Well, since Scott's not really 'away' any more, I decided to give his mod powers back, and restore him as a full-time staff member. 

Welcome back :) !

Instead of a plain text header, the pages of the Award Gallery now have their own fancy banner!

Thanks to @"ObsessedwithBirds" for making this :D .

Even though it's been three months since we moved away from ZetaBoards, I'm still in the habit of using the old code for [img] and [thumbnail] tags with width and height :P . That is, I sometimes find myself typing the following: 

Code:
[img=220,125]https://i.imgur.com/wL8hdAc.png[/img]

This was correct on ZetaBoards, but on MyBB, the correct code is: 

Code:
[img=220x125]https://i.imgur.com/wL8hdAc.png[/img]

Now, I've set it up so that the variant with the comma works again, for both [img] and [thumbnail] tags :) .

I've modified the Instagram tag so that it no longer requires the 'www.' in the URL. 

(You don't need to remove it now, but it'll work with or without :) )

Following overwhelming support for this idea, "Happy Birthdays" has been re-named to "Birthdays and Celebrations". 

From now on, threads about the usual celebrations (Christmas, Easter, Hallowe'en, Thanksgiving, and so on) go in here instead of General Chat.

I've made an update to the 'Hot Topic' criteria. 

It used to be that any topic with over 20 replies, or over 150 views, was considered 'Hot'. There was no particular reason for this: it was just the way it was set up by default in MyBB. However, @"BrynStevens" alerted me to the fact that there were threads with 5 replies that were considered 'hot', and that confused him a bit. 

Now, I've set it so that it only takes replies into account, i.e. a 'Hot' thread is one with over 20 replies. (Technically, a thread with over 999,999,999 views will also be considered 'Hot', but it's not like that will happen!)

I've added an "Original Join Date" custom profile field, where people can enter their original join date from the old TCH if they wish. I still intend to put these join dates back in the actual 'Join Date' field, but until then, this is a temporary workaround. 

Thanks to @"BrynStevens" for the suggestion :) !
