Please let me know if there is a feature I have missed or if any of the
information is inaccurate or out of date. I have not included the features covered in their announcement.
I welcome you to BUMP. I will now and then.
*Thanks for all the input. Sorry for the delay. To keep the thread true to its purpose, I will stick to posting about features that used to be on the old site and new features that will be introduced. I will not be posting suggestions for features or bugs with features that have been reintroduced.
