We have upgraded the forums version. This new version fixed a lot of things plus added and changed features. Below is a list of the ones for you, the end user:
Multiple Choice Polls
See who is browsing specific forums with you!
mark read per forum
get new/get daily per forum
In-reply thread rating
Thread rating displayed on thread
Who voted (if turned on)
Forum Leader page
New way to navigate multiple pages of a thread
The rest of the features you cannot see (admin features) but they fix a lot of bugs and make your visit even better!
