We’re constantly improving the features of the site and want to keep you up to date with all the changes we’re making. It’s important to us that we deliver a solid experience to you and that you’re aware of how that experience evolves over time.
We will now be publishing all of the changes, big and small, that are happening with the site on a regular basis.
Here are the Release Notes as of August 23, 2018.
Members can now post photos directly to a community via the Photo Category. Simply click "Create Post" from the Discover or Talk tabs, select "Photo" and upload away!
Post & Photo Card Updates & Reply in Line
On Talk Post Cards you can now see the latest reply to a given discussion and add to the conversation directly from the card without opening the Post.
User Following Feature
We've updated the Discover Feed algorithm to surface posts from the people you follow more prominently. When you follow a user, you'll see their posts more clearly in your feed.
Discover Feed Refresh
Ever visit the My Communities Discover Feed and find that things you'd already seen were still there? We released a change to remove items you've already seen so if you visit your Feed twice during the same session you won't have to scroll past the same items again. Next up, we'll be working to ensure it's always the best, freshest and most relevant content from your community.
Search for Talk Posts & Comments
You can now search the wealth of discussions on Massdrop via the global Search bar. Simply type your query, hit enter and then select the "Comments" or "Posts" tab to see matching discussions.
@tagging in comments
Bring any of your friends into a conversation on Massdrop with @tagging. Simply type "@" followed by their username and select them from the dropdown list. Once you submit your comment they will be notified.
Quick access of Specs on Drop Pages
Find yourself scrolling a ways down on every drop to get to the Specs section? We added a quick link to the Tabs to jump you directly to them.
Updated User Profiles
User Profiles got a facelift! You can now see a user's top content, subscribed communities as well as their key Massdrop stats on the main page of their Profile. We also added the ability for you to easily sort all of a user's content in different ways on the Profile Talk tab. To see the latest, simply sort by Newest. To see the greatest, try sorting by Top.
Updates to enable Google shopping
Changes to drop page footer, customer service page, and about page to enable Google Shopping Network.
Have any suggestions for features we should add?
