Dated Posts

I am active on the Kiwi forum.  The players have requested to date the posts so that it is easier to find and if possible to add a ( ) of if a new post has been posted.  Kiwi has done nothing about this, can you do something about it?

Hello Karen,
1. You are able to order topics by "Last Updated".
2. Try to use this one http://kiwi.userecho.com/users/1157266-karen-bierman/updates/ This page shows project updates for your account. Reset all and then you will see all new updates.
3. We are planning to add some mark to the topics if it has some updates for a user.
BAD, I'M UNSATISFIED
First of all, I should not have to go to my user profile to see the new posts.  The home page is a mess.  The players have requested in several posts that the home page be more user friendly as you don't know if there are any new posts unless you get notifications.  There are times I check my email and I have 121 emails from Echo regarding posts.  What I was asking was if you can do anything about dating or putting the most recent subject on top on the home page.  It is a pain to go my user profile and see what I am following and new posts that have been posted.

Thank you for your response.  It has been two months since this issue has been brought up and yet nothing has been done.  When is there going to be a change in the forum posts to make it more user friendly?  With all of the posts and all of the stuff going on it would make it much easier to date the posts most recent and add a little (  ) if there are any new comments.
Why do you make it so complicated and why does it take so long for something to get done?
Hello Karen,
You are most active user in KIWI project and your opinion is really important for us. But, anyway, let me explain again what options do you have:
1. You are able to see all updates special for your profile by this link https://kiwi.userecho.com/users/1157266-karen-bierman/updates/ This is the best way to see what new is happened. If you will use this link and mark topics as read, next time you will see there topics with new updates only. I think it really works for your situation. Just try to use it.
2. You are active in the "Shipwrecked: Lost Island"
So, if you want to see topics by updates on this forum, scroll page down and you will see  the section "General discussions". This section has all topics, ordered by last updated date. Each topic has information when it was updated.



So, for example, if you have checked this forum 1 day ago, you have only one update to check.

If you still wants to get an answer why we do not add ( )  for a topic with new comment we are ready to answer on it.
If we will add just ( ) it doesn't make sense for for a basic user. User will not understant what does it mean. We need some good design solution that will make sense for all users before we will implement it. Also we have "updated" date that help to recognise how long time this topic didn't was commented.
