I'd be more than happy to accept it if the "similar threads" notification would work. I can only speculate. It would have to search the thread title, not the replies, and the key words would have to have a correlation. Both of these, well...not even Google can do that properly.

yah that seems like a hard one. it seem like GS is not so good (i hope they don't pay a lot for it!), and to do it on AG would be hard to! it seems like it is all a ketch 22!! so i geuss we should be happy with the free for use (cost them) thing provited. (no offence)

and to do it (GS) on AG would be hard


I don't want the layout of GS to be in the AG forums! that isn't very good. what i want is to be able to say if it's a question, problem, announcement, or idea. that's all i really want. i don't want the AG forums to look like the GS page or to work like the GS page.

Maybe it could search the words in the titles, not the titles themselves, and if two titles have 3 or more words in common the same thread thing comes up. Or if the titles are less that 3 words, 2 words or 1.

We'll have a better search system in AG3, and depending on the forum engine we use/build, we may have the ability to merge several threads into a single thread.

AG3 forums aren't our priority at the moment, so we don't have very much to contribute, officially, about how they'll work, features, or whether we can migrate old posts or not.

oh i though you where talking about the feedback! sorry!
then cormyn is right! adding a icon on the side of every forum topic to tell what type of topic(prase, question, problem, or so) and a amout of pages type format would be nice and is usaly how they do it ni a lot of forums.
but as cormyn said

Well, to be honest, GetSatisfaction feedback will *always* be part of the site, so if you have problems, etc., it's best to post them there.

The new forums will still have a support area, but all new "suggestions" for the site will be redirected to GetSatisfaction.

okay, that sounds nice!like a little place to put them and organize them and then pu them to action at some time.

so will AG3 be a always updating site? and not a version after version type site? or what? meaning will you guy all was be working always to improve it, and it will show for us. instaed of making a site and then taring it down and making a new one every time yo what change?

Yeah, the new architecture of the AG3 web site will allow us to add more features much more quickly than this version of the web site. I doubt we'd ever need another entire overhaul of the web site like AG3, unless we find some amazing new framework or programming language that makes it even easier/faster.

And yes, we'll be constantly adding new things too. We're already working on a list of features, most of them were user-submitted suggestions, to add to the site once we "launch" the site with the features we planned for the core AG3 site.
