Nicole Alderman wrote:First time I've gotten this (I never signed up, but it looks like Paul having it sent out to everyone is working--or at least it worked for me). All in all, I liked it, especially knowing what posts I got "likes" on, as this is rather difficult information to find out. I do wish, however, that the links to the "liked" posts contained the information about the threads. For example, instead of saying "http://permies.com//forums/posts/preList/0/407328", it'd be nice if it said, "http://permies.com/t/52406/cascadia/Cascadia-Bloggers-Websites-Facebooks-Project#433240." The 12 threads above the "apple" and "like" posts were listed in the latter format, so I could tell what they were about before clicking, but not so with the "apple" and "like" posts. I don't know if it could be changed or not, but it would be nice!

*Update* I found the link in the email, but is there an easy way to navigate to that page without having that email link? I would find it easiest to find under the "My Profile" tab.

Is there some sort of competition on getting Daily-ish" posts out, because my inbox is stacked full of them? I prefer a few good posts over mediocre posts every day.
Aly Sanchez wrote:I like it! One issue I have though is that I follow the link, see something cool, want to reply, need to log in, log in, then get shuttled to the main page, and can't find the thread again. Weekly is about right for frequency for my preferences.
Ty Morrison wrote:The Daily-ish is still my favorite. I know that there are bound to be links to things I don't normally think about, which keeps me 'diverse' which is something I like. There are many competitors but the "Permies" brand rings true for me. Some of the others get sent straight to the waste-can being too much one thing or another. The digest is a little redundant to me, but still serves to prompt me to read it, as I do not seem to follow the mainstream, even for the "Permies" brand, which is not too surprising. Doesn't hurt to see it though, as I may want to dive deeper into a thread that I blew-off in the Daily-ish.
Geoff Lawton seems to be doing similar with the Friday Five. Another 'brand' I follow. Some of the others are too purple, beginner oriented or redneck for me. Keep up the good work.
Chad Sentman wrote:I'm curious how the results are determined. If I say update me every 365 days, will I get the top 12 posts for that year? Or are they the top 12 posts for one day out of 365?
What is the criteria for being the "top" threads? Views? Replies? Apples? Thumbs up? Exclamation points? Some combination that reflects overall engagement?
