Several weeks ago we made some changes to the message boards. Because of technical issues and your feedback, we decided to pull back these updates until we could be confident they were ready for the public. Since then we’ve worked hard to fix the bugs you reported and address your usability issues. We’re now ready to reintroduce these changes early next week. The most visible change is the overall look of the Boards pages. They are part of the global visual updates designed to improve page performance and responsiveness, and achieve a consistent look and feel. Moving forward, icons will replace text links for Reply, Report Abuse, Delete, Move Message, and categories folders. Additionally, “Begin New Thread” is at the top right of the board rather than the top left. Admins’ delete functionalities are consistently working. The preview page will accurately reflect formatting and in the near future we’ll resume weekly board indexing. Also, investigation is underway to determine the cause of the sporadic general error messages that crop up when trying to post, reply, and delete.
If you have feedback regarding these changes, or encounter any difficulties with the boards or admin functions once it launches, please let us know by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org
