I've been meaning to revamp the journals for a while now, since I think that it doesn't fit right into the site and looks a little cluttered.
What I'll be doing is the following:
- Cleaning up the journal home page
- Allowing guests to view public journal entries
What I would like to hear is any suggestions you have that are specific to the journal system, both as a whole and specifically on your profile. What would you like to see added? Any suggestions welcome.
Please keep all discussion on the topic of journals - this is not a normal site suggestions thread and all non-journal suggestions will be deleted. If you want to suggest things other than journals, please see http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=307091.
I'd like some way to tell when my journal has been commented on. It doesn't happen a lot, but as far as I can tell the only way to check is to actually go to my journal and look at the reply counts?
I go to my profile page and see if my journal comment count incremented. Would be nice if there were a pop-up, like the one you get when you have new PMs.
I second Petchy's suggestion of being able to edit comments, it's something I've wanted to do on more than one occasion. Especially when I post in other people's journals and then realize I can't spell.
Ok. I'm trying to post a new thread in this Site Suggestions forum but it keeps locking me out.
My suggestion -- I noticed we have some initial Barbie doll inspired projects. There's a recent article I came across on Yahoo! that spoke of a designer actually making and incorporating Barbie inspired furniture into a real "Barbie Dream House".
Can we do an Barbie-inspired furniture, fashion 'pad'? You'll see some pictures (the furniture is sooo cute, like the Barbie print chair that the designer is sitting in, the mirror that is covered with 1950's Barbie dolls, and the round orange cushioned seating and white leather wrap around fun sofa. LOVE it! How about it?
This isn't a suggestion regarding the site (let alone journals) - the staff don't make the uploads, the creators do. So, if you have an idea of a download you'd like to see, go for the Create section and knock yourself out.
