Question Community ad replaces characters with question marks
Recently, I saw this community ad: Question marks replace unknown characters in community ad The actual title is 'Caution' and 'cautious' with ʃ or ʒ? The IPA characters seem to be unknown to whatever is rendering the ad, and so they were replaced by question marks. This is bad for obvious reas...

Question Add a way to change the flag reasons for a community
In the mod tools, we can change the close reasons. This is helpful when a community possibly needs more or less than normal. However, there isn't a way to change the flags, which means that we might close reasons that don't have a relevant flag to them. Of course, the "other" flag exists, but it w...

Question "last activity" on the post history of questions is misleading.

For example, https://meta.codidact.com/posts/278908/history correctly states who edited the post last and when. However, for questions, this is not the case. It shows the same last activity...

Comment Post #277571 @manassehkatz You wouldn't need to store timestamps, just read/unread status, so it would just be the table of users and the list of posts they've read. Updating the lists might be a pain though.

Question Indicate which posts in the category feed have unread updates
Right now, if a category has new/updated posts, a small dot appears next to the category name. Could this feature be extended to posts within the category as well? While it's not that hard to just manually see which posts have unread changes, it would be convenient to have an indicator.
