🏠 back to Observable

suggestions on likes & trending

A few minor suggestions, that I think would be more comfortable:

  • maybe the Likes link (@user?tab=likes) could be moved from the user menu to the left-hand side list, after Notebooks, Collections, Suggestions. As it’s hidden away in the user profile menu, I had almost forgotten it existed
  • it would be nice to have our likes added to the activity menu (you have liked…)
  • conversely, it would be nice to be able to filter out likes (and likes received) from the activity menu
  • rather than spend time re-reading the 120 notebooks selection in /trending, I would definitely use a /trending/rss feed

Thanks for the thoughtful suggestions @Fil — I’ve opened a couple of tickets.

Do note that you can get to your likes page from observablehq.com/likes if you want to get there from the URL bar.

people (me included) can’t seem to find it where it is currently, see

Does this refer to slack.com? Is there a public chat channnel discussion related to Observable? Is that publicized anywhere?

Or maybe https://d3js.slack.com/ ? (I’ve never looked in there.)

If someone wants to start a discussion group involving a somewhat diverse range of topics let me recommend https://zulipchat.com/ as an alternative.

Yes sorry, I meant the #observable channel on the d3js slack.

To file in the “baby steps” category — we’ve pushed an update that moves the Likes link into the left-hand navigation, as you suggest. Hopefully it’ll be easier to find now.
