Description SJ 2005-02-11 19:34:45 UTC
The most regular frustration I have with the interface is my inability to
quickly and simply customize the links in the sidebar.  It would be very useful
to be able to set a collection of sidebar links via user preferences, and even
modify the default set of sidebar links.

Not fun: having to click back and forth to one's own user page to access such
links, and being forced to choose between having an informative user page
*about* the user, and having a page with lots of useful links within the first

Maybe you should use your browser bookmark :)
Comment 2 SJ 2005-11-12 13:42:30 UTC
That's not very user-friendly.  If you want to be 
that way about it, why not get rid of all sidebar 
links?  There are currently 15 of them, taking up 
screen space on every page I view... and I use 
fewer than a third of them.

"Having to scroll through my bookmarks" to visit 
frequent links is also not fun (:  The code-free 
alternative isn't to use bookmarks, but to edit my 
own CSS file -- however, considering the # of 
active editors who have their own private "useful 
links" wiki-template, and don't know how to hack up 
CSS, I am sure that this would be a well-received
