feature suggestion

I have myself in my friends list - I like seeing my own thoughts in the context of friends; it makes my name jump out in bold whenever it occurs on lj.

However, I don't like the fact that when I write a post with iJournal, this causes the friends notification to immediately come up. Is there any possibility of putting an option to 'ignore my posts in checking for friends updates'?

Also, Audion 3 now offers the ability to get more detailed track information, like the artist. Any chance of a quick little bump to support this?

No. The check for friends update feature is built into LiveJournal; to cut down on server load it justr eturns whether your friends have changed pages; iJournal itself doesn't do any checking of who those friends are, and it shouldn't.

You might want to bring this up with the LiveJournal developers, who could actually change things to work that way (not that I think they'd want to, mind you).

Ah. I wasn't sure whether the client or the server handled the check for friends update. Now I know; I agree that iJ shouldn't be hammering the server to find out just who did the update.

Actually, now that I think of it, it would be possible to reset the friends checker immediately after posting and then receiving a hit on changed friends; of course, this risks missing another friend's update if it comes within that interval (I believe it's 60 seconds, which is probably short enough to make this not a big problem).

Re: friends
Or even:

1. user hits 'submit'
2. iJ asks the server to check friends
3. send post
4. iJ changes its internal last friends check time to right after it gets the acknowledgement of a successful posting

There's probably still the tiny risk of missing a friends post, but if your friends post that frequently, you'll surely get another notification soon and see it.

Re: friends
The checkfriends mode supports a mask argument which limits the checking to only selected groups.

The capability is on the server side. If iJournal implemented this option, then you could create a group containing everybody but you, and check on it.
