@tsarstepan,
I wonder if you follow and ignore the same person, if you will explode a hamster...



hmmmmmmm.

@tsarstepan,
Thank you, my dear.

But, I dunno, I think for the minute I'll pass on that.

I'm just gonna meet folk online, as they come!

I'll find out if it's a twitter like application or just a popularity contest. So far it's too soon to say what exactly following entails.


Well I actually did go to my profile & check out who I was "following" & who was "following" me.

Interestingly (without having made any "following" choices myself, if such choices are actually possible. I don't know) ... I discovered that I was following just one person, the bunny. The wabbit is clearly the person I most constantly respond to. (Which isn't surprising, because Deb's threads always interest me & I respond to them often.)

I also regularly respond to a wide variety of different A2Kers, probably far too many to make me a "follower" of any particular individuals.

What can't be recorded at all , though, are a smallish number of A2Kers whose threads & postings I always make a point of following & reading (out of interest & for information) , but respond to only from time to time, when I have something I really want to add to their discussions.

So, at first glance, this is not about a "popularity contest" at all.

@msolga,
I find it a bit unfortunate we've had this discussion in a "War" thread (hamsters vs members). Can I just make it perfectly clear that I have nothing but gratitude & respect for the A2K hamsters. This is a great site & we're lucky to have it. I'm glad you're our hamsters because you do such a good job.

@msolga,
Whoa! I had no idea that one might be down as following without having clicked to do so!

I am wondering if it is a glitch, or we're in some test phase...or the feature snuck in again without having been intentionally released????

I am sure it is NOT a popularity thing! I imagine it will simply allow one to be alerted to threads where people you find interesting are posting, in case you are interested too.

@dlowan,
Well, I haven't clicked anything at all, Deb.

So I'm assuming (initially at least) that it's based on member participation & interaction.

@msolga,
OK, now I'm confused. I've clicked on other profiles to see "has not yet added friends" & empty spaces.

Whats a "smarty error" ?


Yes, I was wondering, too. Confused

My first encounter with this variety of error ... which came with a warning alert.


Smarty is a templating system for PHP. We were uploading templates so templates were missing briefly and generated errors.

Whatever this list actually means?


A lot will be done with it eventually, but the first thing will be that you will have a page where you can see the posts by your friends in chronological order.

If you are fairly active and reading pretty much all posts it won't make a huge difference, but for those who would like to save time and follow specific users there will be a single page where you can do so.
