@Akenefick There are 3 components.
Latest Topics: displays only new topics/ events and not the comments.
Latest Posts: displays both new topics/ events as well as the comments on existing topics/ events.
Latest Comments: displays only new comments and not new topics/ events.
This will apply to events that have ended as well. Same components can be used for other discussion styles such as TKB, Blogs.

Thanks for submitting the idea. Let me look into the issue on image upload.
@StanGromer I do agree with you that in this thread, showing 'markatTruth' on top (instead of you having to clear and then select from the default list) after typing @ma would be a better experience. As you already may be aware, we are working on a project to completely reimagine the community experience and we will consider this as part of the project.

@MarkAtTruth You can increase the number of suggestions to show for users and content from Community Admin > Features > @mentions. (You can modify it up to 100).
When you type @, you can continue to type words with space to find the article you are searching for. These results are the same auto-suggest results you get in the search bar.
W.r.t User mentions, when you continue typing, you will get results that match with usernames across the community. To continue to show users in the thread on top even when you type letters after @, would be an enhancement. We will look into it. Can you please submit an idea request for this. Ability to mention places (forum board or a group hub) is in our backlog.

Communities now have support for Events. This new discussion style makes it easier for a community to publish a calendar and handle all aspects around events such as invitations, RSVP, notifications. Events comes with the support for embedding Social Live Videos into an event page.
With Events, you can harness the enthusiasm generated by interactions between your customers, company, and brand ambassadors and foster deeper connections with your customers. Events provide a platform to schedule, announce, inform, and discuss all kinds of topics with as many, or as few, people as you want.
Events can be created at a Community, Category or Group Hub level. An Events node page includes all events created in that node. This page also contains list/calendar views, filter options based on event status & labels.
Events Node Page
There is an Event Details page for each event created in the Community. This page include the details pertaining to the event: Title, Description, Banner, Time & Date, Location field (a free text field to enter physical address or a webinar URL), Tags, Labels, RSVP options (Yes, No, Maybe), Kudos and Comments (inline and threaded).
Event Details Page
Key features of Events include the following:
Embeddable Calendar component: Embed a calendar into any community page to create more awareness on the community events and drive more participation into the events.
Social Videos: Embed YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, Brightcove, Kaltura & Google live videos into an Event Details page.
Youtube video embedded into an event
Notifications: Community members will be notified of an event creation (via invite, subscription) and also receive reminder email before the start of an event.
Search: Community members can search for events. Also, Community Managers can create promoted search rules for events to promote events in the community.
Google Maps Integration: If the event is happening at a physical location, search for the place and include google map into the event page so that members can access the map and find directions seamlessly.
Analytics: View event-specific metrics as part of Community Analytics and derive insights such as who are the community members that engage most with events, which events have highest RSVPs.

In future, we are looking to provide more exciting enhancements such as Support for adding an event to your calendar, Ability to invite to events by emails & Zoom integration.
