Yeh, found it after a while.. cleverly hidden (;

Weird that I havn't noticed the penguin before.. odd indeed.. (:


Lets see, more new features..


- the timesettings imho are a bit smarter now
- ability to use different kinds of sunscriptions (digest etc)
- Subscribed Threads works a tad odd.. As there is nothing to select the timeframe over which to look except the default or all..
- the My LQ menu gets thrown to the middle of the page, so if its really long, you kinda have to search for it.. d:
- Forum descriptions showing even inside threads.. I definately like that.. More likely to notice that im in the enterprise forum when coming to answer a Q from the RSS feed.. (;
- possibility to ignore certain forums in the New Posts section.. Was before just a set amount of forums, now its free to choose from all..
- Adjustable size for the reply boxes, better formatting bars to give quick access to formatting code
- Deeper shade of blue everywhere.. I love it.. (:

Thats it for now, Ill be back when I remember more.. d:

The list of sub forums under Linux - Distributions has changed order - I thought the Slackware forum had gone AWOL

Also I normally browse with my browser window at 800x600 and at first I thought the new design made the forums look really cluttered - but I'm getting used to it now

Anyway, a job well done Jeremy and others involved

I didn't mean to imply that Pat V had stopped maintaining Slackware, only that the slackware forum had seemingly gone - until I reread the distributions list

There's now an radio selection to choose between natural language and boolean, so no matter what your searching style you should be able to accomplish it with a single box. I personally liked the multiple boxes better. Most people didn't though (and just look at how google, yahoo, etc look).

Thanks for the feedback everyone - keep it coming!
