Greetings all, We have another edition of release notes for you so we can highlight the changes we’ve made to the site. This time, we’ve included some improvements to make it easier to search for Talk Posts and finding your friends on Massdrop. 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. Here are the Release Notes as of September 13, 2018.
Search Community Talk Posts Have a question you want to ask but don't know if it's been answered by the community already? Want to see all posts mentioning your favorite headphones? You can now search for content specifically within Talk. Searching from Talk will filter results on posts and comments in the community and categories in view.

Stickied Post Indicator Sometimes we ‘sticky’ important posts or comments so that they automatically stay at the top of the feed. You can now see which ones are stickied by looking for the little thumbtack (📌) in the top right corner of the post or comment.

Not sure what happened with one of the most recent site changes, but it's driving me nuts. With most clicks, most things now become some sort of "pop-up window". This requires a "closure" before I can continue browsing anything. I cannot simply navigate away like we used to. Don't know if I'm the only one that hates this, but it has actually kept my time spent on the site down, because it's just so annoying.
Not sure if I'm describing this properly. For example say I see a notice of someone adding to a discussion. I click the notice icon giving a list of new notices, then the actual notice. It then takes me to that particular discussion. But at that point, I can no longer navigate directly away when finished reading. I can't just click the notices icon to go to the next discussion notice. I now have to FIRST close that stupid window, which then takes me back to where I was earlier.....you know, that place I navigated away from in the first place....that place in the site I no longer wanted to be. 😬. Only then will the header icons be accessible for me to go to the next notice, which will be yet another isolating pop-up. 😠😡🤬
I think one of the most infuriating aspect is that the new pseudo-pop-up doesn't just overlay, but allows you to see through to the blurred out header icons that you can no longer access, until this NEW window is now CLOSED.
I cannot express how much I really hate this last change. Other than to say, enough to actually not want to be here.

FYI: I think something got broken in the last release. Ever since this post I'm having an issue on the mobile version (haven't tried it from a computer)
It used to be when I had an alert for a reply or an endorsement I could click the alert and be taken directly to the individual post. Now when I click the alert it just takes me to the top of the conversation and I have to scroll through the whole thread to find what's new
Hoping you guys are monitoring the replies on this one and can get it fixed, it's very frustrating
Other that that, digging the announcements on the site improvements 👍
