Can you please activate the “Show new posts"-button and make sure its placed in the top of the forum? I think 95% of us would like to use that button all the time to get a fast overview over new posts since our last visit.
And also I would really like to be able to see what Bugs have already been reported in, so that;
1) You dont need to spend time cleaning up duplicate bug-reports
2) We dont need to spend time reporting bugs which have already been reported
I would, however, prefer to have the buttons on the right side, as every other forum in the world also got in there - and, you have placed the “Fast reply”, “Post reply”, etc buttons on the right side on the bottom, so to keep things a bit “standardized” (I love standardization!) it should have been aligned=right
