What happens when posts get updated?
@Alberto, @Matthias, @melancon
I’m wondering what happens when posts get updated---- I am getting some deja vu when coding ‘new’ posts, and am slightly worried that a user updating a post might cause some annotations to go away. On a related note, I’m getting posts popping up in the OC explorer that are marked as “new” when they are already coded----any idea why? Different from the “x new comment” posts, they are marked as though they are entirely new, but they are all coded.
Also, I know we are strapped for resources in this area, but now that I’m heading into a second pass, I could really use a way of visualizing all of my codes (VERY ideally without Inga’s) so it is straightforward to move them into hierarchies and merge/fork/delete/rename them. Think of the priority at this stage as a categorization and editing of existing codes rather than doing new coding, and then we can imagine ways of making that more straightforward. I’ve just sent a WP to @Alberto which details the process— I think even though new stories are being generated (that I am still coding) it makes sense to put energy into refining and categorizing (so stages 2 and 3 of the ethnographic coding process).
An interface to drag, drop, and rename (like @melancon suggested very early on in this process) would be ideal. I know that it is technically possible to rename codes as it stands (and I’ve been doing it when a needed change is immediately obvious) but it is very difficult to visualize all the codes (or even multiple codes) at once to see what needs to be edited.
And as always, it would be extremely helpful to be able to only see uncoded posts in the oc explorer especially now that the majority are coded now.
