I’ve taken the Most Commented Threads and Most Viewed Threads listings out of the sidebar and moved each to its own page. The reasons for doing this were two-fold:
- It reduces the amount of work being done in the sidebar and thusly should speed up rendering times for the site in general. Which, even on good days, was taking way longer than I was happy with.
- It allows those lists to encompass the entire range of 40,000+ entries as opposed to just the top 10.
You’ll find links to these sub-pages in the sidebar at about the spot the lists previously occupied. Currently the listings are just one-liner links to individual entries broken down to 100 links per page, but I could also just make the pages modified versions of the site index where the entries are listed in full and just ordered by the proper stat. Take a look at them and see what you think.
The next question is: Do any of you folks make use of the Threads With New Comments list? It seems kind of redundant considering that I already have a link that lists off all of the comments in the order they were posted regardless of what entry they’re on, but some folks might like having the ability to limit it by thread. Or perhaps it should get its own sub-page? Again let me know what you think.
Lastly, I’ve restored the link to SEB’s Cafe Press Shop where you can buy potentially offensive t-shirts that have the SEB logo on them.
