    I liked the last theme better.

    Make the fonts a bit smaller, especially in the thread browsing areas.
    Make the posting area bigger. I have a massive monitor and only like 50% of it is being used by this forum.

    What is going on with the forums. During my first post (about a month ago, the forum was decent. I can understand a little darkening of the color. But the recent two changes has turned the forums into a wreck. The layout is too spread out and should be condensed in height.

    There needs to be more contrast between the various dark shades. I liked the first layout. the second was still tolerable. This current layout is hideous.

    Even though I hate "Vanilla" forum software, I like the new look! Whomever is in charge of web development: Thank You ! The site finally looks seamless between all the pages and sections. Before it was a mish mash but understandably so due to phpbb etc...

    Don't forget about the HD player model renders and screenshots for the fansite kit too :wink:

    Keep up the good work guys, hooah.

    new "unread" discussions/topics with no replies yet... these are not given the yellow colored text to indicate it is "new/unread"


    mousing over the "general discussion" text at the top of the forum does not change the mouse icon to indicate it is a link. (mousing over "home" to the left of it does though)

    notifications do not show up in the top right as previous.

    it doesn't even properly show up on the pullout menu on the top right side (which you have to manually open to even check for such a thing). i had a (1) next to the word profile. i went there. nothing. i then check the side panel again and there was a (1) next to the word notification... all of this extra button clicking is getting in the way, when it should be viewable without manual interaction whatsoever.

    Yeah, the mobile site is pretty good... although it would be nice if the quote function worked.

    I don't like this theme at all. Forget Tapatalk. I don't use it. I have a 1080 screen for my PC and a 8 inch Tablet for casual communication and this just sticks in your face. And who wants "round" avatars? And now everyone is shouting in Bold. Plus, I have to super-scroll down the page to read everything. You are going to wear my scroll wheel out.

    This forum needs an overhaul. Peeuuuw!

    In addition to the in-game profile, don't forget an advanced search function. It's about time.

    Besides cleaning a few things up, i'm fine with it good job.

    Clickable text need to be highlighted. Here's an example from another topic. Clickable text is invisible.

    Bear_82 wrote: I've got the Knoll Life chair. Mine is about 10 years old, but still going strong; have had no issues with it. Back support is great, which is how I ended up with it. My then-employer had custom ordered one for an employee recovering from back surgery. He hated it, so I latched onto it. After about six months, I decided I needed one for home, so started searching. As I recall, at the time it retailed through Knoll for about $700; I paid about 1/2 that through Amazon. Current retail is about $1000; $400 on Amazon this morning.

    There is no like button, and like others have said there are no notifications to tell when there are new posts to. Also don't know if its the font or contrast but this s***s hurting my eyes reading it.

    Miss like/dislike too, but I just saw a small notification from your post now (lower left corner).

    Notifications needs to be clickable like it was before update so you can click it and go right to the post.

    I think it complements the game quite nicely and much better looking than the prev one, I'm sure with feedback they will get all the kinks ironed out and it will be perfect. I really like the layout, font and color scheme used, anyway here is some things I have noticed so far..

    - Emotes are entirely too big.
    - Like/Dislike buttons were a good thing, please consider re-adding them.
    - Spacing in some places is a little out of whack

    - Clickable link to my soldier profile on my profile username is no longer available.
    - Activity text (above Username] in a persons profile needs a color change as it belnds into the background color..

    - New topics people make do not have any sort of indication they are new.
    - Hyperlinks in peoples posts are same color as plain text and impossible to make out unless you mouse over.
    - Notifications on ones followed/participated topics are not popping up anywhere.
    - Add a link to the bug reporter on the forum, ideally in user menu sidebar?

    Overall, I'm rather happy with the new skin :)

    Two threads with the same title? or am I seeing things? whats happening :lol:

    People with overlapping text: what browser are you using?
    The game wasn't made exactly to my specifications, so I feel it's broken.

    In my previous post I quoted myself but it looks like one post.

    Chrome myself, 1920x1080 resolution.

    I have adblock which can cause layout issues on website/forums sometimes but have it disabled over all AA sites.
