Two proposals!

Man, I've been posting a lot.

First one is in regards to FAQ 92 again. I just discovered that if you go back and edit a post that was backdated, and disable the backdating option, it will start to appear on Friends pages and data feeds. However, while it will retain the backdated timestamp, it will appear in the order it was posted.

3:30 - Entry 1
3:45 - Entry 2, backdated to 2:30
4:00 - Entry 3

These will appear like so...

Entry 2 - 2:30
Entry 1 - 3:45
Entry 3 - 4:00

If I disable backdating on entry 2, they will appear like this...

Entry 1 - 3:45
Entry 2 - 2:30
Entry 3 - 4:00

The upshot is that the backdated post will then start to appear as expected.

The second proposal, and this is just me throwing it out there... is that we don't seem to have a FAQ about editinfo.bml. This means that when I want to tell a user how to disable the display of their email address, for instance, I need to spell it out. That's not a big deal, but it seems like we could have a FAQ. There's probably a Good Reason for this, so feel free to tell me to buzz off :)

    Sophie mentioned on IRC that there is a section of FAQ 72 that explicitly states a preview button is available for comments. This hasn't been true…

    The new comment screening feature (see news) isn't really documented at all, and we'll be receiving a very good portion of support…
