Maker Forums updated to Discourse 3.3.0.beta1: Security updates, more likes, more discoverable

Maker Forums has been updated to the latest release of Discourse.

Now all reactions, not only :heart:, count as “likes”, and I have applied this retroactively. Previously, the other reactions like :+1: and :tada: would show in the UI as a reaction, but would not count as a “like”

Civilized Discourse Construction Kit, the company behind Discourse, are planning to launch a feature to make Discourse communities easier to discover. They are thoughtfully making this opt-in rather than opt-out. Maker Forums is a public community and the whole point of having a forum here is to make our shared knowledge discoverable, so Maker Forums is opted in.


I :+1: this change
