[20:16:12] <Blackmoore> any editors around?
[20:28:13] <Blackmoore> I guess I need to get onto dev and up to speed.
[20:28:19] <Blackmoore> and off i go
[20:29:13] <juggs> good luck
[20:46:11] <Blackmoore> actually the interface isnt hard to get.
[20:46:44] <Blackmoore> I do need to get the style down.
[20:47:04] <Blackmoore> it would help if we had more in the dev tank.
[20:53:49] <Blackmoore> BAH. i cant get the greasmonkey script to work.\

[22:37:29] <lentilsoup> I'm just going to run this up the flagpole: set up a process that delays the newest story from being published if the previous one has less than P comments unless it has been more than Q hours since it went live.
[22:40:42] <lentilsoup> The current predefined timing has its downsides. Just now, the artificial sweetner story went live only 42 minutes after its predecessor, which only has 2 comments at the time.
[22:43:01] <lentilsoup> So, maybe you can analyze all previous stories and see if their is a cutoff point after which very little comments get added, if at all. A complication is, of course, that subject matters and tones of voice have a major effect on comment counts.
[22:43:40] <lentilsoup> But let it not be said that lentilSoup is unhelpful!
[22:44:03] <juggs> lentilsoup is nutritious!
[22:44:41] <lentilsoup> It sure is!
[22:44:44] <lentilsoup> Tasty, too.
[22:45:36] <lentilsoup> Err, that was not a double entendre.
[23:12:13] <paulej72> i would worry that keeping some stories on top will not increase the comment count
