I like the new version, however it doesn't allow me to see clickable links on my phone. I have a Palm Pre with Sprint. I plan on getting the HTC EVO, but that won't be for a few months. Not sure if it's different or not.

One Question - Is there still going to be Ad Banners available? I don't see any right now.

I'm asking some of the same questions Jim! I payed the vendors fee and don't see anyway to put my banner ads back up.

I was in Eastport Maine with no Internet of any kind. What changes were made? Everything looks the same to me.

The skin on the site is the same, but there were quite a few enhancements:

New Chat Engine:
Site now has a better chat engine on it to replace the Chat Box.

Revamped Search:
The new release features a completely revamped search engine, making it easier to find content within the site. It's now easier to search individual applications, and each application has custom filters available to find precisely the material you're looking for. Finally, there's a brand new contextual search box in the global header. Specify which type of content to find, and search inside individual topics or forums easily.

Centralized Notifications:
The new release introduces a brand new centralized notifications system. Notifications have been available in the past for several events (topic subscriptions, etc.), but they used disparate generation systems. The new notifications system provides consistent, central management of notifications, as well as several new events that can send notifications (such as 'someone quoted my post'). Notification options are now managed in a single interface in the UserCP.

Status Updates:
Status updates have had several big improvements. Most notably, members can now comment directly on each others' statuses. We've also added a new Community Statuses page, allowing all member statuses to be viewed and commented on at once. Member profiles have been updated with a new tab to show a history of that user's status updates, as well as an overview of comments they've given on other status updates. Finally, Facebook and Twitter status integration means you can bring your external statuses into the site, and vice-versa.

Content Sharing Tools:
The new version features brand new content sharing tools, letting you share community content across the internet. We include support for all the major social networking and new aggregation services, and with Facebook and Twitter you don't even need to leave the site. We've also included a new sidebar block which shows the most shared content in your community.

Topic Preview:
Click the new topic preview icon in the topic listing or search results views, and see the first and latest posts without leaving the page.

Profile Customization:
Members can now choose an image to be their profile background. You can even automatically have your Twitter background imported to use instead!

New iPhone/iPad Application:
Members can now access the site from their phone...free of charge!

Aaron you are the man for providing such an awesome site. I appreciate it as I am sure many others do as well.

p.s. When I click on a banner ad I get an error still.

I get a similar message when attempting to access the gallery. Although I don't know if I ever was able to access it before- never tried.
