Announcement: I am working on an upgrade feature and things are bound to scatter a bit. 
You can just login with your regular accounts and passwords (no need to reset password), social logins still work (though some of the handles have been removed).

The updates are rather subtle, and you may just not notice them unless you have been paying really good attention.

New Features/Updates
- security feature to throw out other logged in accounts when you change password
- implementing a proper search algorithm, no longer using the google cse stuff which does not really give the result in the proper format. 
- the profile avatar setting has improved. Now you can have your original picture and recrop anytime you like, plus the cropping is better than before and easier too.
- the forum parent categories now display, so you can see if a board is under web design or programming
- Previously, comments do not have a link of their own and are therefore not shareable, but that has been changed in this update.
- The tagging and mentions have not ben working for sometime, but that again has been fixed. So if I say @jenny please check out my new post on #drupal - jenny will actually receive a mention (which she can view on the user menu under your avatar or top right corner of desktop mode), and drupal is added to the hash tags.
- And oh, you can now view all the hashtags under the explore menu i.e https://africoders.com/hashtags
- And oh, the hashtag and mentions work site-wide, forums, blogs, everywhere you post and reply.
- The explore menu when you can view it allows you to jump to areas and post different entries without much clicks.
- Dont forget to check your notification settings because notifications are already collating and will soon start broadcasting for real
- And of course some minor features that are just too tiny to mention e.g. de-ajaxifying the home page (some people wont just like this), but for search engine's sake

Coming really really soon
- Notifications: web notifications you can see on the website, push notifications, and email notifications
- Messaging: yeap, you can send DM to a person
- Following / followers: that is right, you can follow people too

@dhtml pls add a point system, it will help give back to favorite users, perhaps points can translate into badges.. Meanwhile try to visit my site to sign up you deserve a social verification badge.

That is a very good suggestion, I will apply this in my work. Meanwhile, you should try update your profile, put your profile picture and your website URL. There will soon be a section here where profiles can be viewed and searched for, connections made, followers e.t.c things

@dhtml as part of your update, pls let it be clear to users if they have liked a post or a comment, such that if I click like, let the font colour for like be totally different from the default colour cos I have mistakenly Liked and Unliked twice now.

I want to appreciate all the reports trolling in, they have been most helpful in knowing the areas to direct concentration.
