    dear @Delicious or #delicious or whatever: why did you swap the URL and title fields?

  2. @joshu Page title is typically displayed above/before an URL in most applications, and of the two, is also most likely to see an edit.

  3. @Delicious but tags is even more likely to see an edit. so why put the unused field between the two? what about the greyed out url field?

  4. @joshu This is why Tags gets cursor focus. Title and URL for reference and then the fields needed to aid retrieval later.

    @joshu Also, while relatively low, we still see edits to the URL for param removal etc. Save/Edit needs to allow URL tweaking.

  5. @Delicious right. so title is two shift-tabs away instead of one now. you know we originally tried this first, users seemed to mine better.

    @Delicious Yes. The d2 design had a greyed out URL that turned into a form field when clicked on. Metrics showed it was rarely edited.

    I can't believe I'm arguing with @Delicious on design decisions. No different from when I was at Yahoo, I guess.
