I'm excited about letting users write CSS in apps and this morning I tried to write down why: https://writing.grantcuster.com/posts/2022-05-22-css-as-end/

I keep bouncing off ideas for the next Constraint Systems thing, this isn't quite it... but maybe near.
Any edits create a new 'version'. Page creator gets to pick which version is pinned (version seen by default when you visit the page). Edits by page creator are pinned by default...
If I wanted to make a site (or an internet) where anyone could create a page and every page was editable. What are the main editing models I could use?
- page creator has to approve edits (probably more system than I want to create)
- version control so you can go back through each version of a page (doable but I bet people rarely go back much)
- edits automatically create a new page (fork). maybe my top pick but new forks aren't necessarily discoverable.
Anything else I should be looking at?
