Display a count of the number of new comments since you last viewed an article / were last active on the site (separate counts), in the feed.

To make it easier to keep an eye on the conversations that you're interested in but might not have got involved in, yet.

Discourse does this well.

Link to this post in the "this is a new service- help us improve it" bar.

Saves users making the same suggestions, users can upvote good ideas & this site is more accessible than sending an email.

I'll stop now 🀐

Alex. Great suggestions. πŸ‘ŒπŸ½πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

We have this now πŸŽ‰

(there's an order by dropdown in the top right hand corner of the comments list with options of 'upvotes' or 'date')

The service is already top but I would suggest the following in spirit of Kaizen:

1 - Improve Mobile experience It doesn't very well for me on Mobile (maybe because of my setup: iOS - Safari - private browsing)

2 - RSS feeds (headline only is fine) so I can see all my feeds in one place (Feedly) then I would happily jump to article and up vote then

3- Rest API

Great suggestions Seb. Many thanks. Watch this space.

Hi @Seb Benmbarek - you can get an RSS feed here

Thanks @martinspain , that's exactly what I needed

First thing is to dock Barbs 50 karma points - just to annoy her ;~)

I know this on the roadmap but selected stories that were used on the podcast. Maybe new since last visit, although you can sort of do that on the by day filter. Not sure if you want to have separate sections for "crypto / blockchain" and Insurance?

First to 500?

I'm pretty sure this reply gets you 1 of 6 points you'd need to win. Most stories read on the next 2 news casts?

+ 1 this. Product Hunt have created a nice UI for this in their latest redesign (the links from around the web feature).

Add a karma leaderboard, for Fegan ;)

Discourse is good at this too.

8 months ago

It could be named the Feganboard

I can see one of these. One coming soon public.

Aaaw bugger. Not that I understand cricket but can I declare and go for tea?

Move the comments count to the left (maybe just after the title), in the feed view.

To make it easier to see which posts have comments, at a glance.

7 months ago

Writing this without looking at the other comments, sorry if repetitive but thought it would be useful to see how many people are asking for the same thing.

Social site:

  • Sorting Options
  • Comment saving and sharing
  • Post tags
  • Link Previews
  • Tagging platform users

News/Podcast:

  • Summaries (which I think are in the works)
  • RSS Feed (not sure if you have one already?)

Thanks for the suggestions! It'd be really useful to hear more about the comment saving functionality - did you mean that you'd like to be able to save posts / comments to come back to later or something else?

8 months ago

View profile summary on hover / 1st click of username.

I'm not sure users realise how influential / well known / respected some of the other members here are because it's too hard (if you're as lazy as me at least) to check so it would be good to make that more visible. That should help make the discussion more compelling, especially for new users. And it just makes it easier to get to know everyone else.

8 months ago

Maybe something tagged to the user name, or deep press/hold to accommodate mobile

7 months ago

Nothing to do with "lazy" anymore - we're busy, use our phones for everything, rely on latest news & data, so apps need to be slick and work, everytime. When they don't, we move on, or find another source! #EfficiencyRocks

Display the most voted on comments at the top of the comments list, rather than sorting based on when they were created.

This is less of an issue now, while there’s relatively few comments per article. But when I click into the comments, I want to see the best comments first.

7 months ago

In line comments. An app.

7 months ago

Can you describe what you mean by 'inline comments'?

7 months ago

@martinspain I'd appreciate if the site started mining for LTC and sent any rewards to the address LiJaMmjvnWwN6ToVivbk1juuZKH3PPHeAN thanks awfully.

@martinspain @AlexS Can we have a scroll option on the comments? This is primarily for editing when on the mobile, which is pretty impossible unless the comment was a one liner.

Thank you please.

Thanks for the suggestion, that one’s been bugging me for a while tbh & now I get to bump it up the priority list πŸ™‚

In the meantime, if a reply gets too long to work with, I usually copy it into another writing app, edit it & then copy it back in. But obviously that’s not ideal!

7 months ago

Could the first reply to a post be indented? At the moment (on Chrome, desktop) they don't appear to be, which makes the conversation harder to follow.

5 months ago

An app please! With push notifications that you can enable to get articles with certain keywords pushed directly to your phone. That’d be heaven!! I haven’t been able to find any digital banking news sources with push notification

Enable users to upvote certain comments twice - similar to Reddit Gold feature. Requested by @v18n.

How do I add an additional link to an existing thread please ? Some are not just news items but ongoing conversations and it seems a shame start a new thread on same topic because I couldn't add an additional link to the conversation.

4 months ago

Thanks for asking, could you please post the link as a comment - that will enable users to respond in the thread & upvote your comment so that you earn karma for sharing the link πŸ™‚

2 months ago

would be great to have a chrome extension that you could use to share directly and a tag feature to segment from fi, bi and ii

I HATE the indented replies in threads. PLEASE stop doing it

From @barbmaclean (originally posted here)

If you’re subscribed to notifications for both comments on your posts and mentions, if someone mentions you in a comment on your post, you receive 2 notification emails. It would be nice if it was just one.

This is what happens when you search for a keyword and don't necessarily read the post you're commenting on 🀦

Haha that's what I'm here for πŸ˜„

I also should just read the site header to know you've linked to this post directly for feedback.

Give a character count for the post body to know usage vs 3000 max.

7 months ago

I mean on the main news list be able to expand/collapse the replies and comments rather than having to explicitly drill down into each one

Sorry that's a reply to @martinspain

@AlexS is there a trello backlog for these improvements? Just wondering, is polls on it?

6 months ago

There isn't at the moment. I could create a Trello board for this but since we don't have a dedicated developer working on the site, we can't estimate how soon functionality will be added. So the board would be pretty boring - just a requests & a completed list, with upvotes which is pretty similar to what we have here.

Am I overlooking anything there?

5 months ago

An app. With ability to share articles directly from browsers and other apps through the share option in IOS and Android. This is a great commute product (in combination with the podcast), needs to be on mobile....!

5 months ago

Search functionality please!

@AlexS Super high priority this one - as FIN email notifications take up half my gmail inbox - how about you set a favicon for the emails rather than just them being an "F"? If British airways and amex can do it, then so can you. Make it so (add appropriate meme)

5 months ago

I can certainly, maybe do that for you! I don't see any favicons in my Gmail inbox though πŸ€” are you using Inbox by Google by any chance?

5 months ago

It's actually just in the mobile app.
