Blizzard have made some major upgrades to their Battle.net forums
).. Here is the Change List:
-New layout for the Warcraft III forums
! - If you have bookmarked any of the Warcraft III forums, you will need to delete your bookmark and create a new bookmark to the new layout. Check out the new layout. If you find the layout is too dark, please adjust your monitor’s contrast/brightness. -List of all posts by poster: Next to each poster’s name, you will see a magnifying-glass-over-a-person icon. Click on this icon and it will list all of the stored posts by that poster. To see their latest posts, you will need to flip to the last page.
-Warcraft III users: The forums now show the user’s clan and links to their clan page next to their name!
-New signature preview! - You can now see your signature and make changes to it without making test posts to the forums. Go to the options screen and make a change to your signature. You can see what it will look like and make further changes to it before it appears “live” on the forums.
-Removed post count: While this was a cool feature, we found people abused it too much in order to get higher post counts.
-Forums now have a title (top of Web browser window) which is helpful when creating a bookmark to a specific forum.
-MVPs now have a different post color
