    Did you know there's a way to "like"πŸ‘ a post on this platform!?
    It's the "recommend" button on the bottom of the email thread or the "like" button on the top right of the website. 
    Go on! Give it a try.

    I was discussing with other collaborator's and I didn't realize that this feature was available.
    This got me thinking:

    • What features or tricks on this forum do you know that you can share?
    • What features would you like to see installed on this platform?

    Leave a like on this thread if you didn't know you could!

    How about adding a button for "I have a different opinion."

    How do you guys most easily search to find out if a thread for a topic has been started already? 

    For example, how would I most easily find a collection of all threads that have the keywords "Water Resources" in the title?

    Hello Daniel,

    There was this one time were I was typing out a long and complicated response to a pretty popular discussion, then saved it as a draft because I did not think it was everything I wanted to say. I came back to the discussion and could not find the draft, so I started over with what I remembered: I realized later that the draft had been saved on my account and was still waiting for me there.

    Also, I was wondering if there could be a discussion section that alerts people to discussions that have been made years ago, but received one or zero responses. It could be an 'anniversary' of all the discussions that were posted on a day within the week to show that any discussion could start better late than never?
