Green text for 'Online', on your profile page if you're online, that becomes a plug icon top-left of your image on the forums.

At the bottom of the forums page is a notice to read CoC but it doesn't go away if you've read it (probably should do that and link it to if the CoC medal is been activated or not).

Not sure what else has been updated, the 'release notes' state nothing for 3 months.

A user who is blocking you has an orange icon like a person holding a padlock where the 'online' icon or Moderator Crown icon would otherwise be.

You can see mention-count and the approximate time when a person made their first post (but if it's over a year it's rounded down to the year amount since the post, which a very thick approximation margin).

Efficiency percentage [ (topic-count * 100) / post-count ] has been deleted as a leaderboard metric.

There is an 'Accept' button at the bottom of the Rule and CoC that then deactivates the notice at the bottom of the Forums page to read them.

Indication on debates that you cannot vote on via icon on the outside.

A page to handle incoming and outgoing Friends Requests now exists (but you still have to visit their profile to accept, reject or conversely to withdraw it).

There is now a way to split your notifications up by the type they are in 'Activities'.

Sides in a debate finally state what they are, not just relying on colour. This is a massive improvement for any blind user on the website who would have had no way to know for sure which side was which via a text-to-speech reading software, of course it also helps the colour-blind to not have to strain their eyes. In fact It seems fonts in general have become easier to read, perhaps a slight boldening to all text has occured or slight font-size increase.

Instigator and Contender also don't alter when Pro and Con do, this is very correct except that Con is meant to mean 'Contending side' so Prop vs Opp would be a better dynamic but this suits the userbase's current linguistics in debate, perfectly well.

It's been there for a while.

No, it indicates that the voting period is gonna end in less than 3 days. And it's also been there all this time.

Same, it's always been there.

And that has been there too...

There is also a notice for debates where both participants have high ratings.

Close enough, there are 3 different indicators now.

1) Debate has a voting period that will end in the next 3 days.

2) Debate has a participant that is banned ( for all debate stages )

3) Debate with participants that have high ratings, I believe currently it's set to be > 1600 or > 1650, can't recall.
