Bumping this. Now, i'm in the favor to have a "subforum" called "Updates/Announcements" which only testers/mod and administrators can post.
Why did I include the testers? This is simple (and no, it's not about favoritism). We are often involved in users reports when it's about groups/servers etc and after that, we have the communication between admins. Last time, we had an issue with Flash not loading properly because of a server problem. I had to set a status update (not comfortable + everyone didn't see it) . Instead, I could've been made a post and updated this post.
The main idea here is to keep the communication between users and xat (which is very low at some points) + keep a track of issues with this subforum in the forums. Some platforms use a blog to post their updates, then xat can use this subforum. This is how we can be shown as "communicative" because admins will not always post on their twitter account about issues (except if critical). They can obviously use this forum post and post it on the twitter since we cannot write much on twitter.
Announcements like Contributor monthly logs can stay in the original subforum. I just want users to stop complaining that we never communicate with them (that we are "zero"), that's why I want this even tho we will not have a lot of issues, but it's still good to have one so we can update users about what's going on xat! Maybe some of you will not agree with me but if we can improve the communication, it's better than nothing.
To clarify more about a new subforum, I just dont want the update/announcements posts to be mixed with other posts. We need to find them easily.
Chat scroll is a thing but not everyone is going to visit the chat with this scroll.
