    The indication of which forumns contain unread posts is not updated correctly. In the picture below, the icon for 3 of the forums signifies that there are unread posts:

    [attachment=86265:z.png]

    Yet I have read the latest posts in those forums:

    [attachment=86266:x.png]

    Combined with
    • The lack of a "Posts since your last visit" link
    • The completely unusable date/time indication
    this makes it difficult to keep track of what's really new.

    The ratio between -ise and -ize stands at 3:2 in the British National Corpus..."


    I would have said that "capitalise" came from the Latin...

    "the -ize spelling ... is often incorrectly regarded as an Americanism", presumably because they use it endemically?!
