What feature will Manifold "unlaunch" next?
Resolved
Just as important as features we launch, are the things we "unlaunch". Removing features gives us breathing room to work on new ideas, or rethink the implementation of something we thought was a good idea but in practice has been less good than anticipated. Example of things we've unlaunched: - Loans - Algorithmic Feed - Folds/Communities - Variable market subsidies, initial probability choices - Numeric Markets v0 Upgrades/improvements don't count for this market; roughly, the entire feature has to be missing for a while.

Not sure what went away first? Chats in Groups? Tags? Creator trading fee?
Oh, we also have "Group chats" as an answer, not sure which one was first.

Austin avatar

@MartinRandall I think tags first, before chats in groups and the creator trading fee.

Uh, didn't even realize group chats were gone!

Creator trading fee

This is the 10% fee for trading against the AMM that goes to the market creator. Arguably obsoleted by the unique bettor bonus and the referral bonus. I still think AMM liquidity providers should get a fee.

I maintain that if multichoice markets were just a bunch of independent YES/NO markets like they are on PredictIt, it would probably simplify things a lot on the backend. Also, issues where someone creates an option to the effect of "not this option or this option" make the free response markets awkward.

Austin said in general comments: 'Tentatively I'm not going to count "Categories", because those are already on the way out in place of Groups'

@SirSalty do you mean the new large groups or categories in general?

@MartinRandall I should have read the whole description, I was betting they'd get replaced with a new version.
Long term markets

Eg, maybe a max time of one year, or one quarter.
Unique bettor market subsidy
MartinRandall avatar
I think this is undervalued, given that loans and free markets both got cut.

@Austin I could see you removing these because of regulatory issues with people selling mana, is that the thought here?

I think these are filling a niche and it'd be awkward to remove them without an alternative (in which case it would be an improvement and not resolve the market). Surprised this went up to 25%.
