Experts Exchange 2016 - The TL;DR version

A lot has happened this year, and we still have a quarter to go.  I'm sure its not possible for everyone to be able to keep up with what we've done over the past year, but as quickly as possible, I will try and give you the pint sized version of our glorious year so far:

New products (in no particular order):

A new navigation (menu).
A new toolkit for volunteers (aka Badgers; Thanks Rob!)
New question page. (Logged in and Logged out)
New article page.
New profile page.
Expert testing cleanup.
Proposed Topics.
Q&A is free.  aka Dropping the paywall.  http://blog.experts-exchange.com/ee-blog/course-correction-dropping-the-paywall/ and https://appdevelopermagazine.com/4588/2016/11/4/The-paywall-is-finally-gone-and-the-Experts-Exchange-is-talking-about-it

and last but not least...

Hundreds, if not over a thousand, of bug fixes and feedback from the Community.  (Yes, with a capital C, because you make this site successful, and I enjoy working every day with each and every one of you.)

Will the new stuff (like Gigs, Live, etc) be added to the mobile apps?

Also, linking to LinkedIn if you have two-step authentication on LI?

I believe you're the first person to ask.  I can definitely take this feedback to our development teams.  In the meantime, Experts Exchange is fully responsive site on mobile devices so you should be able to use Live, Gigs, etc on mobile devices.

Also, linking to LinkedIn if you have two-step authentication on LI?
Are you talking about importing your LinkedIn account to your EE profile page or something else?

The web doesn't give notifications for gigs, for example...

No, when you answer a question, you have the check boxes at the bottom to share it to Twitter and LinkedIn

Right.  The App only currently supports Q&A.  I have captured your feedback for our teams.

Oh OK I'm following now.  Are you running into an issue?  What are the steps so I can try to reproduce?

Add a check for some under the LinkedIN area (you might need to Edit the area first).

It goes to get LinkedIN Auth, asks for the password, etc.

Then returns to an Experts-Exchange page with only:
"We seemed to have trouble processing that request. Please try again. If the problem persists, please contact Customer Service."
