    All alerts are on except:
    Attaches a file to a watched thread
    Posts a new status
    You follow posts a video

    And I don't appear to get alerts for people tagging me.

    FWIW Large attached photos really bog down page loading speeds on slower internet connections like those I'm using over here in Manila right now; 1-4Mbps download speeds.

    Is there a way to resize photos while posting them?

    I don't really know. I use Flickr for my image posts.

    There is one potential solution, I had suggested the fix to moderators to see if they can have it implemented. The images should also be fronted by cloudflare so the images are cached and loaded from a CDN host closer to your IP address.

    @Cheech_Sander @htimSxelA

    Can the maximum recipient list in private conversations be increased from the default of 5 to lets say 15 (or pick a number)?

    Regarding the photo resize, we are exploring a different plugin that would allow the large size photos to remain for high speed connections while resizing for slower connections on the fly. The plugin you suggested was good for saving space but it takes away from some of the benefits of allowing hi-res images.
    Any thread with a ton of pictures may take a while to load.

    The point of that is obviously to cut down on spammy group messages. I'm thinking if it's a larger group than 15 maybe a thread is a better medium to discuss?

    But if more people want that we can do it.

    Agreed, this is a special use case and I highly doubt anyone else would care to have more than 5. This would help in my case if I run more group buys for DS, I don't have to create multiple conversations. I can make do without this feature for now.

    I'm not sure if this actually searches through everything, but after opening up the forums tab, where you can click on "forums" "the sesh" "ds exchange" etc. If you scroll down a little it says "search forums". thats the only way that ive found to search on the app.

    Is there a way to change how alerts are handled on mobile? Not meaning what alerts im getting, but turning off the sound and vibration for the app? The discussion thing can be resolved by using discord ; )

    This is done through your phone. On android, you would go to Applications > Notifications > Show silently.

    you can also change which sound you hear via your phone's notifications settings.

    Try to go back to the home menu, invoke the sidebar, head over to "Forums".
    It's in a submenu under said title!

    @amor thinking we should change it just to "search" and bump it up for visibility?

    Anyone else notice the autofill when you are trying to tag someone no longer works? For example previously typing @ and the first 2-3 characters would give you a drop down list of members from which to choose. That no longer appears to be working.
