I think the favorites could really help the casual user as well, since it would help them more easily find their original post. It's a great feature that's just underused.

@ Bud, For that you can use the "Topics that I have participated in" link on the right hand side.

@Smash: It's also in the Quick Links drop-down now as well, so you can get to it from anywhere.

Yeah Smash, that's what I did at first, I just like it better because I can add and remove items so it tends to keep it much smaller and quicker to get to the ones I am working on.

Done, favorites is now on the menu, statistics is removed since it's not really important.

I just noticed the header on the views page is blue and clicking on one will sort the posts.
Is this a new feature or did I just not notice it before?

It's not a new feature. It only sorts what is on the current page, not the entire view... so it's not entirely useful really.

Hmm. Odd. Until I just reloaded the page your last post said it was by geekadmin with a penguin avatar who registered on April 1th.

Ok, that makes since.
I'm not sure but I think the views header used to be black not blue. The color change was made me think it might be new.
It sounds like the header sort is another in a long line of half baked bbPress features. Like the blue topic links. Every time there is a new post every page link gets turned blue when the new post is just on the last page only.

Hey thanks Geek, that helped me out quite a bit, I hope it was relatively simple on your part!! How do you keep your cats, dogs, pigs and ferrets off you while you type (at home at least)? And why hasn't ICHC taken any of my submissions, I guess I don caption well....:-(
