Feedback and authorship

Feedback and authorship

Once you start flipping through articles, it's difficult to find the
feedback mechanism.  I'm not certain that I prefer comments over mailing
lists (my two cents pertaining to Martin's request on an earlier thread),
but it would be nice if the feedback option was more apparent.  A direct
link to the librelist web archives might also be handy.

Also, you make a lot of references in the project's meta data about it
being *your* project, but there is no author information (or I couldn't
find it?).

These are non-critical concerns when it comes to the actual content, but I
wanted to share my reactions.  Generally, I'm liking the project so far,
and appreciative of your work in the area.

Ah! That's probably a good idea. I'll do that. Maybe I should make a
librelist thread about each post, and then link to that posts's thread
at the bottom?

Complete and utter oversight on my part. I was so focused on launching
that I have a lot of marketing refinements to do. I want to balance
that with actually writing content, however.

It's very much appreciated. When you're so close to something, it's
quite easy to overlook trivial things.

This could work well. Initially it seems like it could get pretty cluttered
as the project grows. But after a little more thought, I think per page
feedback could be manageable within a thread, and non-page-specific data
would get its own thread by default. Anyway, I think something to this
effect is definitely worth a shot.

Keep it up.
