Daily Reports Chatter

If it's germane, yet doesn't fit into another category, it can go here.

Bleeeeeeeegh can we not do that.

Expanding a little: it feels vaguely dispreferable and it would still require me to do some work and it would still be inconvenient if I lost internet access or such and really I'd prefer something very much more automated than that.

I'm pretty sure throne wants to not have the responsibility for the thing, and it is not terribly good when a thing like this depends on user action, this is part of the problem we're trying to solve

It's a classic on-web-hosting-that-only-lets-you-respond-to-requests kludge to evaluate this kind of “cron job” stuff whenever any request comes in, whether or not it's a user intending to trigger it or not. Works fine as long as you have enough activity.

Is the email thing still a big priority if there's the nifty-unread-report-links thing?

nifty-unread-report-links as in the daily report becomes Glowy And Interesting when there's an unread report?

I said this on the main Constellation thread, but I don’t want the Daily Report to just assume a pageview is equivalent to a read, especially if a pageview for today’s report is equivalent to a read for all unread reports. It should only advance the read counter when viewing the first unread report (or hitting some sort of “mark report read until today” button, maybe with an option to require that button press and not advance it automatically).

This should not I don't think be a blocker to the report being moved off this forum, as this forum automatically advances unread so it would not be a regression from current behavior. That is, I think your concern should be noted, but if the thing you want has issues (a button, special behavior of some kind), we should be able to compromise on the thing you don't want (basic unread functionality) so as to get the report so I don't have to waste effort on it any more.

I.e. features that are not currently present in the forum daily report should not weigh in the decision of whether/when to move on from it.

I understand that, but if it is easy to accidentally load the most recent report, thereby resetting the unread tracker, I think that would constitute a regression. It is much harder to accidentally load the last page in the forum; the button to do so is small and far away from the easier-to-click thread title or current unread buttons.
