Your Main Page is the hub of Think Atheist — the page that gets the most traffic and the page most visitors see first. It's the best place to engage your fellow members. Over the next several weeks, we'll be introducing a bunch of new features to make your Main Page even more compelling.

Rich Text & Media in all of your Main Page modules


Your Activity, Blog, and Forum features will support rich text and media. This means that if someone posts a video, you should be able to play it from the Activity Feed. And if someone posts a forum discussion with a photo or hyperlinks, those should appear on the Main Page as well.

It's a simple change, but making content more engaging on the Main Page is a great way to draw people deeper into the community.

Like & Comment on Status, and post a status from the Main Page


We've seen great traction of the Status feature, which lets members share updates and integrate with third party services like Twitter & Facebook. We'll continue that momentum by improving Status in 2 ways:

1) Let members post a status from the Main Page
2) Let members comment on and like status posts.

Inline Commenting


Finally, we've seen great engagement by allowing Liking inline on the Main Page. We want to take it to the next level and let members comment inline on the Main Page in the Activity Feed and Blog module.

We're just kicking off work on these initiatives, and we'll have more updates as we get closer to releasing. I just wanted to share these projects with you early, and get your initial thoughts and feedback!
