Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... you say:
Others have expressed their interest in creating sections but technical implications have been misjudged. The improvement wouldn't justify the workload.

It may be that the balance of the trade-off is more specific to a particular vision of creating sections than to sections in general.

To repeat my proposal:
(1) When people rec a diary, they specify which section they are rec'ing it for

(2) "Sectional" reclists are generated using the same algorithm as the reclist, except filtered by type of rec

(3) The "diaries" selection on the top bar turns into a drop down menu:

  • recent diaries
  • recommended diaries
  • current affairs
  • policy briefs
  • background briefing
  • ET community

... f'rinstance, where the last four are the section options people have to choose from.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
