Not reinventing the wheel
I am probably not the first to seek these features. Do you know if these features or add-ons have already been done, or do I need to take a stab at them?
- Show top contributors in the sidebar (using a score that gives weight to more recent posts)
- Display site/category/forum/thread descriptions in the sidebar
- Unfurl posted links (as seen on Slack, LinkedIn, etc.)
Also, do you have a view on why these common features are not bundled with Vanilla?
