Everybody should now have a "report to moderator" button. See it?

Everybody should now be able to login with either their user ID or with their email address.

Embedded youtube videos should now be much larger!

(and a few other admin things, and hidden-behind-the-scenes things)

ALL of these changes come from the awesome staff at CodeRanch.

Do folks see the "report to moderator" button?

Yes, although IMO it's too close to the quote button. I've already caught myself about to hit it by mistake several times.

Here's my "art school" crit for you (I studied Industrial Design).

The button used most frequently (QUOTE) used should be to the far right - nothing on the outside boarder to hit by mistake. However, I'm not sure the REPORT button should be sandwiched between the other 2 as it increases the likelihood of it being hit by mistake. I'm not sure how much freedom you have to place things in your software but those are the design considerations to keep in mind.

Thank you for that feedback. We have added this as a task to our internal issue tracking system and we'll get to this soon. The software does allow us to decide where exactly the button goes, so we have enough freedom to move it.

Two minor points, if I may:
Navigation buttons at the bottom of each page as well as at the top might be helpful; otherwise you very often overlook the fact that there's a second page available.
And then: I've added the Richsoil Podcast twice to my podcast software on my Android phone, and each time the podcast avatar came out corrupted.

Which avatar is the podcast avatar? The boot? Me?
