Noticed this and just want to throw out some suggestions:

  • Different types of connections, denoting different relations between nodes. For example, reply, subordination, approval, contradiction, etc... Also ability to add connections post-node-creation, so someone can go "oh, these are related!" *bamf*
  • Different types of nodes denoting different functions. Some should be headers, for example, that other stuff goes under. Or +1 posts can get a different color.

A non-linear forum is an interesting concept. It'd fix the problem of unrelated conversations in the same thread - if you don't have anything to add to the person above you you're just replying to OP you can just reply to OP.

Aye, those are all features I'm planning to work on. I'm also thinking of a connection between posts that basically says "these posts say the same thing", which would cause replies to one to show up as replies to both? I'm not sure though.

Nice to see this is still being worked on.
The preview feature is functional and cool-looking.
The zoom feature and moving around the graph is sluggish for me on almost-latest version of Chrome on Windows.

As for the lag, I'm also still trying to optimize a bit more, too, so hopefully it'll work better. I'm curious as to what sort of computer it was running on? Like, an old laptop, or a new gaming computer...?

Something in between. Win 8.1, i7 3rd gen CPU, 8 GB RAM, Radeon x600/x550 series.

I've tried it on Chrome and FF. Both are similarly sluggish, FF might be a bit less sluggish.
The size of the window also plays a factor.

Huh, it's still sluggish? I did a bunch of optimizing, it hardly lags at all for me now, especially on chromium. :/

Still sluggish. Maybe it's network lag? I'm from central Europe.
The site loads in ~5 secs, the times for each request range from 100 ms to 400 ms.
Not sure how to measure websocket's lag, but it seems quite fast.

Also, on Chrome the dots are only partly connected: https://imgur.com/a/5JQ3A
On FF they are fully connected.

Huh, weird. I've had other people get the same problem, but haven't managed to reproduce it myself yet. :

Hmm. So I'm working on implementing federation, which will allow Agora sites to connect to each other, and to Mastodon, Pleroma, and other such sites. I hope to have the feature implemented within a week or two. While I'm at it, I'm thinking of rebranding, maybe? The name Agora seems kinda plain, and it's used by an awful lot of different projects. I was thinking Canopy might work better? Or some other foresty sounding name? I'm not sure on the details. XD
