Bungie Community, Did we mention that Bungie.net is a work in progress? Today, some more of that work is on display. An update just went live that is bristling with enhancements for your forum-going experiences. Compared to the weekly revisions that we enjoyed during the beta phase for “Bungie.next,” this one took a little while longer to become a reality. We hope you’ll agree that the extra wait has made this helping of new code all the sweeter. Today’s upgrade is packed with over 200 fixes, tweaks, bumps, nudges, and turbocharges. Check out the highlights: [b]News is easier to discover and share.[/b] If you look at the homepage and scroll down to the slider, you’ll see an instant preview of latest content the Bungie Blog on the leftest-most widget. When you drop a comment on those stories, the conversation will be mirrored automatically on the forum. This will yield better visibility when new details for Destiny emerge – or we continue to chronicle the rise of the Destiny Community to power. [b]Bungie.net is smoother to browse using a mobile device.[/b] The Bungie Mobile App is unchanged, but if you surf our website on the go you might detect some slight changes in navigation and layout that make the waves a little easier to ride. [b]Polls have returned.[/b] Let democracy reign, again. Your topics can invite an audience to select from Seven pre-determined options. If you’re asking “Why Seven?” you must be new here. Welcome! [b]Question threads are brand new.[/b] When you mark a Topic as a question, you can circle back later and indicate which answer you like the best. We can help you out with that process, since an answer from a Bungie employee can light the way for other lost souls. [b]You have bold new powers for sorting the forum.[/b] First of all, the index view for any forum has more immediate callouts of recent activity. Also, you can filter the Topics on a forum so that only the ones you’ve chosen to “Like” appear, allowing you to save your favorite conversations for later. [b]You can now “Like” the Comments for Topics, too.[/b] This will impact the way content is sorted within a thread. More popular Comments will rise to the top, allowing even our less vocal members to influence the consensus. And, if the consensus is less important to you than consuming every trollicious detail… [b]The order of Comments (and their corresponding Replies) to Topics can be sorted.[/b] Look at a thread. Find the new option in the upper-right. Select from “Popular” or “Oldest First.” You can take the temperature of the community, or you can read every single remark as they unfold. This new feature is new, and requires a little patience on your part. The site should remember your preference. Let us know if it works! While your Private Groups remain greatly unchanged, all of these forum updates will be visible within your own clubhouses, too. What more could you ask for? Plenty! We know. We’re listening. And we’re working on it. For now, please dive into the new toybox and keep the feedback coming. Love, DeeJ BNG Assistant to the Community Manager Bungie
