I added another slashdot habit. I unchecked the willing to moderate option. I wasn't really using it for anything constructive, and I'd rather not be part of that gruesome lot anyway.
As for wishes, I'd like the ability to remove Anonymous Cowards from posting in my journal, and "new" users. Limiting it to just "friends" is *way* too restrictive. And, a repeat, I want rejected stories to be submittable to my journal, so I don't have to retype. Or even a more radical idea. Make submissions be journal entries that can be submitted to the front page. That would remove "First Posts" wouldn't it? It would also give your friends the first bite. And, give the slashdot submitters more to look at, comment-wise, when deciding what to post.
I have found myself reading almost nobody's journal entries. I've read just a couple that seemed interesting. I also enjoy that. I used to really skim an entry. Now, the rare time I find the title interesting, I have more time and interest to actually read the entry.
As for titles. I think they should be written *after* the entry. That way, it'll desribe what's there, rather than what is intended to be there. I find myself re-writing title's when the intended main point became a side-point. Live and learn.
