The ideas about shoutboxes

  • Under Consideration
We get some useless imo features like answering and likes, which gives us feeling we are more in Facebook than Last.fm. But I have two new ideas, and say what you think about adding it.

1. Showing only one answer to a comment, and for more we should click special link/whatever.
The reason is that many answers to answers to (...) occupy too much space.

2. Option to edit comments. I always wondered why wasn't it on Last.fm when changes like "likes" comes.

So, what you think about it?

PS: I'm sick about these new features. I know it's not unnecessary to write it here, but.. it's sad that my dislike is considered like "moronic malcontent". Looking at new shoutboxes give me thought that there's much more spam than was before. Like on Joy Division site.

Thanks for your feedback Tom.

1. Yep, you're right.  We're planning to add this in a later update. 

2. It's under consideration, along with other shoutbox features; but for now you can always delete and then repost your edited shout.  

With regards to shoutbox spam and other anti-social behaviour, we're monitoring how people use the new features and will make appropriate changes depending on how things go.  

One thing that's currently in the works is improving the ignore list, so that shouts by ignored users aren't displayed, and they can't reply or interact with your shouts.

Thanks for answer! It's nice to know what staff is planning and about these "ignore list" features - it will be nice improvement if it is implemented.
