1. Split subscribe/access. This was my killer app, and I love it; it makes me feel so much more comfortable subscribing to people who look interesting.
2. The commitment to diversity and accessibility. Like when people have brought up concerns in news posts and such, [staff profile] denise and [staff profile] mark have been quick to make corrections/changes/apologies. Some examples that stuck in my mind: (1) being called out on gender-binary language and fixing it right away and (2) early on, when someone said seeing usernames in red in the site scheme was disturbing due to cultural background, they quickly rolled out an alternate site scheme.
3. The much more intuitive site navigation, including the actually-useful navbar.
4. All the little fixes and improvements that are constantly being made.

Lack of ads was a close 6th, but since I use AdBlock, it's more of a principle squee than something that affects my DW experience on a day-to-day basis.

The split subscribe/access this is so awesome about DW. I always felt so intimidated friending people on LJ. Here, I just feel like I'm saying "hi".
