Site functionality/bug open chat

Hi all,


It's been about one week since the revamp went live and throughout the past week we have been addressing bugs. The major bugs have been addressed at this point; we are still working through some at the moment, but we are preparing for the next phase of site functionality tweaks and development.


Next items on our plate (not in any particular order):

- Artist tags

- Meme section, also planning on building Quiz, Reviews and Poll building tools. Possibly tournaments?

- User points system

- Staff article only/user article only view toggle

- Sort functionality

- Night Mode

- Add posts to a favorites list


With the items mentioned above, if you can provide any input/feedback that would be great, but one of the more glaring items that we are discussing internally is the Sort functionality. We want your input on how you would like this to function.


At the moment the "BEST" sorting method is the default, however we are contemplating on whether we should allow users to determine what the default sort view should be on an account level. We understand many users want to be able to choose their default sort view, but that would undermine the entire point of trying to evolve the site into a curated content platform.


We have two options/ideas that we are floating around and want to see what you guys feel is the better option.


1. Allow users to choose the sort method, but only have it last for one session. As in, the sort will remain what you selected until you leave the site and then revisit. Upon revisit, the default sort method would revert back to BEST.


2. Allow users to choose the sort method and have it remain permanently in that view, until the user changes it again.


I have a strong feeling that #2 is going to be more popular with most of you at first glance, but please take into account that if this happens, there will be less chance for the community to see the top stories, in effect leading to less comments/discussions happening. It would also make the upvoting/downvoting feature less important.


Please provide your feedback below and also add in any other site features you would like to see, as well as bugs that you have discovered.


Thanks!

I come here to look at news, I don't care about what the best post and most commented on post is. I want to see what's new and that should be an option for a sort. I'm not sure what the thinking was to go to a reddit style forum with less emphasis on actual news and more on users, but I think it was a poor decision.

As mentioned above, we are considering reworking the sort functionality. Either way, I don't know if it's really jumping through hoops, it's a single click, but yes, we will make updates so we can find a middle ground/best case solution for all factors and users involved.

I got a bone to pick. Why is it that I see so many posts here with people outright saying they dislike the new site design, yet I make a couple of comments stating the same thing and some were even just in jest and my account gets banned without ANY warning? I've been a member of the AKP community for years and have never had a single issue before. I honestly am not trying to be disrespectful here, but is this how you treat people for having a differing opinion?

There is an option to only see news written by the staff. It's under feed and if you want the latest news choose the new sorting option. I do get where you might get frustrated :/

The default should be SORT: NEW, best is subjective and if articles get voted down you should pay attention and surmise as to why. It was good the way it was and if it ain't broke don't fix it, it's just messed up now. I set it to sort-> new and bookmarked that so for me it's always default.


The user points sound like it has potential but the way it's to be implemented needs explanation, this site had a problem with toxic and mean spirited trolls (they're flops, ugly, I hope they disband etc.) but there were also funny ones as well and I enjoyed reading those comments, they shouldn't be treated the same because it might be edgy, the ones of a sexual nature i.e "I want to do this to so and so" are distasteful.


Also, there should be enforceable guidelines as to what users can post and there are good articles that should be rewarded somehow, MeAnotherself writes particularly good content. I'll finish commenting later but in the long run this site will improve, I must admit not returning as frequently though...

We will be making modifications to the sort functionality, the point of this post was to receive more feedback prior to implementing these changes.


We are open to all forms of opinions and discussions. We aren't outright banning people for having a different viewpoint or trolling within reason. The only difference is that they will need to login now. We are working on a full guide as to best practices for posting stories to the site as well.


This is a new direction for the site, and quite frankly, we're pretty excited with it and we firmly believe it will improve over time. We're glad you still stuck around and hopefully you will be back more frequently once we smooth everything out.

The more recent news should be the first thing you see when you enter the site. And I'm talking about actual news, not posts created by random users. Keep those for the forums, the site is chaos when you have everything on the front page. We are asking for the most logical sort option to be the default setting once you enter the site, please :)

We are monitoring and removing some of those posts, however we will not be removing all of the posts if there is a bit of additional information. This is why the upvoting feature plays a big part of the site and also why the BEST sort feature is something we are prioritizing.

to me it seems like you made this system because the actual content creators are either too lazy to write articles or dont have time. (which you dont realize yet that the current system will take more time eventually.) even if a 2nd or 3rd post has a tiny bit more information in it, it still ends up really messy. you should just merch the posts to one, simple as that.


