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.

Okay, this sounds... a little odd, and I'm not sure how to request it or if this is a place to do it but...

Would there be some way to make linked journals? That is, to have the owner of said journals somehow (voluntarily) network together their various journals for different (but not hidden from each other) uses? Like a pull down menu or something so you could go from, say, Bob's Garden Blog to Bob's Food Blog to Bob's Fiction Blog in such a way that makes it coherent that it is all the same Bob. And if you wanted to, you could get, say, a master RSS link to All Of Bob if you wanted, to get all of Bob if you wanted to read all of his linked blogs in one convenient option. (Though of course you could still get just the Garden Blog or whatever as individual RSS if you wanted an individual one)

The reason? Some people are always starting a bunch of different separate purpose journals, which they voluntarily and publically link together, but which might be hard for a casual reader to keep track of.
