This site is much harder to use since the recent redesign. One, you took away the date stamps -- making it a lot harder to find new content. Two, you have this super-annoying Real Player pop-up that activates everytime you serve up a forum page. Is this a requirement of UBB? This is awful, please fix this if possible.

Hmmm. I never saw this RealPlayer pop-up but my firewall blocks all pop-ups and ads anyway. But I would recommend we not use any sounds or anything like that for the forums or force people to change their defaults. I know some people live and die by their own particular choice of media player and are not too thrilled with changing their defaults just to browse one site.
As far as the date-stamp issue being mentioned, what date stamps are missing?
The voice comes up if you have a private message waiting for you.
If you do not want this Real Player thing to popup, Change your real player setting not to play WAV files. (There's an embeded wav file notification) that comes if you have a new provate message waiting for you.
And as far as the time stamp... You need to update your profile to see those... (There's a time format selector which you need to select something from) and then update your profile.
