Great updates. I never understood the big fuss over dark themes....and then I just tried it. Awesome!
I will continue to champion for these changes on mobile but ya'll are doing a great job. Just completely anal suggestions of mine. I know most of these will be familiar with what we had on the other site but I feel it really does make usability better and just removes a bit of clunkyness.
- Getting rid of the quick reply box and just having the post reply button and being taken to a seperate page. (This could be optional maybe for users who prefer either or)
- This bread crumb thing seems like it can be done in a better way than the current icons. Text may look better than the icons? Gaming | Off Topic. Also the off topic icon I am not sure how it symbolizes off topic lol.
- The thread page having the name of threads be a darker color when you haven't viewed it. I really miss this one.
I have an issue, don't know if official Dark Theme is causing this but now (on mobile) my alerts are right next to my profile avatar so I cant click on alerts directly without bringing up the profile options up. It might be my fault though, don't know
Am I the only one that (on mobile) taps the icon next to the forum category and wait a few seconds before realizing "oh, I'm supposed to tap on the text title"? The big purple icon to the left of "Announcements", "Video games" and "EtcetEra" really looks like a button. My brain steers my finger towards that instead of the fiddly title.
After a day of trying it out, my biggest complaint about the dark theme is the lack of clear indicator that a thread it updated in the watched thread list. There's only the dot, but it's not bright enough to see at a glance. I think it would help if the titles of the updated threads are white instead of grey(ed out). Like this:
Realized today that the dark theme is apparently an account setting on this forum. At the old place it seems like it was a local cookie, meaning I could have light theme at work (blends in better) and dark theme at home simultaneously. Not here unless I manually change it every time.
I don't imagine that's going to change, though. :(
Proper in line spoiler formatting coming soon I hope.
-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.
Dark theme is way better on mobile than on the other site.
I love all the neat QOL features on this forum, but could you make the icons and buttons a bit bigger on mobile? It's almost like playing Xenoblade Chronicles X on the gamepad. Or I suppose... Like buttons for ants! :-P