"... upvoting feature plays a big part of the site and also why the BEST sort feature is something we are prioritizing"

- most ppl are either too lazy to upvote or they just forget about it or they just dont bother). so in the end this will never work out 100% to your liking.

- just because ppl upvote doest mean its quality content.

- having the "best" posts at the top means that ppl will oversee the new content which means they double post and you will have more work

- which also ends up with 2 or more posts to one topic -> its a mess, which will result in the site to be slower eventually and just like in the past you will have to delete everything (I`m here since 2011, so I know what I`m talking about)


I could go even deeper into this, but you guys should do yourselves a favor and just stay with the system before, just with more researched quality content. I can only guess, but I`m guessing you are doing this to contrats yourself from soompi.

Below are answers to your questions.

Our content team is exactly the same as it was before the revamp and they are still publishing at the same rate.


- most ppl are either too lazy to upvote or they just forget about it or they just dont bother). so in the end this will never work out 100% to your liking.


Nothing will ever be 100% but the amount of upvotes is increasing on a daily basis, which means we are heading in the right direction.


- just because ppl upvote doest mean its quality content.


Yes, it doesn't always work out that way, but showing new stories first doesn't always mean its quality content either.


- having the "best" posts at the top means that ppl will oversee the new content which means they double post and you will have more work


We're fine with the extra work. We aren't seeing a lot of double posts at the moment and even if it does start to happen more frequently later on, the best sorting feature along with moderation will help alleviate those issues.


- which also ends up with 2 or more posts to one topic -> its a mess, which will result in the site to be slower eventually and just like in the past you will have to delete everything (I`m here since 2011, so I know what I`m talking about)


There may be more content to filter thru, but more posts doesn't mean the site will be slower, nor do we have to delete any posts. The site still has all of the posts from the previous site/years and there is no difference. It's only a matter of storage, which is infinite as we continuously expand storage space when necessary.

sometimes there's downvoting when there is no content that is incorrect, offensive, or irrelevant. It's just haters hating on certain posts about a group.

That's bound to happen no matter what, but we're hoping the upvote/downvote feature is eventually understood as not actually liking or disliking the content of the story, but more along the lines of the community thinking this is an important story. That is the ultimate end goal.

This is a good idea. We can possibly showcase the most recent stories for a particular artist on the create post page, but that would require the content creator to enter in an artist tag first.

The_Doctor 21 days ago 2

I'm agreeing with 2 as well. I read articles and move on to new items. I don't mind searching out interesting articles to see opinions that have been added since I read it but with the 'best' option I miss new articles that have been posted because I only see old posts.


Besides if you can change the option then after reading the new material you can switch to 'best' to see that option before switching back to 'new' as you leave. With disapearing posts and locked posts it's difficult enoug finding out where you left off last time.

Honestly my main concern is the mobile site. I usually check the news on my phone and your site is impossible to navigate because of all the pop-up ads. I don't mean to seem rude but that's one of the main reasons why I use other news sites cause I can't even read the articles. Have you ever considered making a mobile app?

- to answer your poll - #2. I am a UI/UX designer and this is what you are supposed to do for the users. you have top posts on the side (which are actually top posts because people want to have discussion about them) so why the heck do you need sorting to reset to it every time too? this sounds to me like a dev mistake you do not want to invest any more money into.


-also, you have a huge bug with notifications. I have everything read and i still have 2 sitting near my user account on the top right and there is no way to reset it even if i mark all as read. actually, now it is 3. so unless I physically open the page which is a huge inconvenience when it is just an upvote, I cannot get rid of that notification.


- the fact that users can write articles is the stupidest thing you could do. there is a freaking forum for it. your main page is a damn mess at this point with tiny article previews and a bunch of bold font that actually make reading previews very hard.


overall, what you had before was much MUCH better except for the amount of trolls from unregistered users and that was THE ONLY thing you needed to fix.

