Hello everyone, thank you all for your vigorous feedback.
We just implemented a hotfix that should fix things like the ignore function and cut off avatars. We tweaked the scrolling header on NightEra to be less distracting, and darkened the NightEra banner as well.
We definitely hear you loud and clear on stuff like the brightness of the purple on NightEra and the layout on tablets. These among other things will be high priorities over the next week or so. As expected, there’s a lot that can be improved – this is a beginning and not an end.
As a reminder, the old designs are still available if you prefer to use them.
What are DayEra and NightEra?
These are our new default light and dark themes. Together they represent months of development and a fresh, future oriented look for ResetEra that should provide a superior browsing experience for desktop and especially mobile users. This marks the first time that we have built our own theme wholly from scratch and the first time we have tailored a unique experience for mobile.
Who made this?
DayEra and NightEra are being developed internally by our staff and community volunteers. Into these designs we have poured all of our ingenuity, passion, and dedication. The remarkable individuals involved do not wish to be credited; they only want you to know they do it because they love you. We would like to thank each and every member of the development team, as well as our moderators who pulled double duty as beta testers.
What has changed exactly?
A rundown of some of the new features can be found after this post.
Is this ResetEra 2.0?
No. It is however a crucial step on the path to 2.0 and a milestone in its own right. As we refine and experiment with DayEra and NightEra we will gather information and feedback that will eventually be applied to the 2.0 design. That upgrade is currently planned for later this year.
Can I still use the old skins?
We have made the old LightEra and DarkEra skins available for any users who prefer to use them. Please be advised that they will no longer receive any updates or official support.
Where can I report bugs?
As these new skins have been crafted from scratch, there are bound to be the usual bugs and areas of improvement that will need to be addressed as we continue to iterate. This is the beginning, not an end. Please use the new bug report thread to assist us with this, and take care that your feedback is constructive and respectful of all the hard work that volunteers put in.
