Again, more angst and confusion - I am still perplexed at this strange 7 day thing, I challenge anyone to supply any valid data that this is serving any purpose for visits or whatever or just a way to get more threads going.
Again, why can’t the click-face view be a selectable option in the profile, so people who want them will have them all the time, those that don’t, won’t, and those who don’t care can continue to do so. Harrumph and good night …
@medz So, assuming there’s really only some dozens who really want it there all the time, the default setting would be off, which most people wouldn’t bother changing. So the net bandwidth load would probably be the same or lower than the current setup. And I can’t imagine a bunch of single-bit icons adding that much overhead, anyway.
of course, this is just my speculative take on it - would love to hear what the actual Meh nerds have to say about it.
@medz@stolicat I’m still pushing my proposal, which is rather than >6 days-in-a-row, do >30 clicks-all-time. Would take longer to get there, but if new people want to see it, it builds a sticky habit, and would be a nice delighter if someone stumbled into it.
Before I clicked my first Meh button, I had no idea how rewarding it was. Then, before I saw my first “collection”, I had no idea what a sense of accomplishment it was. But it wasn’t until I lost my first streak that I had any idea how much enjoyment it gave me.
That, or it’s just another form of addiction for which I desperately need help.
