All your banners are belong to us
It's quite impressive that your banners take up more space than your avatar.
ooops! Yes another duplication there, 'moderator' and 'super moderator' -one should be instead of the other.
The top one determines if they show up on the public list on the homepage, We can toggle this on and off. The bottom one is their user group and will always be on.
this is always being worked on and we accept suggestions for it.
hadn't thought of this I'll see what i can do.
Another good point. I'll work on it tomorrow.
already on my list to work on tomorrow
this is a lil tricky to sort out but i think it can be done.
You should seen what it looked like when all groups had banners.
Just regarding fonts, personally I think a fair bit of the UI and other text is a touch small and maybe the body text of posts are a fraction large.
i did bump it up this morning a little bit but there's still some room. I'll mess with it tomorrow.
By the way, could we have a slightly larger limit for avatar pics? I have a nice animated .gif that I've managed to compress to 68Kb but the forum has a limit of 50Kb.
Let's make it 65kb just to trolololol?
One thing that is slightly annoying me is that both the 'home' and the bit-tech logo takes us to bit-tech.net. I would personally prefer the bit-tech logo to take us to the site and home take us to the home of the forums. I know there is another home button a couple of cm lower that does this already, but it is just nice to have things top left.
Not sure if this is just me though
It's not just you.
Couple of things that I don't think anyone's mentioned yet:
1) What happened to the Next and Previous buttons on news? Not keen on all this forward/backwardsing
2) Comments? I assume this is just a tickbox once you're happy with the forums?
Also, The links to the forum from news pages are broken, and should probably be above related links?
Here's an example that shows the different purples, different gradients, different styling and some of the random colour scheme being used across the forums. There's also the message bubbles and the bit-tech logo which are fairly low res images for what they're being used for.
Also, I'd like to add uploading an image to the site as something that's got a weird UX flow to it. I didn't have the time to figure out how to add an album so I just used imgur.
Cool! I like it. Really fast and joy of joys, no thread ratings for trolls to feed on.
Good work lads.
Has anyone mentioned the whiteness yet?
I tried to break stuff. I really did. I stopped short of trying to report an admin. You guys have done a great job.
Cheesecake ... OK, that needs fixed. Some of the old BT cheek got lost in the migration. The trophy titles lack mention of cheesecake too.
Forum seems to work really nice on my mobile, although my personal opinion is there's a little too much white, I'd like to see a dark theme or maybe replace some white with grey, bar that great work guys.
Work in progress. The dark theme is ready and made, you can see screenshots in some of my posts. There is currently an issue with importing it properly from our test environment to the live forum. We've made progress on the issue and ill post an update somewhere when there's more
Please please can we get a optional dark theme? my retinas are burning!
Hey there MLyons,
Thanks for the reply to my comments and I'm glad to see that themes are being worked on!
Another couple of comments (not sure if anyone has brought these up yet) after using the forums for a couple of hours are:
A 'scroll to top' button, maybe a scrolling one that stays at the bottom right corner of your current browser window?
I always found the option to only view the authors posts an excellent way to catch up on project progress (less scrolling through comments more reading about the modding/work being done), is there a way of implementing this for the new forum?
Thanks for listening.
Was just going to add this. As an example:
Theme issue in settings: dark background and dark text
Separate names with a comma.
