Consider renaming 'Settings' to 'Notifications' (or something more descriptive) in the user control panel.

The "profile:" language property is shared (cp tab + top menu). So, you have also changed the menu.

Also, "Subscriptions" might not be the best choice as there is already one (see tabs_subscriptions).

I've renamed it to conrol panel, which I think is most appropriate.

So, we went from 'Settings' to 'Subscriptions' to 'Control Panel'. All great for the menu.

When you enter (the now called) Control Panel, the first tab will also be called 'Control Panel'. However, notifications are shown.

If I can have may way: rename 'Control Panel' back to 'Settings' (shorter) and introduce a new label for the fist tab called 'Notifications'.

Except for "Buddy List" (which seems to be out of place), we have:

- New Private Messages
- Subscribed Forums With New Messages
- Subscribed Topics With New Messages

So, I thought it was more about notifications than anything else. Very handy page to see who responded to threads you subscribed to.

Showing links to new PMs could be considered as notification that you got them.

Showing the online indicator for buddies could be considered as notification that they are online.
