I only subscribe to half a dozen feeds, with less than 10 posts per day between them, and here's my workflow...
- Every few days I scan through, read some, and dismiss the ones I'm not interested in
- Some of the feeds post long form articles, so I open them and if they're too long to finish in one sitting, I "mark as unread"
- Next time I open the app, the article that I was halfway through reading is at the top, I finish reading it and move on
Why is this workflow so offensive to you?
[quote="fox"]Yep. the whole mark as unread thing is retarded.
"oh i wanted to read this thing later.. wait fuck there's 500 new articles in this category, where is it???"
I never have 500 articles in a feed, I never even have 50.
You say here (http://tt-rss.org/redmine/issues/817#note-3
) that "mark as unread" is stupid because you can't really unread things... Well I'm not really "unreading" it... I open it, the app thinks open=read, I say hey app, I opened it but I didn't finish reading it, so set it back to "unread" so I can finish reading it later... Why is that so hard for you to understand?
Do you ever open an email, realise that it's too long to finish reading right now, and mark it unread so you can come back to it later? Sure, you can't "un-open" something, but why is marking something "unread" when you haven't finished reading it "retarded"?
Every email client has an easily accessible "mark as unread" function, so I don't think this workflow is unusual for email... why is an rss reader workflow any different?
You included an easily accessible "mark as unread" function in your app for years... you moved it to a menu... people complained, so you react vindictively by removing it from the menu too... what a top bloke!http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.p ... op%20Bloke
If there's no room for the button, and you think it's less important than the other 3 buttons, then sure, put it in the overflow menu. Removing it from the menu too is just spiteful.
Great work fox, way to treat paying customers with the contempt they deserve... "stupid retards" they are, using your app in a way that you don't agree with.
[quote="fox"]Perplexing shit. And yet, people apparently consider it a logical thing to do. Well, not in my fucking app they won't.
Fair enough, I built a server to host tt-rss, paid for the app, I've loved using it and recommended it to others, but I guess it's time to start looking for alternatives.
