I don't know if it's possible, but a suggestion for our profiles. We can put AIM, YIM, and MSN Messenger names.  Can we have a specific spot for Twitter handles as well?

I, for one, miss having a text chat (like the Corner Booth).  It was like having a live action book club.  Some of the best discussions I've ever had about books took place there, and I miss it.

That's a great suggestion!  We have now added not only Twitter handles to our profiles, but also ones for Facebook, MySpace, Google+, and LinkedIn.

To add them to your profile, go to the Profile menu at the top of the forum, click on Forum Profile, enter your Twitter and/or other usernames in the respective boxes, then click the Change profile button at the bottom of the page.  Once added, there will be small icons under your username on your profile page and next to all your forum posts for other members to link directly to your Twitter page, etc.

This is another excellent suggestion. :)  A live text chat feature has been added.  Go to the top of the forum and click on Chat, to the right of Home.

Thank you for the great suggestions so far. :)  Please keep them coming and help us build an awesome new community together!

Thanks I have added my Facebook :), and Twitter. I have to confess that I have a Twitter account, just because almost everybody has one, but I am never using since I have like no idea how it works or how to follow any conversation at all.  :(

I know this is sounds silly, I liked having those 'post-maker' things that used to change whenever you hit a certain number of post. It wasn't that I wanted as many posts as poss, I just liked seeing what they changed to (and back then we had loads to talk about anyway...)

Do you mean how the member titles (displayed under our usernames next to our posts) changed whenever we hit a certain number of posts, blue_dreamer?  If so, we had discussed this when we were first planning this new website and decided not to have a post count based system like that, in order not to encourage spam.

There is, however, something called "Personal Text" that the members are free to set for themselves which allows for some expression of creativity, for anyone who would like that displayed under their avatars.  To set it, go up to the Profile menu, then Modify Profile, then Forum Profile, and then you can put in something for Personal Text and click on Change profile in the bottom right-hand corner to save it.
