This web site flows extremely well. Once we get accustomed, we can use it like crazy. A suggestion: The meat here (or the corn here) is the Contribute section, but the basic interface is the Forum Index. And the rest is wonderful, but new users may not understand.
So, I wonder if you might include the category of each post in the Forum Index. That way, people who are new to the site would see that this post comes from Soapbox, and they would know that this is just procedure, not meat (just egg, not corn).
To illustrate, in Forum Index, this post could have the title “Tweaks, maybe? [Soapbox].” And perhaps the “Contribute” posts could be in exciting red, while the rest (including this post) would be in boring blue or black.
I have made maybe six posts or comments today, but three of my posts have been procedural, or tour-guide-ish. Posters who want eggcorns rather than baloney should know what to see, and what to ignore.
