The Volume of Interactions underwent a few improvements today:
Comments Listing and Top Commentors
I've come to realize that the interactivity of a blog is largely due to the ability of its visitors to voice their opinion over any particular posting. This is part of the culture that has made distributed nano-publishing the success that it is: if you have something to say, blogs (and the commenting engine included in many of them) allow you to say it.
Towards this end, i've installed a comments listing engine that displays the most recently commented entries on the VOI. Also, i've provided a simple count-mechanism to display the top commentors for the VOI (number of comments by a particular commentor is in brackets). This is my way of saying "THANK YOU" to those who have taken the time to frequent the VOI and make their opinions known here - if you have a blog of your own and you've filled in your website URL during the commenting process, a convenient link will be provided back to your blog. If you don't have a blog, i've made it easier for others to contact you through a [mailto:] link to your email address.
The "Comments" section of the VOI can be found near the bottom of the right hand links bar. Check it out.
Email to a friend, Email this posting to a friend
This has been included to make it easier for you to recommend particular articles appearing in the VOI to your friends. This is a facility i myself have wished for during my visit to many blogs - i've often found interesting content that i want to share with friends. But i've found it tedious to have to open my email client or log into Hotmail just to send an email recommending the content.
No records will be kept of any email address used in this facility (that's a promise, Tubs!).
Many thanks to all for the support and kind consideration.
