Re: Changes to forums and comments

In response to BDCDottie's comment:
As you can see, we've launched new discussion forums, article comments, and personal profiles on the site. We've always relied on software from other companies to power our user tools. But during the past few months, we've built our own – we think this will give us more flexibility and control over these features.
Here in the forums, we had to delay the implementation of some of the features that you like: The gold star that brings you to the first unread comment, Ignore this user, spell check, add an image, and some others. We have a working list of items to restore in the coming days and weeks.
There’s a fuller explainer here: http://www.boston.com/community/note_to_bostoncom_users/
Please leave a comment here about any features that are missing that I didn't mention in the note linked above, or if you're having any technical issues.
Thanks for all the work on the new board that's been done.
Is it a wrap or are more changes/modifications going to show up down the pike?
If so, I would like to see a link to go to the end of the thread.
As I recall, there was one on the old board.
