19 September 2016 Release Notes

Hi everyone,

Here is what we expect to release on Monday, 19 September, 2016.

Community
  • New topic selector when asking a question.
  • Recommended topics will automatically be pre-populated based on the question title and body. Hopefully our friendly robots make good suggestions, but if not, you can delete anything that’s wrong.
  • When manually selecting topics, just start typing and the system will find matching topics. Choose from the list.
  • Upon reaching Level 5 (50,000 points), you’ll now be able to edit topics to help improve content categorization or fix mistakes.
  • New Top Experts design featured on topic landing pages.
  • Counts and quicklinks of a member’s contributions will be added to the profile page
  • Feedback tab added to member profiles that will show a member’s ratings and comments from Gigs and Live
  • When a member levels up that information will now be updated within a minute.
  • New “toast” message displayed when a user endorses content for the first time. Cheers!

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
The Experts Exchange Team

forgive me, but:
                                 New “toast” message displayed when a user endorses content for the first time. Cheers!

Is that slightly burnt bread or a beverage style of toast?  
Many of us probably won't get to share in this vital new feature.

New Top Experts design featured on topic landing pages.
Will it regain high visibility?

Fortunately, it's the virtual kind of toast, so everyone can participate. Although the food option sounds pretty good right now ;-)

The top experts component will still be found in the same location.

Oh great, we've renamed Topic Areas again ... Removed the "-Others" part?
