So, the Places menu has been compressed in a way that people seem to tolerate. (I haven't received any boxes of flaming Starveling Cat poo yet, at least.)
Now I'm looking at the Stories menu and I'm not sure what to do. Part of why it is bothering me is that my characters are currently not in any of the stories currently in the list, thus defeating the purpose of the menu. And the Other Stories page isn't that well organized, either. It's marginally faster for me to use the Search function.
The dozens of stories in the game can't be classified easily. (Unlike, say, Ventures which are at least tied to a major Quality.) Or, at least I haven't found an easy way. Not that that's a bad thing — I like that little Stories pop up in unexpected places — but not having any easy taxonomy makes it difficult to come up with a reasonably efficient menu.
(The Story page needs to be alphabetized and cleaned up, at least, if no other way to organize it is found.)
