How should this look? March 4, 2000 5:47 AM   Subscribe

Since the nature of posts and discussion is different here, does anyone think the display should be different than MetaFilter's index page? Instead of time-based (by date) listing of topics, I'm wondering if this area should take on a UBB-style of display (see the glassdog boards as a prime example of these), where there are subject areas, and discussion threads below that. That way, there could be a permanent area for discussion of bugs, another thread permanently dedicated to feature requests, etc., let me know what you think because it could easily be done here.

I think the ubb style would be better suited for this section of MeFi. It would be less cumbersome to post feedback and the fourms would provide specialized areas to post, so all the feed back isn't put up here just by date.

I can understand the argument, but I have to admit that I like the look-and-feel of MF enough that I'm a bit loath to change. There are a million UBB style sites out there, and although they *do* work well, I really like the fact that this is different. I like the color change idea for this section, but it makes the floaty menu pop out in a kind of scary way.

Just one note, when I click on the person who posted a note their email comes up as matt%40haughey.com and not matt@haughey.com. However the actual href link works great. Just wondered as to why its doing that.
Otherwise I think the design works fine, solid stuff.
