It wouldn't be that you now get returned to the last page of the topic after posting a reply, would it? Although that has been around for a couple of months, I think. Very useful, though.

Say... How long have we been able to hide the Recent Visitors thing?

I've GOT IT! The forum is no longer a bulletin board with blackish background and greenish-blue/purple text! ;o)

Oh god yes, let's do something for St Patrick's day. Green backgrounds are SO easy to read from. Yes.

Simon's amusing alt-FAQ hasn't gone up, has it? As that would require him to finish it...

We appreciate your concern.
It is noted and stupid.

You could always hide from PNTF....

An evil color scheme is coming up. Fear it.

Another change I've noticed is that the profiles don't open in new windows anymore.

Charles: when are you going to kill the suspense and let all know what the major changes are that we seem to be skipping right over?

The philosopher's stone. Those who possess it are no longer bound by the laws of equivalent exchange in alchemy. They gain without sacrifice and create without equal exchange. We searched for it, and we found it.

Every time the version number down below increments, there's either a major redesign of the architecture of a component (i.e. rewriting the file locking routines, etc) or an addition of a major component.

Obvioulsy the search is back. There are some minor changes, such as the additional user levels and the forwarding back to the right page after you reply / edit....

There are also some not so minor changes that still go unnoticed, such as the new pagination links, the missing contact us / homepage link down below, and other niftyness.

There are a handful of things I've added but not enabled here... first is polling - I don't think we have a need for it here. It'll be added to the Lounge or somesuch at some point in the future.

The second is user avatars. I do not think the community would mix well with the things. Too much clutter.

*clicks a profile link*

*watches the new window open*

Erm...

Anyway, I'd agree about the avatars. I always thought those things looked kind of silly.

What is an avatar, in this context?

That will be samll pictures, either beside or under your user name, coming soon to the Trekbbs. I've seen them used on ezboards, and chuckie is right, they are clutter.

MissManners has a nice one at the troll kingdom:

Oh, those. I agree, they make the place look messy.

Even though I'm not in favor of them, I would point out that I've usually seen them under a person's name, which at least keeps the left-side column a little narrower.
