    I noticed the forum is showing the time an hour later then it is due to the change from summer time to winter time, user settings are on gmt +1 and DST on, shouldn't it change automatically?
    Just to be clear, this post will show up for me as posted on 9:55 pm while it is now 8:55 on gmt + 1

        Well Neil that would be because you are in a time zone one hour behind me right?
        It was 7:54 pm english time when i posted that.

        Anyway i changed my user settings to GMT now to fix it for now.

                  Okay, in that case, here is few more for you:
                  1. The Snooker Lounge subforum has a weird <font size="3"... text displayed in the title that clearly shouldn't be there.
                  2. There is a bunch of characters not correctly displayed, which is particularly noticeable when reading older posts. For instance, the ` sign that some posters use is replaced by some gibberish. Might be the same problem as the currency symbols actually.
                  3. Some smileys in older posts are no longer displayed, and some of the ones currently offered in the text editor are missing pictures. Also, while the current set of smileys is an improvement on the previous ones, the ones before that looked much better to me.
                  4. Country flags are gone and the profile pictures no longer fit correctly in their frames. See my Starry Night as a perfect example.
                  5. If you put your mouse over a topic you have posted in, it will tell you how many posts you have and the date and time of your last post. Some work correctly, but some just have the current time displayed instead of the actual time of your last post.
                  6. If you try to open any topic in the Announcements/News subforum, it just leads back to that subforum.
                  I'm sure there are other little bugs I could find, but I think the biggest problem this forum currently has is the huge number of subforums that are either out of date or completely pointless. Might be worth considering just archiving the whole thing and building a more sensible structure of subforums from scratch. That's just my opinion though.

                    All noted and will ask
                    my first thoughts are:
                    #2 I think it will be the same as Currency-symbol; whole character set or sets not being accepted.
                    #4 I miss the flags
                    #4 Avatar - not noticed this, I think it will be that the new version allows for larger (pixel by pixel) images and our older smaller images are not fitting as well, I see mine has a small edge


                    EDIT
                    #1 - can you capture a screenshot as I cant see what you describe? thanks

                          Don't think i have that font thing, maybe browser specific.
                          Checked, i have it in Firefox too

                            Not sure, but it definitely happens in Chrome and Firefox. I've only noticed this glitch in The Snooker Lounge subforum, but there are many sections of the forum I never visit at all, so I'm not sure if any others have this as well.
