The Project AMPLE team invites you to test out our custom blog site! This blog site was uniquely designed to enhance the usefulness to its participants by implementing a number of nifty features. We really wanted to encourage everyone to externalize as many of their thoughts as possible so we developed the blog platform with user interactivity in mind. It includes the following features:
Enhanced comment threading
Feel free to comment on any article or on any other comment. If you’d like to add to or modify one of your existing comments, you can do that too. If you’re a bit shy but have something to say, you can also comment anonymously and change the comments status if you’d like later. And, just in case you made a mistake, you can always delete your comment. Finally, if you’d like to add your thoughts privately, you can make comments that only appear to you for your own reference.
You can also pin any number of articles and/or comments. Pinned content is organized neatly on your account Dashboard so you can easily refer to that content later. Also, all activity associated with the pinned content will be shared directly with you on your Dashboard.
Just like each article, each comment has it’s own weblink and is treated like an article in itself. You can easily share this link with others or save it for your personal use.
We also allow users to make their own independent notes/thoughts that can be shared via others in the Laddice Stream, a place where all users see public activity of the Project AMPLE community. Eventually, we will even be posting your content (if you’d like) to the blog site itself.
Integration into Laddice
Best of all, all your blog activity and pinned content will be automatically saved to your Laddice account upon launch. In fact, all of it is already linked using the hierarchical relationships implied by the comment threading. You will be able to easily navigate and use content that you create and/or pin as well as any linked comments made by others.
For all these reasons and more, we feel the Project AMPLE blog redefines blog platforms as a whole. Needless to say, we’d like to hear about what you think. We’d also like to hear if you could use any additional features and if you have any trouble using the features we’ve already implemented. Share your thoughts below!
View in Tree (New!)
Now you can view and edit blog content in a more easy to use interface: the Tree View. This view generates a visual tree from blog articles and their comment threads so you can easily navigate the relationships between each entry. You can also view a users tree to see their public content in the tree. To make things even easier, you can respond to blogs or comments directly from the tree. Check it out now.
