Open thread - Say Hi




If you come visiting here at GBBL say hi in a comment. Or talk about some topic. I'm curious as to what people have to say. Invite other people to come by, follow, and link.

Gun control is the suppression of human rights and the suppression of human rights is a pathway to more violence.

Hi all!

Peter said...

I come by several times a day, to check updated links. It's very useful to have them all in one spot like this.

My only complaint: your feeds don't update regularly. For example, I put up my latest blog post at 7.32 a.m. this morning. It's now 9.40 a.m., and it's still not reflected in your listings - they're showing a post from last night. I know that's not your fault, but I'd still like to know why sometimes the links 'lag' like that, and at other times they're updated within minutes. Strange . . .

North said...

Hi Peter! Yes, I wish I could fix that, too.

Originally I had ONE sorted list - a single blog roll - and the newest posts of all of the blogs would float to the top.

When I got to about 200-300 blogs it started acting very wonky. Wouldn't show updated posts. So I had to split the lists. I'm well over 500 now.

Lately I've discovered links just disappearing from the list for no reason.

Hello there!

North, one suggestion to fix the expansion of blog names. How about an arbitrary limit on blog activity? If your blog hasn't been updated in (say) 2 or 3 months, it gets taken off the main list and put into an 'Inactive Blog List', for want of a better term. That would cull a lot of blogs from the active lists, while keeping their names available for those who want to search through them.

Just a thought.

Hey North. Long time!

I click over here still. Though I don't get as many clicks back to me as I used to.

North said...

Hi all! *waves*

Peter: a reasonable suggestion, but would require constant updating to be fair.

Deadmandance: I wish I could improve that for you. I think clicks are down across the board. I think. I have little data to support that.
