1. Control-Click a link button
2. the linked page in a new tab
2. the button appears to be clicked but there's no response (no new tab; the required page does not appear).
* Firefox 89
* FreeBSD 14.0-CURRENT.
* use normal linked texts, not button-links.
The name of each list appears, in a FreeBSD shade of red, at the beginning of each row.
It's a shade of red that's commonly associated with links (compare with the FreeBSD home page, with red links here in Bugzilla for FreeBSD, and so on).
At the beginning of the line: why not make the red link-like text an actual link? (To the primary archive for the list).
Then you can have an unsubscribe link (need not be a button) at the _end_ of the line.
A change that is doable, the red (name of the ml becomes a link to to the subscription page which has all the information about the ml including subscription and we leave a archive button on the right? (and only the archive button? what do you think?)
Thanks. Annoyances, if I'm honest (no offence intended):
* buttons, in general, where links would suffice
* I can't _easily_ step from (for example) a starting point of
to a shortlist of time periods
– keyword, short.
The (single) step away from a single e-mail, to the _long_ list of all e-mails _from all time_ (!) is overwhelming, which is, I know, off-topic from the index page, but honestly it's difficult for me to think coherently about the index page UX, when I feel repeatedly thrown by the UX elsewhere.
Being thrown about makes me intolerant of anything else that doesn't work (or doesn't work as expected), and the buttons simply do not work with e.g. Control-Click.

> all e-mails _from all time_
Looking more closely, now I see that it's not all time, but for reasons that I shouldn't go into here, it feels like all time.
I sound like someone who's averse to change, which I'm not.
Please, where might be a good place to quietly discuss the UX in general? Somewhere in IRC, maybe?
Improvements noted, with thanks …
