WOW I'm still sifting through the new little improvements to the board. Thanks for posting that though...over half the stuff on there I hadn't seen yet:)
Who Voted feature through the admin Control Panel!! Woohoo!!
No longer do I have to ask Chris to access MySQL to know who voted in a poll... It would've helped with the Delphi cheating case...
...and it'll make the final voting results check on the second round faster !!
Great stuff.. let's keep it coming.
Good changes ... altough there is one wrong change ...
purple buttons in the PM boxes are 'not done'
