I would have liked to be able to get notifications about the new Questions (as is the case on the Jive Adobe forums). At this moment it is difficult to see the difference between questions and all the other stuff that appears daily. Questions are rarely answered, and there is not a way to acknowledge correct answers as is the case on all the other forums I am using.

It is also very strange that ‘likes’ (only appreciation possible) is attributing a score to the one who provides the like, not the one who gets the like. Since you have taken out the number of views for blogs, there is no way to detect which articles are interesting for people, which not.  All behaviors that are conflicting with normal behavior of any community/forum.

The “Mention” bit seems new (unless I missed it previously). Is that the typical @+ the user name?  FYI – Typing the @ answered my own question.
