The LoHud Yankees Blog

A New York Yankees blog by Chad Jennings and the staff of The Journal News


A message from Jeff the Tech Guy

Posted by: - Posted in Misc on Feb 02, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Hey everybody,

I have talked to the guys and they agreed to let me post on here once in a while to talk about the blog and some of its technical aspects. I have been privileged to be a part of this amazing ride known as the Lohud Yankees Blog for the last three years. I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your fierce loyalty to this blog and your team.

I’m looking forward to seeing how it progresses as we move into a new baseball season. The growth and participation of this community has been nothing short of astonishing. So much so that I have spent many nights keeping an eye on an overloaded server, and trying to stop the blog from crashing. After exhausting many options, we have finally found a host that can scale to the meet the needs of our traffic spikes (excuse while I find some wood to knock on). That is a very nice problem to have. There are very few blogs out there that have 300+ comments on posts … let alone over 1000. You guys should be proud of yourselves.

It is definitely not my intention to fix something that is clearly not broken, but there are a couple things coming down the pike of which I wanted to make you guys aware. I figure now is a good time to test things out and I’ll be looking forward to your feedback. After all, it is your blog.

Threaded commenting
This will definitely change the dynamic of the blog, but it’s something that I think you guys will like. We’ll give you the opportunity to reply to each others comments directly, which should lead to some more interesting and targeted discussions. To see an example of this, check out our friends over at River Ave. Blues.

Facebook Connect/Retweet me
You’ll be able to log in with your facebook account and post under your name. This is an interesting technology I have wanted to experiment with for a while. I’m also going to implement a button that makes it easier to retweet posts on your twitter account.

Audio clips now work on smartphones
You can now listen to audio clips that Sam and Chad post on the iPhone and most web-enabled smartphones. If you want to test this out, navigate your phone over to this link for some audio and some pleasant memories. This still won’t work on a lot of old school flip phones. Time for an upgrade!

Tagging
This is something we got away from a while back, but I have been talking to Chad about getting our tagging game back on.

My brief thoughts on the Yankees
Relax, Johnny Damon is not critical to the success the 2010 NY Yankees.

I know a lot of you guys out there are technology people so I would welcome any and all suggestions regarding WordPress or anything else. My email address is jmarx@lohud.com. I expect I’ll get a lot of email after this post and I promise to read each and every one. I will do my best to respond to each one in a timely fashion.

Now, get back to work!

    Threaded commenting-Great idea, it’s been a long time coming!

    Threaded commenting is a godsend.

    For the technology challeneged among us (ME) what is tagging?

  7. Shame Spencer February 2nd, 2010 at 2:16 pm

    Pat – its when each post comes with what these funny web people call a ‘tag.’ its just a way for the guys to file the posts into categories. Example: a post about Johnny Damon’s destination would be filed under something like: Yankees > Johnny Damon > Free Agent > Rumors

    So if you click the tag “Johnny Damon” all posts JD related will show up. Same goes for if you clicked “free agent” or “Yankees” etc.

  8. Joekuh - P + C's :T-15! February 2nd, 2010 at 2:18 pm

    Great ideas, Tech Guy. Any target date on implementation?

  9. m February 2nd, 2010 at 2:18 pm

    Is that nested posting? It ruins the flow for me because I read through the threads like the great American novel that it is. But this old lady will get used to it. I would never tell you guys how to run your blog. (I do wish, though, you’d post your opinions more, Jeff. The more the merrier!)

    Great work on the blog. I had no idea it was such a huge tech endeavour.

  10. GreenBeret7 February 2nd, 2010 at 2:19 pm

    Personally, I’d rather have registration, a correction button and an ignore button that would not show a particular poster(s) so I didn’t have to pick through their garbage to find something of substance and interest to respond to.

  11. Steve February 2nd, 2010 at 2:20 pm

    I hope with threaded commenting we can finally be able to edit our posts!

  12. pat February 2nd, 2010 at 2:20 pm

    Shame

    Thank you.

  13. SJ44 February 2nd, 2010 at 2:20 pm

    What about registration? Any plans to do it this year? That would end the impersonator nonsense that is often taking place.

  14. vin February 2nd, 2010 at 2:21 pm

    Looking forward to the changes. Not sure I love the thread commenting. It works at RAB, but I kind of like the “stream of consciousness” approach we have here.

  15. Wait till we do it all over Again February 2nd, 2010 at 2:22 pm

    I perosnally would dislike registration. So annoying.

    The imperonators are generally taken care of pretty quickly.

