    F1 Fanatic has had a software update today. Much of the changes are performance/admin based so you won’t notice them but there are a few fixes and improvements you may see.

    The biggest change you’ll notice is the tidying of the upper menu where you can manage your profile and check up on notifications. This is now right-aligned, looks a bit slicker and shows your avatar. The ‘visit random stuff’ menu has gone but hardly anyone was clicking on it anyway.

    As a result some of the menu options have changed slightly. The FAQ explaining where you can find things like changing your display name, avatar and password has been updated here:

    You also now have the ability to choose who can view different parts of your profile. As there isn’t any scope for putting sensitive information in your profile this hasn’t been needed previously, but that may change in future – obviously it’s something sites like Facebook have had problems with. The options are: publicly viewable/logged-in users only/friends only.

    There are a few improvements and fixes for how @ messages work – in particular, they weren’t working if you put a full stop at the end of them, that has now been corrected.

    I’ve had a good rummage around on the test site and not noted any new problems but as ever if you spot something which doesn’t seem right please let me know.

    On the top left there’s icons for SEO, posts awaiting moderation etc. Are they for all members or have I/we been made moderators by mistake?

    Hi @keithcollantine. I just noticed the top bar being changed. Is it intentional that on the left side of it we have some wordpress administrator tools (notification of comments in moderation, new post button and SEO toos?) – they show up for me when visiting the forum while being logged on (http://t.co/xEVI2yTe).

    On the main site these are not visible.

    This came as a pleasant surprise. Here I was looking at the “Your Questions” article when I noticed the upper menu greeting me like a Cowboy. “Howdy ScuderiaVincero” it said. Made my day it did! :)

    @keithcollantine I’ve just contacted you about that too.

    One question, though. When I get a notification, does the colour or something of the icon next to “Welcome, Fer no.65″ changes or something? because if it only changes to “1”, with the same colour, I’ll never notice it.

    I liked the previous one, that said “No notifications”, and if you got one, it was a bright green icon with a “1”.

    @fer-no65 – I’m pretty sure it changes colour. It did for me. The notification sign is green when there are no new notifications, and light blue when there are.

    @prisoner-monkeys Great! That’s good then. Thanks for “@” me, so I could see it :P.

    It didn’t actually occur to me that tagging you in the post would cause your notification sign to change.

    Since this update, the frame on the top right that gives notifications e.g. “Predict the top five and win prizes” doesn’t disappear when I hit the close button.

    I tried it in both Firefox 8 and Chrome 21.
