    "Style tweak: More visible icon theme for infractions - maybe rip off old infraction yellow/red card icons?"

    I changed the add infraction hover to red, when changing colours in bulk. But as I'm not yet sure what these infraction flags are in the first place, I'll need to get do some research before pondering their icons/colours more deeply.

    Hrmm, Go Advanced doesn't seem to work when editing a post. It just hangs forever. Can't edit title or add attachments after somethings been posted anymore.

    edit post -> quick reply is fixed. apparently 4.1.0 -> 4.1.1 they added a "PATH" variable that gets set in the headinclude template. vb_quick_edit.js was barfing on the undefined PATH variable, which it didn't use in 4.1.0.
