ok, it seems that being away from here for a month (again) did me no good and it seems i missed out on alot. i looked around and saw what changed and i researched through the Site Issues / Questions thread and found out what has happened. however, i dont know what the Userbar feature is/does/or how it works. will the admins and/or moderators kindly explain that to me? ( i searched through the threads here and found nothing on the Userbar feature, unless i missed it or just blind). any info would be much appreciated
