Long-time members tsn know the feeling. The need to continually check the site for new posts since their last visit, wondering if anyone has replied to their latest remarks or pearls of wisdom.
Sure it was made easier with the My Spot page, showing everything new since your last visit. If you had read everything, there was nothing left to see. If the person dropped a one-liner, you made the trip for nothing.
And then, occasionally, someone would start a thread and it would go completely unnoticed for years. Not anymore!
The Latest Integration from [[Oracle]]
Starting today, all members of the forums will have access to some special Discord Channels where [[Oracle]] will cross-post short excerpt of the topic, and/or start a thread in the Discord channel with replies to the topic.
Depending on the roles you have on the forums, you’ll gain access to corresponding channels for specific forum categories, or special forums. For more information about the user groups, checkout the tsn8: Come with Me through the Looking Glass topic on the subject. (Note: some things may have changed since then, so check the 2022 Update).
