if you know what a bump list is. Thank you.

Update #1 within the hour pings to bump lists will fail to register. Tick tock...

Update #2 to add an article to the bump lists--which are now keywords--use the "Click to add keyword" link that lists below the text of each article. Enter the name of the bump list without spaces.

A list of those names can be found on the old bump list register.

Update #2.5 Oh, and, for better or worse, keywords are now global across all forums. For example, yesterday the moose keyword would have a different list of articles depending on which forum you were in--utter chaos. Today, moose lists all articles across all forums.


TOPICS: Free Republic
KEYWORDS: bang; banglist; bitchandmoan; bullwinkle; ccrm; changeisbad; changeisgood; chiefmoose; clearasmud; dixie; dontconfuseme; dontconfusemeeither; ggg; hophophop; huh; idontgetit; idontgetiteither; ifeelleftout; ifeelleftouttoo; iwantmybumplist; iwantmybumplisttoo; keywordkonfused; keywordswerefun; mediabias; moose; mooseontheloose; mooses; neohio; neverheardofit; neverheardofiteither; ohmywereallgonnadie; ohnowigetitnot; puff; students; testkeywordbump; themoosebitmysister; thisisconfusing; wearedoomed; whattheheck; wodlist; yourformerbumptohere

Omelette, broken eggs, yadda yadda yadda.

Progress, can't you smell it?

Will there be a cross reference for the conversion, or just a straight mapping of list name to keyword?

In the past, I have asked folks who know and like my nearly ten years of columns to ping the next one out, if they so chose. Does this change kill that idea? (I do not have, and never have had, a bump list of my own.)

Cordially,

John / Billybob

I'm not sure what BUMP means....exactly. I see it posted all the time but it never "bumps" anywhere. The top or anywhere else.

An opus for the bump lists.

May they rest in peace.

This will be the last list ever bumped. I bid you adieu.

Perhaps am thickheaded John,

Are you saying the prayer ping list, UFO ping list and all other ping list will no longer function if we paste them into the To: window?

What do you prefer we do, instead?

Thanks for that. How will we add a post to the ahh... "keyword list"? Or maybe a better question would be how will the new 'feature' work as opposed to the old?

If this saves the life of just one bump, it will all be worth it.

You don't make a comment to ping the list. Instead, at the bottom of the article text, where the topics and keywords are listed, you click "Click to Add Keyword" and type in the name of the bump-list.

Eventually we'll have user created topics, that will be more like little forums, with their own home page, list of members, etc., and these bump lists turned keywords can then become topics.

Hopefully not too difficult. But now that you mention it, I should strive to maintain the old interface, using the "To" field as an alternative method. We'll aim for that level of compatibility and hope for the best.

Ahhhhh.

Thanks tons. I think I'm getting it. Thickheaded or not!

Much appreciated.

Eventually, one might wish for a page or three explaining PING lists VS BUMP/KEYWORD lists/FORUM lists somewhere on the home page or site map page or some such.

Ping lists are personally maintained lists of names of folk interested in specific topics.

And BUMP/KEYWORDS are transmorgafying . . . into forums/fora?

I think!

Bless you in your labors of love.

Thanks tons for all you do for us and FR!

Hey JR...

While yer at it (and because I know yer not busy enough already...) Would it be possible to allow the >poster< of an article edit the header? I.e. Misspellings in the headline (well that might be unwise), but especially the url links, keywords, author, date and other article info.

I just posted an article from the Paki Daily Times and left the "a" out of "Daily". Can't tell you how many times my stupid self hits the "post" button, only to realize too late that something is wrong in the header.

Not a biggie, but just something for the wish list.

BTW, it might be a moot issue.

I want bump/ping lists that allow people to subscribe. When the name of the list is used in the To: field, everybody subscribed is pinged via their My Comments.

If you get the impression this stuff is in flux, you are correct. I have a general idea where I want to take this stuff, lots of ideas, and enough code now to make things happen.
