Well done for all this work!

No topic for June 2023?

You replied to @lythronax246, but they don’t write these. I’ll try and have one up today.


Maybe I do not know how the forum works, could be. In my opiion I replied to the last item in the thread…

I am replying to you, @optilete , by using the gray “Reply” icon at the bottom of your post (which is currently the last item in the thread).

And now I am replyting to the thread as a whole by using the blue “Reply” button next to the “Share,” “Bookmark,” and “Flag” buttons. The system treats these ways of replying differently.

I do not see the difference, two buttons to reply to a topic, but what is a difference, I found a new topic ‘June 2023’

The difference is that when you click the “Reply” button under someone’s comment, that person is notified - as you just were when I made this comment. It’s also possible to view the comment someone was replying to, even if it’s much earlier in the topic. If you use the blue “Reply” button at the bottom, you reply to the topic as a whole, and only people who are “watching” the topic will be notified.
