No Wiki page yet (I haven't forgotten), but here is a quick summary of 
points raised/features requested so far by forum members:

* Persistent logins
* Remember read/unread posts across multiple PCs/logins (per user, not 
per machine)
* The remember me, keep cookie for 1 year option looks broken (relates 
to the above)
* View first unread post within thread feature
* Ability for users to change registered email address.

* Thank User button/feature
* Better management of subscribed threads
* Quick links feature

Most of the major issues revolve around having to constantly re-login 
every 24 hours and the lack of a view first unread post within thread 
feature. One would hope that both of these issues would be addressed as 
standard in most major forum software packages. Basically our forum 
users just want the features they have come to expect as standard on 
other forums, but appear to be lacking in our current software.
