      Edwin Rivera Team- I am wondering when do we expect major changes on this platform and re- focus on product development vs just fixing issues with cosmetic changes. We do really desire to develop strong communities and our businesses as you evolve; however we can not do it if your goals are not in alignment with our needs. I am customer since 2012 and I am not fulfilled to launch our community.

      seTweaks Is there a technical limitation in the application/database that won't allow you to make posts editable ?
      • 1
      Rick Von Ruden Sure would be nice to see the SE Cloud development roadmap very soon. I really want to start a new cloud site but am waiting until I can see SE development plans for SE Cloud. Need member ability to edit posts and comments before I try SE Cloud again.

      a recommended box under the posts.

      Rick Von Ruden Sad to see that members being able to edit posts/comments has not been fixed yet and is not planned for July based off of SE Blog. Well one month left of my subscription and then on to something else if not fixed.

      Arnfinn Ingebrigtsen Why is it not possible to have addthis or shareit share buttons in the gallery viewer ?
      • 1
      Lacey Wallace I'd like to see a bigger "Create Account" Icon... or is there any chance it could just say "Sign up!" in big letters?
      • 1
      Arnfinn Ingebrigtsen There is also a bug with the comment from posts>li when you have set the posts to external and not internal. When you push the comments count, you should be able to jump to the page post and see the comments, but you are jumping to the external page. So to have posts go external is not useful
