New stuff coming soon to LiveJournals near you....

http://www.danga.com/demo/commentmanage.html

Maximize your browser to watch the demo.

I got sick of all the clicks and dead-ends required when managing comments in your journal, and I needed an excuse to use my newJavaScript skills to good use.

Some notes:
  • it works in IE, Safari, and Firefox.
  • it falls back to old behavior with an old browser or with JavaScript disabled
  • works with any S2 style w/ minor modications if you don't inherit some stuff from the core
  • any server-side error messages are propogated back to the user in alert boxes
  • the pauses in the demo are intentional so you can see the animations. (spinning hourglass during slow operation, or pulsating red delete box) usually it'll be near instant.
It'll probably be launched next week and only available when your beta test cookie is enabled.
