Hey, welcome to the first paid-members-only survey. I'll be using this a lot more often from here on out to figure out what everybody wants us to work on, and rate our performance in your eyes. Since you're the one paying to use LiveJournal, your decision matters the most.

Rate the following features on a scale from 1-10. The number should express how interested you are in further development/completion of the feature, or for features that don't exist yet, how interested you are in seeing it developed. Polling. More documentation, a poll creator/editor, perhaps?

WAP is a feature available on some mobile phones and other wireless devices which allows the phone to access certain services on "the web". All LiveJournal needs to do to support it is provide content in a slightly different format in addition to the format it supplies it in now. Having said that, given the size and nature of LiveJournal, this will likely be quite a time-consuming task.

martmart could have also said that it is an anagram for Wireless Application Protocol.
It's one thing to know what it is, and a totally different thing to know what it stands for.
