Site improvements

GAGR powers on

GAGR powers on

We’ve added a few features to the site, which regulars may or may not (depending on beer count) have noticed:

  • Comment voting: You’ll see a little thumbs up at the bottom of comments. If you think it’s a good comment (e.g. funny or smart) click on it. It will count up the thumbs up for that comment, which you can see. There’s no total scoreboard anywhere so it’s not a competition or anything, just lets people know you agree or like what they’ve said.
  • ‘Nested’ or ‘Threaded’ commenting: If you want to reply directly to someone’s comment, just click on the QUOTE box below their comment. Your comment will then be placed indented below theirs. Others can then comment on your comment on the other comment etc etc. Thanks to Chris Harrison the web designer for help on this.
  • Comment email subscription: tick box at bottom of comment and you’ll get an email when there’s a follow up
  • CommentLuv: If you’ve got your own blog and you put the site address in when you add a comment, a link from your last post will automagically appear below your comment. Cool huh? You can thank me later.
  • Comment formatting: Some easy buttons to use above the comment box for lazy fuckers and technospazzes
  • Category clean up: In the side bar you can now look up a particular team you’re interested in and see all posts under that category on GAGR. Should be particularly useful for when S14 kicks off again.

Thanks as usual also needs to go to Moses who bailed me out of the shit when I crashed the site last night.

Let me know what you guys think, or if you notice anything not working.