I rather like the new site - I just wish those mean-spirited trolls using profanity and constantly trying to start fan wars could be permanently banned after a set number of violations. It's one thing to have varying opinions - quite another to use insults, slurs, profanity and personal attacks constantly.

There is no way in the world I'm ever going to prefer anything other than 'new' as my default sort order. It is the most guaranteed way for people to see new content, by definition. If you leave it to 'best' (which is completely undefined), then if something doesn't hit whatever criteria YOU guy set to mean 'best', then people who can't log in often will be much less likely to see something that get buried by your opaque 'best' criteria. You are completely subverting your intention here. I have figured out a hack to get it to be this way, by setting sort order to new, then copying the URL with the correct sort order url paramters in it to be my AllKPop bookmark. It gets lost when navigating around the site, but it's something that helps with the initial annoyance for now.


Bugs: The notification system is seriously buggy. There are functions that simply don't work, like 'delete'. There is a notification in my list from 7 days ago that refuses to go away. I mark it as read, delete it, then refresh notifications and it's back again, marked as unread. It also doesn't go to the comment when I click on it, but just goes to the article itself. Sometimes I'll get one that goes back to the home page. If that's from a comment or conversation that has been deleted, then the notification should be removed, too.


I'd still like a way to change my user name, though if you're not bringing back the old comments, I may just wind up creating a new account; please advise if that's going to happen or not.

The best sort is partly for that purpose. For users who don’t login frequently to discover the top stories of the day. Although many want the traditional new sort order, the site is no longer a traditional news site, so our algorithms are determining the best stories based on a number of factors. The data will speak for itself in terms of which method becomes the default.


Notification bugs should be resolved.


As for username changes that is not something on the roadmap

What about recovery of old comments?


That your criteria for 'best' is totally opaque to the users - and also not configurable - is my big problem with it. I'd rather have control, and the only way to do that is to set it to 'new'.

Old comments will not be recovered as it was on the spot.im platform. The best criteria is based off of a number of factors, including things such as votes, views, comments, shares, freshness, velocity.


We will continuously optimize this And possibly later on customize it further for individual preferences. We have lots of ideas, but we are testing things as we move along.


I understand your concern which is why we will be providing options which allow for a greater degree of control

this whole ↓/↑ would be great if community was mature enough not to abuse the system.

This new layout was IMHO, a waste of time and ressources. No disrespect to whoever created it or whomever happens to be behind that overhaul simply no one comes on here expecting to get somewhat of a social-media-like experience. It's quite matter of factly in that sense, we simply care about the news featured on the site—and eventually for some, to exchange their respective opinions, ideas and ideals in the comment tread. Why fix something that wasn't even broken in the first place? While it very well could've been tweaked here an there, altered stylistically, the platform as whole needn't to go through such a drastic alteration—especially considering the fact that said alteration didn't make it any better than it already was, but rather quite the contrary. At least that's how I personally feel— but then again, that's just me.

Also, I've noticed that ever since the layout overhaul, the level and degree of overall engament on the platform has significantly dropped. I find it all to be rather redundant to be completely honest. It's pushed me to pay more attention to Pann-Choa, NB, and Soompi, but hey, what can you do.

None taken and thanks for the feedback. We are working to smooth things out and create a better site and experience in the long run, I think it’s too soon to make judgements on how these changes are/will affect the site. At the moment however, we are seeing traffic numbers up, but engagement levels seem to be down because we no longer allow anonymous posting. Engagement will come over time as more users create accounts, but we understand we need to build out the core functions and create a better experience. It won’t happen overnight, but this is a long term vision and plan for us and we thank everyone for their patience

https://www.google.com/search?q=G-Dragon+site:www.allkpop.com/article/&tbs=qdr:y

The above URL will use GOOGLE Search for "G-Dragon" based AKP ARTICLES, for 1 Year Duration.

And then, you can change to a "CUSTOM RANGE" (date setting), instead of the 1 Year Duration.

In my view, this would be your best current choice. You can create a 'shortcut' for the above URL.

AKP has also stated that an 'ARTIST TAG' ARTICLES Listing feature will happen soon too.

But you are correct that it is NOT possible to 'skip backwards' in a 'Page Number' Listed manner.

Hopefully, @johnny (AKP) will address your concern.

