User shouts & shoutbox updates

  • Announcement
  • Updated 4 years ago
Just made some updates related to shouts (aka: comments) for tv shows, episodes, and movies. The biggest change is each user profile now shows a count of how many shouts they have written. Notice the number on the far right.



When you click on this shout count, it will display a page containing all shouts that user has written. This is helpful to see a user's thoughts on all of the media they have taken the time to comment on. This list will paginate if needed. Notice this page also has ratings and supports quick ratings if you are signed in (hover over a poster).



All of the summary pages and blog have been updated with the same new look. If you are logged in, your shouts will show up in blue so you can easily see where you participated in the conversation.



Lastly, all timestamps now correctly respect the timezone and 24hr settings. The community page will be getting some updates surrounding shouts in the near future, so be on the lookout for that.

Check out my shouts page at http://trakt.tv/user/justin/shouts for a live example.

The thumbnails of the movies/shows in user-shouts-summary-page are a bit to large. I would vote for smaller ones.

We can't really go any smaller on those since they need to show the rating % and the overlays (hearts, watched, etc) and those features need the size currently used.

Do you really need to show the overlays in the shouts summary as well? I guess, there are other views that are more appropriated to this issue, i.e., I don't always need every information that is possible to represent ;)

I think so yes. Say I am looking over your shouts and you left a really good recommendation, I can easy tell if I have that movie in my collection or watchlist for example. Same thing if you left a negative shout, I might see that I watched it and loved it and want to add my .02 to the discussion.

Okay, then what about "outsourcing" this information in this view to an overlay that is displayed on a hover effect? Currently, the shouts summary view is protracts the single comments due to its large thumbnails.
