A default avatar that is a little less "ugly" might be nice ... a football, perhaps?

On the left hand side, click User Control Panel, then select Profile, then Edit Avatar. Warning: they are limited to 90 pixels by 90 pixels. I put mine in a paint program then resized it to 90 by 90, then saved it on my computer, then uploaded it to my profile.

Checking to see if the YouTube embed function works:

Inigo: I must know...
Man in Black: Get used to disappointment.
Inigo: 'Kay.

You have to use the embed code from the share link on YouTube, not the URL to the video itself.

Oh, and another cool feature: not only does the board have a mobile theme if you go to it from a browser on your smartphone or tablet, but there are also multiple phpBB apps that will render the board in a mobile-friendly way, making it easy to read and post. I'm using one to post this, called Forum Pocket.
I have the coolest signature of all time. Woohoo!!

Ok... there is a new feature... that was an old feature...

We now have freakin' Irish Strike-thrus...

Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell, author of "Lone Survivor," described Navy Seal Medal of Honor recipient LT Michael Murphy as "An iron-souled warrior of colossal and almost unbelievable courage in the face of the enemy."