I do think the "new" category should be default as many people before have commented. I don't mind the change of the site. I quite like it. I do agree with the popular opinion of the community-based articles, but do people forget there is in the feed drop down, right next to the sort one, where you can choose if you want only news articles written by the staff? It only takes a few seconds for it to load. It's pretty fun and nice to see others write about things that the staff may forget or forget to include. Overall, I feel like people should give it a chance and just give suggestions instead of putting it down because it's a change.

You guys already have writers who can update news throughout the day and that's an advantage. All you need is to focus on the quality of the post instead of fancy interface. What we had before is just perfect because that is what exactly what I need from a Kpop site. I want to have an idea of what is going on without having to click on different sections, so it's important to have the news presented in order, not by popularity. The infinite scrolling is nice, so keep that but let's get rid of the number and make the arrow smaller/lighter. We don't need to be obsessive over news ranking. I prefer if user article focus on news/update that the writers missed (or maybe don't care because the group isn't famous enough) instead of some biased posts.

A *lot* of websites are now using that 'Hamburger Icon' located on the far right of the Main 'Menu Line' for website NAVIGATION and POINTING at other website features (Drop Down Listing). So, the 'Hamburger Icon' would be located 'right' of the 'pencil icon' and 'person icon' over on the right side that you already have them there. Just an idea ; what you do is what you do.

The 'ARTISTTAG' AKP ARTICLES LISTING option is now ACTIVE again. In the above URL, to Search instead for "IU" AKP ARTICLES, just replace "big-bang" with "iu" in the URL. The AKP ARTICLES do NOT have a 'Click Button' (Gray TAG under old AKP) that activates this yet. I assume that it will soon be added. Obviously, you need to GUESS *exactly* whether the TAG is "bigbang" or "big-bang" ; one works, the other fails ... Also, use the *ALL* setting for ARTICLES Listing, as opposed to *USER* in particular.

@johnny (AKP) <-- I am beginning to see MORE often now, the problem of where you type into the COMMENT input box, to post a MESSAGE, hit SUBMIT, and the MESSAGE does NOT POST. And the typed content (intended) also does DISAPPEAR. NOT sure if anyone else is seeing this, but I am. The 'solution' (long ago adopted here) is to use a TEXT EDITOR (notepad.exe ; etc) to compose the text MESSAGE, and then COPY / PASTE into the COMMENT input box. It almost ALWAYS works on the SECOND try, that the COMMENT does POST okay. It might help to RELOAD / REFRESH the PAGE *before* doing the 'PASTE' and 'SUBMIT' on it too.

It just did the described problem AGAIN on THIS Message here. BUT, I had it COPIED in the TEXT EDITOR ; so NOT a 'big deal' to me exactly.

(Added Later) ... In fact, NOT sure that this FILTER is actually working that much at all. But again, GOOD that these FILTER features are intended.

@johnny (AKP) <-- Okay, on the UP and DOWN Vote 'Arrow' Icons that you CLICK them to Vote accordingly.

Here, IF the 'Count Status' = 0 ; and I do CLICK on the UP Arrow ; it goes to (1) ; all well and good.

BUT, if I change my mind, and want to UNDO that, and so CLICK the DOWN Arrow ; it goes to (-1) ; NOT ZERO.

In other words, I get 'locked' into doing a MINUS or PLUS Vote ; cannot just UNDO the Vote 'back' to NEUTRAL.

I was trying to make the SPOILER feature (far right Icon) work for COMMENTS. It kept failing for me. Or at least I cannot figure out how to make it work in any way. It does generate '[SPOILER][/SPOILER]' in BBCode format. But that seems NOT to generate anything at the HTML Level, when the ( <> ) Icon is activated, and you can view the HTML, such as it is. Maybe I am not using it properly, the SPOILER option Icon somehow?

But also, is there any REFERENCE Listing for the HTML coding? For example, I see that <strong>BOLD</strong> is used at the HTML Level for BOLD DARK LETTERS.

I guess option 1 does make sense. I think users being able to add posts is cool but is the forum gone? IMO the look of new site isn't appealing to the eyes and a little too linear and boxy. Other than that, thanks for keeping the site up lol.

Definitely #2 option!!! Please, don't restrict our freedom of choice!

