Hi all. We thought it would be good to have a small update for everyone and introduce a few new changes that have happened recently.
The leader role hasn’t always been made to be the most effective thing in the world, and we are hoping to give the role more life and purpose.
With that in mind we picked a small number of people to take on the leader role alongside the existing leaders who we think bring a lot to the forum and community. So say hi to our new leaders:
Going forward we are going to ensure that we don’t take so long to look at new leaders again in the future. Additionally we will be looking at how leaders want to shape the role here so that they can take on a more leader like role within the community, be that running some small events, bringing new things into the community, or just being super helpful.
The forum has recently been updated to a 2.0 build of discourse. This has brought a number of new features to the forum.
As well as general improvements to things like search, tagging, and bug fixes a few notable changes that you can utilise are as follows:
Two factor authentication. 2FA is available in your user preferences page, this use TOTP (time based, using a phone app for example).
Edit reply type - You can change your reply type mid reply, for example if you decided your post should be a new topic, or PM rather than an existing reply.
If you find any bugs or have issues with the forum, remember to report them here https://forum.level1techs.com/c/l1techs/Bug-report
You’ll have noticed the sidebar in the forum in the last few weeks. This is part of a look at making a wiki like section of the forum for people to make and share their guides, tutorials, and information without it getting lost in the noise.
How this goes we will see over the next little bit of time, but for some general information see the following pages.
Wiki Meta Talk - General meta talk about the wiki or wiki articles.
Feed back is welcome on how you think we could improve it or how you’d like to see it, feel free to comment in the meta talk page.
