New QT Coming in early 2023!
« on: September 22, 2022, 02:31:08 PM »
It's that time again. Time to modernize and update QueryTracker, and I've decided on a complete re-write. That means there are (almost) no limits to what new features can be added.

So, if you have any thoughts about additions or changes you'd like to see, please let me know.

And, for those who don't like change (me included) rest assured, every effort will be taken to keep the new QT user interface as close to the original as possible, avoiding any steep learning curve.

Hi Patrick,

No requests -- just sincere thanks for all your hard work designing, maintaining, and now updating this site.  It makes a huge difference for many of us, both as a practical/organizational aid and as a way of finding community.  Bravo, on behalf of all of us users.

Only thing I can think of would be to add the option to organize your query list by responses, like you can with the basic agent search.

Thank you, Tallis.

Only thing I can think of would be to add the option to organize your query list by responses, like you can with the basic agent search.

Talean, One thing I'm planning is to combine the search page and the query list page into one. You'll have the option to easily switch between viewing it in search mode or in query list mode. So you'll still have both views. But since they are really the same page, any feature found on one will be on the other.

That's my long way of saying you'll be able to sort your query list just like you can the search page.

The only further request I have is that you continue to be awesome.

Just wanted to say the video in the newsletter of two of the upcoming new features was awesome! Great changes.

A fairly easy change I'd like to see is maybe a <40k length option (and even 30k) for novels as well. I've written one middle grade which is a bit long at 60k but my current one will come out at maybe 35k and I'm wondering if it's a bit short these days (I hear the trend is getting longer), so it would be interesting to see what others are submitting and what's getting requested.

Thanks redseafish. The genre options now go all the way down to 1000 words.
