1) We've added a "New Posts" section at the bottom so you can see the most recent 30 posts as quickly as possible. A shortcut link is at the top of the forum "See the Newest Posts >>"
2) Post sorting has been changed to a default of "Recent Activity" this way people can bump up a topic in case it gets buried and you'll also be able to see which threads are most active and popular.
4) A "New Member" section was added to get everyone acclimated quickly. I know I definitely didn't cover everything, so feel free to add a response to that discussion thread if you think there's something helpful that new members should know.
5) This is more a reminder than an update -- if you have a YouTube channel that you'd like to promote, you can do so in Promotion Commotion
OK that's it for now -- thanks everyone!
