    #1. Allow us to use enters
    #2. Differentiate odd and even posts
    #3. Background texture may help
    #4. Textures for the bar with the name and such
    #5. Allow to click a person's name and view their AA.com profile
    #6. Allow a person to get to their own AA.com profile from the forum.
    #7. Reduce the quote text size.
    #8. Avatars should be bigger. 128x128 would be fine..
    You joined the world's greatest army to become a graphic artist? Outstanding!

    I remember when I first used the old black and yellow forum and it was weird..Just took a little time getting used to things. I would assume the same will be true here ;)

    It's clean, it's fresh and so far I like it. I'm happy we get to use avatars now! the only thing I kinda miss already, is being able to see who's on-line. Edit - Can't seem to paragraph, Also the Proving Grounds text in the logo on the forum header could do with growing a bit.
    If my trollery drives you crazy, you'd better put on your seatbelt.

    I second all of Whiplash's suggestions. Another idea is separate the information in your post header. Instead of ^AWA^Devoid Posts: 2Developer, Beta Tester, Player, Administrator
    12 minutes ago in General Discussion Make it at least something like : ^AWA^Devoid | Posts: 2 | Developer, Beta Tester, Player, Administrator |
    12 minutes ago in General Discussion It kinda looks jumbled how it is right now.

    I would like like to have my signature in 4 lines like in the old forum.
    Like this:
    Think positive thoughts,
    say positive words,
    do positive actions
    and the positive grows.

    We have a better text editor that handles that, somehow it didn't get turned on.
    I'm working on getting this fixed now :)
    The game wasn't made exactly to my specifications, so I feel it's broken.

    As others have mentioned, posts run together. Post headers need better organization. Signatures need some separation from main post (color, line, or something). Overall, my main complaint is the color contrast or lack there of. I can sort of see that everything is in container boxes, but it is so close to the background color. The icons also seem to be really low quality.

    EDIT: Text/background contrast is even worse on mobile.

    It seems hard to differentiate between posts, they all seem to blend into one.

    Yes it's how vanilla is built. Without hardcoding the template files, this is what we are stuck with.

    I feel like confused right now. Sure it will be better later.. I hope.. :-)

    It is hard to tell from the forum homepage at a glance which topics have unread material in them. It is much easier to see in safari mobile browser even though it is white instead of black (not sure if intentional).

    Ability to preview signatures would be nice.
  • AAhh! My eyes!
    I'm not really fond of light on dark, but I guess it should take some time before I get used to the way it looks. Now it's lacking a bit on a separation of messages from one another. The bordering should be a little bit obvious and the heading should have a slightly darker tone.

    I think we should go back to the original AA forum design

    The mobile version of the website looks like it still has the default template.
