The Monthly Readers' Feedback, Complaint & Suggestions Post
As is our tradition, to use the word abusively, at the start of any month we have a post where readers (and authors, why not?) can post suggestions, complaints, general feedback, pose questions (about the site, about the authors or an author in particular, etc), ask for subjects to be covered, etc. ad nauseum.
This is that post. As my co-authors are largely much better human beings than I am, please do feel free to expect some constructive feedback or responses from them. I am likely simply to ignore you, but no matter, everyone should be used to that.

I'm finding the mainpage slow to upload, what with all the external links like site counter and paypal. The biggest slowdown is the roberta.speich.fr (or something like that) link.

That is the flag counter server. The scrolling feature, while space-saving, does tend to degrade performance. May revert it back to the old style.
Paypal is just a button. Should remove that anyway as I think it is ugly.

what ever happened to the "subscribe to comments" box at the bottom of the posts? i often don't want to comment but wish to read other's comments yet find myself not going back to old posts because i'm, for lack of a better excuse, lazy.

There was a forced upgrade, it fucked up the notifier feature (along with a dozen other things). I mucked about with it for about 2 hours last week but couldn't get it to work properly. Interim solution is the "Recent Comments" section on the sidebar.
I like notification emails as well, useful for monitoring site performance. Could be fixed soon, or not. Depends on what is holding my attention.

i suggest it hold your attention. it's a damn inconvenience!
i assume forced upgrade due to security issues?

what happened to the nifty flag thing on the front page sidebar?
perhaps we can move it to a subpage?
