    Well. I seem a lot has happened while I was gone.

    Can someone just list all the new features and stuff? I read the thread about it, but I'm just curious if there's any not on it.

    Thank you!

    Yes, all members can create polls!
    Some of the other features include
    1. the ability to copy and paste images
    2. much simpler process to insert images
    3. "follow" members (very similar to the buddy lists on the old platform) and get notifications of their posts (if you choose to have them)
    4. UNLIMITED PM and image storage
    5. the ability to use Rich Text editor the same as you would using Microsoft Word
    6. the ability to quote multiple things without fuss
    7. built in spell check
    8. create lists
    9. write reviews
    10. "like" posts
    11. leave comments on pages (known as articles now) and reviews
    12. create articles and choose who can edit -- just you, you and certain members, or everybody
    and more!!

    Some of the downsides include no more proxy bidding, but they are trying to get that back sometime, hopefully soon.

    Play around and try out some of the features and find more! [​IMG]

    I hadn't been here in a while, either, and WOW! I love the new forum design, looks fantastic and works much better. Good job, whoever does this stuff!
