The new Twitter module on the side of the forum index is a bit of an eyesore, but oh well.

"Ignore" makes the ignored party completely invisible. The only visible evidence of them on the forum is their post likes, their main page presence and their overall account membership. :search: The posts and quotes of ignored parties are completely out of site from the person ignoring them.
I like how ignored posts are now completely invisible. On the old forum there used to always be the empty shell of an ignored person's post compacted down with the words this message is hidden because so and so is on your ignore list. This makes it look so much better without the needless clutter. :big_grin:

Whenever the forum home page is first loaded it will display the song currently playing at that exact moment (just like the MC home page). When the next song begins playing, in order for that info to be displayed that part of the page would need to automatically refresh. This song refresh is currently disabled for a variety of reasons. Most people aren't on the forum home for an extended period of time so this is an ok compromise.

As has always been the case though, the song listings here are continually updated in real time as long as you are on the radio page.

Ah, that makes sense. It's great to see Frogboy4's wonderful album art on a much larger scale.

There are a couple of guidelines I'd like to see added and enforced.

It would be great to follow the TP tradition of using our real first names - at least in out in signatures.

It would also help if members wold list real information (at least state, region or country, but not necessarily city) concerning their location.

These guidelines would clear up confusion concerning media release dates and would also facilitate name-based, thoughtful discussions while still maintaining a level of privacy.
