Howdy, I really love this feature, but there’s one thing missing from it: It needs a “back” button of some sort. I often find myself clicking on roll the dice too quickly and there’s no way to go back and I miss out on really nice projects I’d like to see.

It should be fairly easy for you guys to keep a running memory of 3-4 of the last projects displayed and offer a way to go back.

Cheers!

Continue the good work!

Hello, I’m glad you like it. Going back wouldn’t be as simple as it seems because system would have to remember history for each member. It’s not the top priority right now. I suggest you don’t click on the button that fast in the meantime ;)

Hi Martin!

Thanks for the reply, but being a software programmer, I have a hard time believing your explanation. Couldn’t the site simply store the last 2-3 “roll the dice” results into a cookie on the client side and thus, free the server from having the store that information?

Anyways, if it’s not a priority, it’s not a priority!

Oh well

Cheers

Hi Fish, yes technically I’d store that info in the session that is tied to cookie.

Rivergirl…it’s on the home page towards the top where it displays the projects. Top right corner of that display.

Rivergirl..go to the top of any page and click on homepage by the Lumberjocks logo. On the home page when it opens you’ll see the display of “We love to work wood” with one project displayed and a few others as thumbnails. Top right corner of this applet? will be the “roll the dice” button.
Hope that helps. It is a pretty cool feature. You’ll see older projects that won’t be on the pulse page.

I would agree with adding the back button to this feature.
Any chance of revisiting this option?

I’m sorry, but that isn’t likely to happen.