    Thanks for what you do. And making sure we didn’t crash during some wild LoHud nights and the party known as GTLU :-)

    I dislike thread commenting more than I dislike thread jumping! I too appreciate the stream of consciousness approach and the flow it brings. It’s the one thing I loved about the NY Times and a reason that I ended up here. I believe you miss out if you don’t get to see what everyone is saying about everything.

    :(

  22. Jeff Marx February 2nd, 2010 at 2:25 pm

    Registration is a topic that is on the table and we are looking into it. That is about all I can say about that for now. Although Facebook Connect is a good way to secure your identity, so you can’t be impersonated.

  23. Shame Spencer February 2nd, 2010 at 2:26 pm

    m – it may not have to be formatted that way. It could be formatted where the posts still flow consecutively as they do now.

    The replies to threads could be positioned under the thread people are specifically replying to and could then be followed by a new thread, still allowing people to view every comment without clicking around. I tend to think of blogs like the Huffington Post or something as an ideal format for comments. It doesnt break up the flow of conversation, doesnt require (like IMDB) the neccessity of clicking every reply to view its content, and still shows all of the comments in the order that they are posted.

  24. Wait till we do it all over Again February 2nd, 2010 at 2:26 pm

    trisha-You do get to see what everybody is saying about everything, just in an organized way.

  25. Uncle Ellsworth (Expert textpert choking smokers, don't you think the joker laughs at you) February 2nd, 2010 at 2:27 pm

    Thanks Jeff but what about
    A link to the new thread at the bottom of the current thread??

  26. CountryClub February 2nd, 2010 at 2:27 pm

    Threaded commenting!! Not only will things be more orderly, but it allows people to skip over little conversations that they have no interest in.

  27. Erin February 2nd, 2010 at 2:27 pm

    Uncle E, did you see the Oscar nominations this morning???

  28. Wait till we do it all over Again February 2nd, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    Take a look at the RAB link for a good diea of how the threads will look. It’s really not that bad.

  29. Wait till we do it all over Again February 2nd, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    diea is obviously idea.

  30. trisha - OPPC forever - (new lucky picture from last day at the old Stadium) BRING ON THE GHOSTS! February 2nd, 2010 at 2:28 pm

  32. Wave Your Hat February 2nd, 2010 at 2:32 pm

    Just my two cents but I don’t like threaded commenting. Makes it very hard to carry on two arguments at once and add the unrelated snarky comment from time to time!

  33. Jeff Marx February 2nd, 2010 at 2:32 pm

    I know opinions will be divided over the comment threading. We’re gonna give it a shot sometime next week. If a majority of the people don’t like it, we can always take it down. But I think you guys will like it.

  34. Rich in NJ February 2nd, 2010 at 2:33 pm

    I think a log in system would help.

  35. Wait till we do it all over Again February 2nd, 2010 at 2:33 pm

    Wave Your Hat-Believe me, I go on RAB a decent amount too. It’s very easy to get snarky with threaded commenting.

    A better term might be “nested” commenting if they’re going with the RAB format.

  36. trisha - OPPC forever - (new lucky picture from last day at the old Stadium) BRING ON THE GHOSTS! February 2nd, 2010 at 2:34 pm

    I THINK I get it. So how would it differ from what we have right now? Just in that when someone responded to your particular post it would come in under yours and the rest would just line up like they do now?

  37. pat February 2nd, 2010 at 2:35 pm

    Jeff

    Can you review filtered words and make sure all are necessary.

    I have written eloquent responses that have been lost forever and I can’t figure out why for the life of me.

    Oh well forget it then! If you can’t do all of that, it’s not for me.

  40. Rich in NJ February 2nd, 2010 at 2:36 pm

    I think the RAB format is very hard to follow.

  41. Wave Your Hat February 2nd, 2010 at 2:36 pm

    Jeff, as long as you’re here, is there a Lohud site optimized for mobile browsing?

  42. Wait till we do it all over Again February 2nd, 2010 at 2:36 pm

    trisha-Yes, except you’ll be able to discuss specific things better, and not have to search the blog for a response to your post. It’s organized much better.

  43. Shame Spencer February 2nd, 2010 at 2:37 pm

    trisha – exactly.

  44. Jeff Marx February 2nd, 2010 at 2:37 pm

    Here is more information on tagging

  45. Pam B February 2nd, 2010 at 2:37 pm

    Thanks for your post–it is interesting to hear about the blog from this perspective. I think the threading will be great, and thanks for the workable audio links for my iPhone! It is more convenient for me to listen to audio on the go, than on my laptop. Just listening to Arod now–it works!

