Hi, Previously on your profile page there was a box on the right hand side which had links to status updates belonging to others that you had commented on. I cant seem to find a way to view what status's i have commented on except by going through the whole list of updates. Is there a quicker and easier way that i have missed?  Like the new look so far by the way   :)

I don't believe so unfortunately, the profile feed is intended to be the new central hub for all status related information.

Another thing I'm mildly sad about is that there's only room for about 5 status updates now, so they can drop off the bottom rather quickly. I don't know whether the birthdays could be moved down a bit?

There is actually supposed to be 10 but it defaulted back to 5 for some reason, that's it now set to 10 again.

Hey saru another query into the mobile version. Is there anyway to put a drop box for emoticons? I've been memorizing the key strokes for my favorites so its not important. We've never had them so I'm not missing them or anything...

Can you be a little more specific about what you've experienced?  In fact, if you can point to a specific post where you've had the problem it might help to understand exactly what happened.

The mobile version is designed to be as basic as possible to improve compatibility so we can't really add any features like that.

Update:

In-line post editing is now available again, meaning you can edit your post without having to move off the page. This fix also solves the issue that was being reported in which editing a post that was made via the quick reply box was returning people to the first page of a thread all the time.

I got another suggestion: how about a autorefresh function on the forum index? That way you could see at a glance if something is happening and really is pretty easy to program.

Auto refreshing web pages are generally a bad idea except in a few special circumstances like live blogs, webcasts etc.

Like system
We've had a few requests for this and it's finally coming - members will have the option to 'like' individual forum posts which gives you the opportunity to give a post the thumbs up without needing to post a direct response. The total number of 'likes' your posts receive is also counted up and displayed in your profile, a new tab will be available to view all the 'likes' you have given or received and on which posts. It is not possible to negatively rate a post which means that this system is reserved purely for giving recognition to quality posts and contributions.


No punishments only awards. Now thats the system.

For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy..."
