Re: Tabulated review threads sorted by average score

^ I was considering parsing out all the series titles and turning them into checkboxes, but actually just a search field that acts as a filter and a "(e.g. TNG, DS9, ...)" where those are clickable to quickly add them to the field might be better. Along with a way to link this as ?filter=pattern so filtered lists can be hotlinked on the forums.

Re: Tabulated review threads sorted by average score

I feel this is a better place to discuss this:

^ AFAIK any user can edit any thread's tags at any time. From a code POV it'd mean searching for threads by a tag, and checking that already-collected threads didn't lose the tag. It's a little more complicated than the title version (which doesn't use the forum search engine, which is a bit more complex to interact with programmatically).
Yeah, any user can add tags if I'm not mistaken.

If it's not too complicated (or error prone) it might be a non-intrusive way to get books on the table if they meet the poll requirements (like the Rebels trilogy).

On the whole I think we should attempt this . But it might take me a bit before I get around to it, work is pretty crazy right now. Will report back when it's done.

Yep, that'd help. What do we want to use as tag? "reviewpoll"? "reviewpoll_v1"?

Re: Tabulated review threads sorted by average score

Let's go with "reviewpoll_v1" then (submitting to the engineer's impulse to build versioning into things, you never know if we end up changing the poll format at some point after all ...). Just a bit worried that's too non-human and people end up editing them away.

Re: Tabulated review threads sorted by average score

Finished. Added it to all threads already in the ranking plus the three Rebels book.

I noticed that now the tag is by far the biggest in the tag cloud on the front page.

I'll PM T'Bonz and trampledamage, so that they know what is going on.

Re: Tabulated review threads sorted by average score

Hmm I kinda forgot the tags are in a global namespace. Maybe we should go with "bookreviewpoll_v1" or so ... other subforums could conceivably also do review polls, but differently.

Re: Tabulated review threads sorted by average score

Somehow I doubt anyone will add the _v1 even if they use the tag reviewpoll for other review threads.

I would say we let it be for now.
