Anahita Social Discussions Now Does Stories

Anytime we start a new topic, it will also create a story in our activity feed for people to see. Here is an example. #anahita #social #development

The SEF urls are also working too, however the discussion boards still doesn\'t work if it is set to public. I\'ve been fixing discussion boards bugs all day. There are just about 9-10 task items left so we can have the beta release ready.

For the start the replies RSS feed needs to show the topic title, and also the permalinks don\'t seem to always work with the pagination!

@Sarah - Thank you! I\'ll fix those in the next development hour
@Dale - Thank you :)
will there be an easy "quote" ability for specific posts? or perhaps even tree-like indented commenting as such:

com
-reply
com
-reply
--com
---reply
--com
-com

I think it really adds an important element to conversations and has become standard on many platforms.. what do you think of it's implementation?
well.. maybe it's more for commenting on other modules.. more so than discussion.. as perhaps in a paginated discussion it might be difficult to follow back to previous pages.. I don't know..
It is technically possible to create nested comments, but at this point we've decided to keep it simple. I think if people need to branch out they can always start a new topic, this will also help people to stay on topic most the time.

Many larger networks also have decided to stay with simple commenting as well, such as: facebook, flickr, youtube, buddypress., and Digg.com.
@Peter try to keep things as simple as you can, the more features you add, the most complex the solutions to the problem is, the less elegant the overall thing gets. Elegance in solutions is much of an underrated topic, but i think is crucial. Elegance is about beauty of solutions. to me elgeance is not also about what something does but also to what it doesn't do. Its like a museum, the importance of what you see inside is because of what is not on the wall, otherwise it will be a wholesale, is bacuse there are choices. This is even more obvious in social networks, where every network try to do anything, looking all the same...is about what anahita don't do that make it so special...I love anahita, such a beauty!
