Here are the changes that we have performed in April:

1. We've added a new reaction: Sad. After we've monitored its use over a few weeks period we're now happy ( :unsure: ) to announce it. This new reaction brings a new way for our members to react to posts where the other reactions would have not have been appropriate.

2. We've completely redesigned the Footer of the site. Previously it had the two blocks: Hottest Threads and Trending Threads. While they were useful, these blocks can be found on other pages. So, we've now replaced them with new blocks that make it easier for our members to browse the community and account.

This new footer is only available for our members (guests cannot see it), and will not be visible on mobile devices to save space.


3. We've added an "Up" arrow when scrolling up to make it easier to reach the top part of the site quickly. We're also testing a "Down" arrow but for now, only the Up arrow is shown.

4. We've made some changes to the forums list on the main page, including making the entire row clickable to make it easier to browse.

5. Other changes include a new design for the Tables and avatars and a lot of other small improvements.

Here are the changes that we have performed in August:

1. We've added a new forum dedicated to Browsers.

We felt this was required due to the sheer volume of threads and posts. Alongside the most popular browsers, we also have a sub-forum dedicated to Extensions/Add-ons and Mobile Browsers.



2. Most popular threads have been pinned. These are found at the top of the sub-forum.

Existing threads are currently being sorted into the new categories, and remain open to new posts.
