I figured I would start a new thread, just to post updates, etc. the big news is the Search index is (finally) rebuilt, so when you search or use "Advanced Search," it will get results from all the posts finally.
This also means a few new features work - if you go to your user profile - or mine, for example, there's a tab for "Post Areas" which will show you how many times that person has posted in what areas, which is kind of neat to see.
You'll notice there's no "Home" button on the green(or blue-depending on what version you're using) bar anymore, and we put "Today's Posts" up there.
Also, the column on the right shows people's avatars now, even those of us who have been around for a while ...
And if you log on from a mobile device, like a smart phone, there's special version for those which should make browsing a whole lot easier!
