Currently, there are four preference filters available in the Control Panel interfaces: "Basic", "Advanced", "Experimental" and "Unavailable".
As a user new to Tiki, I have on several occasions noted features that looked interesting, but which I have not enabled as I have subsequently found it is planned to deprecate them. In some cases this was obvious (e.g. a 'warning' icon with the deprecation message on hover next to the feature checkbox), in others it wasn't (i.e. I only found out about it from doc.t.o or related places).
On the assumption that it will help with planned deprecations if new installations don't enable and start using deprecated features, I would propose that a "Deprecated" preference filter be added, that relevant controls be assigned to it, and that it be disabled by default in new installations.
I understand the criteria for such might be controversial (indeed, I hope I'm not reigniting a heated discussion by posting this!) and so would understand if this is WONTFIXED. I also recognise that it is less appropriate for a new user to suggest criteria here than for those that have had Tiki installations for some time and/or are directly involved in development, which is why I haven't listed any in this initial report.

Unable to connect to show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is currently under maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Unable to get information from show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tikiwiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tikiwiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tikiwiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tikiwiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tikiwiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
