(A generic topic - as usual. Everything about news on this site, news section layout, sorting, etc.)
James (Mr Cridland), we were already discussing this topic on the old site.
We might need a reporting tool for miscategorised articles and those in the wrong language.
I suggest it'll be an automaton with a supervisor to check it out time to time.
It might be even temporary - in order to calibrate the engine. (It might be needing more fields/checks in this case.)
Well, if you saw a YouTube list (eg "Watch later"), it might be the idea: we have some toolkit in the right top corner of each item's box (width=100%) there. Nice?
For PCs, the dropdown is a solution, but I've had an impression you wanted the site to fit for tablets etc., so it might be either a pop-up or a new window.
The fields/checks to fill out/check might be like
1) what's wrong, 2) why. A suggestion field - depending on the scenario...
Hello there! James!
When are we to report news items - miscategorised, duplicates, excess perhaps, etc.? Thinking of anything? (image)
The issue here is that if you are signed-in, you don't get to see any specific news page. So we'd need to put a reporting tool in the main index, which isn't too pretty.
How bad is the problem? The news I see (I mostly see the global page, probably like you) is pretty good; some in other languages but I'm deliberately marking those as translatable and link to Google Translate in that case.
You made me think...
I've got to think of a couple of means.
- A dropdown like on Facebook.
- A "pop-in" reporting tool like on Google: you just click a single report button, and the page appears in a frame to outline or show something... Well, it's more like a bug report...
What I mean here is you might have an additional regime of loading the same page - but with certain instruments this time... 1 - usual browsing; 2 - click of a button - the reporting regime.:)
Just tried twice to pop through to the "Scotland disruption" news article.
Well, I got a page stating
Please complete the security check to access www.a516digital.com
First, I couldn't see the source from that link. So I don't know if it was a legitimate site or a hijack. Or a glitch.
In that page, it also tells me about that I'd better check my system for viruses... That's why it looks like BS times 2 for me.
Many websites - not mine - use technology that protects them from automated enquiries and tests. A516 uses Google's Blogger, which - just like everything else Google uses - has some flood protection. I'd probably not worry too much about it.
The visible title of this news item seems to match neither the title nor the content of the actual article where I was redirected.
