WordPress Room for Improvement

I think that WordPress is too cool in its contact. If somebody works well in that medium then it would be really helpful for a community and for themselves. I don't know how to plug them into using it well. I don't know where someone goes from zero to having something up, and then incrementally learning how to do it.

I think it would be good if WordPress maybe had a place where people could go to and say, "Hi, I'm an artist. I like writing poetry related to my art. Is there anyone who uses WordPress for this?" or "Hi, I'm working in the health sector, and I'm working on change and transformation work. I would like to talk about it, has anyone else done that?", or "Hello, I'm writing a book. I would like to use WordPress as a way of making sure that I get three hours work done every day and write 300 words". I think that's what people are using WordPress for in these situations.

I would like to have the ability to customize the whole WordPress installation. WordPress comes with a number of core features. I would love to be able to remove those I'm not using at the moment because sometimes you just want to make a simple site or you know that you are going to be using very specific features. You may not not a lot of tabs or just want your clients to be able to see a very few tabs. 

Security is a real problem. WordPress should work on improving their security so users do not have to worry about it. Hackers often tend to target WordPress.

I would recommend dumping the Gutenberg interface and going back to the classic editor.  I understand the need for using BLOCKS to develop a page.  However, I would recommend taking a long hard look at Elementor and Elementor Pro as when it comes to developing a website, I have found using Elementor to be much more intuitive than using the Gutenberg interface.
