//Like the old megathread, we have a changelog link here. The reason i didn't want to directly list the contents here is because then the 1st post will be too bloated. Trying to avoid that. I don't feel the content necessarily needs to be in page1 even if reserved or not as i can simply link to other pages. definitely up for discussion.

//I could edit this section now, but i'll leave it like this (with an example layout) for now to give others a chance to read and provide feedback later. I'll just be transfering from V1 to here till then once i've reserved enough posts for future proofing.

// IGNORE THIS POST. It's testing area for this megathread


//changelog doubles up to list when a new subjects is "added" or, "updated" to denote when something changes. Seems a bit iffy to maintain a "added" only list for cleaner look, in addition to a separate updated changelog list. That is why i originally combined the 2 to a single changelog post. Bit too much work for me to maintain 2 separate listings. That said, here is how that would look like using a non changelog listing for subject titles. i added 3 different stylings for comparison. one with quote and one without.The third is direct url which i don't recommend

//also testing changelog relocated to page1 in the first few early posts

// It does look nice and cleaner, however i still require adding commentary in changelog so people can keep track of edits in the megathread. Also keeping 2 separate listings, one for simple listings, and another for full changelogs is simply not practical for me to maintain, just too much work. Either can have 1 or the other but not definitely not both unless someone else wants to do the upkeep work for that. For now i'm leaning toward the current existing changelog system with commentary included. The added and updated tags should be good enough for people to know if it's referring to a new article, or whether an existing one was updated.

My forum recommendations for improving megathreads faq help

- txt cross out tag (for when something becomes outdated but needs an older remainder in place)
- spoiler tag (cuts down drastically on page loading times especially with lots of images and videos. Also potential reducing scrolling issues when browsing)
- like tag (reduces thank you post spam as there is a convenient like system in place as replacement)
