I'm curious to know: What elements do you like in a fanfic site? I realize we're all pretty much used to reading on LJ these days, but think back to the days of yore. Or tell me what you did on your own site that you liked.
Right now, fandoms are categories and pairings are tags. I was able to wrap my head around the new taxonomy system enough to customize the tag display, so I can show only the pairings within a particular fandom. I've got the Recent Stories section and, of course, the Yearly Archives. Story summaries show fandom, pairing, rating, and wordcount. And I think I've even got the damn threaded comments working.
What makes a fic site useful and readable for you?
