I plan to add some features to the forum this weekend. (Of course I have to after I do some homework for college ). Features include: Who's online, view user profile page, locking theads at top of forum (Curtesy of Anandtech's forum), mark all PMs as read, 'delete' PMs, forgot password page, attention admin pages. New forums will be added and will have security features such that only an admin can start a thread and such.
Some upgraded site features include: admin verify user news submittions, admin verify editorials, and some other things. For the most recent additions to this list, check the site forum.
