Re: Notification emails: remove poster's name from subject line??

To be more specific - For the email subject line, what we want is the topic's subject line, perhaps with a prefix, e.g. "[S4PMForum] Notification emails: remove poster's name from subject line??"

Hi Dave- Good idea. We'll add support for supporting this in a future release. The likely "fix" will be to make the subjects uniform for both new post notifications and comments/replies. I don't have an ETA for that at this time, but it has been added to our development queue.

( I am from the same group as Dave above ) I agree with Dave that this is a big aggravation for some of our members, but as with so many system tweaks curing one problem may spawn another. Let me explain. In this instance, without an indication of who wrote the new post, it forces the user to click in to each new note to see who has been posting. Thus the net effect of flattening your headers would be a lot more clicking for some because the header has been neutralized as a cue. To compare...

I had the impression that Gmail's conversation mode is 100.0% driven by the subject line, not by metadata. But I just did a test - wrote myself a msg with the identical subject line as an existing thread, and it did NOT go into that "conversation." Here, for anyone who's not deeply familiar with it, is a decent description of the pros & cons of conversation view. http://www.techrepublic.com/bl...on-view-in-gmail/128 And I'll paste in a screen grab, taken just now, of how it helps keep on...

And, btw, since Gmail conversation mode is apparently NOT driven solely by subject line as I thought, it does raise a fascinating question: how DOES it decide? I haven't found the spec for that. My next guess is that it's some combination of subject line and recipient list. But to test that, I just sent someone a test msg with the identical subject line of a previous msg between us, and it didn't collapse. Hm. This is potentially juicy because maybe we can find a way to do both, e.g. (as...

Thanks, guys.. and feel free to keep the conversation on this topic going here. We have not implemented any changes yet so everything is still fluid on what we can/should do in this regard. Personally, I see a lot of value in displaying the name of the commenter in the subject, but as you said it is not really clear how any of the various email clients group emails into conversations. It's not just Gmail to consider either and I suspect that there is no standard, though of course we can...

Catching up on this one too - the more I think about this, the more I'm starting to think this would need to be a *user* parameter, not a forum parameter. Because different people do use email differently. So, here's hoping the code was written cleverly enough to make that viable without requiring re-engineering! I do know that for both the .org I'm serving, and for my own biz forum, the current functionality is a MAJOR concern for some users.

5 ideas for keeping the online conversation civil

Some online communities thrive on a snarky, provocative tone, and their members love a good foodfight.  But if your community members prefer a more mellow, live-and-let-live environment, it can be up to the community manager to ensure that it...

I myself, and an organization I'm with, have been testing Hoop.la for a while, and LOVE it.  But there's one BIG issue, a genuine show-stopper for many of our current members, and I can't find a setting for it. Can it be changed via a script edit...

The Difference Between a Feed and a Conversation

Rosemary O'Neill ·
Social networks can be depressing . Scrolling through a "feed" is a self-reinforcing loop, and you're being "fed" the pieces of content with which the algorithm has determined you will engage. You spend your time scrolling, occasionally flicking a reaction or typing a quick comment, feeling inferior because it's not your birthday, you didn't eat at Ruth's Chris last night, and your 2.5 beautiful children haven't won the gymnastics competition. Sometimes there will be a random, intrusive...

Such a nice little well-written jab at the drug Facebook and Twitter are injecting into their users. The many Hoop.la, UBB, and Eve communities, as well as Narrative are examples of how user to user interaction through the web should be done.
