Thanks to everyone who participated in the Forum Suggestions topic. Here's a bunch of updates that just got deployed. Feel free to keep posting in the forum suggestions topic as I'll be watching it.

  • Updated the header on the top of topics to take up less space, pagination easier find
  • Editing, posting new reply will take you to the post scrolled to it's page/position in topic
  • Add a link to go back to topic when viewing top level post on permalink page
  • Topics with multiple pages have a Last post link below their titles
  • The post date is now a link in the last post section of topic list that goes directly to the post
  • Clicking topic title in main community page will take you to that post directly if you've viewed topic before
  • Editing/posting a reply now has a header that tells you the topic/category you're in
  • Nested replies don't indent as much to fit more
  • Visited topics have a different link color in the topic list of a category
  • Fixed typo in rules

whoa not something mentioned here, but it looks like everyone has a page thats all about their forum activity, separate from their creator page? thats cool as heck

yeah sneaking in new stuff, will post about the next round of changes soon

Amazing things just got amazing-er!

Just some little things about "Last topic" listing in the front page of forum. First of all, column name says "Last topic", but it displays "Last reply". Other thing... in the specific forum listing last post time is active, but in front page link is on the "last topic" title. IMHO, it would be less confusing & more consistent if link titles would redirect to the thread, but last reply date would point to... well... last reply.

It's the last updated topic, and link to where in that topic it was updated. Not sure if either copy is particularly specific.

The "Last topic" title only goes to the last reply if you've been to that topic before. I tried to make some assumptions about where someone would want to go. If you're on the topic list then clicking the title would mean just going into the topic. But clicking in through last reply on the main list, your preferred action is probably to go to where the last update was.

A great bunch of updates! Thanks for those. I also really like the unmentioned forum profile that everybody has now! ;)

Aweeeeesome.

what's up, folks? we haven't pushed out a big chunk of updates yet, but there's a shiny new music forum that can now be used to talk about music and share work with the rest of the community. we're keeping an eye on the Forum Suggestions thread and rolling out stuff like this based on community request and how much it seems like we need it, and there was enough interest to warrant adding it!

for our new forum, i would also like to emphasize all sorts of sound discussion, including stuff that isn't explicitly music, such as voice clips, sound effects, all the finer details and that. :)

big thanks to all of you that have been hanging out while we're getting set up!
