Zing Touch: ILX now ON IPHONE (and ipod tooches too)

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed
Not all messages are displayed: show all messages (1626 of them)

i hate to complain because i love zing and appreciate that it's there, so much, but i don't think i like the previews, or at least they're not useful for me. i guess i just don't understand the point of them - the previews show up on bookmarked threads with no replies. but in order to clear the bookmark, i'm going to have to open up the thread and read it anyway. so what is the preview for? to decide whether or not to check out the thread? but i'm one of those Inbox Zero people, so it's not like i'm just going to let unread bookmarks sit there for days. i have so many bookmarks that i'd quickly accumulate a couple dozen unread bookmarks if i didn't clear them out.

er, this may be more of an issue with how i use bookmarks than the new preview feature, but i'm wondering if anyone else is in the same boat as me.

sorry, i meant

the previews show up on bookmarked threads with NEW replies.

No it’s fair — this might be a feature just for me! What I find is I sometimes read a bookmark and it has something I want to check out later (like a video) or something I need to do (like investigate a bug) so I keep the bookmark where it is. But then I can’t see if the thread has updated.

I was going to add unread status balls but figured this would be better.

the good post you want to read is only rarely the very latest post, ftb the conversational gestalt of ilx so basically karl otm i think

i like this idea! or maybe, even just to add a little more information, a number to indicate the number of new posts since you last checked the bookmark. if there are two updated bookmarks, one with the 14 new posts and the other with 1, that provides useful information in a few different ways.

that's a p dece idea

still holding out for @ing people, which would create a link at the top of the page going straight to the post where you were @ed (or something)

The only thing we need is search

Fuck all the newfangled nonsense. If you want to make ilx about stalking yourself & others, you gotta put the work in

four weeks pass...

Tried those suggestions but no joy.
Have you logged in and out on Zing too? If all else fails deleting and reinstalling should sort it


Been off board for a few weeks but tried this suggestion again and all good! Thanks stet.

Now just need to sort out the font size re the board descriptions. Seems to have become really cluttered.

been meaning to mention, I can see that it's a neat idea but I really don't like the preview. Any way to make that an option?

dan selzer, Saturday, 9 June 2018 11:43 (six months ago) Permalink

It’s on the roadmap, coming in an upcoming release.

Are you on iOS 10? That causes this - fixed in next release

stet, Saturday, 9 June 2018 22:58 (six months ago) Permalink

I think so. Cheers. I'll update.

Did you ever get a chance to take a look at the bug where if you rotate the phone to landscape and back, the thread jumps back a bunch of posts?

DJI, Wednesday, 19 September 2018 17:27 (two months ago) Permalink

two weeks pass...

any chance we can get rid of the preview (or make it an option) soon? I just got hit with a Better Call Saul spoiler!

dan selzer, Thursday, 4 October 2018 17:51 (two months ago) Permalink

yes

and i continue to be hit on preview by certain prolific posters i have reluctantly blocked

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Thursday, 4 October 2018 19:20 (two months ago) Permalink

This bugs me too. I will fix both!

stet, Thursday, 4 October 2018 21:35 (two months ago) Permalink

Sad!

Preview?

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Thursday, 4 October 2018 23:02 (two months ago) Permalink

bookmarks in zing show a preview of the latest post in the thread underneath the thread title, takes up a lot of room and often contains spoilers.

Machine Gunk Jelly (Spottie), Thursday, 4 October 2018 23:54 (two months ago) Permalink

ahhh. i dont use bookmarks.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Thursday, 4 October 2018 23:58 (two months ago) Permalink

inconceivable!

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Thursday, 4 October 2018 23:59 (two months ago) Permalink

i mostly just rely on the dots! So on mobile ILX is kinda hard to navigate at all haha.

Having SNA show up before / above bookmarks would be a massive improvement to this user’s experience

Not sure why but the “help me learn Japanese” thread will not load any answers at all on iOS 12. Everything else fine apart from the occasional lockup.

Same

my minor complaint is embedded twitter vids won’t play but I’ve found workarounds so it’s v v low priority

Clay, Saturday, 6 October 2018 18:38 (two months ago) Permalink

haha yeah at this point i think of that not as a bug but as just a particularity, a lovable quirk
