BTW, how is 23hq working out for you? It seems like a great little service. I miss the resolution... but I'm so sick of all the censorship and other political and evil yahoo crap that has transpired on flickr.
I'm still liking 23 - especially the way you track conversations here is really good. I still visit flickr a lot to see photos from friends not on 23 though. :o)
I dig 23. I consider flickr's conversation tracking a great asset... actually haven't used 23hq's tracking. Right now i'm using co.mments.com to track these. It works great, probably works pretty much the same way.
What I like is the first email co.mments sends is a summary of all comments thus far... so i have a record of the thread in gmail. Any future comments it then sends with the same title so they thread in gmail and maintain context. Love it.
Is 23hq so simple?
