One thing I don't like, the new ad above the content.
I wouldn't mind it at the footer, but it is incredibly intrusive, even if does get hits.

Offbeat = not liable.
They changed it for several reasons. Mainly that "Not liable" was being used incorrectly.

Aha! When you reply to a comment, everyone upstream in the nested comments gets a notification

I hadn't yet read this, and I thought that Robot was just getting bored and sending out extra emails.

Carriage returns are no longer stripped from personal messages
What exactly does that mean?

Oh, and another question: If a comment is made to a comment thread that has branched out, does the comment get sent to the entire tree, or just those in that line? For example, if this comment was a reply to Member A, and Member B replied to Member A's message as well, would I still be sent a notification of Member B's comment?

No, that's one of the changes. A reply to a comment sends the email to anyone on that same comment line. Kiteman, tell me if you get this.

If you PMed somebody, and pressed "enter" to start a new line or two... ...like this, the "enter" commands disappeared. You had to format line breaks like this:
(I hope that all works, because the "preview" function only says "undefined")

I've had some issues adding pictures to comments... Is it me or the new site changes? Example, I just selected "add images" and the attach images bar expanded nicely, but none of the pics in my library are displayed. strange.

Haaaa ha ha (evil laugh) --- KNEX 'eh? Please build something out of knex for me and photo it. I need the instructables robot in knex. As detailed as possible, take some pics, then go back to making your guns. No rush, but it would be cool. -Thanks GK (SEE. I did not critizize your silly and childish infatuation with knex guns. OOps, I guess I just did. uh, sorry. Har Har Har.)
