Heh. Well some are not super sekrit. Moving and merging threads is way easier. We can merge threads, and it will leave a re-direct on the thread that moved into the other, so that it eliminates the need for us to edit the title with MERGED.

We can actually move posts from one thread to another now. I haven't tried yet on the live forum but this can be handy say if someone accidentally posts in the wrong thread or something. We can also select threads from different forums by checking a box next to the thread, and merge them all together, or move them all at once, etc.

We can double click next to a thread title to edit it, instead of having to open the thread, then click edit, save, etc.

We can soft delete posts so that it makes it a link in the thread and the other mods can see what transpired (members cant see this), instead of just completely deleting the post. Not that we really delete posts here though.

For spammers we can delete the thread and ban the user all in about 1 or 2 clicks.

And many more...

Oh, and thank you for the new changes!

We did get plenty of warning - a couple of weeks ago when Andy purchased the site we were told that changes were coming soon, and then we were told a few days ahead of time exactly when they'd be taking place. I don't think the forum administrators could have been much more accomodating than they were.

I like that when you hover over the title of the thread the first few lines appear. I haven't really explored many of the new feature.

I luuurve multi-quote. It's the better than sliced bread.

I like the online little circle, the hover over the thread and see info (no longer do I have to waste time going into a thread that turned out to be sucky)

New Posts is easier than it was before
And reason for editing.
And PM/Notices by your name where you're logged in.
Fonts, colors, sizes are much easier than before

I love the fact that I can scroll to the top of the page and not have the bookmark thingy drop down anymore....................... No more accidentally clicking on digg
reason for editing is fun
also how easy/fast it is to quote, change font, color
being able to add comments in profiles
Thanks everyone for all the hard work!
