Quackcast 367 - What's in a title? And reply notifications

LISTEN!

In this Quackcast we discuss a couple of things. First we chat about the prototype comment reply notification system that Alexey our programmer has just now come up with and people like Albino Ginger helped to pay for! And we talk about ways to make it more user-friendly, like having the first line of a comment show up on the comment notification pages… We'd LOVE more feedback on that! So please consider testing out the system and giving us your take on it.
Then we chatted about the art of the TITLE! Why do things have the titles they do? What are some good or bad titles? Why did you choose YOUR title? Star Wars is an example of a good title for a movie: it told people exactly what to expect in a time when there weren't many other films like it, this is why it was never called “A New Hope” or “Episode 4” the way we mistakenly call it today, because no one in 1977 would have gone to see it ;)
Happy birthday!!!!!!! Mr Banes! Banes Had his birthday DURING the Quackcast! Woot! Please show some love for this amazing guy ^_^

This week Gunwallace has given us the theme to Holy Bible the Albino Ginger Version: Wonder into the giant cathedral of our lord, the revered and sacred Albino Ginger, watch the dust motes dance in the multicoloured sunbeams, tinted into rainbow shades by stained glass windows depicting the mighty feats of the Albino Ginger god as he was creating our world… This is techno trance church music for a new age!

1977...I was a disco king then. The Poison Apple disco...great times. Unfortunately I need a walker and 2 skilled nurses to get around now.

Awesome Podcast. Happy B-day Banes. The song is cool to listen to. Banes made a good point with the comments/replies.

You ARE an amazing guy :)

Happy Birthday, Mr Banes.

Banes at 11:42AM, March 27, 2018

thanks for the birthday wishes, haha. Thanks for including that in the QC notes, oz, that cracked me up!

I think I recall the name of that film... @Ginger- yeah, thumbnails seem a popular idea.

Another one of those vaulted movies that was named as a sequel of an unrelated movie to capitalize on a popular title was American Psycho 2.

Happy birthday to Banes. I hope an adequately festive time was had.... a post quackcast d&d party, perhaps.

Albino Ginger at 4:40AM, March 27, 2018

Also Love My Theme song! Thanks Gunwallace XD

the only suggestion I have for the new comments systems is, maybe having a thumbnail of the page the comment is on?

Mr Banes, a most happy birthday to you sir.
