    Excellent, thanks. It didn't do it this morning on mobile when I opened the Gen Chat. Don't know that any of the other threads have been long enough for me to notice yet.
     
  2. My guess is that maybe you hadn't refreshed the page since the night before, so it didn't know there were new posts?

    On mobile the thread title will be bold if there are new posts, on desktop there's a blue dot next to the thread title.

    Any possibility of a "followed threads with unread posts" page? Not too different but will become useful when the place gets packed I think

    Nuke the site from orbit. The only way to be sure Prestigious

    Don't know if it's been thrown out there, but is there a way to tag users with notes only you can see? Like "don't talk to this guy, he's an idiot" or "this person is formerly known as this username" etc

    No, I mean something like tags in reddit. Little notes attached to a person's name that remind you who that person is
     
  7. Interesting, haven't heard of that kinda thing before. Something I'll think about.

    think it'd be p helpful to be able to sort notifications by replies, mentions, and quotes, like in tab-type things

    How do you get the nice and clean social media links on the quick profile?

    I'd like there to be a little more customization with cover photos. Sort of like Facebook lets you crop and center your picture. I'm having a hard time getting mine to look right.

    Yep, all of my photos from my camera roll are too large to begin with. I probably won't have a cover photo for a little while.

    That reminds me I need a cover photo. If I'm not using a Grateful Dead avatar, I guess that's what I gotta do.
     
  18. Hah, it looks good!

    I love how it shows a notification in the tab when you're on a different site, especially that it updates live. On AP, you had to refresh your page in order to see any notifications, so this is really cool!

    I wisssssh that each topic was closer together like it is on AP, in order to show more topics per page. Or if there's a way to change that or the "number of topics shown per page" in the preferences/settings that I missed, let me know.

    (Edit: I guess it probably shows just as many (if not more) topics per page, compared to AP.net, but there seems to be more scrolling involved to get from top to bottom. It's a tiny issue that I can definitely get used to if there isn't any way to change the settings.)

    So far, those are my favorite/least favorite things. Other than that though, this is a great and refreshing change!

    I'm not sure how to word this, but there is one thing that aesthetically I like more about AP than here so far, and it had to do with the list of threads in a forum, let's use General as an example.

    On AP, thread titles are bolded when they are unread by me and to the left there is the symbol that shows if I have any posts in a thread. This allows me quickly to look down the left side of the page to see threads that I have posted in, but not read new posts in.

    On chorus, I am finding this harder to separate. Now on the left of threads, the blue dot is there if they are unread by me and to the right is the check mark if I am following the thread (/if I have posted). So when looking down the list of threads, it's not a quick process for my eye to scan down the left side of the threads and immediately tab open the threads that I want to catch up to. I'm just finding that I am reading the title of every thread then trying to remember if I have posted in it.

    I know this is like, super specified and maybe just something that affects me, but it's the only thing so far that I've had trouble adapting to

    Wouldn't that give you exactly what you're looking for?

    Or even more specifically:

    http://forum.chorus.fm/followed/threads

    Threads you've posted in with new posts ...

    Those two links definitely do, thanks. The only difference is that using those links wouldn't allow me to really see new threads that I want to check out, but I think that's ok. Honestly I think a lot of it is just changing what I have been doing for.... 10+ years (yikes)
     
  23. Hah, yeah, I hear you. I rotate between my followed threads to see what threads I want to check up on, and then I usually view the main forums to see what other things I wanna post in or follow new ones.

    I'll give some thought on the scan-ability of the forums themselves as well.

  25. Super minor: a refresh button at the bottom for mobile. It was quite convenient on AP.
