MB - Wishes

This started out as a WIP post that calls out ‘Things I Really Want From Micro.Blog. It is a task wih no end, so I published this page (a la @burk calling out ideas on emoji use), to capture the communties ideas for what they would like to see.

Just now finished restructuring around a rough functional list - calling out community members that submitted their ideas. (Note- as in specifically raised it - not voting for it … yet!)

Search the social community by subject at Micro.blog then it makes every post in the community more fleeting, more ephemeral. @bradenslen  
The posts are still on the individual blogs, for posterity, but they are Balkanized, this makes the need for a site search on each individual blog even greater. @bradenslen  
On an individual post auto navigation links to previous and next posts @johnphilpin  
‘Roll my own’ template so I can truly control how I look to the outside world @johnphilpin
