Along with big design changes, new features include:
Searching on the platform will show results live as you type your query. See the titles and details about the post as you search, without having to visit new pages to find what you’re looking for.
Want to bring someone’s attention to the thread? Throw an @ before their username to notify them. An email will be sent to the user to alert them of the notification.
Hover over the amount of “likes” a thread has received to see who gave it. We love being able to see who’s being helpful, and adding a thumbs up to a good thread is a great way to highlight the great posts.
There is now a full range of emoticons now to add fun emphasis to your threads. In addition to other BBCode features like adding colors to your text, emoticons are a good way to add a little character to what you’re trying to say.
Hover over the avatar of a user and you’ll see a profile card with some user details, showing the basics of their activity as a preview to loading their full profile.
We’re looking forward to hearing what you think of these changes when they go live in the near future. Feel free to comment in the Community Feedback board when the changes are available.
