Forum changes 09/2017

Post by WildX » 26 Sep 2017, 17:14

Hello everyone! We've made some changes to the forums:

1. The theme has been set to what it used to be a few years back, we'd like to give this version another chance as I believe it's cleaner and simpler to navigate; if you want to share your opinion on this, please do so through the poll or by posting below. It's only a trial period and I will revert the changes if they are unpopular.

2. The Manasource section has been removed from the development forums. It had been inactive since July 2014. The whole section has been saved elsewhere so if the project is ever picked up again we will make it available for whoever is interested.

It is possible to change the theme in our setting ? (usually it's possible in most of forum i use, but here i can't find the case)
I don't know what is more simple, so i just want to compare by myself ^^

Not too long ago you could change the forum theme at > User Control Panel > Board Preferences > Edit Global Settings.
Players could select the look they wanted for themselves. I do not know why this function was deactivated.

(Also, the forum clock appears to be too fast, by 6-7 minutes.)

***
Edit: After posting, I talked to 4144 about this. The option to select My Board Style from Edit Global Settings is now visible and working again.
Thank you, 4144.

My bad I forgot to re-activate the option to change the theme in users' settings. It was never intended to be deactivated (thanks 4144) :)

I'm not sure if it was right of me to choose an option, but I looked at the preferences, and I found that I had it set to TMW3, if that helps. I chose the layout, but probably due to familiarity from former days.

Also, the black on white is clear to read as a document, but I'm not stating if it was different I wouldn't use it.

Grab the ropes! Loosen the raft!"); Arrrr!!! ("What a lovely day! Sun shining..."); Arrrr!!! ("Oh no. Looks like more rain. Are our garments dry? Can we stop using them as a secondary sail yet?")

P.S.

My Board Style used to have 3 choices for players:

BBOOTS
TMW Original (tmw3)
Cloudy

Now only the first two appear; "Cloudy" is missing from the list.

IMO, the "Cloudy" theme, with colors of blue and gray, was an attractive look. I am not saying that it should be the main theme, but it would be good to see it added back to the list as an option.
