I love wordpress, I use it all the time for a variety of projects. The people who have put it together and those who contribute are awesome. Good job.
One feature that I like has been the wordpress dashboard which displays a variety of important news you may be interested in. For the most part, the links displayed in the dashboard are reasonably informative. However, I really really do not like the newest set of links that are showing up the the dashboard — ‘Dougal Campbell: links for 2006-03-XX.’
First of all why should I care what Dougal thinks is newsworthy? And lets be frank, who cares that he used to play the trumpet? Please remove superfluous information about Dougals former life as a trumpeter out of my wordpress dashboard.
What happens when you pollute formerly (somewhat) useful information with these useless links is that users like myself will completely ignore the dashboard and its associated links — even the important ones.
If you are going to force users to display links in their wordpress dashboard, at least make the links important.
