in reply to How do you track nodes/replies of interest?

If you want to highlight posts/threads in Newest Nodes or RAT View you can add extra CSS to do so.

For instance I'm highlighting myself and some authors I prefer to ignore.

Furthermore: I'm using a Nodelet Hack in JS to fold all threads in RAT , so you could exempt those you wanna "track".

NB: AFAIK does RAT have a max time window, hence if you only log in in yearly intervals this approach will fail.

    G'day Rolf,

    [Note: This is not intended as a specific reply to you; it's more general information for universal consumption. This just looked like a good place to post it.]

    "... does RAT have a max time window ..."

    For "Newest Nodes":

    • The default period is 24 hours.
    • There is a dropdown list allowing the selection of the last 1 to 14 days.
    • For 1 to 7 days, you'll see all new posts under their sections (SoPW, Meditations, etc.) followed by a "Notes" section which lists all replies, to any OPs, in that period.
    • For 8 to 14 days, new posts are displayed the same; however, the "Notes" section now just shows: Skipping huge list of notes. So that limits checking on replies older than a week.

    See also: "Newest Nodes Settings" for some finer grained control over what is displayed.

    [Disclaimer: This information is based on over a decade's worth of personal, empirical evidence. I believe it to be correct but, as I'm not a member of the pmdev cabal, I can't guarantee it. I'm more than happy to be corrected on any of this.]

      Hi

      I remember a similar discussion when choroba (thankfully) came back from longer (CoViD related) offline-ness and tried to check on older discussions.

      > Skipping huge list of notes

      IIRC, this skipping depends on the number of nodes, not the time frame.

      Well as PMDev I could check the code, but I'm quite busy right now.

      see also Re: Problems with Newest Nodes (retrospection)

        I rarely need to go back a week or more; it happens occasionally due to travelling, illness or similar. What I described is in line with what I've always seen. Before posting, I did check it: up to 7 days gave all "Notes"; 8 gave "skipping huge list".

        The disclaimer merely reflects my inability to provide absolute, factual evidence. It also indicates that I considered the possibility of a "$note_count > $huge_count" condition. I'm still happy to be corrected on this. :-)
