Re: Presentation - draft site intro

I have provided a link to the ODP slideshow in the About page. Hopefully with more feedback, this will become the goto guide for folks interested in portable freeware on the Internet!

Re: Search overloaded?

I suspect the database server went rogue. It totally stopped accepting connections 2 day ago.

After restarting the db server, things seem to be back to normal now.

Re: Broken link

Fixed and pointing to the right forum topic now.

I used Internet Archive to find out which topic it originally linked to.

I think somewhere along the way, that topic got merged with another.

Re: NEW USERS PLEASE READ!

I don't get it. The answer is practically below the question, one hyperlink away.

The occasional kind words is a wonderful thing! :D

This site is truly a community effort. Wouldn't be possible without everyone's contributions.

Re: Biniware Run

@smaragdus: I believe we have the same outllook on this issue. Unfortunately, the world is made up as many different working styles as there are people. So in the end, I choose to focus on my work, and let the others speak for theirs. I am sure in the end quality will speak for itself.

Cheers.

Wait so THIS thread is going to stay at the top of the Site Matters - Suggestions/Discussions forum?
Nah, the respective topics in the Portable Freeware Discussion forum.

Re: TPFC Awards or Top 10 Apps

On second thought, I made the top-10 topics sticky to give them more visibility, instead of putting them in the front page, where the content is more dynamic. Hope you guys have no objections to this.

Re: Comments suggestion

I think maybe we can go with this approach first: 1. Sort from most recent first 2. Show 10 most recent with link to expand. This should be quite easy to do, probably only a few hours' work, including test. If we find that this is not enough, and we need pinned comments, then we can revisit it late...

Re: TPFC Awards or Top 10 Apps

Right, yeah. What I wondered though is whether the curated top 10 would change over time based on user feedback, since otherwise it might remain the same programs if nothing was updated with it (unsure how long it might be in the sidebar), when other programs might also be worth highlighting in the...

Re: TPFC Awards or Top 10 Apps

Just curious, would this be an ongoing, periodically updated list? As I'm wondering, if the goal is to highlight hidden gems and work from standout devs vs the programs seen, say, in the Popular list it would seem to me beneficial to refresh from time to time the recommendations to give other progr...

Re: Comments suggestion

I think we need to nail down on how to present _both_ pinned comments and 10 most recent comments, both of which must be presented before the hidden comments. Maybe we can have this: == Top 5 voted comments == == Most recent 10 comments == == Click to show all comments (most recent first) == Any oth...
