good news, everyone - forum updates apr 2017
« on: April 20, 2017, 08:09:33 PM »
We have a nice new responsive war2 forum theme. This will be the public theme for the forum & also used for all new users, but right now existing users are all still using the old theme, if you'd like to switch you can go to Profile > Modify Profile > Look and Layout and click "change" beside the current theme name.

we also have @mentions to let people know when you're talking about them in some thread, e.g. @mousEtopher

we also have a cool peon icon  :peon:

and, if you haven't visited the discord server yet, there is so much good shit happening there & we're having so much fun, you should join right now! You may visit http://en.war2.ru/discord to join & make sure to invite all your friends

Some nice changes I like the @ feature that is pretty cool. However I am still hoping for a color theme like the en.war2.ru main site or the ladder.war2.ru someday :(

I think the background war2 banner with the paper does not mesh well with the users/war2tv/en.war2.ru link

Also I know blid loves the war2 occult grunt but to me his horns look choppy.

Also when I checked polls, you are not able to see who voted for what even when the option is suppose to be there.

I'll look at it, ty for pointing out -- okay it's fixed now

themed forum to match the main site is probably never happening, sorry man. :< I adapted this one from an existing theme and it was still a huge amount of work. I also deliberately kept it like the old theme since it's familiar & well optimized for usability. any suggestion for the top graphic? more winter tileset maybe?

Looks nice  :critter:

But where is the death catch?
You cannot go: good news, everyone unless there is a death catch somewhere!

 :peon:


I noticed that the (new) tag which would take you to the first unread message is missing at the new skin.
Or perhaps I can not find it.

We could make a forum competition for smilies!!! This :peon: and :critter: are great!

@mousEtopher So? Where is the new? Is there a way to put it back?
I really like the new theme but the new button is necessary.

Hmm, almost back... It appears if I go to the forum topic but not in the Unread.

I usually use the Unread button and then the new. (Like double filtering)

@mousEtopher  Thanks for the work :-)  :peon:

fixed "new" links so they go to last unread post instead of last post in the thread.

added lightbox preview for image attachment thumbnails:


here is a nice thread where you can test it out! :D
