    As of now, only the first 10 members that are tagged in a post (prior to editing) get notifications for it.
    Will it ever be possible to update the feature and have no limitations for tagging members?
    Will it ever be possible for edits not bugging the system and letting the tagging go through?

    Regarding new viewer update, will it be possible to keep how it used to be before (as in have the number and names of those who have viewed the thread in total) combined with the new changes? I think it is a cool feature and I personally enjoy it, but it still lacks some little details.
    And WW mentioned private conversations can now show who is viewing them (unless they have invisibility on IIRC). That is a bit confusing, so further elaboration would be appreciated.

    hell we need to fix the forum not alerting people to replies before we worry about that in my humbled opinion.

    Users who are viewing this node seems pointless, especially when you can't see the full list anyway so what's the point.

    Are you talking about how we can't see all the users in the "Users Who Are Viewing This Thread" box anymore?

    Regular users aren't able to see all who are viewing the thread anyway, only moderators can. That's how it has been and that won't change, I would imagine.

    Can we please move the “users viewing this node” shit back to the bottom of the page that appears when viewing forums and disable the viewers on threads.

    Idgaf who’s online and it certainly doesn’t need to be at the top of the page it’s just annoying and intrusive.

    Also start adding goggles for shit instead of forcing awful changes on everyone.

    I'll try to reply this the best I can.

    Mbxx updated the forums and some features came along and some changes aren't his fault per se. Why? The "who read this thread" was removed by Xon, for example:



    About tagging more users, some days ago it was tested a new tag function, about tagging a group instead of one person. That is really interesting and maybe that will be implemented here.

    About "users viewing this node" it was asked to be moved at the bottom of the page when the update happened. We aren't just sure if it is possible.

    About viewers of PM, there is indeed a "users who are viewing this conversation". I guess it is more useful to staff members because we can see invisible users.

    What are the updates about:

    So we are kinda in a test phase and we are reporting errors we are finding and suggesting some changes.

    All the feedback is appreciated.

    I remember being able to see a lot of users on any given thread. I recall user lists that listed dozens of users on a thread. Why the change?

    Tagging needs to be looked at more closely since I always have to remind to myself I cannot tag more than ten people or edit the post because the alerts won't go through. And I have noticed not many users are aware of it and that is not a good thing.
    I am a bit concerned about the tagging update you are mentioning here because it sounds to me users will have to create groups for tagging. Or maybe I'm missing something here and the usergroups will have to be done by admins. I have to say I'm excited anyway
    I have no problem with the location of who is viewing the thread. I was saying in the OP that it would be nice to bring back the feature before the update of having all the users who have viewed the thread on the bottom of the page.
    OK, I got you, thank you for the explanation.
    Very useful for the information about updates.
    I remember that too. I guess it was necessary for the system update.
