Hello Lena E.,
Your outline on the subject of Community Forums is very nice and helpful!
I wonder if I may make a suggestion?
Is there some way that when a member 'hovers' over each category, there would be a bubble with some detail about the category. That would help save time instead of trying to find your original outlined post (as more threads increase over time).
Allowing me to activate emails notifications from my reply and deactivate it when I need without that affecting other notifications is a well thought out process.
In the future, could I further filter my reply to only specified posts, replies?
