More Site SimplificationHello everyone!
I'm thinking of making some modifications to the site by way of removing some features. Brevity is the soul of wit, and all that. First, I'm going to remove the highlighting functionality, also the "tagging" or "pinning" functionality. And comments on the tutorials. They're nice features, they could be helpful, but they're a little distracting. And unnecessary. I hope to make the site a lot simpler, while still adding more information.
Hopefully everything will work out well. We're not getting much traffic as much these days, and most visitors just want to learn their tricks and go! So we need to accommodate the largest possible audience. I'm sure some features won't be missed.
One thing I've also been reconsidering is the Advice section. I suppose being able to post a request for advice is a decent feature. But it seems that it's a lot of answering the same questions over and over. Or, answering questions that have already been answered in previous advice entries, or in the tutorials.
So, I think I might either reorganize the Advice section into a "common problems" section of sorts, or perhaps add more "troubleshooting" information to the relevant tutorials. After this, I'll probably be able to phase out "accounts" on the site completely. I'd like to thank everyone of course who has made an account and used it, your participation is greatly appreciated. Let's see what the future holds!
