But again, you're not really proposing how you'd improve it. I can agree that having options as to what gets displayed would not be a bad thing, but how you'd present it in an improved manner is another thing. I offered one possible solution above, but if you have a problem clicking tabs, then you probably also wouldn't enjoy clicking to expand a bunch of tree menus either. Which brings me back to square one. People are complaining about the readability of the current activity page, but I'm not seeing any better solutions being proposed to improve it. Perhaps just a clear separation of all activity by date would be a minor improvement, but other than that I'm not sure how you'd better present it.sanction9
The latest activity displays all kind of stuff like who liked what post, who posted a new profile post, etc.
Obviously it should be a setting for admins to decide what kind of content they want in their streams. You could disable all and just have newest posts.
But for example this site has articles and showcase and resources. When someone adds a new item to those, how does that get noticed?
So it would be nice if they would be included. There are tons of other addons which would benefit from it. Of course the stream must be minimalistic as possible, for exampe with fake prefixes (or sth. similar) to give you hint what kind of content is in the stream line.
Most people are narrowly focused on threads and posts is true. But the system pushes them to that because all the other stuff is just clutter and useless. Wastes too much time.

and imagine the prefixes would give you a hint about the content type like "image, post, attachments, resource etc.".
As you see this addon also uses tabs, which again is just clutter.
Also, judging by your comment that the current system "pushes" them to it, you seem to think that most people, if given the choice, would end up preferring to have all their content mushed together on one page, and I'm not really sure that would be the case. I feel fairly confident that you would then have a lot of users asking how they could separate content to focus on what's most important to them. I suppose you could add filters to the page, which would be kind of cool, but I'm not sure that would be any "easier" than just clicking a tab....
