    If everything is featured, then nothing is featured? I'm not sure what the smaller orange tick (or ribbon, or what have you) is adding here.

      Well only five links per day are featured. But I guess I need to make that clearer.

        Ah I see! Yes that isn't clear, perhaps a count of how many links there are per day, or simply showing all of the links for the day rather than putting them behind a "Show more..." link.

        While I'm pointing out quirks, here are another couple of things to add to your list:

        • When viewing the site with a query parameter, as many people are from the link on DN, the category filter is "activated" -- this shouldn't happen unless "?cat=" or "&cat=" is in the query parameters.
        • Sometimes when loading the page there is an initial "Undefined" in the page before anything else renders.
        • The date picker allows you to go infinitely forward/backward in time, rather than being limited to the earliest date of the sidebar.io archive, and the current date.
        • It's possible to select a category that contains no links.
        • There are 58 categories currently, yet we can only see 9 in the sidebar. These are sorted alphabetically, rather than by popularity/number of items, meaning you see the same 9 always.
        • On some days there are duplicate links, where the same link has been submitted by multiple users (see Dropbox Productivity on the screenshot): https://i.imgur.com/S3NVmC2.png
        • The "user profile" pages shouldn't have the 5 featured links at the top (e.g. http://sidebar.io/users/sachagrief)

        Cheers!
