I've released a lot of new items over the last couple days.  Here's a quick list of new things to check out:

Edit your Forum Name by clicking on the Account link (once your logged in) and then look for Edit on the right side.

If you subscribe to a Forum Board, you will now see links in your daily email that will pop you right to the topic your interested in.  You can also reply to messages with a single click!  To subscribe to a Board, head to the forum, click Options on the top line and then Boards on the second line.  Check the box next to the board your interested in and hit Change. Each morning, you'll receive an email if anything new was posted to the board.

The new Buggy Id Engine is now in production. I've changed features like "Bump Scoop" into 2 separate features to ease the id process.  All features have example pictures. 

Thanks to the help of Jeff Gum, Maps are much improved and the home page has a new look with "New on DBA" moved to its own page.  I'll be taking recommendations for a new home page picture also. My only request is that its a wide, short picture similar to the current one.

I'm also in the process of testing a "Forward to Yahoo Groups" trick that would also messages posted to this forum to be forwarded to Yahoo Groups as a way to transition groups to the DBA.

Drop me a message & let me know what you think of the changes.  Paul...

How do you mark new posts as read so that they don't stay new forever?
Is this a problem for me because I use FireFox?

If you go directly to the DBA Forum (from a bookmark on your local machine), posts will not be marked as new which can be handy if you get half way through reading new posts and want to come back later to pick up where you left off.

If you want to reset the "new posts", click the "Forum" button on the left of the page.  This will reset all the new posts.
