Anyone know how to view new posts and then see the thread starting where the new posts start, like we used to be able to do? Its been years since I used vbulletin. Not seeing how I do that, other than opening the last page and then scrolling up and down looking for stuff that doesnt look familiar.

Oh yeah, and the 'no posting for 30 seconds after the last post' is a bit annoying. I can type WAY faster than that.

Please try again - we are still tweaking options. You should be able to upload a custom avatar. Avatars are size limited to 80 x 80 pixels.

In your user CP you can chose show newest post first as an option under

>edit options
>>Thread display mode

Choose show newest first.

You can view the site leaders by going to the forums page ans scrolling down to see a link that says "view forum leaders"

Also staff names are bolded in the member list at the bottom of the page. if you click on the name, you should have an option to PM them.

The best way to get your name updated is actually to use the Contact Us form at the bottom of the page. This will create a ticket in our help desk and allow us to pull up your account to make the changes. Please be patient as we are handling certain tickets first (like helping our members get logged in).

Interestingly, the little 'downtick' to go to new posts in a thread sometimes decides to take you to some random point in the thread...
