      We are looking into implementing this. What would indicate trending or popular to you all? Would you want it to be recent replies? Lots of recent replies? Most replies? I was considering a Reddit style "reply" decay style logic where recent comments are more valuable than old comments. This would provide a "hotness" score.

        I don't have a specific date, but I've been working on the advanced editing and it is nearly ready.

        GTech_1, no one is planning to force any sort of downgrade. The V5 initial release comprised 5 months of work and included massive improvements to mobile, forums, roster flows, adjustments to nearly every widget, an improved profile design and a whole lot more minor tweaks.

        A few customization features were left out of the initial release, partly because we wanted feedback on what had been completed and partly because we wanted to be more selective as opposed to throwing the kitchen sink at people. We have received lots of feedback that the old customization was confusing and we want to re-add that functionality judiciously.

        We are perfectly happy for you to stay on V4, that is why V5 is an optional update and it will never be a forced update. Please check back soon though as I'm sure V5 will have more of what you love over time.

        Are you referring to HTML widgets or some other area? Just trying to get a bit of clarification.

        GL_Stephen commented  · 

        All of this things are customizable via CSS. We're not putting anything in the way of that. It may require some specific CSS but we aren't doing anything particularly crazy.

        We will be adding more customization options, but in the beta we're building, testing and making sure the foundation is rock solid. Then when we add new options we're going to be making sure each room and embellishment we add is awesome and well thought out.

        GL_Stephen commented  · 

        Just to clarify something. The word "Template" means something a bit different in V5. A "Template" in V5 is more like R14 was in V4. In V5 the "Template" is really just the wireframe of the site. The header location, nav location and basic column layout.

        So, while there are 3 templates you can now apply a color scheme and any header to any of them. This provides far more flexibility than V4 did. What we don't have yet is a style like R14 that had a great deal of transparency.

        We're working on at which layer (template, color, customization) that type visual styling is applied. We want to take great care to add these things in ways that maintain a highly usable system. The V4 customization got a bit jumbled over time because we added options very quickly and didn't always test and integrate them with enough care, and we want to avoid that.

        We are likely to add these as a "style scheme" or something similar instead of infinite configuration. I'm still working through this part in my head, but I want it to be awesome when we do it, not just "working".

        Essentially, the transparency and such was a type of style, not a "feature" of the system per se. The takeaway is that V5 is likely lean towards the current style more than V4 for the near future, but we plan to get back to that type of styling. Not ready to say when exactly because that is really phase 2 customization, but recreating some of the visual style types from V4 is on our to-do list but it is unlikely to be identical.

          Yes, the X button. It was a minus in the early version. We don’t want to run afoul of twitter automation rules. We are looking into a delete all option.

          GL_Stephen commented  · 

          It is a big deal because it is completely against Twitter TOS for APIs. I don't want to get banned from the API.

          GL_Stephen commented  · 

          Which is nice, but when we built it Twitter did not have that delete method. Either way, we aren't going to break Twitter TOS.

          GL_Stephen commented  · 

          Automstic delete all is against Twitter API terms of service. Unfavinator was built before twitter simplified deleting favorites, but is still easier for deleting large volumes of tweets.

            We could look into adding a max height to the spoiler maybe. Let me look into how this might be handled.

              I cannot reproduce this in FF v34 – it is possible there was a bug in v33. Can you try upgrading? If that doesn’t work is there anything special about the file? Name or Size?

              Unicorn - are you running addons in your browser? Try disabling them. This is almost always a client side issue.

              Are you running any addons in Firefox?

                    All, this is a bug (or unsupported) in twitter’s API. There is a point in most people’s favorites history that the API just stops returning results. Often you can see the same “missing” favorites on the actual favorite list on Twitter.com. I hope to find a resolution, but we are stuck with it for now.

                    GL_Stephen commented  · 

                    This appears to be a Twitter bug. They don't seem to know how many Favorites you have or the number has a delay on updating.
