Drive By Cool Reporting

If you don't personally know a cool hunter to talk to about making Dreamwidth better, you can leave a comment here. The cool hunters are interested in:
  • Ways you use Dreamwidth that the site wasn't really designed for
  • Ways Dreamwidth makes it difficult or tedious to do things you want to do
  • Tools you use from outside of Dreamwidth to make things happen on Dreamwidth
  • Tools your friends are using on other blogging sites, personal publishing sites, electronic diaries, etc. that you wish we had on Dreamwidth
You don't have to tell cool hunters things, of course. If you have a clear idea of how to make DW better, you're probably better off telling [site community profile] dw_suggestions. But if all you know is that "It's too hard to do X," comment here to tell a cool hunter. We're here to serve as a cool to developer translation service.

Please put a subject on your comment! This makes it much easier for me to properly corral the reports in gmail.

Disabling/Modifying the Types of Alerts Sent When Crossposting

I'm not sure how to properly turn this into a suggestion for [site community profile] dw_suggestions, mostly because I am not entirely sure that this isn't already possible and I'm just too blind to see it.

Right now when you crosspost, you get an alert in your inbox telling you that you successfully crossposted an entry. I'd like to have the option of turning this off. I don't need a success message sent to my inbox. I'd like a fail alert though, one that would not just go to my inbox, but also go to my email. It isn't important for me to know when everything goes according to plan, but it would be REALLY important to me to know when something failed.

As far as I can tell, there aren't settings to manage the creation of these alerts.
