Nairaland has passed fad stage and has bcom a staple , it should therefore increase in usability features as it grows on.
Some of ths features may exist but i'm not aware they re publicly accessible.

1. A robust api
any site with significant constant traffic has avenues for programmatic access. With nL it's overdue.
Logging to make a submission/view a post/check 4 new post should long have automated alternatives , even Google with its ultra easy interface has a search API.
Rule: if its automatable automate it.
2. More search/profiling functions
search by highest/x responses/post
,
search by highest/x views
,
views/ response statistics,
section activity statistics .Section with most post/views cud interest som new comer or one who wants to know where crowd is at.

still more on the missing aspects stuff. Nairaland developer team please look into this things to make nairaland more intuitive to use. .) reply at a particlar posters box . All replies for now are linear and occur at the bottom i.e they're queued reference to poster is done using an '@' . Problem is poster can not see replies made many many boxes down the queue! Replying to a particular poster years months weeks later is almost impossible or discouraging cuz at that time there may be a wedge of so many posts in btween. This kind of system is implemented on hackerNews .really convenient.

especially in the programming section, that would be very welcomed indeed.
