Rather than open a new thread, which seems pointless..
Firstly, these new forums are um, werid, in any event..
Sometimes when you (i'm) not logged in, you get a nice 'you must be logged in to use this search thingy' error message when trying to search.
Secondly, you get an extremely lame 'You cannot make another search at this time. Please try again in a few minutes.' error message when doing multiple searches/browses.
and finally, the whole, RE: concept in the 'active threads' listing has vanished so its awkward to tell if someone has been replied to or not...
