Yes...experimenting with new ad placements. Supporters and Premium members don't have ads.

Unregistered have the most to look at. Registered users have some to look at.

It's an evil I have to have...we've got a big server bill to pay each month.

If I could make a suggestion, putting the PM limit up from 5 to at least 50 would please a lot of people. It has a significant effect on the site's functionality, and the premium aspects are better seen as frills. Members are meant to support for the warm glow they get. Doing it as part of the upgrade would be neat.

It can't be done yet, we all still get tombstones threads when we hit 'my topics'

I can barely see our icons, some are missing and when you click on 'more', you can no longer read what it says in the green.

lots more to do I'd say.

Found info on this. This is a bona-fide bug. No fix for it yet.

You can, however, go to that person's profile and then click on find all posts.

Until they get this fixed....the search for posts from specific users will not be fully working.
