  • I have suggestions and a request:

    Suggestions:

    Some sort of category system, ala
      Categories: (sports/recreation/slash/computers/adult/etc).

    Search ability on the site's name.

    Request: in the list, break sites with titles like

    "The Syndicate newswire"

    into the list as

    "Syndicate newswire, The"

    • Search would be easy enough to do. Now on type, I could just use topics.
      Thing is, what is a good list of topics, and where do we find images for them :)

      So you are just talking about ignoring "The" in the search?

        No, ignore 'the' in the YASS listing. (Ignoring it in the search, er treating it as a noise word would probably be a good idea I'd think too).

        As for topics vs categories - if you do topics, you need images. If you do categories - then it gives people stuff to search on/list by.

        (ie sports,devel,news,adult,whatever).

        what would be really cool would be a hierarchial thing:

          sports
              football
              baseball
              bicycling
                  road biking
                  mountain biking
          news
              linux
          development
              perl
              win32

          etc etc. then when you YASS a site you check off all that apply.

          Probably not a high priority, but it would make for a really useful index of slash sites that'd be organizable by type/category/whateveryouwantocallit.

        • Someone is working on the hierarchial bit at the moment for topics. We will at least have some secondairy topic additions in the next release (I think they are already in CVS...).

          So, if someone wants to come up with a flat list for now with some images I will happily add them.
