  • Added a tool that gives Trusted Advisors the ability to block spammer accounts.
  • Added a tool that gives Trusted Advisors the ability to unpublish a targeted user's spam content in bulk.
  • Enabled the "move this comment to a discussion of its own" to content types other than forum discussions. Now, if a user posts a support question to a blog post, the comment can be moved to the appropriate support forum.
  • Removed the "Recently Updated" sort option from forum list pages.
  • Added a "Recent Activity" sort option (as the default) to forum list pages. This option displays both new discussions and new comments to existing discussions sorted by date and time.
  • Fixed "Product(s)" info on Known Issues to display product tags instead of community tag.
  • Fixed an issue where the list of "Can you solve these" forum discussions was truncated and did not show a complete list of unsolved discussions.
  • Added the ability to filter Ideas by their status.
  • Added a "Status" label to Ideas nodes and lists so users can quickly see the status of any listed idea.
  • Removed the "Trusted Advisors" tab from community landing pages where no TAs have been selected.
  • Users who click on the green "solved" icon on forum list pages are now taken to the post that solved the issue.
  • Added navigation that allows users to navigate back to a group home page after viewing the group member list.
  • Added "Filed Under" information to the Ideas pages.
  • Updated the Event Signup form so the phone number field auto-populates for users who have added a phone number to their user profile.
  • Removed promos from Signup admin pages.
  • Fixed the sort order in the topic filter drop down menus.
  • Fixed an issue that was allowing event organizers to display signup info on the Connect registration page. This was leading to an inordinate number of spammers signing up for user group meetings with incomplete registration data.
  • Finished re-translation of Connect user interface. Re-enabled language chooser.
  • Created an admin tool that makes it easier to merge two user accounts.
  • Fixed a problem with the thumbs up/down vote counter not incrementing until a after a page refresh.

  • Modified page title tags to improve SEO.

Awesome - I wonder whether some of the Symantec Employee accounts should have some of these abilities?  Sorry if that's been discussed before..  I am just curious.

I sure I've seen the return of this in places (but can't remember where!).

However, there are a few in https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/inside-sym... that aren't displaying this tag.
