Thank! One feature I can suggest up-front is good search. Two kinds:

1. Doing whatever gets you indexed by DuckDuckGo, Google, etc

2. Having a search feature on the site for keywords, filters by time/user/tag, and so on. Apart from discovery, this also lets me check to see if something was already submitted to avoid wasting folks' time.

I request that hyperlinks not be truncated. Currently the end of a long link is replaced with ...

It makes it difficult to copy and paste a post to someone.

Ok, I bumped the hyperlink truncation threshold from 60 to 100. It might be raised or lowered depending on how it affects commenting.

If you think of a better way to handle this, let me know.

In Mastodon I can copy links with ellipses and somehow magically still end up with the full link in my clipboard. Might be worth researching how it manages that.

-----


Thanks! Ended up using a similar solution.

-----


Ok, I replaced hyperlink truncation with a css effect. Comments can be copied now.

I don't know how many others are like me, but I like having an actual date and time for each permalink. Maybe as a tooltip on the 'n days ago'?

Done! (UTC time for now.)

Here's the commit for the UTC timestamp change: https://github.com/shawwn/arc3.2/commit/1272ce88a34108589ac769ee870543a4a7ebc0eb

Since laarc.io wants to be partly like Pinboard, a place for us to store our bookmarks, I find myself wishing for a place where I could showcase my bookmarks. Two key features I'd like:

a) Allow me to control the order in which they show up. (There can also be a view that's chronological, maybe even with RSS. But when first-time visitors show up I want them to see the greatest hits.)

b) Allow me to organize my bookmarks using tags. You already have tags, give me a view for all posts added by me with some tag.

Some points of comparison:

1. HN favorites. See mine at https://news.ycombinator.com/favorites?id=akkartik. But only one namespace, and strictly ordered by most recently added.

2. Google+'s Collections feature (https://plus.google.com/+googleplus/posts/7ZpGWeou2sV). Here's one that I created: https://plus.google.com/collection/cmGHYB. You can see how it shows up on my profile at http://akkartik.name/google. Multiple namespaces but ordered by most recently added.

3. The old del.icio.us used to have global bookmarks for a tag at /tag/tag1, and user's tags at /user/user1/tag/tag1, with ways to easily jump around between the two. I always thought that was really nice.

To corroborate your position, your favorites already led me to rediscover some good stuff. Really liked that [blockchain article](https://medium.com/@kaistinchcombe/decentralized-and-trustless-crypto-paradise-is-actually-a-medieval-hellhole-c1ca122efdec). Re-bookmarked it on new system. :)

(Speaking of [foo](https://example.com) syntax, I'm planning to add markdown support for that. Stay tuned!)

-----


Oh yeah, that was a slip. I've clearly spent more time posting links on Lobsters than HN recently. Yeah, Markdown or a HTML subset would be nice. Embedding the links is an advantage Lobsters has over HN since it reduces clutter.

fix doubleposting, If i click "add comment" twice quickly 2 comments may be posted. This could be fixed by making a one time code in the form or something.

Ok, duplicate replies are killed and marked as a dupe.

One minor bug I ran into: when I submitted a pdf I hit 'suggest title' just to see what would happen, and noticed that it filled the title with 'running...' or something like that? It took a while so I lost patience and filled out the title. But then I lost it when the request finally completed and filled out 'unknown' in the text box. It feels like a fairly complex workflow and I probably don't understand all the ins and outs. Maybe just follow how Reddit or Lobsters does it?

Fixed. Thanks! If the suggestion takes too long to generate, you can now safely type in a different title without worrying about it being nuked mid-entry.

Awesome! This takes care of one of the prerequisites for https://www.laarc.io/item?id=230#313 :)

Thank you!
