Cool! I get to celebrate my 500th post all over again!  It's like a second birthday.

Correct.

So what's allowed in the signature? Any change to that?

RE: Home cinema

Like the new lay out alot so congrats to all at WHF!

 RE the picture suddenly appearing on your profile, would it be that the new system now recognises pictures that you have previously tried to upload via the old system but that never appeared? This is what seems to have happened on my profile as the last time i tried to upload a profile picture it was the same one that has now mysteriously appeared today...not complaining atall i might add, it was just a thought.

Great my avatar pic has appeared, but where most of the smileys gone? No thumbs up... :( 

Ditto all of the above Sad

 

Will the sigs re-appear? (Was useful to see folks' kit setup/combo.)

 

Good job with site's 'seamless transition', though [would have placed 'thumbs up' emoticon here...]

I think it's also culled those posts that were dependent on pruned (i.e. Moderated) branches - though I probably shouldn't be discussing that...

No profiles? Any option to 'reverse' the forum? I usually have the latest post showing first! I know there's the option in each thread, but is there a universal option?

Not sure I understand this - where are posts showing in ascending order?

Actually, the main problem is that I forgot to update everybody's post count after uploading all the forum posts...

RE: Home cinema

Each post has a reply option, but at the bottom there's still the big red reply button, which is where I clicked to write this*. So, will it be like the IMdB where if you click to reply to a particular post, that poster gets an email? If so, was it ever thus? Causes certain types on certain fora a lot of angst. Um, laughing smiley here, except there isn't.

*Just noticed it says I'm replying to Andrew's first post.
