You are doing amazing work. The energy you are putting into this paired with the transparency makes the place feel like home on the internet!
Since i can't find a better place for this right now: Putting a fat red warning or reason for a ban on top of the post in question is fantastic. Really draws attention to what is appropriate and what's not.
Make sure that the warning/ban messages also contrast a lot with the forum color scheme when someone is using the dark theme.
Reading this is like venturing into the Twilight Zone. You guys are running this place the right way, opposite to many forums I've frequented in the past. Kudos to your staff and various teams. You all are doing an awesome job and in such a short amount of time.
Love what I am reading. I really like the forum features and the moderation seems to know what is going on and have a good vision. Hopefully a funding method can be figured out quickly. Would anonymous donations not work?
Ads are the devil. They can be loud/obnoxious, click bait, a security hazard and may even demand that certain topics can't be discussed anymore. That other place had to "ban" weed talk for a while because the Ad provider (Google adsense I guess) demanded this etc.
I much rather have it wikipedia style. Every year there is a call for donation to keep the side running for another year.
Been looking after a poorly Mrs Lamptramp this week so not had time to keep up, but the level of work everyone has put in is remarkable. Great idea for mod captain/community manager and the newsletter too.
Our frontend team has recruited additional help and is now hard at work on future updates. We can now confirm that ResetEra v1.2 will contain the much anticipated dark theme. However, given the importance of this feature, we want to take our time and make sure that we do it right. Our current estimated timeframe for delivery is 1 to 2 weeks.
Update: 100 posts per page has now been implemented and is available under your account preferences!
