seems like it's happening again ... don't know if the process can scale, but

If @Pinboard were not actively trying to save the American republic I would beg him to help us figure out how to launch a fandom friendly platform that is inclusive of not just text, but visual and multimedia too
Um Maciej DMed me and said if fandom can get a consensus spec on what such a platform should look like, he'll see what he can do. So here's a doc. I've outlined what I want to see, but I'm sure I've missed stuff.
Fandom platform of the future - specs and features
*wheezing* So, uh, the document has grown to 15 pages of feature requests/requirements. I haven't even given Maciej a link yet. Fandom is fucking amazing.

Pinboard is a low-key, anti-social bookmarking network. When Delicious broke the slash character, fandom folks complained loudly, and Maciej Ceglowski, pinboard's creator whispered that his service still supported it.

Disgruntled fandom folks created a masterpiece spec for how could be more useful for us. Maciej listened -- here's the story.

I wish we could pour all this energy into development for DW.

Thank you for sharing that talk transcript. It's wonderful.

I happen to be involved in a process at work where we are rebuilding the product from scratch and moving the existing users over. it's a lot of work, but with an existing product you have a very robust spec in the form of "go see what it does when you do that." it's the second time I've done it.

while migration is a terror, I think creating a community and body of content is actually harder than the dev work. off the top of my head, the hardest thing would be the style system. but honestly (and I could be wrong) I don't think the customization community is as fierce as they were on LJ when S2 was introduced.

tl;dr we should be creating a dev effort to build DW 2.0 and do a migration.

yup, I'm a style=mine user all the way. in my case it's because I have a heavily customized style that I can read on mobile, but is responsive so that it's not butt-ugly on desktop.

It also has an $11 sign up fee, and requires a mobile phone number.

However, I think the document will be useful going forward.

Now that I'm not absolutely flat broke, I'm okay with paying $1/month to save my bookmarks.

And those specs documents are excellent things.

A Network of Our Own?

I'm wondering if we can use this document to spec out A Network of Our Own: an OTW project where there's a social network where We Own the Servers. I imagine [staff profile] denise is having enough trouble right now making sure DW can handle the extra traffic.

Servers are doing great. We have tons of headroom, we haven’t actually had to do any infrastructure work to handle the load here. :)

FWIW, I’m very interested in figuring out the right way to make Dreamwidth work for the Tumblr-esque uses, we have been talking about it but don’t have a design ready or anything.

"Confused but remarkably vigorous applause" has me giggling so much. I like this person. And I agree about wishing some of that could be incorporated into DW, but I'm not really a fan ish person, I just like many of the ideas for the platform!

I had no idea that the delicious/pinboard thing had ever happened, but is simply amazing.
