Quick reply at the bottom of the thread is still missing.

I know this is getting picky but I never hit the forum homepage. I usually start at active post and then jump straight to view your post.

Any way to put all those link in the sub-head with the search so they are available on all pages?

Also thanks for taking the feedback and putting it in place.

post content is darkened :dance: but i think thats not going far enough - all the light grey (dates etc) has to go as well IMO

Better... but still feels a bit painful. I think mute is right - all of the light grey (text, lines, etc.) needs to be darker.

yes! on the current list.

1. adding the view (my,unanswered,active,new) links in a more permanent & accessible spot
2. another contrast bump
3. mark all as read on forum index pages & subpages

We're getting there. I'm enjoying the quick reply RIGHT NOW.

Still way too much whitespace.

I know this site is a work in progress with all the requested changes, but this is just butt ugly.

@ristau5741 you caught us mid update. Refresh & you'll see that's the view posts (unanswered, active, new, your posts).

Update:
increased contrast on lines & text again
decreased whitespace in places
moved the view post options into the VIEW dropdown by the searchbox - so it's present on all pages & removes some whitespace
added mark as viewed on index and sub-index pages

I haven't been pleased so far, but since most functionality is back (view your posts, quick reply), it's okay now.
Still don't like the colors but that's a matter of personal taste. It's clearly readable so that's fine.

I don't see quote buttons however, you guys do?

another issue on the list o things to do, noticed this yesterday when recovering my password, emails sourced from spish.net.
PM notifications may also be that way, but since I can't PM myself, I can't test.

while I'm at it, the captcha thing is flaky, after a few login attempts i started having to enter the captcha answers, but they only show up on every other login attempt.

Try a fresh reload of the page with F5, worked for me.

I have found Steam forums (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/) to be the most easy on eyes, especially during night.

(Oh, I didn't realize we had no option to make a text point to a link so I could avoid putting up the whole link thus wasting space :oops: )

Any chance a dark theme is possible ? :pray: Just two themes are enough. Something in a darker shade with equally pleasing design as the current one would be preferred

When I get a PM, I'd like a link to that PM on the forums, say in the bar at the top. As it is, I have to drill into my control panel if I don't follow the link in the email that's sent to me when I get a PM.
