@Sherlock @Dorien glad to hear that. There will be few improvements on the microblog in the weekend (getting older messages on scroll, displaying most popular hashtags instead of tournaments chats, displaying a message when you are exploring a microblog and something new will appear, timeline tabs on the profiles with possibility of adding short messages).

@Volleybox Very cool. I'd still call it "Chat", though. It's more inviting. I have no idea what a microblog is

@Volleybox great movement to microblogging! Will the search box be implemented for microblog? Regular case: just want to find some info about [player_name] that was posted here

@VitaliiLatysh after using a hashtag on the microblog, the thread will appear on player/team/tournament/arena profile, here's the example: https://volleybox.net/maciej-muzaj-p861/hashtags_comments.

@sitenoise from the technical point of view it is a microblog. I am aware that a lot of users may not understand what a microblog is, but I'm still not sure that "chat" is what I'm looking for. I was thinking also about inventing some new volleyball-specific word for that feature, something like "Volleyblog", "Microvolley", "Volleyroom".

@Volleybox That's cool. As long as it's front and center, I guess it doesn't matter what it's called. It appears to be working. 

I'm curious/confused about how to follow "what's new". I got an email notification for this 'recalls you' post. Clicking on it just brought me to the top of the 'microblog'. I had to scroll and hunt for this post. Clicking the 'notification' icon highlighted this thread alone. That works well. But what if you would have added something to this thread without 'recalling' me specifically? Would I have some way of knowing about it?

@sitenoise it was a bug and it have been just fixed.
