  • Probably a bad time to make a suggestion with today being a Wordie-to-Wordnik transfer day, but: I like the "Lists" list at the top right of our profile. It would be even cooler if there were some way to select which 8 lists appear on that column, as to point profile-perusers to Prominent lists of ours. It would also give our profiles us that personalized, representative sparkly touch.

  • Someone made the suggestion that a user-configurable preference to set the "COMMENTS" section be the default (if so desired, rather than 'Definitions') would be good for some of the conversation-heavy Wordie users. Seems like a good idea.

  • yes, this! I miss going straight to the good stuff

  • PS I don't like the new home page, the Zeitgeist is so much more entertaining! I guess the home page is Wordnik for Dummies, eh?

  • Sorry, not trying to be negative. Change is good! Many improvements are materializing. I just need to remember to click a different link for the real Wordie-style "home".

  • Oh yes, whichbe, I think that was me (re user preference for going straight to "comments" when you click on a word).

    I've since noticed that if a word has comments you can click on the comments link and thus go straight to the bit you want, so that's a useful thing to know, but if it's a virgin word you still have to go via the definitions/reference area first.

  • On the right, there is this “Be the first!” link to create a new list... What are the chances that some word inspires someone to create a complete new list for it (not too low, I own, but wait for the second part of this sentence) in comparison to the probability that someone just wants to add it to an existing list? A little AJAXy interface, summonable with a single click, as on Wordie emeritus, would be more called for I think.

    And I like frindley’s novel idea of moving the comment textarea to the top. :-)

  • Over on comments john already said the function of "Add to list" will be provided again. I'm assuming it will be in the "Take this word and.." drop-down.

  • I like the idea of more Profile/user features, all small things. Like choosing which of one's own lists to display on our profile page, we could also have a configurable selection for the Favorites listing, thus pimping the best of the best in general, not just more-recent.

    Also, frindley points to the idea of more user-to-user interaction. We've discussed and (mostly) dismissed the idea of personal messaging on Wordie, however a "search" feature might be good. In general, the Profile questions need to be re-thought with the change, too... Location seems like a good field. The I AM A/SEEKING A___ question was a ha-ha funny but I feel that a more fill-in-the-blank approach would be better (ever-mocking the notion of 'Profiles'-as-personal-ads gets old)... I'll brainstorm up some possible new profile questions later today.
