Planned feature. Stay tuned.

We're prioritizing features first that get people to come to the website, versus ones aimed at getting people to not leave, although we'll get to those too in time. Ultimately, there are vastly more people who would love using steemit.com who have never heard of us, versus people who come here, sign up, and then run away screaming because of NSFW (where do you work, anyway?!) content.

This comment by you begs the question. Are you trying to actually build a platform that allows people to communicate , share information and news, or are you simply wanting to make another facebook, instagram or twitter? if you are trying to build the latter versus the former. You probably are making a bad business decision.

What makes steemit attractive to a large segment of people is communicatinng ideas and information, and for some being able to do so without fear of reprisals or REAL censorship.

Users down voting a "here I am haters" "look at me shake my booty" post is the furthest thing from censorship.

We are intending to do both, although if we build a mass-market platform for communication and sharing on the Steem Blockchain, even with a tremendous amount of users it will never be "another facebook, instagram or twitter" as those are centralized services.

We intend to build the first decentralized social media community with widespread adoption. There will be excellent tools (already in the planning stages right now) for various people to tailor their viewing experience to their own taste, or to subscribe to the moderation opinions of other people of their choosing. All of the data will be in the blockchain, and some users will opt for the firehose. Some users will opt for a moderated experience. Some users will use other sites besides steemit.com with their own opinions and interfaces (but backed by the same blockchain and platform and content and community).

Stay tuned. 2017 has a lot in store for this site and the community.

Hey Sneak. Is there some sort of central repository for ideas, tweaks etc? A tag we use? I know 'suggestion' is one, but is there a more formal list?

@timcliff maintains one, I think.

The stuff that we have determined to be priorities will be published in our official roadmap this month; I would advise reading that first to see where potential improvements might fit in.

The long and the short of it is that our team is pretty much 100% booked for 2017 with our plan, and stuff probably is going to go on the back burner unless it fits into our primary objectives (which are almost 100% in service of obtaining and retaining 10-50x more users than we have now).

Of course. There are hundreds of directions we could go and thousands of cheerleaders for each one.
I don't mind if it's a long queue, as long as no gold slips through the cracks.
I'll have a look at @timcliff. Cheers.
