Was using the classic theme, the changes are nice so I finally switched over.
Lmao. SameThe theme suddenly switched to Lite theme as I was browsing between topics and for a second I thought I got banned
Day 999 of asking for a sad smiley reaction.Hope you all like the new site design! I was never satisfied with Modern and leaned toward the Classic theme ever since we launched Modern a few years back, so the goal here was to take the best aspects of both Classic and Modern and combine them into one uber progeny to rule them all. We have the Classic typeface and thread list with many of the Modern aesthetic elements, but tweaked for improved user experience across desktop, tablet, and mobile browser types.
Special attention was paid to the header navigation, with cleaned up quick links so that you can click between the main forum sections and also your watched threads, trending threads, and new posts, without extra menu diving.
And of course we wanted to give some special incentives to our Gold members, so we included a new Gold-exclusive reaction to have fun with.
A PayPal option was a common request, especially for our non-US members, so that's been added.
I'm sure we've missed a few things here and there, so feedback is welcome and we'll try to address any issues.
I'm aware of what it means, I'm just wondering why it's not consistent.It's short for "subscriptions," which an alternate name for the "watched threads" page.
Hahaha. I got that too. I also saw that in other websites too like it's following me around. I swear I have never googled foot fungas to set some internet ad precedence.
In regards to Gold membership, I still think a tiered system should be introduced, along the lines of Plus, Gold, and Platinum. The higher the tier you are on, the more benefits you receive as a member. I'd happily pay £6.99 a month to help keep the forum running and give me little bonuses. Just an idea, though, and I'll be supporting you through Patreon as soon as I get paid.And of course we wanted to give some special incentives to our Gold members, so we included a new Gold-exclusive reaction to have fun with.

Do you have that many people on there? I mean, I have like two people on mine, and I'm not even sure if they're active anymore.Also - whenever an ignored person gets permabanned he should automatically be removed from people's ignore list, freeing up the slot for potential future new candidates.
Dark Theme is sweet

Want to call it "Subs" at the top? Then call it "Subscriptions" on the left menu. Or if you want it to be "Watched Threads" on the left menu, then call it "Watched" or something at the top.
Edit: Here is a quick and dirty edit (via Dev tools) on what I think would look better.
I think centered looks so much better and is more easily usable. There can be a lower bound on the width so someone with a smaller screen, it'll still fill the entire page. There are a number of ways it could be done.
At one point I've reached the ignore list limit, but most of those console warriors are banned so whenever some new bumbass appears I don't have many slots left, so like I said, it would be nice if those permabanned users disappointed from people's vignore lists, because I'm sure as hell won't bgo back to reviewing who is banned from my list and who is still active.Do you have that many people on there?

I'm not a fan of this revamp. Is there a way to centralize the post field a lot more like it used to be? And be able to permanently have the 3 lines in the upper left corner window visible?
It honestly feels like going backwards here. Like, this is how forums were like in early 2010 and the one we had up until a few days ago was the new modern layout. Hopefully they see this criticism and give us the option.Same. The old layout was a lot easier on the eyes and less. . .I dunno. . ."busy."
