There should probably be a "new post/threads" option at the top of the forum so people will find it easier to jump into the latest topics with the most recent activity

Wasn’t sure where to ask this...

Why are some posts (not mine or ones I was quoted in) in threads highlighted in color (whole post in a purple box in dark theme for instance)?

Edit: Per below, it’s highlighting the first unread post in a thread you go back to.

DarkEra theme looks awesome. I like the contrast much better than the light era and its more pleasing to look at.

Is there any sort of search function? I've been trying to figure out how to do it but I'm starting to realize it might not be there.
Dark theme looks amazing!

Also, i don't know if this came with this update but I just noticed that the "first unread post" is also highlighted - love this feature!

-Added a Dark Theme. To select it either go to profile Page ---> Preferences. Alternately, scroll down all the way below the bottom breadcrumb and click on the style chooser by Help.
-Mirrored the Bread Crumb on the bottom.
-Self-post highlighting.
-OP in a thread gets a special tag to notify as such.
-New plugin that allows you to disable avatars, as well as images selectively. To do so: go into your account profile --> preferences --> NSFW Options --> select all the time --> then select what you want to hide.
-Post Numbers should appear in Mobile.
-Increased size of Screen.
-Miscellaneous Spacing Issues.

We still have more work to do on Mobile compatibility. We've got some great ideas on it, but it's going to take time to implement. Same with getting a refresh button in there that we feel will work best for our users. Next update is going to take a while, but please hang tight. It will be worth it.
When will loading the new posts via Ajax on mobile to lower data usage implemented? I think it's a crucial feature for mobile users like me.

Changes look great.

I still think GAF looks better when you are just looking at the forum list of topics. The way ResetEra bunhces everything together (topic title, username, time of original post, page numbers) looks so busy and just an overload of info and the readability goes down. GAF spaced things out better.

Just got approved (thanks for that!) but have lurked for a little while now. Just wanted to say that the dark theme is fantastic - even though I don't usually use a darker theme for forums, for some reason I didn't love using the standard Reset Era theme

Dark theme looks great, thanks for all the effort you put into this.

I was a 'light theme on desktop and dark theme on mobile' user myself. It doesn't differentiate any more. First world problems, I know...

Wait, I see animated avatars? Did I miss something?
Some users realized that animated avatars work and it started a wave animated avatars being used. A thread was made to find out what the community wants and in the end animated avatars were prohibited. You can still upload them but when a mod sees one the user usually is told to use a static avatar.

I still do not get this self posting highlight.

And why are some users posts highlighted purple in the dark theme?

I can't believe how modern the forum design is. This is on another level.

The other forum sure got lazy on innovation.

Wow. I like all of the improvements! Looks great on mobile. I'm glad a refresh button is on the way too. Great job team.

Dark Theme looks Beautiful!
Saw the DarkERA Theme announcement on Twitter but couldn't check it myself until now.
Thanks Everyone, you are doing God's work.
