Craig, if you have specific issues w/ the site, there is a
getsatisfaction.com site. You can get to there by going to "Help" from the
secondary navigation under discussion.

As for how else you can help.

sliders & sparklines combined

Nice use of AJAX. I like this except that it is very low on the page,
and the page scrolls down thus you can't change parameters and see
the change dynamically. Flash/Flex would allow you to do this very
easily. Without instructions (unless it's clear in Swedish) of some
sort - verbal or visual - it can be a tad confusing. I like the bars
(available results) above the slider.

Aesthetic craft (was "Elements of InteractionDesign")

When you write "aesthetics of use", I think of the difference in "feel"
between, say, using Flickr and using Amazon.com. The amount of information
per interface, the complexity, density, and compartmentalization of
affordances, the difference in mental models and motivations. Is this what
you mean?
