WordPress, it seems, is always looking for ways to improve its sense of community, and finding ways for bloggers to find and connect with each other. Also, they seem to enjoy having your “follow” lists blink in and out, so that sometimes you’re following a blog, then you aren’t, so you re-follow, then suddenly you’re getting two notifications each time they post, and that seems a little excessive, but you hate to un-follow them… but that’s a separate issue.
The real issue is all the buttons they provide for getting involved with people’s posts. But, in their ongoing efforts to improve, what other buttons could they include for you to have?
For the tortured artist types who like to be fueled by torment: “This was good… probably the last good thing you’ll write”
For people providing recipes: “My aunt made this once and we all got food poisoning.”
For people writing humor: “Coffee came out my nose.”
For people writing about television: “I don’t own a television and felt compelled to make sure you know that.”
For commenters: “I hit ‘submit’ on my comment, and a microsecond spotted my typo. I hate that.”
For general purpose: “I am having chest pains. Please call an ambulance.”
See? The possibilities are just endless!
But what else? For the Weekly Question of the Week this week: What new buttons would you like to see on WordPress?
P.S. Also – a few of you may have noticed that yesterday did not reveal finalists for last week, or a new featured blogger. Part of that was because I was writing about Adam Yauch passing away, part of it was because last week I was in the midst of a shameless attempt to Jules’ contest over at Go Guilty Pleasures, and so the question of the week was barely a question; so we’ll gloss over that, and continue the voting for best poem, and the current Featured Blogger.
