Re: Changes to forums and comments

I found this on another BDC forum, I hope it helps.
Ignore this user -- This is a popular feature that we have to delay implementing for a couple of weeks. However, we have saved everybody's "enemies list", and when we re-introduce this, we will restore your personal list of the users you have already ignored.
Images -- Some of you like adding photos to your posts; that will be on hiatus for a little while.
Polls -- Conducting a poll is popular in our Sports forums, but we haven't built our own polling tool yet to be able to continue this right away. It's coming.
Search -- We want to give you the ability to search for anything in our forums; it's a bit complicated to implement, so we're delaying this feature for a few months.
Subscribe -- Some of you have subscribed to particular discussions or forums in order to get notified when somebody has added a post. That, too, will be added soon.
Private forums -- You've asked for these, and we're planning to deliver.
Discussion lists -- On the front page of many of our sections, such as Red Sox and Lifestyle, we have widgets that pull in the latest discussions from a particular forum. We're still building those, so in their place you'll see links directly to the relevant forums.
Profile Pages Public/private -- You can set your Profile Page to be public (viewable by everybody) or private (viewable by only you). Eventually we'll have a third option: Viewable by only your Friends.
Private messages -- This is another feature you have requested that we've built for you. From now on, when somebody leaves a message for you on your Profile Page, it is private - only you can see it, even if you have your Profile Page set to public.
Friends -- Don't worry, we haven't forgotten your friends. They're saved, but won't be displayed on your Profile Page until later.
Personal blogs -- We've also saved your blog posts. Although you won't be able to view them right away, they will return so you can once again blog to your heart's content.
Personal photo galleries -- Very few of you used this feature, so we probably won't add it back.
Profiles -- We can't let you change your avatar right now, but you'll soon be able to.
Forum signatures -- Your current forum signatures will stay, but the ability to change them or add new signatures is on its way.
