Blog bug report

Good idea from reader Korey K. to create a bug report/suggestion list.

Here we’ll list some of the bugs that are being ironed out on the site and offer a forum for suggestions. Some bugs are minimal (thankfully) while others are downright annoying. None are life-threatening, or at least we have no reports of anyone dying from the TucsonCitizen.com blog bugs yet.

bugHere’s several right off the bat:

• Commenters are for now required to give their life story, or at least fill out info boxes prior to commenting. This will change when the registration is up and running. The registration will put the commenting option back to how it was on the old site.

• ReCAPTCHA for commenters. This is the box that appears before a comment can be submitted. It makes you type in the text you see to prove you are human and not a computer spam generator. I thought this was go away but am not sure. Having to type in the ReCAPTCHA is overall less annoying than being overrun by spam. UPDATE from Andre IT – This will go away once the registration is up and running.

• Lack of avatars. Yes, we know we need those fun little pictures by our names. Coming soon.

• Time stamp is off. As it stands, it’s an hour later than it’s supposed to be. This ages us unnecessarily and makes us think we’re late for the dentist. It will be amended. UPDATE from Andre IT – This has been fixed.

Please note any other glitches and suggestions below or e-mail me at rynski@tucsoncitizen.com or Mark Evans at mevans@tucsoncitizen.com

Thanks for your patience during our “hell in the hallway” phase.

When one door closes, another one opens – but it’s hell in the hallway.

Keep reading and commenting – we duly appreciate your support. Especially appreciate the comments.

    I love the way you are finding and introducing bloggers. I love your voice in this post and the hell in the hallway quote – it is more appropriate than you might imagine for lots of us :-). As a former staffer now independent journalist looking forward in the bright new media landscape, I admire you and Mark for staying positive and working your tails off in spite of formidable odds and way too many naysayers. You go, girl!
