    I hotlist stuff to read later sometimes, but I need more encouragement to actually read it. The backlog is too long! Could the link to one's own hotlist be put in a place that's easier to get to/more prominent? Maybe next to the "stream" link in the right column... I guess I could just bookmark it, but, y'know, lazy.

      But you could try submitting a suggestion to the HelpDesk.

      One thing I am loving these days, though, is Amazon's Send to Kindle browser button. It allows me to send long articles to my Kindle, which means I have them available at a time I know I want to read something longer. Otherwise, they usually either sit in a tab or bookmark, unread. But when I grab my Kindle (or phone), I'm often in the mood for just those sorts of pieces.

        sometimes for me that means weeks later!

        I also like seeing all recent diaries old-school blog style. Got that link from ek hornbeck or somebody; doesn't appear as a clickable link on the site anywhere I've seen.

        I can understand why y'all have it as just the titles with mouseover intro text, given that the dK4 idea is to promote a longer period of "freshness" for posts and to not let things scroll off into oblivion too quickly. But if I'm looking for that dead tree newspaper-stytle experience of running across things in which I might be interested that I didn't expect, it's nice to see full posts. (Also, titles and intro text can be inadequate or even misleading...)

      there are never enough places to put everything and create clarity. If we put hotlist there, where would we put the favorite authors link? Etc.

        Although I finally bookmarked the hotlist for myself, heh. And keeping a lid on clutter is important, I know.
