I’ve just finished my tribute page and have started into my personal portfolio. In both cases I have encountered an issue that I believe is best addressed here in meta.
The issue is how much effort we should put into “fiddling with formatting.”
On the one hand, I personally think it’s very important to stay focused on “requirements.” Formatting in particular can consume limitless quantities of time while we try one or another thing.
On the other hand, people being the creatures they are, frequently have a tendency to just look at the shiny pictures w/o thinking harder about what they’re actually seeing. IMHO, software that meets the requirements w/o talking to any unstated requirements, is better than software that has extra things in it.
That said, I’d like to suggest that the problem statements be tweaked to more clearly address this issue. Perhaps make it clear that formatting is optional, or somehow specify what formatting is required.
