Thanks, DrakonianDanceR.
I like to find hacks that I think would be useful here. There are a lot of available hacks that I don't think we'd have much use for, but others out there are pretty good.
I've also been catching errors with a couple of the hacks that were made, so I was able to help the the writer get them fixed... which is a good thing, of course. '<img'>

I think that's good.  It's only polite, and good manners to help those that help you.  So you've used someone else's hack they made, and in return helped them fix a couple of little bugs in them.
DC2. etc...

*nods* The bug in the referral hack was a bit serious, though. It would wipe the referrer field clean if you went and saved your profile after already having set in your referrer. Then when you add the referrer back in again later, it gives that referring user an extra credit, bumping their 'members referred' stat up once again.
Oh well...
It's fixed now, at least. '<img'>

A recent hack that was added in now sets the proper board name into the browser title bar rather than having just iB::<whatever> there for most of the board's views. It's just a matter of aesthetic, but still a considerable improvement in my opinion. It especially helps in your taskbar if you're browsing more than one bulletin board at a time. '<img'>

I had noticed this, myself.  I think it's better now, as when I look at the windows on my taskbar, I can cleary see this is a Furtopia window.  Before, I had to keep checking what the "iB" windows were - but that's probably just my stupidity showing through.  Anyway, good work Benjamin.  Thanks.

True, yeah. It helps me seeing as I run a few boards and visit several other Ikonboards as well. I applied this hack to all three of my boards, so I can't confuse them in the taskbar anymore, at least. '<img'>

Benjamin CPRs this old topic... '<img'>

At a request of a user here, I've added in a feature where any user can input their species into their profile information. Once it's in, it can be viewed via the user profiles as well as seen in the user information in each post, beneath each posters' name.
I've also modified the topic view a slight bit, so you may want to do a 'refresh' of your browser in order to reload the updated version of the CSS for this board. It's nothing major, but it makes things look a little more pretty. '<img'>

Just a little side note.  Anyone notice anything a little diffrent on the main page?  '<img'>   Many thanks to Benjamin who's HTML experiences saved the day aginst a mis-behaved iframe and for a great design.  

Let us know what you think about all the upcomming changes!  Plus more on the way.  '<img'>

For those who watch, the main page pic changes every 60 seconds. '<img'>

Excellent. '<img'>
Am glad to see that the site's new look is coming along now.
Two liger thumbs up for the new design, even if most of the graphics were my own work. '<img'>
