2 suggestions I have for the site. Answered
Firstly, I think we should be able to reply directly to the topics posted in the "Site updates" category. The reason why I think this is because otherwise discussions on recent updates spill everywhere else, such as other forum topics, or ibles, or answers, and that just creates a discussion irrelevant to the original post. This happens especially on knex instructables.
Second, I suspect this might be already done, but I think we should have an option to be notified of when someone we subscribe to posts a forum topic. Note I said "Option" since some people might not like getting notified on when people they subscribe to post topics, while people like me might want that. If it's already happening, I really don't see any evidence of it at all.
In any case, thanks for taking the time to hear me out. Peace.
