Make the selection more user-friendly. It seems that at least some of us have found it difficult to post within the right category.
It can be confusing (it’s actually redundant) to have chosen a category on the right-side panel, only to have to choose it AGAIN just before posting.
If there is a design-related reason for this issue, it would be good to know it, if you don’t mind explaining it to a “newbie.”
By the way…it might be good to give the option to “Post in: …” even WHEN the error message comes up saying the person didn’t choose a category (that is, if the current design isn’t changed). It would save the trouble of risking loosing (or the fear of having lost) what was already typed.
Have a good one.
