Since launching communities for jams & games, along with the new global itch.io community, we’ve gotten a lot of feedback. We’ve added and fixed many things, here are some of the highlights:

  • New community profiles that let you see all the posts made by someone. Check out Amos’s profile for an example
  • You can now subscribe and bookmark topics, you can find links to do so on the topic’s header
  • We’ve added topic tags. Community creators can set a list of tags that chosen when creating a new topic. E.g. on the Ideas & Feedback board we’re using them to mark topics as In progress, Resolved, or Planned.
  • We’ve added a new recent posts page that lest you quickly browse what’s new
  • Tons of bug fixes and usability updates

All of these updates apply to all communities on itch.io, including the ones you can add to your project pages and jams.
