General feedback

  • Two at cs.wiki people expressed a preference for the Subscribe / Unsubscribe affordance to appear within the existing [ edit ] link "grouping"

UPDATE
I'm going to end up posting this early next week.

Reason: I've got everything ready. Although, I don't want to post the prototype and invitation for feedback now and risk volunteers being without support from us for three days.[i]


i. 27- and 28-March are weekend days. And then 29-March (Monday) is a staff holiday.

@ppelberg were there any discoverability or usability concerns identified in addition to the four that are currently listed in the "Issues" table over in the Task Description?
