What about an automated welcome email for new members?   Could give a brief summary of rules, encourage them to jump in.

Hey, I'm in customer service.  So far, I can't find such a feature.  There are actually a lot of settings in the back that you little people don't get to see.  For example, the other day, when I went to respond to Blueblood, I almost edited his post.  Whoops.

I dig the stats panel. It allows me to quantify my shame.

I have to say the old site looks warmer and friendlier, and this one more Spartan, possibly due to the typefaces and size of the text, as well as the background color. Are these choices you have made?

I can change some of that, yes.  I will endeavour to make it better after work.

I have a minor complaint...  if I click on the link at the very top of the page... the one that says "Canadian Political Events",  it takes me to a page with nothing on it except a link that says "Click here to proceed directly to the forum!"

...uh...

Why not just have the "Canadian Political Events" link take you directly to the forum?  I'm just used to having a link at the top of the page that goes to the forum index.

I have the same complaint as you.  When I activated the ezBlocks system to make the chat room, it replaced the direct link to the forum when pressing home.  That was the best compromise I could come up with.

BTW, naming it ezBlocks was almost certainly a joke.

I found the button to fix it.  This is new to me.

You know, Smallc, for never having done this before, you're stumbling about pretty gracefully.

As for suggestions, the new skin looks better but it makes the forum icons harder to see. If you can change those so it's easier to differentiate between forums with new content and the others, that would be nice.
