Spin that spinbox

What is this?

Do you remember this guy? In my previous blog post I asked the KDE community what you thought it was, and after many good guesses Kmetamorphosis finally nailed the answer: it’s for voting on questions in KDialogue.

Another person commented that “if it looks like a spinbox, it acts like a spinbox then probably it’s a spinbox. Only it doesn’t apear to be spinning”. Right, I guess we can call it a spinbox. If you’re the type who likes to spin spinboxes, I have good news for you – the first KDialogue opened recently, which means that you can spin to your heart’s content¹ over in the KDialogue forum!

Don’t forget to take the opportunity to ask Jonathan Riddell one question or four – the more spinboxes, the better right? As someone said, there are no stupid questions (as long as they follow the rules) – only good ones and less good ones. And that decision is in your hands. 😉

KDialogueTake me to the first KDialogue now »


¹ You can only vote on each question once, though.

    I had a go using this, the voting buttons worked fine.

    Towards the bottom of the page there’s an option to sort the messages by either:

    * Author
    * Post time
    * Subject

    Is it possible to sort by votes? I expect the person being “interviewed” would want to use such an option to pick the popular questions.

    We (the forum team) will be the ones to pick out the questions, and it’s just a matter of a simple database query. Anyway, it can still be useful to users; I’ll ask the other team members what they think about such a feature.

    Edit: Apparently it wasn’t too easy to implement, but if a lot of users want it we can see if we can do something. Please post a topic in Feedback & Questions.
