There's one major change that you'll notice - it's the ability to edit your own posts now. You will find an 'edit' link under each question or answer which will allow you to make corrections. You can fix typos or edit your answers so that they are more complete and helpful. Please use comments under each answer to point out weaknesses or discuss the answer. Remember this is a Q&A site and answers are more important than comments on the answers.

Since the beginning, we have been using a subset of the Markdown syntax on Clever Dodo. As from today, we support the full markdown syntax which is a good thing because you can now include images in your posts. The syntax for images is as follows:

![title of your image](link to your image)

Unfortunately this move means we have stopped auto-linking URLs. So you will have to use the markdown syntax for hyperlinks as follows:

[anchor text](link to website)

You can also include youtube videos in your posts now by inserting the link to the video and it will be automatically be embedded here.

@Iron_Man : Don't worry, we haven't evicted you, lol. The CSS as well as the Top Contributors' sprite has changed, so you need to clear your browser's cache to see the changes.
