I wanted Oneslate because all other forum software was severely lacking in several areas. Mainly, the arrangement of content in status quo forum software meant that people could efficiently communicate. To fix the signal/noise problem, Oneslate incorporates several changes from the norm. Nodes in Oneslate are atomic, so that once you see a node on in one context and rate it, it is color-coded for rapid visual interpretation as already having been assessed. Nodes in Oneslate can be reused anywhere that they fit, so the color-coding helps track content status across contexts. Node navigation in Oneslate is not tied strongly to chronology or some other gravity; rather, Oneslate nodes prefer to be accessed, discovered, expanded, etc. on the basis of contextual relevancy.
