Question Is there a reason for preventing user profile content being less than 30 characters?
When editing my user profile the interface prevents me from entering fewer than 30 characters. I can understand imposing a minimum length on question titles and post content, but I don't see a reason that a profile page needs to be a certain length. Is there a reason I'm missing or was this just a de...

Question Communities drop down disabled when editing profile
On most pages of Codidact there is a little drop down arrow at the very top right of the page, which usually displays a list of Codidact communities when clicked. However, when on the "Edit" tab of the user profile page, the drop down arrow is present in the usual place but does nothing when clicked....

For a long time I had no content in my user profile, then today I added something to see how it would look. I then changed my mind and decided to go back to having nothing. However, there is a minimum number of characters on the "Profile" field of the "Edit" tab, preventing me from going back to leav...

Question Hot Posts curiosity
I'm curious about the list of "Hot Posts" shown in the right hand panel of Codidact pages. So here are some completely unimportant questions that I'm intrigued to know more about: - How is the list of Hot Posts produced? - Is there a scoring mechanism to determine how hot a post is? - Are the di...

Question Search does not search the title of posts
The search only appears to look in the body of a post, not in its title. For example, searching Codidact Meta for "determine" finds posts that have "determine" in the body, but does not include the post [What is an easy way to determine my Trust Level] which contains "determine" only in the title ...

Comment Post #287011 Thanks for raising an issue Monica. I did try manually changing the url to include `sort=activity` and it didn't change the order of the list like it does for `sort=age`, so I guess that means there is at least some backend change required. Great to know it's on the horizon though.

Comment Post #280055 Was about to comment that maybe the Outdoors community would benefit from a separate category for photo contests rather than everything have to be Q&A, and then checked and saw that this is already done. Great to see individual communities not having to constrain everything to the Q&A format.
