The avatars on the forums panel on the front page being smaller does help, but there should be an option to remove them.
I'm still having an issue where Quick Reply doesn't recognize paragraph breaks anymore. So, if I need to do anything that requires paragraph breaks, even if it's not a long post, I have to click the Reply button and do it that way. It's not a huge inconvenience, but I've generally used Quick Reply for image-free posts that I can knock out in a couple of minutes and don't feel the need to format.
