Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And to make a concrete suggestion, sometimes it troubles me that useful discussions seem to scroll out of sight too quickly. Perhaps the daily diary could be reduced in frequency a bit in order to allow longer discussions?

Do you mean the "recent diaries" box? You can change the number of displayed diaries from your user preferences.

No, I didn't really mean "scroll." An interesting discussion in Tuesday's open diary rarely continues into Wednesday because there are new discussions on Wednesday. I'm suggesting that maybe they could come every other day.

A problem with that would be that if you get a few hundred replies then it takes a long time for the page to load...

In light of our way of value discussion, maybe the it would be better to have a longer rec list, with the rec rate being influenced by time since last comment.

(Before anyone gets their hopes up, this would probably mena rewriting some SCOOP code and I doubt there is enough interest for that. Just trying out the ideas.)
