    Liking the new look - was due a change, I think. Keep up the good work guys.

    Need a new avatar now!

    Oh and +1 for the dark theme wait. Will be a lot better.

    Is it by design that the site no longer expands to fit the width of the user's window?

    And, how much longer can we expect it to take for a dark theme?

    Yes it's by design, the frontpage/reviews sponsored skins will arrive on the forum, I don't have an ETA on the dark theme I'm afraid.

    I didn't think you all made much of the holiday season. ;) (Or are we all talking about the same holiday?)

    I might be missing something. I want to check a thread which has no new messages since I last checked and when I click to open it I am at the very first page. In the previous version I would be shown the last message/page I last checked.

    It doesn't have to work the exact same way. Even a more rough solution would be nice though. For example an icon/button where it loads the thread at the last post posted would be convenient enough.

    Can I link a video from Facebook? If so, how?

    Copy the video link on facebook and insert the link inbetween the Media tags. Or just add the link from the insert from the Film tag inserts, Second option past the Smillie insert option.



    MEDIA=facebook]LINK Here[/media

    I had to miss out the opening [ and the closing ] to stop the link embedding.

    That worked like a charm! Thank you!
    If I understand what you're saying, if you open a forum, e.g. the Gaming Discussion, hover over the title of the thread you're wanting to check. As you hover over the title, very lightly gray numbers will show up below that to indicate how many pages of responses there are. You can then click on the last number in that sequence to get to the last page.

    Well that certainly is a solution. I guess I will have to get used to do that each time. Thanks.

    You're quite welcome. I only know the answer because I had the same problem. ;)

    You are welcome.

    After posting up a video that were posted on my F/B, I noticed that there is a small issue. These video's require Flash so when I look at the new posts via safari on IOS they are not visible..

    Just a minor flaw I suppose.

    So now that the website has been running imo very smoothly and frankly quite like the off white mosaic background..... reminds me of a cleaner version of pixelated artistic feel from the later 90's websites... but modern... (weird)... Will animated avatars start to be implemented again, or are we going to see a lot of the old forum rules and signature stipulations changing soon (updated)?

    Ok, first issue with the new theme, when posting the title is invisible/too bright too see until you highlight the text in the actual post/message itself thus you can not see what you're naming your thread until after you have done so.