  46. trisha - OPPC forever - (new lucky picture from last day at the old Stadium) BRING ON THE GHOSTS! February 2nd, 2010 at 2:38 pm

    Jeff, is there a way that we can go back a screen and recapture our posts (the way we used to be able to do) if for some reason they get caught in the censor? I agree with Pat. It’s very frustrating to write a long and thought-out post only to lose it because the censor picks up some forbidden word of which we are unaware. At least in the past we could go back a screen and try to figure out the offending word(s).

  47. Jeff Marx February 2nd, 2010 at 2:39 pm

    @Wave Are you talking about the blog or the main site?

  48. Doreen February 2nd, 2010 at 2:39 pm

    Oh, shucks. Repost:

    Sometimes it is a welcome break to a tiresome discussion when I see the new thread arrow (thanks, Rishi, and others more recently). More times than not I’m the last poster on a thread (or so it seems) and it’s so annoying that people have moved on, but ya go with the flow. If my post was in response to a particular person, I prefer to direct that person back a thread; if I see that the discussion has moved on, I reluctantly repost; if I don’t feel my reposting would benefit anyone but me, I leave it die in the old post.
    I would have no objection to people redirecting conversation back a thread to a keep a fresh post fresh, but it is tedious going back and forth between threads. No easy answer, but I think Chad & Sam do a good job here.
    I haven’t really weighed in on the guest post of the day. No one can argue that Jeter doesn’t belong among the best Yankees ever. But what is occurring to me as I read is that it appears that no currently active player is can ever hope to be able to replace the top 4 or 5 (Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle, Berra), and I’m wondering if that is fair? Perhaps we can’t answer that. Perhaps that is for the next generation to say. When Jeter finally retires and enters the realm of legend. But man, that he’s in the discussion at all is quite something isn’t it?
    As far as Mariano goes – well, it seems fairly traditional that pitchers are not included in the list of greatest Yankees. Maybe that needs to change. Or maybe we just keep separate lists. It is interesting though that there really haven’t been as many hands-down “best” pitchers who were Yankees, have there?

  49. Shame Spencer February 2nd, 2010 at 2:39 pm

    Rich – on LoHud, the white/blue separation is a bit more stark and should be easier to follow than the RAB format. On RAB for some reason they chose a light blue and white which for someone as blind as me makes life difficult. But the indentations and the color differences should make it very easy to follow here.

  50. Rich in NJ February 2nd, 2010 at 2:41 pm

    btw, Jeff you look a little like y Michael Imperioli in that picture.

  51. Wave Your Hat February 2nd, 2010 at 2:42 pm

    Jeff-

    The blog – I see you do it for the main site but I haven’t found one for the Yankee Blog.

  52. wsr February 2nd, 2010 at 2:43 pm

    the only downside to the threaded comments is that they become difficult with the number of comments this blog typically gets. if you are trying to follow multiple conversations, you may have to jump from to top of the page to the bottom, which is tough with 1000 comments. also, how will this work with the mobile version? i just envision this being a pain on a phone.

  53. Wait till we do it all over Again February 2nd, 2010 at 2:43 pm

    Well, you need to go to the bottom of the page anyway to read the newest post, don’t you?

  54. Jeff Marx February 2nd, 2010 at 2:44 pm

    @Trisha .. I’ll look into that, but I don’t think so. I believe the latest version of wordpress(The blogging software this thing runs on) blocks that ability because it presents a security risk.

  55. Jeff Marx February 2nd, 2010 at 2:46 pm

    @Wave what kind of device are you using? The blog should automatically reformat itself when you visit it on a mobile device.

  56. Rich in NJ February 2nd, 2010 at 2:46 pm

    The best software I have seen is at NYYFans.

  57. Ninja Burglar February 2nd, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    I would love to see registration.

  58. Jeff Marx February 2nd, 2010 at 2:48 pm

    And yeah .. I hear that Molitsante/Michael Imperioli thing all the time. I love that show and miss it badly!

  59. Pat M. February 2nd, 2010 at 2:51 pm

    Tricia, Since I’ve already invested on the Yanks winning 100 games, put me in for 101….The censor issue is a a pain in the arse

  60. Patrick February 2nd, 2010 at 2:52 pm

    Jeff thanks for the post, sounds like you guys are working hard.

    Good job on the mobile version of the blog, it works well.

  61. GreenBeret7 February 2nd, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    It would help many, like Pat’s issue with filtered words if the screen would tell us which word or phrase the filter finds objectionable without deleting the entire post..just hi-lite the offending word so it can be changed. Much like spell-check does.

