    After migrating to the new platform, the longer posts are minimized when quoted with a option of "click to expand"

    While it is good for the normal sections, but in the seo link building when we quote the reviews, they often get minimized and the effectiveness of the reviews is drastically reduced since the main text or testimonial is minimized.

    I wanted to just ask is there any proposal to just not activate this feature in the seo link building or marketplace, to ensure sales are not impacted.

    I am not able to edit my above post, so would be adding the second bug here.

    2. In seo link building section, the sticky is just appearing on page 1. The page 1 now has less then 30 non sticky threads, so a greater number of users would be going to second page and so on, but unlike earlier, there is no sticky on second and third page.

    Any chance we could fix that.

    Reason being it would impact the advertising exposure heavily.

    Earlier, the sticky thread would use to appear on any page of the section.

    BHW - of course.
    Home Page:
    This is a load speed feature and as such we're not planning to change this. If people want to read more reviews, all they have to do is click. However increased speeds will benefit all members & sellers across all areas of the forum. As you're all aware there are changes coming to the marketplace. Authorised reviews will be one of these changes.

    Actually those mega long ass review posts put a lot of people off, myself included. Most sales thread only need 5-10 reviews from reputable members to look legit.
    100's of reviews from low post count users doesn't really sell the service.

    There is a 1 hour window to edit posts for obvious reasons. WRT sticky sections appearing on each page this is in line with most adverting platforms where adverting changes per page.

    @Diamond Damien
    Thanks for clarifying things.

    Also just witnessed one more thing.
    When there is reply in a sticky thread they are not appearing in the homepage in recent threads.

    Even the normal threads are appearing in the recent threads list but not the sticky ones. It is like the sticky threads are at a disadvantage even when compared to the normal threads.

    Can we please fix that if possible
