User - All Activity - does not show activity type / action


(lid) #1

Wonder what are the reasoning behind this change

User profile / Activity / All

###Before
shows all activity, if the user liked a post, if the user post got liked, user replied.
3 activities


####Now
Only show post, does not show what kind of activity.
only 1 activity

I recall seeing some mention of dropping it completely. Maybe that went awry?

There are two changes that got combined there:

  1. All only shows Posts + Topics now.

    Nobody liked the “combined” all (likes + posts + topics + every other kind of action all lumped together).

  2. The category got moved down since the action field was IMO a bit redundant, and category was getting dropped in an ellipsis if the title was long. This also helps categories align better on the page.

OT: it’d be nice to do that in digest emails as well.
