I would enjoy seeing the ability to view forum activity from the citadel main page make a come back as well as being able to see how high/low I voted on a sub. (Not just whether I voted or not.)

Being able to see what I voted on a older sub is really handy to me in the event the author updates it with enhancements or what not so I can easily see how I voted on it  earlier and whether or not to raise my vote.

Yes, for certain!!! Sorry that got dropped for some reason. Not on purpose.

The forum activity was shot down by a web usability expert but am waiting for another fly-by review on it. I could probably put it in hidden by a link to start so you would have to click to expand it to actually view it maybe but want to get the next assessment done before I do that. On the probably table!

Consider this another vote for bringing back the forum activity to the main site. I like seeing an overview of *all* site activity from the main page. It saves me from having to click around to see everything. What reason did the usability expert give for taking it out?

Originally it was removed because the page was way too confusing for a new person just coming in. They were overloaded with a lot of information before they were even introduced to the site. They suggested it would be better to get more focused on showing what we had to offer and explaining it better vs. throwing all the information at them. Not sure I am all the way with that, but it is much better at explaining what things are than the older version.

I will put the forum stuff on for those that are logged on. Easy check and not sure why I didn't think of it before now. Will be done in moments!!

Excellent.

As far as the author page goes, I think the progress bars are a great addition. No more pulling up the chart whenever I want to see how close I am to leveling up.  :up:

Why not make the forum update an option in the profile section? I for one would like to see it but thats just me, and a few others apparently.
