Can we have instant search like discourse has?
When searching for a topic that contains the word github I get the following result:
However it is extremely unintuitive to navigate to that topic from the search result:
When you click on an individual reply and you want to reply to that user, you currently just create a reply starting with @username.
On top of that I'd like for the forum to also keep track of the topic you replied to and give people the option to click open the conversation:
This is an example topic with a couple of replies:
CONTENTS: I'm new here so I decided to make a topic
META: This post has 1 reply in Post Z, click to view that reply.
CONTENTS: I'm not a reply to any previous post in this topic, I'm a general reply to the topic.
CONTENTS: @A Hey!
META: This post is in direct reply to Post X, click to view post X
Instead of the current Upvote - Downvote mechanic, I suggest having multiple "reactions" to a topic, for example:
All Users: Like, Dislike, Genius, Funny, Off-Topic, ...
Moderators/Admin: Promote/Stamp of Approval

There's a couple of things that don't seem to fit with the editor:
