It should be made so when there is a lot of events by one user with a certain action (edit, delete, move, etc.) get put in a openable box:This is an EXTREMELY specific use-case. I see almost nobody wanting to use this feature, and it's not trivial to implement. If you can convince me or get more people to agree with it, I'll work on it.I'm seeing an event wall full of Trump building a wall often now.

Could you add the ability to change your password without having to click 'forgot password?' That would be a nice feature.
Could programs with REMOVED keys be shown below the other programs, maybe with some kind of separation?Both added. You can change your password from userhome now, and it even autofills your email for you.
Being able to sort submissions (or even forum posts and activities) in reverse order would be pretty handy for people who want to find old things pretty easy, or even admins having to sort out the old cruft of moons gone by. A future goal could be to implement an "infinite-scrolling" option for activity/forums/submissions that loads the next page in over AJAX when you reach the bottom. It should totally be an option though, because I'm sure a lot of people wouldn't prefer it. A device-specific choice, even.
I feel like the users need some way to "flag" dead threads without having to post on said thread. That way the administration just have to verify it instead of look for it. I assume the "flag" button is used to prevent racism, sexism, prejudice, etc. But it could also be useful to flag dead threads. I believe it would require a drop down menu so that we could choose an option and maybe on the administration end there would be a way to prioritize the type of flag issued? For example, a more serious problem comment flagged as an attempt at doxxing could immediately push an email to the administration crew, while a simple dead thread flag would just be sent as a regular notification. [Lots of edits!] Humm this may not be a great idea as a but hurt user could abuse the flag system to spam the admins. There would have to be a limit to how many flags per 'X' there could be.
I assume the "flag" button is used to prevent racism, sexism, prejudice, etc.It's generic. All that a flag does is bring admin attention to a post. There have been a few instances where an accidental flag or overreaction which admins chose to take no action with because we're not here for censorship still brought their attention to a dead enough thread, which they chose to close. If you want to use it like that, go ahead. We're already pretty good at guessing what the flagger intended. If it becomes a problem we'll just ask you to stop.
abuse the flag systemif someone does this and won't stop when asked we'll just ban them, but again this attitude is already in place and doesn't need a reworking of the flagging system. Also, whatsisface was referring to the project being dead, as opposed to the thread. He just then decided that it would be a good idea to make an unhelpful post on it, as if the project would suddenly be revitalized.
