A new "recent stories" list

richardshagrin

Has any thought been given or is there any demand for a listing of recent random stories listed on the front page? The listing don't stay around very long, it might be nice to be able to check and see if there is one you missed that you might enjoy reading.

Just an idle thought, unless others would like to agitate for a service like the ones provided for new stories and serial updates.

If you click on "more" next to "random story from the archives" you get more than one.

What would be nice is to have a button on the random story box to give you another random story. Keep hitting the button and you keep getting another story.

The site doesn't keep a list, so it would require changing that to keep track.

The whole point of the feature is the Randomness of the thing. Whenever you visit the page, a story gets suggested (stays there for 2 hours). If you happen to be there you see it, if not, then you didn't know about it to begin with.

That's a premier feature. He doesn't get that link.

That's the way it was. I kept getting requests for more random stories in one shot, so I created the new system. I'm not about to switch back to the old system.

I have seen the "more" feature on Fine Stories. Fine stories has a lot of nice features that probably serve as a preview of what SOL would provide if you were a premier member. Unfortunately I live on Social Security and don't see how to swing a lot more expenses. Having Internet access is sort of a luxury, I went without for the last 2 weeks (November 3 to 19) but got 90 minutes free at my local library. I don't miss working, much, but I do miss the paycheck. Having free access to SOL is very nice, thank you Lazeez.
