Subject Re: [DRAFT] What the new Status info looks like
Date Sat, 10 Jun 2017 16:23:59 GMT
There are few usability issues.

For the actions on a particular row, the double click is highly
unconventional. That is evidenced by the fact that you have to tell people
how to do it. I would suggest having a pull down on each row or use the
standard sort of select,act style of interface where each row can be
selected and there are several action buttons at top or bottom.

I also find that the + buttons don't work. Instead of allowing me to add
something, the inexplicably turn into search boxes. It isn't clear what is
being searched since the box appears after all the other data. It would
make more sense if the + were slightly outside the content list and
clicking it caused a number of text entries to appear that allow me to
enter required information.

I also find that the podling proposal link look like a content header
because it is soooo close to the green explanation for how to add things.
Removing the usage documentation (because it should be superfluous if the
UI is properly discoverable) would allow this link to make more sense, but
I would still want a separation from textual content and the list of people.
