    The changes make sense so far. However, isn't the correct spelling "Mandalorian"?

    You are correct.

    In addition, we have merged the Rocket Pack forum with Blasters and Shin Tools as these were both small forums that didn't receive much activity. We will most likely continue to compact the Boba forums as the wiki comes onlline and as we improve TDH's search functions.

    We also have added quicklinks to our most popular forums at the top of the page. There are a few formatting issues that need to be worked out, but we hope this will help you naviagte the site with greater ease and speed.

    As you can see, we have added a new search function at the top of the page. It's not finished yet so bear with us. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let us know.

    I agree. The New Post button is the most useful button here. I prefer a quick list of posts that have been updated since my last visit in one place, rather than having to look in each sub-topic individually.

    maybe take out the LOG OUT and replace it with the VIEW NEW POSTS. Why would anyone want to log out anyways?

    Yeah, id have to agree. Some of us are on here so much that we need the new post link. Starts reading, and a few hours later we forget what thread we read (for us old folk) and then you have to start clicking finding what you read and what you didnt.

    It would be really, really, really nice if we had it back. Please, with sugar on top. Or splenda on top if your a health nut.

    It is back and the search bar has been cleaned up a bit. We would really like to see our members using the search function more and more to find answers to their questions instead of simly browsing and hoping to stumble upon an answer.

    I'm liking the new additions as well.

    One concern tho, its either my browser or the forum scripting itself..but the new search bar doesn't seem to scale well with my screen resolution. Specifically the 'adv search' text extends outside the black/red border.
