New forum features added

Along with the new look of the forum, I have added quite a few new features to it as well.

1) Profile - you will notice that you now have a much better profile page where you can add photos and some more info about yourself
2) Calendar - is now much more user friendly
3) Glossary - there is a glossary of terms and abbreviations. Where they are used in a post, they are highlighted. If you move your mouse over them a small pop up box displays showing the explanation of that term. Very useful for the guys just starting out.
4) Social Networking - you can now add your facebook, MySpace and Twitter info into your profile.
5) New Ticker - Underneath your avatar at the top of each page is a news ticker where important announcements can be made.
6) Expanding post box - When you are writing a long post, you can now expand (or contract) that box so you can see your whole post without scrolling up. To do this you drag the small === at the bottom of the post box up or down
7) You can add members to be your buddy. You can then set your profile to be only visible to your buddies if you don't want your personal info available to everybody

time shows up correctly by me? anybody else have that problem?
Schalk maybe you should also quickly check your time setting in your profile. Maybe your profile is still set on SA time?

Now that I have changed my profile, thank you Schalk - my time is also correct.

New layout etc is awesome and appears to be a lot faster than the old one.

Well done Nolan.

bumping this so the new guys can get to know some of the helpful features of the site - especially the glossary when everything seems to new and overwhelming
