We've been beta testing this behind the scenes are now launching to everyone an upgrade to the forum software and want your feedback in this thread. We think its a better forum experience and a big shout out to erik and the team for the work involved in getting this launched.
The goal was for us to improve the user experience by improving the content you see, give you better control over that content, improve how it is presented, and make it easier to find. Related to this, we wanted to improve and be more transparent with our moderation policies and practices.
An article on what we're trying to accomplish is here:https://www.letsrun.com/news/2022/02/an-improved-letsrun-com-forum-is-here.
TLDR if you're skipping the article. There are 5 major improvements:
- Better Moderation
- Ability to Block Users / See Only Running Threads
- Up Votes / Down Votes
- Follow Threads and Users More Easily
- Better Display / Quoting of Posts
We also now display stats on moderation and have all our moderation guidelines and contact info in one place here:https://www.letsrun.com/forum/moderation-information-and-community-guidelines
We'd like your feedback and reporting of any bugs here or feel free to email us firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're also going to be more regularly engaging with the community about improvements they want to see and things we should be doing differently.
