Hi there! You might be concerned about the updating source of the forum, but it was actually updated quite recently!
This also isn't the best topic to discuss this on. Maybe you could make a separate topic in the #meta category? I bet THT would be happy to see what you're requesting in this new update that you speak of. :D
Just please keep in mind that THT works very hard to improve the forum and Hopscotch to meet everyone's needs, and that includes you. They are also very busy, and very recently updated the forum (like I mentioned up there), so maybe when they're ready to update it again they'll take in your considerations and needs.
