* Part of the LTS offer is the 'career officer' title and 'custom username colour'. Before LTS users had a blue name (as an advertsied part of buying the LTS) compared to normal users white names, however, now everyones names are blue, this is actually breaking part of what was offered in the LTS package.
Biggest problem I have is that it's now annoying to track whos post is whos in a large thread with many contributors.
In a well designed forum, a mere glance to the left should be enough to know who's post it is if you've been talking to them already. But as it is, there are no custom avatars, and only 13 pre-existing ones to choose from, which on a forum with 100s of regular users will result in plenty of duplication. To top it off, user's names are tiny, and placed under the avatar where a member title would normally appear.
Yeah, I know it's only an extra second of reading, but it's just an absolutely needless frustration resulting from a poor design choice that can be easily changed. A forum shouldn't be annoying to read because of how it's designed. It should be annoying cos everyone's being a reactionary troll

Reason: Clarity, missing verb & overlong sentence
