MB - Wishes

Latest Update : December 12th 2018

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.

I 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!)

Not had time to parse ideas found from @kaa here

My thanks to rnv for highlighting this thread started by ft saying that “this thread has generated some interesting suggestions that would be in good company on your MB wishlist”

Meanwhile @SimonWoods just weighed in with his ideas ….

My number one miss from 1999 days ….. ‘see an error in a post you are viewing and edit it right there - through the same interface.’

Sorry - I just don’t have time to consolidate all of this into a single logical place. One day, but meanwhile who else is out there wishing for things ?