I can't imagine how annoying it would be to change sorting to "new" every time I visit the page. Especially on my phone.

This post : " Arrest warrant dismissed for Hara's ex-boyfriend Choi " , is a good example about the flaw with the upvote downvote system. It's very likely that most of the downvotes comes from people expressing their disagreement with the warrant being dismissed. Do you understand what I mean ?

Yes, we understand. That's why we're trying to educate and change what an upvote/downvote should really mean.

you should really just set the site sorting to newest to oldest instead of the best. i dont care whats a popular post honestly. i already have the most trending article on the box to my right. when i click on my news site i want to know whats going the latest news. its a hassle having to go to the drop down bar just to get to the newest news. its just really annoying to do. why have 2 things that gives me the best news? keep the most popular box and just change the default as newest.

To create a GOOGLE 'shortcut' for the Browser Address input 'box' -->

https://www.google.com/search?q=Mamamoo+site:www.allkpop.com/article/&tbs=qdr:m

Which would List AKP ARTICLES over ONE MONTH by RELEVANCE for MAMAMOO Group.
You can alter the GOOGLE Search settings ('Past Month' ; 'Relevance') as desired.

https://www.allkpop.com/?feed=n&sort=n

AKP *NEWS* ARTICLES, sorted in a *NEWEST* (Lastest First) manner.

Using (URL above) this 'shortcut' (Browser Address input) would

'save' having to 'reset' the AKP filters somewhat (most likely).

The 'Red Check Mark' (Icon) = AKP WRITER (Employee) posted ARTICLE.

I slowly get used to it but I miss the informative top news when you enter the site. Now its all on the right site or somehow in the news section. I quickly want to see what's trending and think it was easier before. Now there is just an add and it looks kinda empty

Would definitely prefer option 2 since whenever I'm on the site now I always sort to NEW. The upvoting/downvoting system whilst would probably be an indicator of how popular an article is, could be used to downvote by trolls as well.

Wish that the views per article came back from the old site because that could be used to indicate the popularity/interest in an article as opposed to the voting system (and also because I liked seeing the numbers lol)

I prefer #2, NEW. I always have to end up changing it back to NEW articles every time I return to the site. A lot of the BEST articles, I have already read so I don't want them to be mixed at the top of the list for me. I don't mind that option being there but it'd be good if I wouldn't have to manually change it every time, just one time is good.

Notifacation is a issue too. Even after reading the unread notifaction. The number is still there. I tried deleting it but it comes back again. Really funny.

For me, I kept repeating a process where I checked the DELETE ALL (top check box), hit the DELETE BUTTON (they all disappeared). Then did a REFRESH (Reload) of the PAGE (SOME of the NOTIFICATIONS returned). So, I kept repeating that process ; DELETE ALL, then REFRESH. And FINALLY, ALL NOTIFICATIONS did get DELETED. And did NOT RETURN.

I am going with number two as well. And also, i'm sure that a tournament feature should be added sometime in the near future so that users can set up their very own K-Pop tournaments just like you guys.

1. there is so many numbers, text and arrows with white background on the news feeds. kind of annoy me. design somehow reminds me of reddit.

2. whenever i open the site and look at it, i have this thought 'looks incomplete and empty'. but idk what can be added to improve it tough.

3. you're right, i prefer #2. but #1 is better, otherwise people just neglected to read the big stories. me included.

4. on positive note, i really like scrolling down to search articles. so much easier.

We'll see what tweaks can be done with the design, but we were aiming for a more minimalistic and space saving design. A night mode will be coming however, for users who do not like the white background. We can also possibly explore additional color schemes, in addition to just a night mode.

when you read replies to your comments, you can only see one of the replies that people have written.
Also, you need to manually scroll down past the article to see the reply.

The notification takes you directly to that particular comment. I'll have to double check, but if there are additional comments in that thread, it should show them all. We can make an adjustment as for the scrolling, to take you directly to the comment section upon click.

I FIND IT extemely rude how your staffs did not post anything about Red Velvet winning an award today. All I saw was BTS. Also don’t say that your staffs didn’t see any news about red velvet winning an award because they were all over the news. I find it rude because BTS was not the only winner today but Red Velvet also won an award too. Please fix your favouritism.
