Made some mostly under-the-hood changes to The Library today:

  • Changed rating system from 0–5 stars to a simpler thumbs up/thumbs down system. I found I was arbitrarily giving things star ratings, and not taking it seriously. I believe a thumbs up/thumbs down system is much easier for me to assign ratings to media I consume when I ask myself "did I enjoy this?"
  • Changed how the CMS organizes media types. I gave Media Types its own collection, the benefit of doing it this way is I no longer have to make design changes multiple times because each Media Type's page shares a design template.
