I like the new system a lot! A feature from the old way that I do miss though is being able to see the number of a category. which I think would maybe help LittleTheremin's conundrum very slightly.
I apologize if this is not a concise description, but I was thinking about it earlier and thought it would be neat to have a counter for how many entries there are once you apply filters.
So for example, click Public Toilet's page and I want to know how many times it has done a major battle, somewhere after I click the filter (perhaps expressed as a fraction in the dropdown for how many entries to show on a page? or perhaps its own icon, small number in the corner, whatever) it would say the total number of entries matching those filters, and then if I wanted to see how many of those are visuals the number would drop again, etc
Always hate to make feature requests, but I do think there's practical applications for this if it seems good! Appreciate everything that you put into making this place happen and keeping it running.
edit: if I should post this in another thread or make it its own post I'll delete the comment, haha
