Itch: UI for creating a TK editorial mark

Logged an itch UI for creating a TK editorial mark (indieweb.org)
TK is an abbreviated editorial mark made when writing, proofreading, or editing to indicate that a portion of the piece is to come some time in the future.

TK is an abbreviated editorial mark made when writing, proofreading, or editing to indicate that a portion of the piece is to come some time in the future.

Writers often use the combination when writing so as not to slow down the flow of their thought when they might otherwise need to look something up or do some research.

Because the letter combination TK is very rare in the English language it is easy to do a search or search/replace for the mark in digital documents.

Examples

Medium

When composing text in Medium if one writes a stand alone TK within the text, the text editor shows a yellow TK within the margin as an indicator to return to that place to finish the thought(s).

Example of a TK editorial mark in the Medium.com user interface.

Improve comments admin UI to filter out likes and Swarm replies

Logged an itch Improve comments admin UI to filter out likes and Swarm replies

I’d been considering figuring this out before given the high incidence of likes on my posts, particularly from POSSE copies, but now that I’ve fixed checkins on my site, Swarm is also sending a lot of small replies, which while nice, are adding a lot of noise to my comments dashboard.

Perhaps I can figure out a way to use query parameters to filter out some of the like webmentions and replies from Swarm so that I’m not really building anything new?

Sometimes you make a major step forward and it creates new UI problems. We’ll get there eventually.

Logged an itch Create an itch post kind on my website (indieweb.org)
Itches, in the context of the IndieWeb, are individuals's personal sources of annoyances using the web or in particular their own website, that they use to itemize and prioritize what to create, design, build, and improve on their own website, often by first listing such "itches" on a section in their User: page or their own website.

I seem to have so many itches of things I’d like to do on my website, it seemed like a good idea to have an itch post type so I can more easily collect them in one place and have an archive of my itches. I’m using an experimental microformat itch-of for display.
