I think I may have pinned down a decent LJ solution to the problem of crossposting. People do it with tools and by hand, but it would be nice if it could be done LJ-based somehow. Newsgroups-style crossposting doesn't work well on LJ. But there may be a "collapse entry on friends page" tool coming down the pipe, a sort of thing that would still show you the username/comm/title/number of comments, and an option to uncollapse it. And if a post that was detected (either by the poster saying it was a crosspost, or the utility detecting that it was an exact dup in another comm) as a crosspost were to be automatically collapsed, with a note saying it was auto-collapsed due to cross-posting ... I don't see how that would do anything to mess anyone up.
Because some things are best done in little bits, I've just tackled the boxes and booze from the dining room area. The booze is now tidily and gloriously displayed on top of some kitchen cabinets.
I've been working on suggestions stuff most of the afternoon and evening. Is it wrong that I find this more engaging and entertaining than going to the work2 party that I was planning to go to?
suggestions got a whole influx of people because of that post. I am immensely proud that the suggestions regulars are helping out the way that they are, and am pleased as anything about the volunteers helping too. <3
Work this afternoon was very slow. I was one of only a handful on my team who stayed; our supervisor told us we had the option of going home.
V called last night.
