I'd change the hypertext back to black, especially for names. It clashes with the people in WIZ.
I know, this is one of the tweaks that I need to do. I'll fix it before the days over.

(Adblocked the new background.)

I really like the new forum skin. Other than moderators being blue and the post icons now looking outdated, everything else looks snappy and bright.

I didn't know what else to use and no one suggested anything. ._.

There's literally nothing drawing me to realize that forums have new posts in them

Crimrose is bright as fuck, lily is bright as fuck. The only reason I realize crim is different is because she has black on her. The theme is white so the hyperlinks just blend into the background. I can barely take a glance and see the difference between the white paper and the orange paper. I scroll down and I swear I see an orange paper, but it's just the papers and the black headers mixing together to fuck with my eyes and no one has actually made any new posts.

I don't go onto a forum after brawling people's shit ingame just to do work trying to read the fucking forum. This theme actively works against getting everything you need to know at a glance.

Your testing forum is pretty inadequate. Are there even any mods there?

There doesn't need to be. I only use it to develop themes for Forumotion forums.

Also, I gave you guys the link to my test forum and you have a couple of days to say anything about it and give your opinion.

There are no mods, so it'd be impossible for us to realize, "wow, mod names really do not show up on this forum".

>gave link etc
it doesn't matter, your test forum doesn't represent how using the theme in an actual posting environment feels. i can look at your theme and be like "meh okay" but when it comes to actually using it there's an issue

OK, at first glance, I really liked the new forum look.

After reading posts for a half of an hour, though, this level of brightness is irritating.

I feel like I've been staring at the sun.

the Crim and Lily images on the top is disturbing me more than it should...

I don't know why.

i think the new topic button being yellow is ugly as hell and clashes with everything and should be changed to dark blue or something like that

like nothing else on the entire page is yellow why are those two buttons yellow

Why not just make it blue then make it yellow when hovered over? Is that impossible?
Found out the new color code!

It's either they changed it after your post or your color preception is kind of messed up Stick, or maybe you are looking at the monitor from a wrong angle, that can distort the color on some monitors

This theme makes me want to visit this forum less than before. It's too bright.

I don't mind the brightness, but I really don't like the background :V

Imo making it a little darker would help a lot.

I wonder what everyone has a problem with a bright theme. Don't any of you go outside? It's much brighter out there.

I find darker colors more pleasant to look at. A lot more.

Reason why my screen's brightness is always on the lowest. Bright colors just feels like your eyes are burning when you look at it for too long. And since this is a forum where people like to have long arguments, you'll be spending a lot of time reading.

I've spent the last hour looking at new topics and I don't have a problem with it and my screen's brightness setting is at 80%

Now put it to 100%

Tell me what you think about it.
