Rearrange editinfo.bml

Rearrange editinfo.bml

Short, concise description of the idea
The "Edit Userinfo" page is very confusing, cluttered, and not very easy to understand for beginners.

Full description of the idea
I would like to volunteer to rearrange the "Edit Userinfo" page. I had several ideas how it could be done, please let me know what you think:

  • Keep everything on a single page, but restructure.
  • Make one version of the page without all the length explanation, and another with them. Once people know what the options do, they no longer need the explanations, so removing them would make the page easier to overview.
  • Split the whole thing up into two sections: Personal Information, and Journal options. Possibly provide tabs at the top of the page to switch back and forth, possibly add tabs for "Edit Friends" and "Edit Style" too.
  • A combination of the latter and the one before that.
More ideas are of course welcome.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Better "Edit Info" page.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • None I can think of.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • I'd do it, if people want me to.
