Re: The BuddyPress UI Design and conceptual approach to Social Networking
My ONLY beef with the forums is it does not work like the activity stream. I would have it where the replies work just like on the activity stream. Somebody can post in the topic or reply to a post in the topic But each time somebody replies then that topic goes back to the top like a forum. Activity streams move too fast and things go under the fold too quickly for forum/ blog based discussions. Facebook fixed this problem by giving you the option to filter your news feed by popular topics. I suggest adding that to the activity stream as well as a last replied commented filter. So things that get replied to bump to top.
