Hi JoyFreak, I see you across the few forums I lurk and appreciate your promotional hustle. :D So I'll give you my only feedback here, though it's more on the petty side:

Any time I open your forum I have an urge to click the icons at the top with the hope of them taking me to somewhere to show me the site's content. For whatever reason these are the most alluring things on the page to me, and they don't really do anything.

The "What's New" link isn't all that visible at first glance, so maybe these icons can be used to help with that.

Indeed. A fresh new look that looks amazing!

Thank you so much L3ta. It's great seeing you around! Your site looks amazing too! You've done some fantastic customisations!

yeah! i love the new look but i think if you added avatars on the threads it would look for super ....

Thank you blaq. I removed the avatars on purpose, felt like they can get repetitive and wanted the homepage to focus strictly on threads/thread titles.. Sort of like a news feed.

Hi everybody,

I've worked all day today to bring a dark version of the default light theme and I can gladly say it's now available for use. For those who have defaulted to the light theme, you can easily change to the new dark theme via a number of ways:

1. Top right corner you'll find a moon, near the search button on desktop or off-canvas menu on mobile.
2. Bottom left corner, in the footer on both desktop or mobile.
3. Via your preferences page.

I'm positive this will be THE theme from here on, which means no more changing.. so get used to it :p.

As always, if you find any bugs or have any suggestions, then fire away! We'd love to hear them.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend thus far.

A little preview here:
