    Whats changed? It made the "users online" list much easier to filter at a glance for who I wanted to talk to, also it made reading the forums a bit easier. Im sure there was a motive behind unbolding them, but what was it?

    It was an intentional change, however it has nothing to do with anything other than incorporating the supporting membership subscription into the forum software, managing primary and secondary usergroups, etc etc...

    I can enable bold usernames, however recent supporters since the subscription-handling-thing update (jan 05) will not have a bold username unless they take a specific action (go to "My TalkBass", click on 'group membership' and choose to be displayed as a "Supporting Member").
