Honestly, the gestapo, politically aligned to a side on the spectrum or not, is a bit everywhere nowadays. They should clone the TaleWorlds forum moderators and put those in charge of other communities hahaAgreed, and in addition, those rpg.net mods are a bit of a leftist Gestapo permabanning people who would have clean records here. So, not a good example of moderation.
Agreed, Teams is very optimized for classrooms. I was pleasantly surprised the first time I tried it. Slack has nothing on Teams. Though, in the end, I still prefer Discord for everything else, so for the sake of having everything on the same platform...Started teaching in coronatimes and holy Moly, MS Teams is like a really really handy piece of work. Convenient, easy to use, easy to navigate. Love it. I tried Slack some time before in some other project, but this Teams things is next level. Would recommend.

Maybe on a phone or tablet it could be better to a certain extant, but on pcs? That's a solid no for me. I have dropped the forums and webcomics which do this because it becomes harder finding specific posts or pages. If you want to go to page 20, you have to manually scroll down to page 20 and some comments just become unavoidably lost. I think that kind of system works well for something like youtube's comment system due to the sheer number of people on there and how messy the comment order is anyway, but on a forum, it just doesn't work at all that well. If a thread is very long, it becomes more tedious scrolling down than actually clicking next first, last or the page I want to go to, and I generally don't like scrolling down when I'm on a pc in comparison to when I'm on my phone, which I never use for forums anyway because the screen is too small for me.Infinite scroll – you would scroll indefinitely in threads (until the messages end). No need to click the next page. Also could apply to scroll threads in the main forum pages.
I speak in my name because I don't have any statistics on appreciation of or knowledge about how user friendly this feature actually is, but I believe there at least a few others who support my point of view and we should matter too if the add-on is discussed.
Time for my shameless self advertisingHi,
I don't know if it has been asked before, I couldn't find it, but would it be possible to have the "Show new replies to your posts." option in the new forum?
It was a very efficient way to keep track of the threads you had commented in. I might be missing something obvious but I find quite a hassle having to pro-actively watch every single thread I have posted in. Thanks.
