While we're thinking of things to change, how about a date format that's equally acceptable to Europeans, Americans and people in other parts of the world? Things like "06-05-2010" mean different things in different countries. The ISO standard for dates is to put the largest unit first: "2010-06-05" is something that most people can recognise as 5th June no matter where they live. Or use words: "Jun-05-2010" or similar. Or have an option in user preferences for people to choose their preferred format.
OK, it's not the most urgent request, but it would be nice ;-)

Australian BCers always get confused when reading the date
I would agree too.
The year causes no confusion because it has 4 digits. It's only the day and month that cause the confusion.
Let us look at today's date;
* In the USA, 06-11-2010 means Jun-11-2010.
* In Australia, 06-11-2010 means 06-Nov-2010.
Newer BCers registering from Australia tell me that they always get confused when reading the date.

Just use the standardized computer format: [12 JUN 2010] .

Need visible breadcrumbs to lead back to the thread's parent forum. Right now I have to go all the way back to the root of the whole site to change threads.

Same thing with naming conventions, use the worldwide computer standard: Roben van SANT or van SANT Roben. Surnames/last names must uniformly be in upper case. No one will be confused thereafter.
Before, people would probably ask (non baddy ppl or baddy fans): Is it Taufik Hidayat or Hidayat Taufik?
...David Lee or Lee Daivd? Using David LEE or DAVID Lee makes it clear cut which is the Last name /Surname. Once everyone is introduced and educated about proper naming conventions, there will be no confusion.
Just my 2 pence.

Further to the topic on naming conventions..
Thats especially true with chinese names spelt & arranged with the sirname as firstname and the other names as lastname. If i write my name as "Goh K L Simon" which exactly follows my national I/C, shouldnt i be addressed as Mr Simon or Mr Goh?

The Chinese system is to have the surname first
Regarding names, the Chinese system is to have the surname comes first.
Therefore knowing that you are a Chinese from Singapore (following the Chinese system), you will be addressed as Mr. Goh.
However, a non-Chinese in Singapore usually follows the system where his/her surname comes last, for example your national Badminton player, Hendra Wijaya, will be addressed as Mr. Wijaya.

David LEE (New York Knicks forward, jersey number 42) .
Lee DeWYZE (American Idol 9 winner).
Going with the computer naming convention, it's crystal clear whether ''Lee'' is a first name or if ''LEE'' is a surname/last name.

With this new upgraded software, there is another new feature now included
The + symbol beside limsy and mikks tells you that you have selected them to be in your 'Contact List'.
There is now a 'Friend List', in addition (and separately indicated) to the 'Contact List' mentioned above.
