Redirect to Journal on Logout or Login

The current behaviour when a user logs out of IJ is that they click the Log Out button, then they are redirected to a logout page that provides them with options for logging in or other things to do. Additionally, when logging in with an account, the user is redirected to a log in page with next steps. It's a slight inconvenience when attempting to switch accounts on, for example, a mobile device, while viewing a journal entry. In those cases, you have to log out, go to the logout page, log in with the new account, go to the logged in page, hit the back button three times, and then refresh the page to get back to where you were. It would be more convenient in this scenario for a user to click Log Out, then to be brought back to the same page they were on with their session expired, similar to how Dreamwidth handles log out events. Then when they log in with their new account on the same page, they are brought back right away to the same page without having to deal with the browser back button or refreshing the page manually.

Embedding YouTube Videos

I wish we could use the new iframe embedding for YouTube. When I crosspost, the videos won't cross-post so I have to manually edit the entry, add the embed tag, and gather the "Old embed code" for youtube.

I'm happy I can at least do that though, but it would be nice at some point to update that!

So, this might only be more applicable to roleplayers who list all their owned journals in their cdj etc but when you do 'lost username' you just get them as a list. Perhaps it's possible to have it sent with the code? It would make things a lot easier...

I get really really REALLY tired of having to think of a new journal name or add silly little _ in at the beginning/middle/end of mine because I go to create one and it's been 'deleted/purged'. I understand those used to be journals, but if they were deleted and purged then chances are they haven't been used in eons or something, and really I don't think I should have to pay to rename a journal just so I can use a name someone lost or didn't want anymore. It's a tad frustrating, and more than a little unfair.

Is there any way this can be done away with?

I was thinking about some ideas that may improve IJ a little, here they are:


  • A top 5, like Scribbld's one, this mean display on the main page for a month the top 5 journals/RP's/General asylums selected by the users in an asylum like this. There users can suggest a journal/RP/General asylum and the one that get more votes or something will be displayed in the main page for a month.
    I think this would be good to involve users on IJ and to promote those asylums etc.

  • Change the site icons: IJ site icons makes the whole site look dated, months ago I found Simple Icons/Images Skin and just by changing those icons the site looks more appealing, I don't know how complicate this might be to implement but aesthetically I think it would improve IJ a lot.
    For more examples of how this icons look click here )
    The icons used are Fugue icons and Silk icons, both to be used require a link back somewhere on the site.

  • Opal (Libra OSWD) layout: The Opal (Libra OSWD) layout available on IJ don't let us to modify the CSS, including free and paid accounts, since we have this layout here I think the code might be fixed or updated.

How can IJ improve?

Here's a good question for you so we know what us users are looking for:

• What can IJ do to improve its site/service/support/features?
• How do you think it compares to Dreamwidth, LiveJournal, and other blogging sites?
• What do you like most about IJ? how about the least?


Please explain your answers.

Cross-posting/Importing/Exporting

I'd love to see the idea that Dreamwidth has with the cross-posting to LJ or IJ get integrated into IJ; I think it'd keep more people active here.

I also really like how you can import entries/settings from other journals/sites.

Would this be something that IJ could do?

(P.S. Does anyone still read this that has the ability to program such things?)

I'm not sure how the interest thing works but is it possible to allow interests of more than four words?

Removing usernames from friend-list

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before and I'm not sure if this is possible. If so, please let me know.

But I do recall back on Greatestjournal, we were allowed to remove friends completely off the flist, even when they didn't remove you or completely abandoned their journals.

I really hate seeing a whole slew of usernames I've unfriended listed under "friend of".

I think you should be given the option to keep a comment screened instead of having to rescreen it after you've commented to it.
