Hi, community members!
As I'm sure you can tell, we launched an improved Silicon Labs community experience.
But this is more than just a facelift. The community will continue to be a great space for you to ask technical questions, share your ideas, and learn more about our latest solutions; however, we do have some key changes. We now have higher quality search, a product-centric architecture, and improved integration between our technical resource library and the community.
Our mission is to help you build something great, and would love to hear from you. Please share your feedback in the replies below.
I don't remember posting this empty item:
Where did this come from?
I'm pretty sure I and others had answered below topic, but now it has no replies at all ?!
For your past activities, please check the 'Acitivites' tab on this page: https://www.silabs.com/community/profile.html/home/users/e/ejxQmetrT086P2jpKJOM/profile
Regarding the other issues, I will take a look and get back to you.

Can you try this filter button to see recently updated content?
I also just saw that button and tried it out. But then it totally forgot all the items I had just read as being read.
And the top item was suddenly from 2014, though that just might have been correct (haven't checked) since it still displays the date of the original post.
I cannot check either since the replies have no time & date anymore. This thread is the top when sort by last update:
Viewing my past activities is not quite what I was looking for.
In the old forum I used to open up the subfora with unread messages and first open the unread messages that had an arrow indicating I had previously participated in that thread. This way I could see if my answer had made things clear or gave rise to more questions.
Vinmierlo, regarding the links that you shared with us, we confirm that this item has an error that wasn't imported completely from the previous community. We are woking on resolving this and similar ones in the next few days.
The other link was about 'moved' content notification which we weren't able to import to the new community unfortunately.
Regarding the Flag feature, please use it to notify a spam message.
For the following issues, I created requests to internal team to work on. I will let you know once the status is updated.
It is pretty crazy thet you have to click "askl a question" when you are there to (possibly) answer one

I've been generally disappointed with the changes as well, in addition to agreeing with the comments from above on posts not having a timestamp and not being able to quickly see which posts have changed since I last visited the forum from above I have a couple more thoughts:
The new format shows substantially fewer posts on the forum page than the old forum because printing the post text takes up space. It is harder to see what has changed because of this.
The ability to sort by last activity is a nice addition, as is the abilty to edit posts.
I can't tag someone else in a post by prefixing their username with an @ symbol, which I liked but is not a critical feature.
Seperating longer threads into pages is making it harder to see discussion. I would prefer to have the entire thread available on a single page than missing additional comments because the conversation is split into multiple pages. Questions which require a series of posts to diagnose a problem are especially prone to this.
I also am frustrated with the inability to resize the size of the response window and preview a post before submitting it.
One of the things that makes SIlabs stand out to me is the support available on the forums, but I feel like this switch is making the forums harder to find and use. It seems like this transition is the result of pressure to jump onto a new technology that isn't quite suited to the purpose rather than keeping what was working and focusing on incremental improvements. The Nordic forums use a 'Stack Overflow' look similar to what you have just transitioned to and I have been frustrated with them for some time, I'm sorry to see Silabs switch that way as well.
Best regards, Rob
