Things that could make 'The Verge' an even better site.

Firstly I want a notification system, where I get a +1 or +2 beside my name on the top bar every time I get a reply. That way I don't have to go into my profile to check whether I've got a reply to one of my comments.

Secondly, I want an editing system for comments, because I half the time end up with errors in my comments, and it bugs me that I can't do anything about it.

Finally, a simplified view of the homepage, while I love the look of the normal homepage, I just wish their was a way of switching it to just a list of articles in the middle and the Quick reads, reviews and videos on the sides of it.

These are my opinions, so don't hate me. So, can anyone else think of anything else that could improve the site?
