  1. Thank you for the useful update!
    Particularly pleased with the appearance of the “View more” on the wall! It is very convenient, because the wall will not be overcrowded. Now you can write long news and notes.
    I will wait the entry of new products into force!

  2. Hello,

    when will there be smileys? and subforums? since i miss that a lot whats a website without smileys haha and people ask for that

  3. – embedded videos are not playable on-site, no need to leave for external destinations.

    i dont get this?

  4. How about comment replies? So you don’t have to leave your profile to reply to comments left by someone else? Heck, even if it worked like comments in newsfeeds, that would be awesome.

  5. In the photo update can you add the feature to delete old large picture files? Right now now the database stores all pictures even after downsized. So mostly there are two large pictures for every picture loaded. Also there is no way to load pictures via url from external site.

  6. Guys, have you had a chance to look into problem with email encoding? Is there a fix for that? I’m using Russian as a default language on my site and the language is the biggest problem for me so far.. I’ve also posted my question on support forum, but it seems like noone knows how to fix it 🙁

  7. Guys, as always, your suggestions and reports are welcome at the appropriate places. Blog is not a suitable place for discussing details.
