I'll take some blame for that one too. In fact, I think we were all culpable. They looked great, they just didn't function well at all. There's nothing more simple than a straight up "list". I wonder if 9 months from now we will be looking at the current version nostalgically too?
At first I thought you meant from the last few months, since a majority of the "true reddit" migrants of backed off, but boy was I wrong. This is really interesting. I may not have been here when the hubwheel was introduced, but I plan to be here for whatever comes next and beyond.
It sure has changed a lot. Remember the brief "columns" experiment? We were so excited about it and it fell flat on its face. It's been a great learning experience. mk at some point you should post the evolution in screen shots. I'd love to see that.
