Does the directory currently have a kind of ‘meh’ UX? Yes. Yes it does. We know it. We know search is chancy at best, and people (especially developers) get grumbly when they can’t find what they want.
Well. Here’s your chance to step up and help us fix it.
The tl;dr here is @mapk had some tasks for he asked people to run through to try and report on. Using that information, we’ll figure out what has to be changed, what’s going to have to be lived with, and what can and cannot be improved.
But it won’t get better without YOUR help.
So if you care about the usability of the Plugin Directory, please help. Speak up and try the tests yourself. Figure out what’s broken and speak up on it. We need to know.
