Both issues (members names such as yours and Stevens not appearing, and the drop down overlap) have for sure been reported a long time ago.
But I can't find the posts back, and I can't recall what was said about it either.
Perhaps that was discussed by means of pm, and not discussed on the forum? (I delete all older pm's myself)
Are you sure you have successfully pushed the forum update you intended to do a while back?
For instance, we had some discussions (and a decision) about improving the selection of font colors for forum posts a long time ago, and that still hasn't been implemented...
