I decided to create a single thread for smaller announcements that don't fit anywhere else.

I made some modifications to the forum search display over the past few days. Those of you using New posts as your gateway to the forums will likely have noticed already.

There are now buttons to both copy a permalink, and visit the post. I also display the time of a post now and the board of the thread that was posted in.
I also tweaked the layout of post headers a little to make them more easily accessible on mobile.

As usual, feedback my way

Forum search now also displays existing thumbs up on a post for easier access to that information and consistency with how posts are displayed in the forums.

The site will now return you to your post after editing and show your new post after posting instead of returning to the top of the page.

Removing the display of users' countries from forum posts as this info is available in the popups now and I want to draw less attention to nationality.

I consider this an experiment. I want to unify what is displayed and reduce it to what is necessary information. In that vein, I added the position of anyone staff or staff-adjacent in forum cards. Also an experiment that I haven't cleared with the rest of staff. So maybe I'll be forced to remove that one if people feel unfomfortable ^^

Thing is, our mods and other staff are frequently insulted by people they reprimand. I'm hoping that displaying their position might help new users differentiate between staff and regular users. Not that I condone insulting anyone else, but staff have to reprimand people sometimes and catch a lot of insult flak that (at least that's what I hope) regular users don't get.

Again, all of this is open to discussion and I'm not married to any of these changes.

Edit: I had originally displayed the status in our attention yellow. But that did what it's supposed to and kept drawing my eyes to it. So it's white for now, even though that breaks consistency with link popups and search suggestions.
I guess we'll have to experiment a little and figure out a good way to display this. Obviously the main thing about a forum post should be the post and not its metadata.
