Under "What's New" tab, it would be nice to be able to search by thread start date. Currently, it is listed by last post date. I don't really care about a thread that has been dead for 5 years, but a new member decides to post a question to the OP that hasn't posted in 4 yrs.

What's New is a list of the latest activities. There's no changing this.

What's New is getting replaced with our new discovery tool, Timeline.

Timeline works similar to What's New with the added option to save your own "discovery" streams. For example, you can create a discovery stream from your favorite forums. You can have another stream of people you follow.

If that's not good enough you can always use the Search function that offers even more options. :)

Here's another tease ... this one shows a few new features...

  1. Sorting (custom option)
  2. Mark As Read (now easily accessible)
  3. Following
  4. Topic status (hot, popular, poll, you posted)

"Exciting changes" is no longer a good way to announce anything to nurses. ;)

Just kidding. I'm sure a lot of work has gone into continually improving AN, so I look forward to seeing what's in store.

But...what of the app, Joe V??? What Of The App?

Our focus is on improving experience and speed on the mobile site. No app.

Well, okay, then. Change happens.

I don't really understand (or use) 2/3's of the stuff you spelled out, Joe, but that's okay as long as I always have access to the Blue Side. I need those people in my life!

Going to ATTEMPT to save my avatar of the frazzled, google-eyed creature...Would really hate being automatically avatar'd as "N". :(

I do have one thing that I'd love to see change: if a new response is added to a poll post, it will show up as unread replies in the what's new search. However, it takes the reader to the last post of the thread when clicking on the little arrow. Is there a way to differentiate new reply vs new poll response?

I have tried and tried to download my Avatar picture, but can't get in to enter a new file (or even an old file) so I can save it.

I can get on the page to edit it so it can be down or up-loaded (whichever), but it goes nowhere from there, no matter what I try. It's like the instructions are missing a step or it just ignores my attempts.

Joe, or Anybody ... Can you clue me in on how to "SAVE THE AVATAR!" ? It has to be in layman's terms. ie I am practically computer illiterate and things like 'cut and paste' mean nothing to me except ...safety scissors and Elmer's Glue. See what I mean? If there is someone who could actually save my avatar FOR me, well, is that even possible?

Help me; I DON'T want to have the letter "N" for my avatar!

Can you take a screenshot of it and crop? That would be a quick and easy solution.

I've got a little acer laptop. I have no clue how to screenshot anything. It's a little pic and I don't see how it would need cropping, and even if it did, that's another blank space in my so-called 'knowledge'.

Thanks, though.
