No, regular users can't see the admin section at all
One possible annoyance (may be my settings or lack of knowledge) but your reply to my topic just triggered an email to me of the entire topic!
Any way of switching that off?
Yes, it's because you created the thread - you get auto subscribed - i think you just click the un/subscribe button to turn it off
I've tweaked the look of the BETA to a more 'Material' design - any better?
Ignore me... ignore me...
