Much lagging, little progress. I hate to admit it, but we seem to get more done in face-to-face (and phone) meetings that we have been able to accomplish online.
Thought I had someone lined up for the category reduction, but alsa, no. I'm gonna tackle it myself, but need you r help/perspective on a couple of things:
I'm going to try to reduce it down to some happy medium between III's original suggestion (5 categories, closely resembling the old eplaya) and the current one, heavily leaning towards III's.
1) As I'm re-grouping threads, should I worry about all placing of them, or would it be cool to only include the currently active (or very recently inactive, like within a month) in the new design, and move everyting else into an 8/03-11/03 archive?
2) As I have to group exisitng threads together I'm concerned with wildly disconcerting people. I will, of course, notify everyone before it happens, and spell out where each thread will end up. (I'm afraid it will be too counter-productive to ask for feedback beyond the feedback threads, but I will run it by you guys before we settle on a new architecture. If only a couple of folks flip, we'll be in good shape.).
What else can I do to ease the transition?
