Was I Quoted? - Round 2! Oct. 3rd, 2012 @ 11:29 PM Reply

Hi Newgrounds!

Perhaps some of you remember about a year ago when I launched WiQ initially. Well since then the site has been redesigned and all of my existing code was left incompatible.

Well I thought I'd give it another go, and taking advantage of the League of Legends server downtimes I went ahead and thew out all of my old work and started from scratch. Was I Quoted? is back, and it's better than ever! It's got a new server, better code, and a cleaner interface. I've got big plans for this one so if you guys like it, give me some feedback and I'll be able to put your ideas to play.

For those who don't know, WiQ is a simple tool created for the members of the Newgrounds community to better track their posts and those who reply to them. By plugging in your user name the system will traverse recent threads you have posted in and notify you if someone has responded to your post.

Right now the site is completely functional and ready to use, but there are a few things that need to be added:

1.) Ability to search through more (or a user defined amount) of your past active topics
2.) Real-time notifications that can be plugged into a browser add-onn
3.) Fill out those static pages (F.A.Q, Contact)

I'd love for you to go check it out and tell me what you think. It's a tool made for you so feel free to give me any feedback of future requests and I'll be sure to look into them. I'll be posting development updates in this topic as well as in the "Updates" section of the site.

Was I Quoted v 2.0

This is a neat tool, thanks for sharing.

You would be God if you could re-create this, somehow.

I think this is an excellent little tool that should have been implemented in the redesign. Well, not that I care that much if I do get quoted by other users or not but a handy tool indeed if I do say so myself.


you're all doing a great job

it seems to be working fine. but with a minor incovenience: you are linked to the first page of each thread when you click the topic title, making it a little bit hard to locate my post which has been quoted by someone in the thread. i want to be linked to the page where my post appears instead.

i wonder if it is easy for you to include this feature as well.


^Just another nonsensical forum post.^

That could be something that's also on my list to-do. I'm actually planning on realeasing an API for individual developers to use in order to conveniently make projects such as this one without doing too much HTML scraping. I already have a tremendous amount of data from this project so I might as well let other developers use it.

This is tricky. At this point the tool is working at the topic level; not posts. So each one of these quotes aren't linked to a specific post that you've made but rather any replies to any post you've made in that thread. It would be a good idea, though, and the quotes that are shown are tied to your specific posts so maybe this will be doable. I'll look into this!

I only appear to have one page of about a dozen threads I've posted in recently. Is there any way to see more?

It's on my list to-do. At this point the logic is all of the threads you've posted in on the first page of your BBS profile. I'm going to expand the optioning for this in the very near future.

Update: Added the ability to permalink to your page. So if you want to bookmark your own posts, you can go to http://wiq.phpfogapp.com/#<yourname> (for Tom, I would go to http://wiq.phpfogapp.com/#tomfulp)

Just checked it out and it is pretty awesome. I was actually expecting it to take a little while before it gave me the results but nope, pretty much instantaneous. I'll definitely be bookmarking this.

Nice work Gateau!

It's a pretty cool thing to use, but I don't like how most of the results I get are empty, and it only finds a handful of quotes.

But I did get a chance to see some aggravating quotes. Like some fucker that thinks I play D&D and should get off the internet. There are some things man just isn't meant to see.

Good work. Reminds me of Citricsquid`s old stuff.

It`s a shame he didn`t want to host it, though.

Yeah I actually got a pretty good algorithm going on the front-end and the back-end. Part of why I returned to this project, even in light of my inactivity on NG, is because of the challenge the concept gave me. From a technical perspective it's fairly complicated.

I could if I ever get some more spare time. The community has changed a lot since I was last active and I'm not too sure the amount of people who would use it.

At this point the system is just looking for the most recent threads you have last posted in. This is an arbitrary number because it's limited (right now) by the first page in your BBS post search (e.g http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/search/author/Razz)

Been using this the last few days now and it's great. It saves me having to trawl though threads I posted in to see if I have anything to respond to.

Just bumping this thread to raise awareness. You guys should definitely check it out if you haven't already.
