@gauravgupta The front page should start by listing actual entries, not categories. Otherwise, there's no actionable, interesting sounding content immediately accessible.

@joostschuur Point taken.

@gauravgupta @joostschuur This is good advice, my friends and I thought the same
Adam Boulanger@adambmedia
@gauravgupta @joostschuur TOTALLY agree. You have got to ditch this directory structure. Note Product hunt's dating structure: today, yesterday, ... this is enough. Get everything up in a big list and let google suss it out. Don't send users ice-fishing. Second, getting everything in one list will increase the social game aspect of it. Or, imagine a scenario where someone is writing killer tutorials across languages. I want to see that person rise up the lists irrespective of what language their work is in. Third, the directory forces a certain kind of emphasis on languages and a smattering of apis. What if I'm more interested in programming concepts? Recursion, or I'm keeping an eye out for anything DSP related and I don't care what language or api, R, Numpy, Matlab, Python, etc, You're stomping that kind of user with the directory.
