Re: Update to Community Boards and Replies

This week we will be pushing two small updates to Community boards and replies.

 

On board tiles we have updated the information to now display the profile image of the latest poster along with the latest posters name at the top. The author of the post will be displayed on the last line after the reply and kudo count. See screen shot below:

Additionally, we are adding a timestamp to post replies to be included along side the post date. See highlighted change in screenshot.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Hopefully, it works as intended. The current setup sometimes doesn't work. With the "Latest Post" showing the author of the post even though somebody else posted/replied, like the one below:

 And worse, sometimes the "latest poster" is someone who has not contributed to a thread at all.

This update is now live. There may be a small delay in updating the info, as you shared Renante. But if you do see the wrong name showing Reinier, or encounter any issues, let us know.

Unlike Rene ... I don't see the point of this.

Lena,

Please, please, please!!!

Restore the forums to their old look!
That the main photo of the thread is that of the person who started it.
This change is crazy and very uncomfortable.

Great news! Displaying the pic and name of the last poster was I suggested some time ago, I think it's more logical. Thanks for this Upwork.

 More logical? That's a very strange point of view. I'm afraid I don't see any logic in this.

I am very late to the party. I haven't visited the forum here in a while but have done so lately. Really dislike this change. I immediately associate the image with the person who posted the thread which is obviously now mostly incorrect. You see odd and silly postings with the images of the more prominent members here and it's just off-putting. There is no other message board that I've been a part of that does things like this. Also, as was posted earlier, having a non UW employee's picture showing up with an official announcement from UW makes no sense (as mine will be for the moment for this thread). Unclear why this change was made.  In the old days you used to get a phone book delivered to your door. It's sort of like if they just decided to give you that phone book but it starts with Z and progresses to A.
