As many of you have noticed, the pie filter and the random quote rotator are now in both the desktop and mobile sites, though there are still some issues we’re addressing that affect a few users. This is progress!
In bringing each of them to the fore, I’ve revealed them to have an inadequate set of messages. This is your chance to make suggestions to add to the site, and, in the case of the pie filter, I’ll be sharing all suggestions with Cleek, who invented it and helped launch it as a built-in part of the site. Since other sites also use this filter, you’ll be helping other communities, not just Balloon Juice.
You can review the current set of quotes at this link: https://www.balloon-juice.com/bjcustom/quotes-collection.json
You can review the current set of pie sayings at this link: https://www.balloon-juice.com/bjcustom/pie_strings.json
Quote suggestions will go through an approval process, but most-to-all pie sayings will be accepted. Finally, someone suggested using the Balloon Juice lexicon as another source for quotes. For my taste, they’re too long so I’m considering another application for the lexicon.
Please this nifty new form to submit your suggestions for either. One quote per submission, and we limit you to 10 per hour. I hope to add them early next week. Should the form be an issue or have an issue, please comment below. I’m not around in this post, so I won’t be here to deal with questions or reports of site issues.
