There's an option to hide signatures but nobody uses them. As a random example, Paul Calf has a location set, has a flair set, and is a golden member. All this info is in the profile header and appears on every post. It's hard to see where the post starts. The previous theme hid all this away.

Monospaced font in this reply box is a bit strange.

(Firefox on Android, yes I'm the one Firefox user left)

Ooh I like the quick reply button

Can't see any avatars on iPhone right now, love the darker colour theme

Yeah that font is gross.

Will look into the other stuff later.

Tried both tick on and tick off on Don't Show Avatars, no avatars showing

Using Chrome browser & Android phone

To be honest, the layout change means there's more info vertically between each post now, which I find obstructive... the avatars would make that even worse.

It used to be fine (for me anyway) having that all packed to the left of the post itself. Appreciate that other people used to hate manipulating the desktop browser format on their phones though.

Actually,John Bluthal died on November 15th,2018.
(HWPV features definitely told me I wouldn't be shagging her on this date in 2018,though).As you were.

pigamus

I hate and fear change

Edit: The font icon appears to be in Stymie Bold Italic, like you get on the side of old sixties buildings, that's quite cool!

I was worried that all YT links would turn into embeds (which would certainly mess up sentences with links) but thankfully it's a separate embed feature, sorry I sound like a complete idiot.

Ugh! Site now has a dependency on ajax.googleapis.com

What they could do with is a slide function allowing you to quickly check the poster details while still allowing for ease of reading.

Definitely another request for a light theme here (or even enable the SMF default theme as a stopgap). It's very, very hard on the eyes on my desktop at the moment.

(Also, on Safari, the editor text uses the default monospaced font, which while at least it's not Courier, is still absolutely gigantic in this theme, though does at least give it the impression of typing on a Speccy.)

Difficultly reading is a major advantage with the shite you lot post.

pancreas

Can I shock you? I quite like it.


The Guppy

It's a big improvement on mobile.

My favourite thing is sites that can switch their light/dark theme at dawn/dusk, like modern operating systems do. I don't know if that's possible and an easy thing to add, but if it is, and it is, gies it plz!

icehaven

I'm finding this extremely hard to read. The grey and dark blue fonts are all but invisible.

i like the darker palette for certain, but i'm really struggling to read now. the theme somehow makes cab feel very web 2.0

the default font when typing in a message is a bit weird to read also. sorry barry I don't mean to be overly critical

yt embeds are cool. it's decent of you to offer pronoun options! thanks for keeping the site updated and all that xx

Just realised what the new theme reminds me of. It's posting on NotBBC.

Does this mean we get tags back tho

Butchers Blind

Wake up to this and my milk has gone off. FML.

Asking browser to show desktop version returns old style layout

Do people still go for walks in your time?

Also, nothing to do with the new theme per se01, but I seem to be having trouble in changing the writing under me avatar. I don't particularly want the current bit of writing to stay there forever, but every time I try to change it, I get telt that I'm not able to be changing me picture, even though that's not what I 'm trying to do ( I'm deffo trying to enter stuff under the " writing a load of old cobblers under your picture bit). Any reason for that?

QuoteDid I sleep through clowne?

Nobody sleeps through clowne.

Tell you what, I'm loving this "quote selected text" option when you highlight something in a post.

Also can't see avatars. I hate this, change it back. (Not really)
