I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Slashdot posts have excess whitespace

    Not sure if this is unique to Slashdot, but its where I see it. When browsing a folder of feeds, Slashdot's posts have inches of white space after the article is completed.

      • Handle longer tweets

        Twitter's new longer tweets don't show up completely in BazQux. The text either cuts off with "..." or the posted link goes to the tweet on twitter.com rather than the actual link URL.

        • Add tags to twitter feeds for retweats, replies, and hashtags.

          I would like the ability to filter twitter feeds more effectively using tags. For instance, if I subscribe to some company's twitter account, I might not want to see retweets or replies in my feed, so if BQ could automatically add tags such as "twitterrt" and "twitterreply" to relevant feed items, they could be easily filtered out.

          I don't care about hashtags on twitter, but it seems like a natural extension of my suggestion to have BQ add hashtags in a tweet as actual tags.

          • Filter by image type

            Hi!
            Using filters we can use img:true to filter only feeds with images.
            Now, my question is, any chance to filter by image type?

            Example: gif:true

            In my particular case, I want view only GIFs in Tumblr feeds.
            Thanks.

            • possibility of multi-search for smartstream, or better regex

              http://siwego.net/grf/regex.jpg

              is there a way, to search for e.g. "cd project" and "cdproject" in one search? since wildcards works at edges of word well, "cd?project" nor "cd*project" seems not working to output both results..

                      Done. But there are many problems:

                      • Private groups are not available.
                      • Content of most shared posts is not reported by Facebook API (so many wall posts are just empty).
                      • Subscribing to group with name (/groups/GroupName instead of /groups/1234) is currently impossible (you need to look into page source for fb://group/1234 and replace GroupName with numeric ID).
                    • Mark as read on jump

                      Maybe it's just me, but wouldn't it be more efficient and comfortable if skipped over articles would be marked as read automatically? Especially regarding the expanded view and assuming mark as read on scroll is enabled.

                      Best example is a Twitter timeline. Most of the time you have small message boxes so you end up skipping through them by clicking on links or opening tweets in new tabs, and everytime you do it, it leaves tweets that you actually have read but haven't marked as such (by manually scrolling through them) as unread, which often leads to confusion or simply…

                      • Twitter quotes

                        Me and Twitter again...

                        Since it directly regarding Twitter, I thought it might be workable. Twitter links or quotes are shown as links on BazQux and not as embed preview as you can see it on Twitter. Just wanted to let you know, but of course it would be nice if that worked on BazQux as well.

                        Example: https://twitter.com/makewayfornady/status/665016843338256384

                          When I reorder the subscriptions alphabetically, I have to take all of my smartstream filters and move them back to the top. It would be nice if they were locked to the top. Thanks!

                            • Twitter images

                              A while back Twitter implemented the feature to upload up to 4 images at once in a Tweet. On Twitter you can also see a grid preview of the uploaded images. Would it be possible to implement such a preview on BazQux as well? Right now you always see only one image showing, so you never know whether there's more unless you open the Tweet in a new tab.

                                  Have you thought about integrating the Twitter plugin to show embed Tweets in articles properly?

                                  Some Feeds provide a full article view, so I can comfortably read them on bazqux. But whenever Tweets are embed I have to navigate to the website to see the full content of it, which kinda kills the workflow.

                                      Articles are just updated and do not marked as unread.

                                      Most article updates are typos or changed views/likes/comments count, or even some tracking URL change (completely invisible). For each two new posts there is an updated one.

                                      To not overwhelm users with unnecessary information updates are not displayed.

                                      If there is some post where you expect interesting updates you could try to star it and check manually.

                                      • Scroll wheel should not change article focus

                                        Currently, operating the scroll wheel moves the article focus. The scroll wheel should move the list view without changing the "cursor" position.

                                          I think that current behavior solves 90% of the problem and keeps marking items read on scroll 90% working. So I marking this request as completed.

                                          I’ve changed list view so cursor doesn’t go up while scrolling and go down only when expanded item is almost completely scrolled out of screen.

                                          So marking items read on scroll still works and cursor doesn’t jump to top item while scrolling.

                                          Other view modes are unaffected (and in mixed view cursor “locks” on list view items as described above).

                                          Please check. Does this new behavior work for you?

                                          Lets say you go away for a while. Maybe you go on vacation, loose interest in news, or just in general get busy in life. You come back after a week or 5 and see you have thousands of articles to sort. It's a shock to the system and creates undue anxiety.

                                          A nice feature would be to simply allow articles to

                                          * become marked as read
                                          * be move someplace else or flagged
                                          * deleted altogether as if they never existed

                                          I believe this would be a very nice feature and one that I would enjoy.

                                            There is already such functionality here.
                                            “Mark all as read” button has drop down menu (click on the triangle on the right side of the button). You can mark items older than a day/week/two weeks/month/year as read.