  62. Doreen February 2nd, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    Jeff -

    Thanks for this information. You do a fantastic job and we’d be nowhere without you and your team.

    I tried reading over at RAB and their threaded or nested commentary. I agree with mel – it was difficult for me to follow. But, if the majority of you like it, I guess this old dog is gonna have to learn a new trick! I’m adaptable, at least I’d like to think so! :)

  63. bj February 2nd, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    Jeff,

    Could we have a refresh button at the bottom or would it be possible for it to refresh its self?

  64. sab February 2nd, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    Jeff,

    Did you ever see the tech guy skits on SNL with Jimmy Fallon as the tech guy? I used to love them because the character that Fallon played was so realistic to the tech guys I usually dealt with and I’m sure the “dummies” that the tech guys used to think we were (and still do). How realistic were those skits (if you saw them)?

  65. trisha - OPPC forever - (new lucky picture from last day at the old Stadium) BRING ON THE GHOSTS! February 2nd, 2010 at 2:55 pm

    Thanks Jeff. It drove me crazy on Saturday because I lost an entire post. I couldn’t figure out what the heck I said in it that caused it to get caught. So just for giggles I reconstructed it and went to an old thread and did the line-by-line trick. Well when I came to the offending word, I couldn’t figure out what the heck the problem was since no elision with the word before or word later spelled anything vulgar!

    The astute posters here immediately figured it out for me. It was the screenname of a real loser troll poster from last season. I am very happy to give up that word if it means we never have to see that person again!

  68. bj February 2nd, 2010 at 2:59 pm

    Jeff,

    Another thing, could an entry be posted when a new main topic is posted or again, something at the bottom near the Leave a Reply so that we know when something new has been posted by Chad, Sam and other>

  69. Jeff Marx February 2nd, 2010 at 2:59 pm

    @sab not big fan of SNL, but I know the stereotype. Yes, it’s accurate for most of the tech guys I have met. No, it does not fit my persona at all. I actually come from a communications background, and have become a “tech guy”.

    Honestly, I don’t comment quite as often as I’d like to on this blog because there is no threaded posting. Having to hit refresh and scroll to find someone who replied to your post is eternally frustrating. Yeah to threaded posting!

  73. trisha - OPPC forever - (new lucky picture from last day at the old Stadium) BRING ON THE GHOSTS! February 2nd, 2010 at 3:02 pm

    GB, that’s a GREAT idea. I’ve seen that on other sites. Jeff, any chance we could have that, where the censor would automatically highlight the offending word?

    Pat M – got it. I tend to go with whatever comes to me (kind of like a 6th sense way of doing it) and seriously I’m torn between the numbers 101, 105 and 107. I’ll know it when it happens.

    ;)

  75. trisha - OPPC forever - (new lucky picture from last day at the old Stadium) BRING ON THE GHOSTS! February 2nd, 2010 at 3:03 pm

    Jeff, any shot of banning by IP address? That seems like the most sane way to keep out trolls and imposters.

  79. stanzy February 2nd, 2010 at 3:08 pm

    Not a big fan of threaded commenting. The site I’m “the tech guy” for (techdirt.com) has threaded comments as a user preference, so you can choose to view them threaded or not. My setting is not. Making it an option would be nice.

    A nice comment feature that might help to keep comment threads from crossing multiple posts would be comment email notification. When you leave a comment, you can check a box requesting an email when someone else comments on the same post. That way, you know if someone replies to your comment. (Should probably be limited to registered users, to avoid spam issues.)

    I know some people really want user registration. I sent an email to Pete way back about registration. Have to be careful about how you implement it. Forcing registration for commenting tends to lead to fewer comments. Techdirt has user registration, but it’s optional, and we identify comments from registered users — which helps reduce the imposter issue.

    One thing I’d like is the option to view the blog normally on my iPhone, instead of in the light mobile format. I really don’t like the mobile format.

    Wouldn’t threaded commenting take away from the randomness of postings??

    Looks Good Uncle E. I’m not on the Avatar bandwagon, but I know it’s going to win. I agree with all of your acting picks-I thought George Clooney had more of a shot, but he’s been losing to Jeff Bridges the entire awards season, so I’m going with Bridges as my pick. The only one I disagree with is Adapted Screenplay-I think that’s going to Up in the Air.

    “Woah, level of discourse alert! Let’s not refer to someone as a ‘loser’, please!”

    Generic. Generic. Noun used as an adjective to describe disruptive trolls.

    Always as a topic of discussion, never directed at a comment made by someone.

    One thing that makes comparison of teams/players long and tedious is the inability only post one link at a time, and the statement that comes with a multiple link post is ineffective. It never gets the ok. Not sure what the exact statement is.

