    Change in community-ish-ness

    It used to be I could click on a person's userid to see their details, and the forum software would tell me what forum they were creating a thread in, or what thread they were replying to or viewing. Now, that is all gone.

    Anyone know why that feature was removed?

    err... does it matter? Personally I thank whoever did it since I don't recall giving anyone permission to audit my activity on the forums.

    It was changed since the last update. Someone, be it intentionally or unintentionally removed it. If you're really curious you can just click on "Currently Active Users" at the bottom of the main forum page to see what people are doing at the given time... that's how I still manage to stalk Mario everywhere he goes.
