re: What would you like to see implemented on DEV? VIEW POST

I have a couple of usability issues I've been thinking of reporting in github.

When creating/editing an article, on desktop, the "download image" icon is at the bottom of the screen. When you click it, you then have to scroll to the top again to select an image.

I've also noticed that if I edit or delete something, the update isn't propagated everywhere across the site. My impression is that there are separate documents behind the scenes that store the same information, depending on where it is displayed. In particular, deleting something, such as a comment, can take several days. If you click on it or try to interact with it in some way, it will send you to a 404 page, but it's still visible for quite a while. I have a feeling that there is a background process responsible for updating this stuff, but it does seem to be rather slow. I haven't seen this kind of thing on other sites. I don't know how high priority it is, but it would be nice if it were possible for the updates to be more immediate from the user's point of view.

In terms of new features, I'd really like to have more control over the profile page, though I don't have a clear sense of exactly what changes I'd ask for. In general, I'd like to have more control of what is displayed and in what order. I think dev.to has an opportunity with the profile page to create kind of a central calling card for developers, where developers could use it as their main profile for resumes/job applications.
