Question from the mobile browsing side. Is it an intentional effect tat when your phone is sideways the forum goes into a more normal.message board and when normal it goes to a su0er mobile variation?

More or less. It depends on the screen width of your phone.

Oh by the way, you can now list your social media stuff in your profile and register/log in using your social media accounts like Twitter and Facebook.

did we always have a "like" button?  Did you already announce that?

Nope, that's new.  And still a work in progress. :)

Not sure how I feel about Like buttons.

I hate popularity contests.

MODIFIED -- Don't mind me guys, just testing out image linking and making sure that still works. LoL! Golly I sure do miss those 90's hits. Thanks for reminding me of that one Star. Totally throwing that on a spotify playlist or two.

It's only a matter of time before Dice figures out how to Like her own posts on here too.

I don't hate the like buttons for individual posts, it basically takes away the small clutter caused by someone quoting a post to say "^this" or "I agree"

Likes for entire threads feels really pointless though and confuses me a bit since its the same color as the new posts tag.

No no no no.
You're supposed to 'like' his post.

Likes now only apply to individual posts and counts no longer show on profiles.

Also, we now have a main site menu above which is mobile-responsive.

New forum member icons! Let me know how you like them.

I laboured long and hard to make sure everyone still knows Dice is a girl.

Thanks for all the hard work, Hidoshi!  Reply text size is better (could still be a bit smaller, but maybe that's just my taste) and the icons look fantastic.  A beautiful upgrade from the classic ones.
