    Yeah, notifications of replies probably has to come in. No bother, we can do it. » Read

    I'm not going there 😉 » Read

    Sure but we'd have mods supplementing this and mods votes are heavier when it comes to ratings. » Read

  4. The Knee Jerk - Gameweek 1 - Friday 6 days, 7 hours ago

    The plan would be to form a group of users who have higher voting rights or voting weights and encourage them to vote up discussions. Only users we trust to identify good content would be in that group and their votes would carry more weight. » Read

    People would be upvoting non RMT content becuase we will take on more mods and tell them to 😉 » Read

    It's top because, within the thread, replies have some upvotes.We can tweak this, we can reduce the impact of replies on the discussion rating.The other thing we can do is to give some users votes more weight. So if mods vote up a discussion, it gets a higher rating. In this way, we can easily raise discussions and curate. » Read

    We'd have filters that would filter out discussions that hadn't received any upvotes.Of course, we'd soon ban any users who abused this by removing their voting rights. In this way, we'd build up a trusted group of users who would be voting and therefore curating the discussions.It's all in place, we just need to tweak a few things.That's the beauty of HomeCrowd, it's our code, we do what we like and add what we need or want. » Read

    Then we'd encourage people to use themIf we had a filter for only show upvoted discussions for example, how could folk legitimately gripe about having to wade through RMTs?In one click, they wouldn't have to. They probably would but it would be a bit unfair when we give them the facility to fix it. » Read

    Very good point.I'll get them added. » Read

    We need to add some tools and then change the way folk view comments because the pace of comments shouldn't matter. It's not about keeping up, its about viewing what you want to see, no matter when or how quickly it arrives.If we break away from viewing them as they appear and view discussions by rating or by a certain category, everything changes.I'm going to look again at how we implement voting as a method of users filtering out discussions.So for example, if folk voted more for discussions that were not RMT, they could easily filter out all RMT's by just ordering by votes.It's all about changing the use and behaviour but we have to introduce more features first. My focus and Mat;s will be on this soon and, it will take time, but we will make changes and hopefully improve things. » Read

    Don't worry, things calm down now the season has started. We will start looking at HomeCrowd this month.We;re adding Expected Goals and Prices, then switching attention to HomeCrowd and improving comments. » Read

  12. The Knee Jerk - Gameweek 1 - Friday 6 days, 8 hours ago

    Not a members filter but we are bringing in the ability to filter by tags and users. I think it would be wrong to presume that only members make good posts 😉 » Read

    I'll cover him in notes in the morning. He was fascinating. » Read

  14. The Knee Jerk - Gameweek 1 - Friday 6 days, 8 hours ago

    Agreed, I don't think he felt influential despite the stats. » Read

    Bottled it. Didn't want to play with two potential doubts for GW2. Sane could play LWB in home matches. » Read

    Did you (c) Laca, Luke? » Read

  17. The Knee Jerk - Gameweek 1 - Friday 6 days, 8 hours ago

    I thought he looked dangerous enough. It wasn't comfortable viewing as a non-owner and I think he'll get over 20 goals if he stays fit. As I say above, though, I don't think he can be pushed into the same bracket as Lukaku and Kane so it remains to be seen if the saving can be effective. A long long way to go and it was just one performance. » Read

    You win a bun if you can define his position based on any coaching manual.He clearly plays where he likes. » Read
