I have found two options. One where you can leave a small "Thanks" at the bottom of the helpful post and one where you vote posts up/down, reddit style.
Any preferences?

I like the thanks at the bottom, it's discreet and positive and doesn't turn it into a voting 'contest' for some of our more competitive thinkers.   :namaste:

I say we first try the 'thanks' one, to keep it positive. With an up/down, people might 'down' a post only because they don't agree.

It's me again.... ;D
Is it possible to combine all the different Sutra links into one thread, 'Sutra Studies', instead of pinning so many?

Many thanks  :namaste:

I've merged all the sutras into one topic called Sutra Links.  Let me know if this works for you.

That "thanks" add-on threw an error at install, so I will have to wait a while with it, to see if I have time to manually implement it. I wouldn't want to damage the site with a dodgy install script.

Dear Wonky and Team,

3 Questions:

1. Any consensus in increasing the types of emoticons, in addition to what we already have?
2. Does this site have the format/ability to enable all to see who is viewing the thread at the bottom of the page?
3. When one deletes the account, what happens? Does all of that member's posts go together with him/her?

 :namaste:
1. I have tried to add them by request, but I've kind of forgotten about the last ones. I should make a note about that.
2. I have to look into that. For now, if you're interested in what people are up to, you can click the "X Guests, X Users" link in the Online Users section at the bottom of the main page. Some users have chosen to be hidden, though.
3. If you delete your own account, I think nothing happens to your posts, except that your user is marked as "Guest". If an admin deletes a user account, he/she can choose between only deleting the user, or also deleting the posts of that user or deleting the user together with all topics and posts that user has made.

The sticky's @ E-Sangha at the top of each sub forum were a great help, especially for a beginner such as myself. Hopefully the more knowledgeable members can restart that to aid any newbies coming to the site with qyestions.
The Great Way has no gate;
there are a thousand paths to it.
If you pass through the barrier,
you walk the universe alone.

Is there a way to add a link for "View active topics?"
That would be different from the "Posts since your last visit."

Thanks  :namaste:

So in other forums, when you are reading a thread that has multiple pages, clicking on the "next" button takes you to the next page in the thread. Here in Freesangha, clicking on the "next" button takes you to the next thread. I frequently click the thing, have a moment of confusion, and then remember "Oh, Freesangha works differently." Any way to fix that?

There is now a "RECENT TOPICS" up in that small menu where the chat also is. Is that the kind of feature you were looking for?

There is now "Prev" and/ or "Next" for at the page numbers for long topics. Hope that helps!
