PostSubject: A Machine Nation toolbar?   A Machine Nation toolbar? EmptyWed Mar 19, 2008 10:54 pm

I've only typed Machine Nation a few times into Google and it already feels a bit irritating. I prefer the way on P.ie you just click on the P.ie logo on the toolbar and it brings you straight there.

I was wondering if a similar system could be set up here. Is it easy? Would it be both costly in time and money?

It'd be nice as it would heighten user retention rates as the place expands, plus I like collecting toolbars. I like getting rid of some too. Deleting the Yahoo(curse be upon their name) one was a satisfying experience.

Auditor, EvotingMachine, would you be able to do it? It'd look good, I'm sure of it.

Is that not a setting on your browser? I have the name of the forum in the address box and I access it from the list there.

You are using IE I presume (vista?) and you have a quick-link icon on it somewhere that you click for p.ie or where ever?

( Sad don't make me boot up vista, that hog..)

Yeah, it'd be nice to have that sort of thing.

Surely there are websites where these things can be put together?

I don't even know the name of it !! But I'll find out and let you know. It'll be a good project although it's not possible to upload computer code to the machine we're on now (ask evm for details) so we can't control the cookies or anything as far as I know...

I wouldn't hold my breath

On the other hand you could make us your homepage Very Happy !!

I could do that, homepaging Machine Nation would be a good one, though I'd have to let RTÉ.ie down easy, they'll be heart-broken.
