    I made a modification so you can go to the first unread post in any thread by clicking on the date right below the Thread Title.

    The site now supports tagging .. You can tag other users in your posts by using the @ symbol and their username. A popup box will appear to let you select the username. It is always best to click on the name in the box to make sure it gets set correctly. For example:

    Thank you @WoodysGirl for posting news articles!!

    so far, "ignore" seems to 100% mean it. the people i've ignored don't show up as "you are ignoring this person" - which i hated cause it kinda rubbed your nose in it. what i can't tell yet is if replies to them that quote them also get ignored.

    may be my favorite feature so far.

    After reading the last post in a thread you can hit the top or home button in the lower right hand corner. Better than scrolling.

    I like how long quoted comments now have their own scroll bar instead of the "view entire quote" link.

    I agree. The "View Full Quote" link system was something I created because I hate long quoted posts. The scroll-bar system is easier to use though.

    I love this feature. I wish other website forums were smart enough to do this.

    Oh, I also like how it shows your avatar on threads that you have posted in. This makes it easier to find threads which you have posted a lot in.

    Actually, I believe the thread title link does this as well if they are new posts in the thread.

    If you follow users and they are online, their avatars will show above the users online list on the right side.

    For those who are conscientious about their online presence visibility, I suggest going through the Privacy settings and tweaking it according to your likes/dislikes. There may be profile things that are visible to all visitors and/or members that you may not want visible.
