Additional permissions: Un-click a button. Control how many stats show on the statistics page, set permissions per subforum.

Buttons in First Post Only: This allows you to only make the first post thankable. If you forum is based around news, releases or anything similar this will allow your users to easily see the quality of the thread in question.

Button Click Anonymity: This feature will be extremely helpful to forums who like the idea of a "dislike" button, but don't like the drama it brings. Now you can set certain buttons to be anonymous - no one will see who clicked.

Auto Collapse Posts: Collapses a post so it doesnt show up by using a formulae for button clicks of your choosing.
