Caitlin Petre’s comparison of how Gawker and the New York Times use audience metrics for Columbia Journalism’s Tow Center is a long, but interesting read for anyone wanting to nerd-out on Gawker, media, blogging and the Kinja platform.
This is a screencap of Crosstalk after I had posted a tweet and added a video, plus a link. I kept the crosshead because I felt it enhanced the post internally. If there's not going to be way to keep them internally, but turn them off externally (increasing clicks), I think the video thumbnail should go over to the…
Sometime between midnight last night and early this morning Kinja changed the way it handled "related posts", thus making all of my previous "News Roundups" unusable. Now that I've verified the change is kinja-permanent, I'll use today's to find a new layout, then go back and apply them to the previous posts.
I just tried to embed an iframe-based video player from CMT into a post. As you can see below, the player displays properly, but when I click play, I get a video retrieval error. It works fine in a test embed outside of Kinja, so something in Kinja appears to be getting in the way. TYLTK
Maybe it's me, but I haven't been able to get the comment edit to work in 1.2 with Chrome on Win7. I haven't tried it every day, but I haven't gotten it to work in at least a couple of weeks and every time I've just switched to Firefox to make my change. TYLTK

Due to several recent articles that really prove the mainpage isn't always a safe place to wander around, I'm trying to set up an RSS feed so I can see what my favourite authors write (BURT!) while not being tempted to click on the other stuff. Sometimes it is so tempting, particularly when the commenters are actually…
I'm posting this to my personal Kinja and not a community because the issue is just technical, but I thought it worthy of a heads-up. Of course I'm not looking at the code and it may not be easy to fix, but it is something.
For some reason, two of the posts I made today went to "scheduled" with the time that I hit publish as the scheduled time. The first time, I took the post back into edit a couple of times and hit publish again, but all that did was reset the scheduled to the new time, so I just set it for a minute in the past.
Unlike last time, I'm not sure of the rhyme or reason because I appear to be getting it no matter if results are found, but sporadically this AM, I'm getting an @6fj9nenc3 error from search. TYLTK
Not the biggest problem in the world, but if you drop down either of the menus, then click the "discuss" or "reply" button, or simply move the mouse off the menu without clicking, it will stay in front until you click a non-clickable part of the page.
After some experimentation, I've identified a few issues with Kinja-served affiliate ads and would like to report them, plus give a heads-up to anyone else who may be interested by doing it with a public post.
After the invention of daguerrotype, the memorializing habits of people have changed: they've chosen the cheap, higher quality photographs instead of expensive and not so lifelike paintings. Painting dead people was common for centuries, so it's no surprise that, in the Victorian Era, post-mortem photos also came into…
We’ll tell you how, with a little help from Edward Wike. In 1973, Wike published a little paper called, “Water beds and sexual satisfaction.” Learn about sex, beds, sea-sickness pills, and how to create a terribly-designed study.
Ok this is kind of cool. You can take a road trip right from home with Google Street View.
