I'm looking to gather any forum style issues that fans may encounter. This includes things like un-readable text on certain pages when any of the official 3 styles are used. In case users run into one of these issues and need to work around them, I've also made two default VB style available to select for now:
  • Black Red
  • Dark
The best way to report is to respond to this thread with a picture and link to the page where it happens (if applicable) and a note of the style used.

ahahah.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

No, not again, being ignored for a dozen page of messages when we list in detail all the forum problems and issues, and even provide fixes, is really not something I'm looking forward. You can still dig the old thread (you know the same one from when forum engine was migrated) if you want my feedback about all forum issues (which are basically still to this date not fixed) and forum fixes (your forum CSS needs lot of work).

We needed to upgrade the forums due to security concerns, sadly at that time I was not able to get all the support I needed to fix issues that arose nor address all specific issues (the forums at the time did not properly support a dark theme without major workarounds. This is now something they support and I am working to rebuild customization's from this base).

OK, I may revise my decision then if REALLY FOR REAL NO BULLCRAP the things we bring up to the table will really be AT LEAST discussed (like tell us yes/no/maybe), and/or simply applied/fixed.

Notifications to replies don't actually link to the messages any longer so you cannot reply to the original thread or the person who replied to you :(

vB messages no longer displays incoming messages.



I can see mine, but i can't see others.
But i could see incoming messages from foster parent when he was around.... maybe because of mod privileges?

Sorry this issue struck while I was out of the office and now I'm a bit sick so I've been a bit slow reacting. Getting one of my web contractors to investigate now.

Thats a spam filter. Just try to not edit pages several times in quick succession and you should be fine.

​​​​​​hmm.
​​​​​@Yoshiro sometimes the spam filter just unapproves your 1st clean reply if you keep correcting it in the process before posting.
No warning, just unapproved.

A quick poke doesn't show much I can change on that front but I'll keep looking.

I'll give you my personal opinion about forum's new design: I like it. It feels and looks great, but only thing I don't like - bold font. Bold text looks too bold and it's hard to read the text. This is what I mean:
1571395088105.png

Text looks so bold that you can't even see holes in letters, like look at the letter "e" or "a".
I would suggest to use different font, something lighter so bold doesn't look too much bold.
