We continue to work away in the background on the Canon Rumors forum. We’re working to fix bugs, add features and evaluating user experience.
What we have added today:

Bookmarks – You can now bookmark threads and specific posts if you wish. You’ll see a new bookmarks button at the top right, which will show what you have bookmarked. You’ll see a new small bookmark graphic at the top of each thread, as well as at the top of each post.
Covers – On your profile card, you can now set a custom cover image. Simple click your username at the top right and then click your username again. You’ll see a “cover” option. You can upload whatever you’d like to appear there.
Questions & Answers – We have set up a Questions & Answers form. You can post your question there and then vote for the best answers. We don’t know how this will go, but it may prove to be valuable. You case the question and answer forum...

It's just a simple customization of your profile. Some popular posters here are followed directly by people.
None the wiser.
Does the cover image appear in place of the 'M' next to my posts, if not where? Which part of my profile is it customising? How is it related to people who follow me?
Not everyone understands these terms.

Look at my profile to see a cover image.

The "m" is your avatar, you can customize that as well when clicking your profile name.

This is merely a cosmetic thing .

Mike, I think it would be similar to a "cover photo" on your facebook (if you have one or even know what that means).

Good work Craig. Is this a CRR3?

I followed the instructions in the post, but I can't find a "cover image" option in my profile settings anywhere.

Almost anything but the simple 2 links that were available in the previous forum (about updates on our posts and posts in general). True there are manual ways plus alerts but still these were the most easy ways to access the forum updates.

In addition the Alerts have interfered with Google Ads 2 times. They opened BELOW the google ad and I could not read them!

How you relate to the issue, is the issue.

The best new feature this site has is the personalised data management options - but is that only for Europeans?

What is "personalised data management"?

Good question. Not one that I'm sure I can answer except to say that I say "No" to every option presented.

This feature gives you a full list of the companies that get made aware of your activity on canonrumors- and the list is a lot lot longer than "facebook and google." Many of the names I've never heard of. But they're all there.

It would be good to see that feature made available to everyone, globally.
