I would not recommend summoning me into these sorts of threads, I’m notorious for what I do to them…
This one seems probably safe as a general concept. While my focus is fairly exclusively on Next in terms of content or promoting content, I have to think of it in the context of all the other stories too and making sure it doesn’t interfere with their promotion, so I do have to think about it. Plus it was a portion of my former job and the new person in that role works on the same team and yaddy yaddy.
Anyways the version in my head stems from walking into an Indigo bookstore here, where inside the door were three shelves:
Something similar to that in order to grant more space to equal groups is important to me. Would love to see those sorts of spaces in play. We have some of the pieces in place and other people have different opinions and ideas too so we’ll see what happens.
Otherwise there’s a concept from the book Happy City that has a long name that I never remember and only appears once in the book so I’ll never find it again. Real shame. It comes from transit, it’s a concept in which there should be multiple solutions to the same problem, and that no one solution should eliminate the possibility of the others. For example, if you design a city for cars, you make it virtually impossible to walk, very hard to bike, and not even that great for buses, so you shouldn’t do that.
There’s some similar things we can do with Wattpad where even though less people use a pathway to discover content, they should still have the option if they do want to because those who do dig deeper should be able to. Or you should be able to walk around Wattpad if you want, you don’t just have to take the car.
That’s my opinion on content management at least. There’s others. We’ll see what the confluence brings
