There's No Flow in STEEMIT - you cannot jump from 1 post to another

in #steemit6 years ago (edited)

I love #STEEMIT, but there's no flow; it's impossible to go from 1 post to another

Unless there are links to other posts that are put there by the author or dropped in the comments, you always need to go to another index page first; be it the homepage, a category page, one of the tags or your feed ... there are plenty of options to find another list of posts, but no direct links to individual posts.

This while there's plenty of space on the right side, where the sidebar is supposed to be. right?

Some related posts there would be great, maybe some other top articles of the same author with the same tag, top articles of the tags used in the original post ... plenty of options to have some links there, with the thumbnail of course, just to color the page up a bit.

It would really make a big difference in usability, as there will be a flow then, readers no longer need to 'go back' to an index page to find other posts to read.

This while it can't be too hard to write some coding simply to display some links, right? @dan & @ned?

Do you agree or do you think it's just fine now?



you are full of shit motherfucker !! this is still not your idea, i doubt you have ever had a good idea all your life !! i see now you have yet again changed your post !! removed all of my comments you know the ones where i toild you the solution to the flow in steemit that you yourself had no idea how to resolves but liked to bitch about along with your name calling of Dan !! so yeah suck it up you trul de cul !! if y0u dont understand my angry post here then you should all read this to find out why its here!!

Well, good to know that Dandy Dan has time to write a 1.935 words article.

But there's no weekly newsletter with steemit updates, to let us know what they're working on, what has already been changed and so on ... we just have to guess?

Does anybody know who you're supposed to follow, to stay up to date with the latest changes?

It's not Dandy Dan, that's for sure!

But we do love @ned, don't we !?! my dear followers ;-)

It's still in beta, so.... your remarks will probably be adressed at some point. The goal is to make it into a 'sort of' facebook. And that means the chat-window option, PM's and a whole range of things. Making a group for people with the same interest or language for instance. I mean...there's just a hell of a lot to do, if they want to compete with the best.

So your points are valid, but hopefully already in the process of creation

I know and I got a bunch more suggestions, but this seems like a rather easy thing to do for them, no?

to set up a secured, private ms is a lot more complex than adding a few lines of code to the templates and have some links on the side ... it doesn't have to do anything, there's nothing behind it, just some links

they should be able to do this in a matter of days and comparing the little bit of effort with the significant difference it will make for the users ... massive ROI guaranteed

There is the question of determining what links to show though. There are some 'easy' options, but pretty much any implementation is going to draw criticism from different groups about fairness. There is also the difficult task of determining relevancy and choosing posts the reader would want to see. Doing this feature 'right' is actually not so easy.

I do think it should be done though, and am in support of the idea. I know they are hard at work to improve Steemit and add new features, so I suspect it is only a matter of time.

well ...

  1. the $SD is there for a reason = the post with the highest $SD for the same tag's
  2. but people also like to find new stuff, so ... latest post under the same tag's

that are already 10 posts, that should be enough
(ok, maybe 1-2 posts of the author)

just my $0.0002 SD ;-)

I think you've got a good point. This is a great platform but still being worked on and improved everyday. In time, in time.. =)