    “Your comment is awaiting moderation” It never gets “moderated”. It just disappears.

    “A-Rod benefited from the newer, healthier atmosphere in the Yankee clubhouse. Joe Torre, Jason Giambi and Mike Mussina were gone, taking with them their antipathy for A-Rod.”

    Antipathy is a strong word. I’m feeling less sorry for Mussina and Giambi not getting a ring if they were contributing to the problem. :neutral:

    Mussina had problems with Rodriguez mostly because of errors and he wasn’t one to keep is displeasure a secret, either on the field or in the media. Of course, he never mentioned the number of tomes Roriguez bat would bail out a less than stellar pitching performance. Giambi is the one that told Verducci about the private conversation that Rodriguez had with Torre. I don’t miss either player and hardly care that they missed out on a ring. I’d say that they were as much or more to blame than Rodriguez for the 2002-2009 faiures.

    As long as we are posting technical frustrations, sometimes when I submit a comment I get a “looks like that’s a duplicate comment” (or words to that effect) response, and it gets caught by the filter, when I never posted the comment before.

    When I get that response to a comment it’s hopeless, I can try to change the comment around some but I can never get it past the filter.

    Pinning “2002-2008 failure” on any players is somewhat harsh. If anything, Mussina and Giambi’s contribution to the club’s failure to go all the way was not for lack of effort.

    Maybe more post prime declining skills on their part. Mostly, I believe, the configuration of squads that lacked the solid balance of starting pitching, youth, speed and experience of last year’s, and apparently this year’s squad.

    The failure to advance deep in the post season was frustrating and Mussina and Giambi were supposedly stars brought in to add finesse and thump. So they could be said to carry some of the blame for not getting over the hump.

    ________________________________________

    You got that right. But IIRC, game 4 in 2004 got rained out that Friday night, allowing for Pedro and Schilling to rest up and pitch again.

    Had a bad feeling about that rainout. But who would have thunk going down four in a row.

    There was also some thing about a pinch runner that couldn’t be stopped…
    and now we now know about the MannyOrtiz Nectar.

    Yes to threaded comments! I rarely read the comments and even more rarely post because wading through the large amounts of off topic posts and posts carried over from the previous threads is annoying. It is too difficult to discuss a specific topic or even just the topic of the post with all the other noise that goes on. These changes will make it easier for people who are in the “in crowd” to participate. As it stands now, to have any meaningful discussion, you need to spend too much time following the comments.

    I agree with no fixing something if it isn’t broken. But everything you listed is absolutely great. And LONG overdue. Thank you.

    Here’s all the miscellaneous yankee stuff on twitter. It posts everything-news, press releses, fan chatter-and updates constantly.

    And you don’t have to be on twitter to read them:

    My biggest gripe about this site, is that I can’t read an entire article through an RSS reader, such as google reader. I have to click on the heading to open the lohud web page, which is a major annoyance mostly because my work blocks many of the ads/prohibited linking sites on your page and brings up about 30 pop-ups before i can read the article. This changed sometime in the last year – you used to be able to read an entire article – there was no ‘jump’, or if there was it was only on very long articles. Please change it back!!!

    They take the Serie Caribe serious in those parts. I lived next to the University Stadium in Caracas, Venezuela for several years, and it gets raucus there.

    The team that plays there, Leones de Caracas are in this year’s series. They are the Yankees of Venezuela. The rivalry with their nemesis, Navegantes de Magallanes, rivals that of the Yankees and Red Sox.

    Could never get to sleep during one of those games. Amidst the hum of the stadium, a lion would roar if the Leones hit a home run. Enough to stir even the deepest sleeper.

    The fandom really gets into the games, too. You end up wearing the wares from the concession stands.

    Its worth taking a looksee at a game or two, though. Almost the energy of the Bronx Zoo (OYS bleachers) along with good pitching and decent fielding.

    i checked out the threaded commenting at RAB.

    i don’t like it at first glance because i find the lohud chronological commenting much easier to follow.

    as a disclaimer, i really have little interest in RAB because i’ve never liked what ben k has to say. i remember first butting heads with him over bernie williams and nothing i’ve read since has changed my opinion about his inexperience with baseball.

    there is a vast gap between the two sites. i wouldn’t be copying too much.

    lohud yankees blog has caught lightening in a bottle.

    i’d be careful what i change, and i certainly wouldn’t look at less successful blogs to copy their format.

    I’m cool with registration; after reading about all the grief from some of the old heads here (my first day posting here – or anywhere for that matter).

    Either way, I’m good.
