    I definitely miss the nested discussion. Todd is that something you can enable on this forum?

    Ugh, tell me about it. I plan to get about 50,000 *following* notices by day's end. It's hard being a rock star.

    Wait wait-- I just saw the link at the top!
    I'm excited that we can "ignore" users now!
    Does that mean the trade forums will allow replies???!!

    What do you get out of following somebody?
    Not sure if I'm ready to commit.

    See how a double reply looks-- also, I just followed Shogo as well... I hope he does get 2500 follower alerts today!

    I think the avatars and the info boxes are a bit big, but we should be able to adjust those settings?

    I think I'll be using the ignore feature a lot.

    I Prefer to click "like," then you're given the chance to click "unlike."
    I think clicking "unlike" really nails home the point!

    Hmmm just saw the ignore feature. Poor Levitation is screwed (not saying I will ignore Levi).

    Any chance that the conversation system will be changed to allow for more than 5 users? The group conversation is really handy for sending out BIF info, organizing tastings, etc. It won't be nearly as effective with a 5-person limit.

    And if you click like, and then click unlike, does the person get two alerts? One saying "Hey, this person approves of you." and then another, "Hold on, no, they think you suck!"

    I wonder if that will prevent his posts from showing up in the forum if he's "ignored".

    +1 to this. I was just thinking that myself...even though I seldom drink with more than five people.

    Any chance we could get more posts/page? Obviously one big page was a bit unwieldy, but I think the current one is a bit low. Lots of clicking. I know some forums actually make that a user preference, does this one? Alternatively, if this was done to lower server load, that's fine.

    I hope not. The only reason I read these forums is because of Levitation.

    Negative

    On a side note, the alerts are awesome.



    I was worried about that because I'm at work. It pulled my avatar from my gmail account. Modern forums... so.. Modern..

    The option of customizable fonts will certainly make it easier for highlighting and emphasizing certain parts of a post. How easy!
