When I read through a Maniphest task to attempt to understand it better (the original plan, the blind alleys / rejected ideas, the discussion along the way, eventually the current status), as someone who is not necessarily involved in it, I am currently swamped in auxiliary information. The amount of information I'd consider extraneous makes it very difficult to see the useful bits, either because you skim too hard, spend too much time on it because you're not skimming, or simply lose the will to live.
- 19 people subscribed themselves
- 8 people awarded tokens at the same time as subscribing themselves, so requiring double the visual real estate to add an AOL
- it was mentioned in 6 other tasks (this is actually potentially useful, but gets lost in the noise if you're trying to skim)
On a 3200x1800 display, with Chrome in full screen, this is 1.8 screens' worth of pixels.
Obviously there is use for this information (someone subscribes then later unsubscribes: did they see a particular comment? the transaction log will tell you), but collapsing this in some way by default would be nice. Thanks.
