proper/improper or appropriate/inappropriate?

Is anyone else missing the options button that used to be at the top of each topic that allows you to choose how posts are displayed? I had it set to always show the OP at the top of each page and now it doesn't. Anyone else have this issue?

Nothing else so far, but I'm glad people are still having fun! (Or being annoyed into it, whatever works! ;) )

It does look as though I'm missing said button, but my option didn't change - I still have the riddle at the top of each page.
