(I hope it’s acceptable to post this in the Meta section; if not, the mods can move it to my personal blog.)

GreaterWrong.com (which is an alternative way to browse the new LessWrong) has been adding some new features and enhancements—here’s some of the stuff we’ve got now:

As always, please let us know if you’re having any problems with the site, bugs, etc. (If you do report bugs or problems, please include your browser, version, and operating system!)

This is appropriate and great.

It seems the "all" page has no indication of whether a post is frontpage/featured/user blog, and doesn't include meta posts. Would you be open to adding those? I think those would cause me to switch, I really like GW in general.

(Though I do also like the reading times given on LW.com, and the read/unread status indication.)

We do indeed plan to add icons that indicate whether a post is frontpage/featured/personal-blog, yes—it’s on the to-do list!

As for including Meta posts in “All” view—that’s a good point. I had thought that LW didn’t include Meta in Daily, but I see that’s not true (or no longer true)? We’d like to mirror the organization of Less Wrong, in this regard… LW admins, could you comment on this? I’m not sure I quite get how the LW frontpage is currently organized (there’ve been changes recently, haven’t there?)—what’s the intended structure?
