The Plurkable Plurk Wish List

Plurk Wish ListI’ve been a Plurkoholic lately, which is a good thing. But because of the amount of time I’ve spent on Plurk, I’ve found a lot of Plurk features, or lack there of, a bit disconcerting. Granted, Plurk is fairly new and we understand their working on a lot of upgrades and features, but I’m hoping they guys running the show can help us out with some badly needed goodies.

The following is my list:

1) Better Mobile Plurk Access
One of the reason Twitter was so easy for me to use (when it actually worked, that is) is because I used TwitteryBerry for my Blackberry religiously. I had one of my side buttons linked directly to the TwitterBerry application, meaning I could access my Tweet stream with just two clicks. From there it was very easy to navigate to private messages, replies, and update my own stream.

I realize that Twitterberry is a third party application accessing data via API, but that doesn’t change the fact that Twitter is MUCH easier to use via mobile compared to Plurk. In fact, Plurk mobile is downright frustrating.

I need a link to my own Plurks, and I need the Plurks to refresh when I reply. Is that too much to ask? Maybe it is… but I still want it.

2) Link to Plurks that I’ve Replied to
I have more than 500 friends, and I’m following most of them. So, this makes it virtually impossible to keep up with my own responses. I find the “view new reponses” button to be shaky, and not very useful overall. I would prefer to see a tab or button that takes me directly to my own replies.

3) Plurk API
I know I know… wait, right? Come on… this is a community that is growing leaps and bounds. The second an API is released we, the community, will see hundreds of new tools and applications go live. If you think Plurk is exciting now, just wait for an API to go live.

4) Better Widgets
I had the widget running in the sidebar here, but it was only showing my Plurks. I wish I could customize it and make it show various Plurks, such as the Plurk dev team timelines or those who blog here at Plurkable. I know an API will likely solve this, but I would love to see Plurk solve it for us.

This can also be done via RSS, so that will likely be the route I take if an API doesn’t show up soon.

5) Karma That Doesn’t Punish
OK, I know Karma is Karma, but like Google pagerank, you can’t say it doesn’t matter, yet weigh so much of your livelihood on it and not expect us to get excited about keeping it on the upward trend. So, in essence, we care about Karma. We Plurk about Karma, we speculate on the ALGO, we try and figure it out… heck we thrive on karma. Which is cool, but…

Please don’t drop Karma when we step away from Plurk for a day or two. It’s silly, and it punishes those of us who market Plurk, refer others to use Plurk, Plurk our brains out, and love Plurk as if it were a new puppy. Is there not a way to make the value of being away a day or two lesser when a Plurker is more active?

I have other minor wishes, but these are my main desires. What are yours?

skapur just suggested time stamps on Plurks. Good idea! I wonder though, if this sort of thing would make the timeline more cluttered?

Mark adds via comment

1) I think Plurk’s timeline will get very crowded very quickly as you add friends. How about another view option, e.g. a vertical timeline?

2) I’d like to filter by clique so I can separate work and non-work plurks without setting up 2 separate plurk accounts

3) I’d like to search for other plurkers by interest/location/keyword

4) I’d like to search for plurks by keyword
