So there was some maintenance a few minutes ago and I don't know if the forums are still being worked on.. But using the yoyo dark theme, the text is pretty much unreadable.

 

It's a dark gray on a slightly less dark gray bg.

Who the genius think that black text on dark grey background was a good idea? not to mention that ugly white border everywhere!

So, obviously some changes occurred during an IP.Board upgrade.

The best thing to do is simply change the forum theme (you can find it at the very bottom left of the forums) until such time that the "dark theme" is updated accordingly.

BTW, I've found a bug (I think), it's still possible for mortals to visit old Team Request topics etc using the direct link to the topic. There's a bump request in the reports right now that we can't do anything with since nobody can post in the archived forums anymore.

The Team Requests forum hasn't gone away, it's still here under Off-Topic / Old Forums.

 

It's like a bad rash.

That theme makes my eyes bleed. The # of posts is green now, not sure if that's what you wanted, just reporting what I saw.

 

Note: To those wondering why it is gray text on a gray background, the reason is ease of reading.

Black text on a white background, due to the 100% contrast is a strain to the eyes, while a more subtle contrast is more pleasant making reading easier.

A thread with a five-star average of only one vote shouldn't be assumed to be the OP's own doing. I, for one, have been a first-voter-of-stars, and this includes for five stars. Was that poster big-headed? Or did someone else come along and do the uplifting? Don't just assume.

Especially to folks like me with sensitive eyes.  I can't read small black text on pure white plain backgrounds for long without getting a headache.  White is too overpowering.

..What happened to the dark skin?

 

It has strange borders that don't fit with the rest of the skin and white quote boxes and stuff that clash with the skin.. It was fine before. Some text has the same color as links which makes it hard to tell which is a link and which is not and the hover link text doesn't make any sense either. 

 

Edit: Oh okay the update has messed around with the skin..

Ok, so why are the Graphics, Sound and Music, Student Area, Team Requests, and Projects categories all under the "Old Forums" subcategory which is under the "Off Topic" subcategory???  I had a heck of a time finding these because they're not under "Resources" or other categories like they should be.  They definitely don't belong in "Off Topic".  

 

What will happen to all the topics in the "Old Forums" category if no one can find them, or when they do find them they need to go through several subcategories just to get to what they were looking for?

Nocturne, you have made small but, to a keen and vigilant eye with an excellent perception like mine, grim mistakes! Shame on you!

 

In the top bar, where you have the message, notifications, username and the sign out buttons, the message and the notifications options aren't all the way down like the username option. The sign out button also doesn't have a hover effect.

Also underneath the topic replies, the lighter gray is one pixel more then needed, thus a pixel high line is visible.

The << and >> in the forum page navigation, are not vertically centered inside the button.

When pressing a button like "Save Changes", the blue glow is one pixel higher then needed (top-side)

 

PS: Not sure if the text info at the bottom of every page should look like that.

Would it be a waste of time to complain about the 5star rating system, where 1 star is the lowest vote you can give?  Its just... theres been a few topics which (to me) deserve 0 stars (meaning theyre not worth a click, a look, a download etc...)    I feel wrong rating 1star for this..  1 star suggests things that shouldn't be suggested for a 0star quality topic or product

The dark theme looks fine as a full site on my phone now.  :thanks:

The mobile version of the site has always been the stock standard one as far as I could tell.

 

How hard is it to just click the "Change Theme" button down the bottom and check?! It's a lot easier than posting.  ;)

Two main issues do seem to persist with the dark theme, the grey boxes on the index and the light themed quotes.

I have actually become used to the boxes though, they seem less bright than when they first popped up.

Can I take this moment of spam-bumping to state how terrible awful this site is on mobile? And how much better it would be if it was identical to what you get on pc.

(im talking about the dark theme, which is the only working one other than the terribly restricted mobile version)

I just switch to the desktop version... it doesn't work very well at all and it's miserably slow, but it's functional, which I can't really say for the mobile version.
