Drive By Cool Reporting

If you don't personally know a cool hunter to talk to about making Dreamwidth better, you can leave a comment here. The cool hunters are interested in:
  • Ways you use Dreamwidth that the site wasn't really designed for
  • Ways Dreamwidth makes it difficult or tedious to do things you want to do
  • Tools you use from outside of Dreamwidth to make things happen on Dreamwidth
  • Tools your friends are using on other blogging sites, personal publishing sites, electronic diaries, etc. that you wish we had on Dreamwidth
You don't have to tell cool hunters things, of course. If you have a clear idea of how to make DW better, you're probably better off telling [site community profile] dw_suggestions. But if all you know is that "It's too hard to do X," comment here to tell a cool hunter. We're here to serve as a cool to developer translation service.

Please put a subject on your comment! This makes it much easier for me to properly corral the reports in gmail.

One additional refinement: we may be able to use JS as an additional way to reveal (a tiny "click to reveal" icon or link?). There seem to be accessibility implications with having to click and drag, or it may just be difficult for people on some systems.

The only issue I can think of now are sighted people using text-based browsers; and the only way around that is to store the text somewhere else, which... would interfere with interfaces which can't use JS.
