We will be adding themese, that's in plan. If you would know what color variation of this theme would suit you just tell me. Temporarily may be added.

We are working on different styles; I have already tried importing the settings from the old "Igloo" skin (choose style "RoundTable" in the user control panel), but it didn't work very well. Never fear, we have a genius on the case: Robenhagen is back and is having a look at it. :) I'd like to have the old RT skins imported and adapted to suit this forum, so that's what I'm hoping we can achieve.

Conclusion: we are working on changing the forum styles, but it may take some time. Thanks for your patience. :)

Robenhagen has put up a new style called "chSilver", try it out. Tell us what you think. More coming. :)

Game Selector tab on main page is not working (just when wanted to check something from older titles).

We know. The main page is frozen until further notice.

On topic, am I the only one that gets confused by the topic icons? The combination of pen, sunburst and flame seems like a bit too much to parse easily. I'd say removing the pen and making the other two things much smaller would work better (they mean lots of posts in a thread and that you have posted in it, neither is super important information). Meanwhile they obscure the differences between the icons signifying if there are new posts or not (which is super important information).

I get a bit confused by those also. I have gotten used to the old "Igloo" style which is very clear that regard, so the barely visible differences in the prosilver style confuse me.

But at least we have a forum upgrade done, and more styles coming! Heroes Community, meanwhile, still has an archaic forum. :rofl:

I'm using the Round Table board style but I still think it's a shame you have to be logged in for it to show. Overall I don't like at all the new looks of this forum. :(

I can change the "default" style, so that's not a problem.

Maybe we could make a vote for users to choose which style could be the "default" one, what do you think?

Yes, I suppose we could do that when the styles are all finished.

And hopefully one style will involve getting the avatar icon back on the right side... which is left.

We have concluded on that. The avatars are staying on the right side for reasons of flexibility when upgrading in the future, as well as compatibility with board add-ons.

It does feel super weird to have the avatars on the right side though, but is a matter of getting used to it I guess.
