Post 'em here.
Maybe change the dark scheme's color of spoiler buttons to something that stands out better against quotes and background. They were grey in the old layout right?
idk. lets see.
Reversing the colors for font and background seems to work.
Edit: Oops, didn't see that there was an actual theme named WIP until I checked the other threads.
Aye. The white button green text would work great.
I think the heading options of "Forums" "Watched Threads" etc could benefit from slight line breaks. It just looks as if all the options are floating ATM.
If a user doesn't have a signature the Report button looks like it's part of thepost.
Adding the line before the sigature even if the user doesn't have one should fix the problem nicely.

Also, the current dark green background (#0a1c0b) doesn't match the dark green around Anakin Harry (#091b0a).
While it's barely noticeable, it can't be unseen. The attached file should match the new colour scheme better.
Different theme lopeck, that's from the Dark Lord Potter style while this thread is for the one titled WIP.
Also, the old Anakin and burning house images are http and they're ruining my nice green padlock.
Yeah I know, need Raven to give me the url's for the files on the server since they changed location. He'll get to it once he's home.
The button that surrounds 'go to first unread' at the top and bottom of threads cuts off at 'go to first'.
Edit: Seems to only happen on threads with one page.
Would it be possible to have every person who thumbs up a post visible, like it was before? Right now it stops showing names after 2 or 3.
It's a space saving feature, if you really want to see who liked/thumbed it just click the "# others".
Sure, I just thought it looked better visually to see a wall of thumbs up on some posts.
I miss the colorful thumb walls simply because it was one of my indicators to stop and fully read a post within a discussion that I'm only skimming. This could be accomplished in other ways though. Maybe the "# of others" could change color with every interval of 5. Couldn't even begin to think how one would code that though without a complicated conditional script.
Those speech bubbles next to each forum on the home page look pretty silly, imo. Are there any plans to change it? I preferred the old lightning bolts.
I agree with Khan and Feanor on the thumb wall thing. Stumbling across one on the forums is a fun thing to see. It also seems like I have the option to give out thumbs now, although I'm pretty sure my post count is too low to do so.
@Jon Threadmarks on WIP theme are borked.
Below that is a list of dates, but with no clickable direction to the actual threadmark. Does this for anything that has threadmarks setup.
Edit, nevermind it's working for other threads now.
Just seems to be that thread with Zenzaos drabbles in it thats fucked.
^ Yeah, when I click the 'Story Content' option and it brings up that list I can't click anything, but when I hover over the 'Story Content' option and it drops down I can click the blank spaces where the threadmarks should be listed and it jumps me to them respectively.
Color isn't a bad idea. I'd like to bring the wall-o-thumbs back, but it's unfortunately less trivial than I'd hoped. I did a fairly clever workaround to mod the forum into listing all thumbs, only to run into a roadblock. To make things fast at serve time, Xenforo stores an array of [userid, username] pairs inside the post its self. That works really well and all. During import, I made sure that even posts with 200 thumbs ended up with an array of 200 [userid, username] pairs representing all thumbs. But Xenforo is clever.
Xenforo, in the interests of performance, stores a thumb count on each post + the last 5 people to thumb up a post. Just the last 5. They store who thumbed what in a different database table which is unfortunately a little too slow to always read while producing a response, which is why they're cached on the post themselves.
So, I listed all thumbs. Worked great for old posts that hadn't been touched since the import. Posts which had been thumbed/unthumbed since the migration only had 5 users in the thumb list.
We're back to 3 users + thumb count for now, until I write an additional mod to get Xenforo to not truncate the thumb list.
There are 4 links to the front page, the one on top of DLP seems like a waste of space.
It'd look like this if taken out:
Separate names with a comma.
