For the beta testers of the new SQLA2 site:

What are the features you like the most compared to the current SQLA site?

Some suggestions

  • Using MySybase credentials to login
  • Fully formatted comments
  • Nested/hierarchical comments
  • Promoting comments to answers (and vice versa)
  • Integrating images without having to use an external image hosting service
  • Attachments
  • ...

(Yes, I raise this question to document and collect what nice improvements have been made...)

This is not necessarily a feature, but I am most excited about both the eventual inclusion of the old newsgroup data and the new questions and answers from the newsgroup community.

Of your list, promoting comments to answers is my favorite, followed closely by nested comments.

Yeah, the NNTP import will be the most important and exciting part, I agree - but we will still have to be patient for now:)

...or accept the NNTP archive here, sigh.

I like the easy upload of images without having to care about an image hosting service.

I guess by this means one can explain more with pictures than with words in SQLA2... (for issues where this will help:)

Based on the frequency my comments contain typos or formatting issues, one of my fresh favourites is the ability to edit comments (according to Graeme - at least for 60 minutes after they have been created).
