With the addition of moderators, there has been a running joke about sending up the Giraffe signal on a thread that needs moderation.  Fine and good.  But I think we need a different signal, or more of a flag that we can throw down when we don’t really need a moderator, just call to reality. […]

No business venture ever quite goes where you expected, and the further out you try to project the more wrong you will be.  This is why business plans are a riot to read – they are full of airy projections that ultimately all boil down to “we will survive and make money, somehow, now go […]

The private message system has been restored. You will no longer reply to the wrong person. There is still an issue wherein if you go to someone’s profile and click “Send Private Message” the member’s name will not be selected in the “To” drop-down menu, so you’ll have to select them manually. However, the wrong […]

First off, this post does not require counting or drinking for each time you hear Let me be clear*, but feel free to do so, if you need strength and courage. Now, let me be clear*, this info is probably already somewhere on Ricochet, but you know how it is when things are lost, and you can’t find […]

Since the word-limit is still non-compus-mentus (thus negating the point of the current membership tiers), I would like to suggest some new membership tiers and benefits.  Coolidge, Thatcher, and Reagan are already taken, so I’ve had to dig deeper into conservative movement history to find some suitable names; the perks seemed the natural complements to […]

Hi, Everyone, Just an FYI that if you paste in text from Microsoft Word (or from another web site, even) you bring along a lot of unwanted formatting (see below). It’s sort of, but not exactly, like traveling to the United States from Liberia and not realizing that you have Ebola. But luckily, both problems […]

Many people, including me, have complained about the functions and functionality of both 1.0 and 2.0.   It’s not like site X, it should have feature Y, how come Z is still busted, and so forth.  Get that monkey off your back.  Moving to the 2.1 servage seems to have accomplished a lot of “bug […]

I hate to post with no intention of tending the garden.  But I can’t find an active discussion on 2.0.   I really hate 2.0 and would go back to 1.whatever in a heartbeat.  I hate having to scroll past all the pictures.  I don’t get the organization of the site.  I can’t seem to […]

Currently we’ve got the option to like comments. It lets someone know you’re reading their comment, but beyond that it doesn’t convey much information. Since we’re already going to be messing with the format, I suggest we come up with a list of alternative emotions to convey: Like This is Funny This is Sad Those […]

Weeks after 2.0 hit the web, Ricochet still suffers from glitches. Alerts are messed up. My last post took hours to appear. Formatting a simple comment is a mess. But these problems would be trivial if President Romney had not imposed the Ricochet Employer and Individual Mandates. Think about it. These bugs are a drag […]

Now that we can highlight posts with featured images, I see many people using stock images. Questions: (a) Where are you taking your images from? (b) How does it work with respect to rights & licensing? I’ve tended to avoid using images from the Web unless the licensing is free (e.g., Wikimedia) or it is […]

It was about a year ago now that I first discovered Ricochet. I enjoyed the news and commentary of the Main Feed and came to the site a few times a week. What really got me hooked on the site, however, was the conversations. News and editorials can be found in a thousand places on […]

Your Nightly 2.0 Update — At Week’s End

 

If there were ever any doubts that Ricochet is a two-way conversation, this week put them to rest. We rolled out Ricochet 2.0. You told us what you thought. We listened. We’re making upgrades.

We’re proud of our new house. But it’s also just that — a new house. When you first move in, there are a lot of little things that didn’t dawn on you before you actually had to live there. Will the sofa fit in that corner? Does that window catch the morning sun? Which way do you turn the knob in the shower for hot water? Sometimes you get scalded. Yeah, we can relate.
