Socoder -> Off Topic -> Worklogs?

Worklogs?


The Issue

Actual showcases and threads work drastically differently.

Threads are a series of posts, whilst Showcases/etc are instead a single post, and then a lot of "Comments" (which aren't Posts, btw!) that link directly to that post. (Whereas Posts tend to link to either a Thread or a Showcase/Blog/Article Area)

I can't turn a whole thread into a showcase, or vice versa, because... Well, I might've rewritten things, but I pretty much left the database as it was!!

A Solution?

But you can generate showcases from previously created posts..

Find the post you'd like to transfer to the showcase, click Edit, give it a title (if you don't give it a title, it silently fails!) then look for the dropdown that says "Display As", and select a showcase area you'd like it to show up in.

If you then navigate to the Showcase section you chose, you'll see the post listed as if it were a showcase, and can even post comments to it.
The post also switches to "Showcase Style" within the thread.

It won't, however, appear on the frontpage.

If this is workable, then let me know, and I'll create a new "Worklogs" section that may even pop up on the frontpage under the Showcase area.
.. Or something!??
I dunno, really.

Discuss!!

Back to thinking about this again.
I'm currently considering that the way my AGameAWeek thread works, is probably good enough, maybe just make a Worklogs forum section specifically for them...

I've also thought about "Developer Only" threads, but those would make for very boring threads, if it's only ever one person replying to themselves, over and over again!
..
I think.

I'm not sure.

Any thoughts?!?
