We’ve talked about what we’re not crazy about, but I want to know what you’re looking forward to! My favorite new feature is the ability to merge and split topics. No more closing duplicate threads, or having to tell people “this is a great discussion, but not relevant here” – we can just create it! This will allow us to facilitate conversation more, rather than just shutting down conversations because they don’t fit. I’ve never liked having to do that, and I’m excited about no longer having to!
I also like the profile cards; when they’re working properly (right now they’re not quite importing from the main part of the site’s profile the way they’re supposed to) but they’ll be a great compromise for the much-maligned signature. People can have their personalization, but those who don’t want to SEE it don’t have to in the regular course of conversation!
