Okay, if by chance this board becomes the main one, then I would like to see a couple of improvements (one I consider mandatory, the other I don't expect to happen).
Mandatory: How do you make it go to the last post in a thread (like the other board does)? Am I missing something? I don't see a way to do that. Always going to the first post in a thread (especially a long long thread) can be very irritating. I know it must be doable but I am not seeing it.
Know it is not going to happen: On the old board I opined that I thought that the gold background would be too bright (too glare-y). Now, after having used it for several days, I see that I was definitely right. Can you mute the background color?
PS -- When I type a lowercase "l", why does it look like an uppercase "L"? Just not used to it.
Edit -- So, just now, I saw that the recruiting threads did put me down at the bottom but other threads (like this one) put me at the top. Don't understand ....
Aesthetics are always a "fun" thing.
My intention has always been to go in and offer other, user selectable, themes using some of the other colors - I just haven't told mrjoolius yet that I want his help with that
So - my intent is for this to be the default color scheme, but I intend to offer others as a choice for those that don't like this. Off the top of my head, at minimum I'd like to do this same look and feel but with the Vegas Gold which I think is a bit less "bright" for folks that the spirit gold is too much.
Short Version - you will have (not sure exactly when) the ability to choose between a few different color schemes.
For the last read, mrjoolius did a good job answering. I wish it was a bit more obvious, but clicking the yellow bubble next to the thread does the trick.
The "l".. well.. that's because of the font this theme uses. I personally find it appealing and didn't necessarily intend to change the font, but I'm open to anything if there's a meaningful chunk of posters that want it.
