I think DDG community forum could be improved by adding more than just "General Ramblings".

Why not organize the forum with these tabs?

- Updates / news / Official Announcements

- General Ramblings or General Discussion

- Problems or Tecnhical Support Zone

- Sugestion Box

- Off-Topic Discussion

And in front of those terms, the number of threads/posts and the number of replies like it has already.

The ability to sort the posts through the most recent is also a neat idea.

I think it would be easier to navigate through the forum with my idea, instead of everything in the same place.

Add an edit button in forum replies.

Add an edit button in the translation comments (I think there isn't one there).

Add a contact option at the buttom of any page, so anyone can easily contact a community leader(which i think works the same as moderator in other versions of forums) and then the community leader should be able to easily forward it to the right person.

Private messages in the forum (what's a forum without pv. messages? )

Thank you all for the many comments, questions and suggestions. Particular thanks go to user x.15a2 for constantly monitoring, replying and helping so many users here. To continue these discussions, please head over to the DuckDuckGo subreddit.

We're planning some major updates to the forum and hope to address most of your points when we do. Right now, we're still recovering from the launch of the DDG redesign but is next on our plate :)

Please use this thread for aggregated suggestions!

Would be good:

* Tighter integration of XMPP.
* Make all the features of the current more discoverable.
* Ability to see the 'highlights' of long threads.
* More markdown features
* Indication of when a thread has been read/acknowledged by DDG staff.
* Indication of whether a question has been answered or an issue responded.
* 'Canonical' answers on certain issues (minor issues not worthy of blog posts).

Would be amazing:

* Loomio/Your priorities style voting and community decision making. Post on mailpile blog:
