Ok so I understand that not everyone loves the new theme and I knew this would happen. You can't please everyone. What I can do though is listen to your feedback and try to make the theme better! So please post your feedback here. Please try and be polite. No need to yell at me or whatever.

Preaze make the buttons above and below post smaller.

Preaze darken the background color of the Home / Search / Members etc icons.

Change the big grey box that you've put around the content that's attaching itself to the menu. Not a fan of useless blank space sitting there either, but I'm guessing that's where your adds are.

---

With webdesign it's important to target a main group. Now, I have really no idea if you're actually trying to target a group or changing it to your own liking. This theme is sort of.. childish for my feeling. Meanwhile a lot of the active members are adults or in their late teens. Not really fitting.

---

The buttons. They don't feel like buttons, and the cursor doesn't even change to indicate that this is a button. They also don't change CSS in any way when hovered over or clicked on. Which is a big part in usability. Because it makes things clear. You can make the most amazing looking website ever, but if your usability is shit, your website is also shit.

---


The area with the topic title etc seems to have two images that don't align with each other properly. The bottom has moved one or two pixels to the right. Though even if that was fixed, you'd still have the issue of people clearly being able to see that it are two images. It's not an endless image that can go on forever without a change.


Idk what's with this forum, I saw it on the previous one too. Between Guest and the v^ there's supposed to be a line. These lines just randomly appear and disappear as you scroll through the posts.


These are bothering me, a lot. Because all buttons are the same now and a different row of buttons is at the top of the post, it's hard to tell to who the PM buttons belong. I have to double check each time to see if it's actually the right person. And the buttons in general just aren't clear. They have no presence, I feel like they're not there. A button must be clicked on. If nobody wants to click on your button, it's a bad button or the function behind it has almost no meaning. I don't like clicking these buttons because they don't look like buttons.

---

I'll add more if I manage to catch more things that are either mistakes or I feel like should or can be improved. I also agree with the things that Anti posted.

I'm not talking about the Guest, I'm talking about the missing line.

Main background is a 1.04MB PNG. Are you on cracks?

Menus looks super amateur with the dark blue border and stick right to the content box. Get creative.

Not my ads. Forumotion's ads. I can't do anything about that. Why don't you like it? I can make it so it's not touching the menu.

Well a lot of places are moving to a more "flat" design so that's what I was trying to do.

My cursor changes just fine when I hover over things.
The old buttons never changed when you hovered over them.
I'm also limited to what I can actually do. I can't do much in terms of changing the HTML. I'm mostly just able to change the CSS. So if something doesn't have a "class" or "id" with it, then I can't do much to it. I'll look into changing the buttons though.

The reason these don't line up is because in the 2nd one, there is two starting points.

They have never lined up. Not even in the other theme. Why start complaining about it now? Even if I could get the images to line up, I would have to change the image completely anyways because of the way the hexagons are there.

I've never had this issue and this is the first time I'm hearing about it. It might depend on what browser you're using. I don't really know. =/

The buttons are in the exact same place as they always were before. So if you're having this issue now you probably had it back int he old theme. And I'm looking into changing the buttons.

That's not really constructive criticism. That's just telling me what you don't like based on your opinion. xD
I will look into change the buttons for "profile, pm, quote, edit, etc" to make them look more like buttons.
