TRACHBANG!
Posted November 15, 2005 at 04:14:12 PM by Bean
I started a site called trachbang.com. It's pretty basic right now, but I'm hoping to create our own little fark.com-esque link repository eventaully, with regularly updating headlines submitted by YOU and discussed by all. You have to sign up for an account (takes about 4 seconds) in order to comment on links or submit new ones, but anyone can read the headlines and comments that have been posted.

As for the trach bang scale part of it... when you comment on a link, you get to rate it, and the ratings are displayed on the front page. Like I said, it's all pretty basic right now, but I'm hoping to make it mo betta in the future, pending intrest.

Obvious outstanding issues:
  • Comment formatting - need to allow certian tags in comments and disallow others. Some nice buttons to help out would be nice too (bold / italic / blockquote / link / img)
  • Need to strip HTML tags and unrecognized characters from the headline submissions
  • Need to add the links and RSS sidebars
  • Cookies - would be nice to not have to log in every time
  • Not sure if it looks right in all browsers... feedbakc plz.
Anyway... try it out and let me knwo what you think.

Bean (November 17, 2005 at 11:11:42 AM):
Could be... no activity on teh wiki for a while tho, and I'll probably kill it soon anyway.
Bean (November 17, 2005 at 02:10:53 PM):
Added a "recent blogs" block to trachbang.com. Makes it mo betta useful.

Rikey the recent blogs thing. I give it a BANG! Does it just use RSS feeds?
Bean (November 17, 2005 at 06:23:27 PM):
Big tim... it will read rss, rss2, and atom feeds from my list of sources, combine them, sort by date and show the top 10.

Thinking about syndicating the aggregate top 10 for use on the respective blogs... ehh? ehh?
jctmh (November 17, 2005 at 06:45:49 PM):
for the recent blogs feeds, does that work for pw?
Bean (November 18, 2005 at 08:17:12 AM):
Not yet... I'm not sure if it ever will. hence: no bbq, no m1bq
