    Not really, and this is my biggest problem with the new format. "my posts" used to just open a window with a list of YOUR posts by date, "recent activity" just shows . . . recent activity across the forum. And "my posts" now shows any thread you ever posted in, organized by which thread has the most recent post. Or am I missing something?

    Anyway, nice to see progress, the posts per screen is still low and there needs to be greater contrast between the thread title, the most recent post in the thread, and threads read.
    A new, better way to categorize B&S (sizes ect.) is on the way, right?

    Any chance of getting rid of the white bars around avatars? Obviously the least important thing ever, but they are pretty unattractive.

    I swear I didn't report them. I just stick with the obvious stuff.

    how do we embed youtube videos? I tried using the video button and entering the entire address (as I saw when I quoted someone who successfully embedded a youtube video) but for me the link just shows up.

    It sounds like you're doing it right - I successfully embedded a youtube video by pasting the entire url after hitting the video button... maybe try some different videos and just hit the "preview" button to see if any show up? Maybe other people have some ideas...

    You can just post the URL between [VIDEO] and [/VIDEO]. There is also a helpful button to embed videos at the top of the BB browser. Looks like a part of a film reel. Here is one of Leonard Cohen's masterpieces.

    the post in question



    that is the post where I tried embedding a video. I put the entire url between the tags, but it still came out as just a url.

    lol. I think that that should be Kyle's new title. On that note, how do you guys feel about "Opposite Santa" for me? Sort of in the vein of "j stands for jerk".

    Are you using the BB editor? I don't think that it works the same in richtext.

    I'm sad. I can't find the threads I've posted in like I used to be able to (advanced search using 'NORE') and when I do perform that search it brings up threads I no longer wish to post in. Whatup wit dat?

    I had a hard time with this too. Advanced Search>"NORE">Filter by Posts only>(scroll to the bottom)>Instead of "Relevance", select "Update/Posting Date".

    Pow.
