    Implemented a few changes:
    1. The homepage feed now has the option to show all threads with latest posts, rather than just the threads with unread posts. i.e., previously once you viewed a thread and it was no longer "new" to you, it would no longer show on the homepage; now, you can opt-in to change that and to show all threads with latest posts, regardless of whether you've read the thread/post already.
      • The old (2.0) version of the homepage won't return -- I gave it a lot of thought (+ dug into the code for several hours on multiple attempts) and the only thing gained by reverting would be to see the single (1) latest post from the sxn. That change would come at the expense of seeing all of the threads with latest posts. Hope this is a compromise. Plz stop bitching now.
    2. Status updates on mobile is now functioning. Have at it.
    3. Clicking on a user's name will now open their profile in a new window. Member "cards" (the little pop-up) won't return, but this will get you to their info/page without having to sacrifice taking you away from the content you're currently viewing.

    Future/upcoming changes:
    1. will clean up the emojis so that they load quicker
    2. going to re-visit adding the display of "users viewing thread"

    Thanks for everything @Slyk!

    Really love the option to view all new posts, not just the unread ones. I kept forgetting about the threads I liked because I kept getting didstacted by new ones. Now it’ll be easier to follow along with the discussions that interest me while also keeping an eye out for unread ones. Thanks!

    When are the alerts going to disappear just by opening the list? Selecting "mark all as read" leads you away to a separate thing and it's annoying as hell.

    never. that's the dumbest way for alerts to function. if you have 10 alerts in 10 different threads and you open the list once and go to 1 thread, then you suddenly want those other 9 to be dumped into read territory? that's asinine.

    the blank space up top? there' supposed to be a google ad there...for some reason it doesn't load every time. think it suppresses if you visit super often or something.

    At least make the "mark all as read" do it without leaving the page you're on.

    nitpicking...it can't be done in it's current form. would take a couple hundred dollars and/or me learning a new language to get it done... neither are happening. let it go.
