    People will always hate changes - at least, most of them.

    I like the new design, however, i would like a better font-color, both for reading any typing. Grey on dark, and almost grey on grey in the reply-ready is a no-go in 2020. I understand what you're trying to get it to be inspired by the same colors, as the game and so, but the overall colors needs to be corrected a bit. That's for sure. It wont take long time, to make the changes :-)

    Also, fix the top-banner. The current format and size, makes no sense :-)

    I tried to paste a image, and was happy to see that upload startet - however, the image-link was broken, and after trying to submit my post, the page returned this message:
    QT9INq1.png

    _But i'm happy with the better experience, when it comes to using images. The old forum had way to many limitations, related to size and so_ :-)

    And oh, the spoiler-button is missing an icon:

    It would also be nice to have auto-embedded images, like it's done on most other forum-software, nowadays.

      It would be a service to all forum users to remove the spy buttons of facebook at least. Even if someone has no facebook acount, his browsing history is sent to facebook. At least from all sites that have such a button on it.

        Seems any stickied topic can't be replied to. Not just closed ones. (At least for me, on mobile)

        ...so no dev diary posting. Intentional?

          Just to reassure everyone...the current look of the forum is not intended. Someone is working on getting the old theme or something like it back again. These colors are just the default dark theme and will be customized for 7 Days to Die soon.

            Yeh we know that, and we know we can change the colors etc in our settings, but not being able to post like say, in the dev diary... Is that intended or temporary?

              Wait... wut?

              The website is being redesigned live? Nobody thought to get the majority of the work done on a pre-production copy?

                Temporary. Sorry, I was responding to people who were concerned with the wasted space at the top and the color scheme. They didn’t seem to know. Glad you do.

                Being able to post in stickied threads and in the news and announcement forum should return soon.

                  Again, this is not the redesign in progress. This is upgrading vbulletin 4 to vbulletin 5 and using the default forum setup until the redesign can happen. The redesign will occur on a pre-production copy and be uploaded complete. While that happens we have this in the interim. Your patience is appreciated.

                    You're not understanding what gronk is saying, although some of your words make it appear you somewhat do...

                    ... normally, these types of things don't happen in a live environment. They get done offline and when they're ready, i.e. *completely* ready, go live.

                    Making changes like this to a live forum is... Odd.

                      The only thing I found to be genuinely worse is logging in.
                      This new setup automatically logs me out every time so I can't just have one link to start it up with "new posts".

                      If I try that then I get to the login screen... fine, whatever... but then it counts the first login as "a search" even though it never did the search and I get to wait 15 seconds.
                      Still rough around the edges, I guess.

                        I can’t speak to what’s normal. In the discussions we had before the change it was determined that the upgrade would have to happen first and then the theme would have to be done afterward. The upgrade had to happen because the old version was no longer being supported. I’m not a web designer so I don’t know whether the upgrade and the design could’ve all been done behind the scenes and then implemented all at once . People more in the know than me decided to do it this way. Sorry for the annoyance and disruption anyone is experiencing.

                          I'm finding this thoroughly fascinating. There's so much potential here for major crashes and permament data loss. The best bit? It's not my responsibility!

                            Well this is... interesting. I definitely don't like it (mainly cuz I don't like change), but I read the posts and will remain patient in hopes that it gets better.

                            For the record though, I noticed I'm able to edit other ppl's posts and view their IP address and can close / delete topics, etc... I think maybe fixing that should be priority 1. Wouldn't want any trolls taking advantage.

                            Also noticed I can see Moderator hangouts section and probably other sections I'm not supposed to as well. Luckily, I can't view them (just redirects me to main forums page).

                              As stated by Roland, this is a temporary theme and a new version is being made.

                              The banner has been made smaller for the temp theme. I will take a look at the posting of images and the error you received. As for the spoiler icon, it isn't missing an image as that is the vBulletin look of the spoiler button

                              It was just you, you were still listed as a moderator for some sections. Thank you for being honest and bringing this to our attention.

                                Haha, that's funny. Good thing I'm always honest. I was also able to do a lot more, which I pointed out to Roland in PM... for example, I had access to moderator / admin panel where I could have adjusted things like lower Guppycur's post count and make mine higher, lol. You fixed it all though... I'm back to being a peasant again.
