Threading for email notifications
I'd love it if TalkYard would make it possible for email clients to create email threads that matched the forum threads. So if I had email notifications enabled, and there were 5 posts in topic A, and 3 posts in topic B, and 6 posts in Topic C, I'd h...

Consider making likes more visible
When I like something myself, it's very visible thanks to the red heart. But if somebody else likes my post, 99% of the time I don't realize it, since I don't get notified about it and it visually is pretty dimmed. Perhaps once the notification syste...

Add a border to images
Most screenshots have white background, like the forum, which makes it hard to see where a screenshot starts and ends. This can be confusing when screenshotting text. Could you add the "shadow class" to images by default? https://about.gitlab.com/han...
"Votes" column doesn't show on "All categories"
On my forum, all of the categories have votes enabled, but on "All categories", there's no votes column. I feel like people are unlikely to choose a specific category since I have so few, but that pretty much means that they'll never see the amount o...

Filter posts by type
I would like to be able to filter posts by type: problem/question/discussion/idea. This way we would not need a separate category for each of those. Often users post in the wrong category anyway, and I think it is confusing to select the same thing t...
