There is no way of editing a feed's URL. So if a feed changes URL, I have to unsubscribe (which, if the feed was in several categories, means spending tedious minutes unselecting them all) then I have to create a new subscription and remember all the categories it was in and readd them all.

The new(ish) way of organising collections with the "Follow/Edit" button is annoying and a step backwards. The UX person who came up with the idea forgot to take into account that people have feeds in multiple categories.

On the desktop, if I want to move a feed from a collection to another, I have to click on the "Following" button (which becomes "Edit"), scroll down to the new category, select the new category, then the menu closes, then I need to click on "Following again, scroll down to the old category, select the old category. And so on for every new / old category. Too many steps. Please keep the menu open until I am finished with it. Better still would be a grid of checkboxes / buttons so I can see all the collections in one go.

Thanks.

A few feeds from reddit are not being updated at all, while others are. Not entirely clear why

For example:
http://www.reddit.com/r/css.rss (last entry from 31d ago - I wasn't even subscribed then. If you view the RSS file outside of feedly you can see that the latest entry is from 12h ago)
https://www.reddit.com/r/vuejs/.rss (last entry from 15d ago - again, before I subscribed)
http://www.reddit.com/r/Frontend/.rss (last entry from 10d ago)

Others get updated only once a day or so
https://www.reddit.com/r/Angular2/.rss


Whereas others seem updated more regularly
http://www.reddit.com/r/javascript/.rss
http://www.reddit.com/r/node/.rss

It looks like whatever algorithm you choose to decide how often to up update a feed is failing.

After 2.5 years, I have cut up all my non-precious books, fed them through a scanner, and thrown away the organic data material. Thanks to that we can get rid of two bookshelves, and I am not missing the physical objects at all.

Marijn Haverbeke, the author and maintainer of Eloquent JavaScript, has created Tern,  a nice editor which is very good at understanding JS and providing auto complete and definitions ( demo here http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/tern-intelligent-javascript-editing )

If he gets enough donations he'll integrate it as a plugin with two text editors - you can vote for which ones. Sublime's winning, but you never know
If you like it, and want to make sure it is  Sublime, you can vote here http://ternjs.net/vote.html (or even donate).
