I made this suggestion back in November. I’m not sure if a decision was made to change this or not:

There has been discussion on this off and on for a few years. This issue github.com/forem/forem/issues/1716 had good discussion both for and against this idea. I ended up closing it in the repo because it had been open for a long time without any really consensus. I'd be happy to open up a post here for people to discuss the feature if you would like :)

I do agree that there are some really good points being made on both sides of this. Personally I like the suggestion that the feature could be a preference a user can toggle on/off in their settings. Users have unique behavior habits that they've built over time and giving them the option to choose would be great.

Hey there, I also had a load of other suggestions as issues on Github, should I just resubmit them all here under the request and features tags?

Quite a few of them I left opened and labeled as potential RFC as I believed they aligned with our product roadmap and I wanted the team would take a look at them. You can leave those ones in Github.

If there were any that I closed that you would still like to see please feel free to open up a discussion here around them. You can label them just like you mentioned and maybe with the discuss label as well! Thanks Lee.
