I think we can all agree* that Kinja 1.0 has shaken out to be at least "eh, not as awful as I was expecting", and possibly even "this is pretty damn cool, actually!" But there are a few things I'd love to see implemented. Just right off the top of my head:
This is possibly hard to verify, but I'd swear that a discussion thread I'd participated in that was "disappeared" in the previous version is visible now (Data genderbend cosplayer, boobs). Anyone else noticed anything like that?
Is that picture on the left (which I harsh on in the post itself) on the O-deck page because of tag choice? I didn't put it in the article itself (there's a longer version), so why is it there? And why is it there after I take all the tags out of the post?
