I set my preferences so that I would be notified if there was any action in a thread to which I had already contributed. But (1) Others may not have set this preference, and (2) there is no preference offered to be notifed of any new conversation or new turn in a conversation to which I have not contributed.

FaceBook handle this by allowing you to "tag" people in your contributions, ensuring that they are notified about the comment and encouraged to respond.

I notice also, that when one includes a video in the space provided, then the entire thread moves to vimeo.com irreversibly. I don't know if this is what was intended.

Where is this happening? I need to see an example in order to fix it.

Regarding being notified of new conversations. Would you prefer an email for each new conversation, or would you prefer a digest at the end of the day that presents the new conversations to you?

I would like to be able to set and reset them, but the widest domain of notifiable events would be "Any contribution on any conversation" - if things got too intense, then I would downgrade and check every day by coming and looking.

On videos: look in the conversation I started on "Vygotsky on concepts" or something.

I suspect people may not realise that anything is happening. The index of conversations shows who initiated a conversation and how long ago, and the number of replies and votes.
Unless you have an excellent memory and remember the number of votes and replies it had last time, you will presume it is old. To find out if anything relevant has been said, you have to go into each conversation and look down to the last turn, at the bottom (not the top) of the page.
It would be better if the index said who last spoke and when, and the conversation itself showed the last words first. The way you know if and when there has been any action and can quickly see if you find it interesting.

I am working on this ... unclear to me why this is happening at the moment.

Agreed. I think that would provide more useful information. This will go on the to-do list.

Some changes have been made such that now, when you look at the conversations, you see who spoke last and how long ago.

It is not uniformly doing so at the moment though Etienne.

I do see a bug – while it's getting the time of the last update right, in some cases it's not displaying the correct author. But what do you mean, Andy, but it not "uniformly doing so?"

Etienne, the background and basic styles for xlchc.org are beautiful and functional, but with all due praise and apologies for sexist stereotypes to follow: could you consult a female friend perhaps on the selection of colours for the various button designs. The colours are mostly rather unattractive and the text sometimes illegible. :) You're doing a wonderful job though and we all appreciate it.

You don't like my aesthetic touch?!?!!

Etienne, colours can wait, but put a colour check on your to do list somewhere

I like the colors so far ... but it's a Mondrian esthetic, I guess. Except for the Nautilus. Maybe you could re-size that image so we get the whole spiral on the home page? and maybe then sprinkle little baby nautiluses around to add a softer touch? (But I'd ask for a vote on this last suggestion.)
