    • Fixed an issue where the background color of the drop-down fields in the Item Category is wrong under certain circumstances.
  • Lazy Load Image Improvement

    • This is part of our on-going effort to improve user experience based on Announcement - NPS Survey Results

    • Fixed an issue where account without passwords can’t update their username.
    • User will now get an email notification when their username is updated.

    • The “Start Discussion” Button has been renamed to “Create Post”.
Also has the 'Discussions created' in a Member's Profile been changed to avoid any confusion? Starting a new topic should be called by the same name everywhere on the site.

Good feedback, thank you. Yeah we are planning to address the naming inconsistencies across the site. This one is just a starting effort.

Wow what is reasoning behind that? I see so much confusion potential as well abuse potential.

@jpishgar or @AG Jeff would be the best to answer, but I'll give it a go.

According to the community management team here, we receive a lot of requests from users who signed up with the wrong name. For example, they use their real name and then realize that it is shown on their posts and would like to change it.

Yup,

We get flooded in Contact Us tickets with the new users requesting name changes as they sometimes use their Facebook name or email by mistake when they first sign up.

This feature can be toggled off per community if it becomes a problem.

Ok I will keep an eye on it. We usually do name changes for members.

Yeah, send it to me and I'll write it down. Tyty :P:
(Bug) Post Count Math and Naming Confusion - NC-2066

Depending where you look on this platform:

Posts might be called messages or even replies.
Threads might be called discussions.
Private messages might be called conversations.
Following might be called subscribed or even watched.

I would think the thread creation button would be called "Create Thread" or "Create Discussion" and not "Create Post". Otherwise you're now adding "post" into the confusion of "threads/discussions".

It might be an idea to change that threshold to an certain number of posts. Occasionally we receive an email from someone who registered many years ago but never posted much back then, and now decided he wants to get active again with a new name.

+99 from me. Create Thread/Discussion has more of an affirmative connotation to it. Creating a 'post' is simply making a response within an active Thread/Discussion.
