Thread Description
Suggestions for future changes

This is just a thread of improvements I would want in the forum to make it more convenient, easier, and encouraging (?) to actually use the forum.
  • Change Your News Feed to show posts from watched threads rather than posts from followed users.
    • Sort by time posted
    • Label with thread post is from (may already do this)
  • Add a Watched Threads section above the Varis.Forum section on the front page that, on web page load, shows the first few most recently posted to threads a user is watching
  • Add an update section to show what "version" of the forum is currently available and what features were added. Possibly any bug fixes as well.
  • More styles. This is pretty minor, but would make things a bit more inviting imo
That's pretty much it for now, if I think of anything else or anyone else has suggestions, feel free to post them here.

Is there a way to make it so the New Posts section only shows posts that you are currently watching and if not, how difficult would it be to add that feature?

Edit: I guess the Your News Feed section is a sub tab under that section, so really it just goes back to my first post in this thread.

Do you mean "Latest Posts"?
I could add an option in account settings that disables it and replaces it with a Watched Threads widget maybe

This section here if that clears things up. Also, going back and looking at it, it shows the thread the post is in but not the post itself i.e. what the post actually contains. Is there a way to update that as well?

Are emotes used to like/react limited to a certain selection or am I an idiot? If they are limited, is it possible to get access to all custom emotes for reactions/likes?

you need to donate to access more emotes there are currently only a limited number of emotes for reacting to posts

Can we have some form of laughing reaction emote? Because sometimes something is just funny.

yeah. What should it be worth though?
each reaction has a score to it
Retard is the only negative one so far, while like and puddicat-heart are the only positive ones. The rest are valued at 0

Well you can laugh at someone or because you appreciate a joke or just found something funny I would give it 0.

So Halo said that I can post suggestions for the reaction images here, I'm not sure if it's gonna work or at least most of it. Anyway, all art is done by Kukuruyo in case someone wanted the sauce:

why do you bold my name?, uh but yeah they'd probably work. It isn't like discord where non-square emotes look like shit.

Is it possible to have custom reaction's in Pleroma or are we stuck with the stranded ones?
I was looking into it, apparently people requested it before but it has something to do with the backend so I can't do anything there. Although its planned.
edt: okay saying I can't do anything is a lie. I could try to but I'd probably just fuck it up lol. Since they're already planning it no point in me doing it and possibly screwing up the instance.

Maybe a quick primer for newfags like myself on best way to approach the forum or something.
I dunno, kinda used to vBulliten formats having a place for introducing yourself - largely ignored cringe inducing bullshit aside, seems to serve a purpose as a self-induction ritual.
EDIT: just noticed the introductions thread in misc. As it's stickied, maybe a link to it from the rules posts or something might be enough?
