What should Manifold do to improve the new homepage?
Resolved
MANY

Manifold has just launched a new homepage designed to make it easier to browse relevant markets across a variety of categories.

What can we do to improve the design or user experience of the homepage?

I will resolve this market by choosing the most helpful 1-5 answers one week from now, weighted by my subjective sense of helpfulness/impactfulness. I value precise and explicit suggestions ("change the font to X") over more general and vague suggestions, even if correct ("improve the font").

If you've bet within the last 24 hours, instead of looking at default parameters, look to see if market has moved a significant % since ur last trade on it (compare live prob to prob ur trade moved the prob to).

@LudwigBald FYI u can disable notifications for daily loans in the settings tab on the notification page.

Provide a setting for people to filter certain keywords or groups out of the home page.

@Yev ah, got it - no problem if it's disqualified then

@AndyMartin That's exactly my point. It's a global feature that affects the entire site, not just the new home page.

@SneakySly +1, ideally once you "hide"/"mark as not interested" a market, it would not show up in any context (home page, search, marking listing page for a group, etc)

@SG What do you all think about this one? Do you like being able to manually arrange groups on the homepage? Or would you prefer it to be automatic?

@Yev It should be something you can do from the homepage, similar to hiding groups.

Also I don't want to have my closed groups (where I'm the owner and the only member) on the home page, but if I unfollow them I won't be able to add markets to them.

IMHO there is an intermediate state of "I'm kinda interested in this, but not enough to take up space on my home page".

An option to randomly shuffle the groups every time you go to the home page
Yev avatar

@Yev I usually don't scroll far enough to see more than a few groups.

@AndyMartin While it would be a great feature, I'm not sure what it has to do with the new homepage.

@MichaelWheatley You could give it a picture, or display the graph.

Following another user doesn't seem to do anything at the moment. A feed of recent actions from the people you follow could be interesting, e.g.

  • X bought M$50 of YES on this market

  • Y commented on this other market

  • Z followed W

  • etc.

@MichaelWheatley There was some talk about this in the Notion discussion. It sure is nice to look at something other than text occasionally.
