Queuing bypass for new theme membics. #32
K mentioned it would be good to allow the first few membics for a new theme to bypass the queuing, like what happens when you first create a new account. It does look a bit anemic to create a new theme with just one post in it, so allowing a small queuing bypass could be worthwhile.
But even if the queuing process is modified to allow the first 5 posts in a new theme to go through, it can still be frustrating if you are trying to load up an entire reference reading list. Especially if you want to embed the theme as a page in your website, or provide the standalone theme page to a bunch of people eagerly awaiting it. Queuing up a lot of membics can delay things for quite a while. It's not the same use case as a catch-up day where you post 4-5 membics in a row.
There used to be a batch upload option, but that was disabled a while ago when it became clear the number of potential interactions and options would make batch creation more complicated then just entering the membics via the dialog. That's why when you mail in a membic you still need to ok it.
At the risk of making the dialog even more complex, there should probably be a radio box option for
[x] Queue [ ] Skip Feed (?)
when a membic is going to be queued. If the feeds are skipped, then the membic does not show up in the RSS or the main display. Clicking the help link explains what is going on.
Could be reasonable to use the srcrev -202 flag for this, but probably better to use a new status code in case batch gets resurrected for specific highly defined situations.
