How can I vote for old issues/PRs? Apparently I can only vote for new issues/PRs or the issues/PRs with the most upvotes or downvotes.
I think a simple function like “enter issue/PR ID here” would here.
The app picks up new issues every 30 minutes. I didn’t do a full github issues dump (which I believe is not possible via the API anyway) - so yeah, old stuff that’s still open isn’t and won’t be in the issue voter. The voter is future-oriented, so to say…
An Issue/PR gets marked as ‘stale’ if it hasn’t been updated in a week (updated means activity on GitHub). The choice of ‘1 week’ was completely arbitrary. It’s configurable and thus can be changed very easily. If you (especially devs/contributors) think it should be different please make an issue at GitHub (here).
This seems to be technically doable. Yet I’m against it - I don’t want the IV to be information overloaded, and I want to present as little biasing information as possible (e.g. I will never show the author of issue/pr). And all that info is one click away anyway.
Also the ‘stale’ indicator is a proxy for discussion activity.
Having said the above - I want the IV to serve the community… Opinions will be heard, so to say
BTW. If possible I’d prefer getting such suggestions through GitHub issues, as I don’t check the forum too often.
Seems we have now 50 registered users (not counting me) - half way to the round 100
Also a note for people missing old(er) issues: it seems the GitHub API reports the last 30 modified issues - therefore old(er) issues are being picked up as well when there is some activity. Once picked up the issue will stay until it is closed (and then until it’s cleaned from closed).
