    So a little insight into how some of this works from a planning perspective.

    Xenforo, (the software we use) is still very young. It doesn't have every bell and whistle. But those extra features, many of them which improve quality of life for members and staff, can be added in without too much fuss. The catch is, doing that makes upgrading a longer process and more likely to fail. So it is a balancing act between customization and ease of long-term maintenance.

    I don't usually add new features with each upgrade, but I feel fairly confident that I can maintain things as they are now. With my brain injury complexity stumps me easily, so being aware of at what point I get confused and staying away from that is very important.

    I'd like to see the board and community flourish. We've all invested a lot of our time and interest here. Hopefully some of the changes keep the board fresh and easy to use.

    Hope the upgrades are a win win... make the board easier and more friendly for us members, but also hope that you getting back on the bike so to speak... helps you in you recovery.

    Now the question is... are you able to toss papers with both hands yet?

    I love the unread posts-counter. It was the only thing I was missing from the old forums. Great work, rosc!

    Your brain is fine, just keep shaking that stick (as in Cool Hand Luke).
    Thanks for the upgrade. Looking good.

    Do we need to remind you that your doctor placed you on the DL? :call-police:

    Small round of updates today. Hopefully I didn't break anything.

    I will try a much bigger update tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
