Fixed an error that users saw when they attempted to vote on an Idea that they had already voted on.
Added the ability to "deep link" into a pre-filtered list page by appending specific values to the URL. For example, to link to the Backup Exec forum with filters set to "version=11.x" and "topic=Case Study" and "language=English" you would use this URL:...
Users can now subscribe to be notified by email when the status of an Idea changes.
The default setting for notifications is now "autosubscribe" for new users. This means they'll automatically receive an email when a solution is posted to questions they raise in the forums. (The autosubscribe setting can be changed by any user in their profile.)
Changed the Accreditation and Certification badges to leverage CertTracker imports instead of data pulled from PartnerNet on login.
Added a "persistent badge" functionality that will allow the display of a user's badge at the time of the posting. So, if a user was a Trusted Advisor in 2010 but not in 2011, posts they made in 2010 will include their "Trusted" badge while posts made in 2011 will not.

Refactored image upload process to make including uploaded images in posts more intuitive.
Added functionality that will send an email to the appropriate Symantec Technical Support Engineer (TSE) when a forum post is flagged (by a Community Manager or a Trusted Advisor as being "escalated to support".
