Seeing a bunch of little changes the last few days.The blue "Privacy" nag is back,but goes away once logged on.
Once in a forum the original date of first post is gone and replaced by whoever and when the last reply was.
A few other things too,not a big deal but,changes.
Just wondering if this was intended or a rouge update that snuck in?

Only change made was we are required to update the Privacy thing to 2.0 as required by the ad companies (Google and others) as after August 15th if it was not updated then ads would stop working. You should only see that if you are not logged in and it should not show up again if you have cookies turned on.

More details here.


As far as the other changes go, I didn't change anything, but did apply a security update.

I occasionally see page-wide ads amongst the threads in the What's New forum. After a reload, they seem to go away.

I am seeing this as well. There was an update to our ad manager software today which I applied. Looks like there is a bug in it, or they changed something. I will look into it more when I get a chance.

In addition to the page-wide ads, I'm also seeing a few ads that are obscuring content.

The lack of the original post date is becoming really annoying.
And now,you were able to mark a thread as "read",that has disappeared .
edit
Okay never mind the mark as read,if I close my bookmarks sidebar it reappears,but I never close the sidebar so it was visible,otherwise,for awhile.
