Sorry for the size of that banner. Just trying out some new functions. :mrgreen:
(There's an X in the top-right corner to dismiss it, btw. ;))

Alright, the biggest issues have been dealt with (the YouTube embedding problem was a particular bitch to get right). Here's what you need to know:
  • YouTubes are now automatically embedded, so all you have to do is paste the url and you're done. (If you want to embed porn videos like Pornhub and xHamster, you do still need to do that manually.)
    (The only drawback is that the urls don't get added below the embed anymore. I'm hoping the issue where mobile users couldn't see embeds has been resolved by now. If not, let me know.)
  • As announced, the reputation system is gone. In its stead you can now 'like' posts by clicking on the green thumb in the corner of each post. At the bottom of the page (or via the "Quick links" menu at the top left) you can see who has garnered the most likes overall. Each time one of your posts gets a like, you'll get a notification. You can turn that off in the User Control Panel.
  • In that same Control Panel, you can also set the default width of the forum, and decide whether or not you want links to open in a new tab.
  • Finally, you can collapse forum areas that you never visit by clicking on the little minus on the right of each area title.
There are still some other small things I need to fix (the search doesn't work yet, the topic notification icons all look the same, I want to tweak a few more things in the 'like' system, I still have to put up the GM banner), but none of those have a big impact on how you navigate the forum, so you don't need to know about those.

If you have any questions or remarks, feel free to ask/state them!

Other than that, keep on glovin'! :D
