The individual post stats are there - for views and replies - or am I missing something ?

For what concerns my computer and me (Windows 8, Firefox) everything's well. I use the LL address.
No issues, good performance. I appreciate that there is also at the page bottom, a clickable line to get back, not only at the top as previously.
Thanks for all the maintenance efforts.
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

I know I'm going to be the only one to ask, but maybe a chat box?

Assuming you use a pc, try "Home" key (top of page), "End" key (bottom of page), and "Page Up" / "Page Down" (scroll a page up or down).

If you have a wheel mouse, a flick or two on the wheel in an upwards direction should also do the trick.

Regardless of whether I'm logged in or not, above the forum index on the left is the Login/Register boxes and buttons. On the right is the Forum Search boxes and buttons. But right between the two in the middle at the top of the forum index is............nothing. Just a lot of empty space. Would be nice to see some additional graphics, wording, or something else there.
Modeling isn't just about how good the gluing or painting, etc. looks. It's also about how creative and imaginative you can be with a subject.

Screenshot?

If you want more space onscreen, try clicking the up arrow at far top right of the page to shrink the header.

There's a lot of empty space as indicated by the red boxes in these two pics. Like I said, it's boring and I think some good graphics, pics, or wording could go there to fill up all the dead space.

I see the same (Windows, Firefox) - maybe these are (unused) advertising spaces in the layout? I don't mind the empty space, gives an uncluttered look.  ;)

It disappears as soon as I scroll down to read the messages anyway.

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

The Reply page doesn't show any icons for adding markup (bold/italics/URL/image etc). Given the discussion on smileys earlier this might be just me though, I'm on a crappy internet connection at the moment.

I second that.  <_<
