I’d like Bloglines to allow me to set up some default settings for new subscriptions. I don’t use Bloglines from my mobile phone, but it’s not infeasible to imagine that I might. For this reason, I try to keep my “mobile subscriptions” list short and clean. And that means every subscription I make, I have to uncheck the “add to my mobile” checkbox.
I’ve been talking a lot about settings and default values with Markosamuli recently. One way of enabling “pseudo-settings” for specific kinds of fields is to default to the value that was used last time (or used most often, or some other criteria). This allows the system to assign a probable default value for non-critical fields — without making the user decide or explicitly set (and have the system keep track of) a particular setting.
Remembered defaults, see?
