Howdy everyone, we've finally got the final build of the latest forum software installed, and there are quite a bit of new features and changes; you can feel free to read the official release announcement
(posted by my development counterpart) if you're curious.
When you upload photos to the forums they will now be compressed, which will make them take less time to be downloaded, and will take less space on the server.
The "My Account" dropdown is now under your username at the top right of the page.
More enhanced Stop Forum Spam library (the service that keeps spammers off of the forums)
Posts will display OP when the original poster replies later in the thread; this will make it easier to tell who's the originator in longer threads.
Users without an avatar will have one with the first letter of their display name.
A "return to top" chevron will display on the right side of the page on long pages.
The Private Message indicator will always show to the left of your username in the header.
The Active Topics page has been rewritten
