  • Thread tagging
  • Search cloud / tag cloud
  • Thread prefixes
  • Reciprocal friendships between users
  • Public visitor messaging on profile pages with 'conversation' feature
  • User picture galleries with user comment facility
  • User-created social groups with invite only and moderated membership options
  • Extended member profile pages
  • Customizable member profile pages with admin-controlled styling abilities
  • Inline editing of custom user profile fields
  • Lightbox viewer for attached images
  • Viewable and comparable history maintained for post edits
  • Extended re-authentication for inline moderation actions
  • Notices system for navigation bar
  • New human-verification tools including reCAPTCHA, and question/answer

but maybe the board could use a diff skin.....?!?!?!
We used to offer selectable skins; however this theme seems to be the old firm favourite! We'll be sticking with this for the near future.

Just out of interest, what colour skin would you like to see dnbforum in?
