It's so annoying trying to find _anything_ nowdays, used to be a search for something simple and tea related like 'darjeeling' would turn up something useful, now it's just a bunch of chatter about daily life and oh I drank some darjeeling and blah blah unrelated to tea. Like, who really cares to read that when you are searching for information about darjeeling? Is there any way to exclude the whole daily cup subforum from the site search? My internet is getting clogged, first the bloggers, now this.
2) Make a more intelligent paginator.
That is a UI issue, I can't remember the last time I wrote a paginator that didn't have a variable window, auto-focusing 'lumping' mechanism, ie give n links, the end links are more granular an the middle are in larger lumps, and the 'focus/magnification' follows the active page.
example, to start:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 [6-10], [11-20], [21-30], [31-35], 36, 37, 38, 39, 40
and if you are on page 30....
[1-10], [11-20], [21-26], 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, [33-35], [36-40]
