is it just me or the "new" icons are much less noticeable than a simple white/yellow thingy for the unread posts?
That's about this:
One thing I would like to see is when new posts are made they are more easy to see, like on the Occult forums they have the color orange next to the new posts that are unread, when I open a thread here that says "New" posts sure I could scroll all the way down to the bottom, but theres also the chance that there could have been multiple replys before that. So having it show you which posts are the new ones since the thread was last visited would be nice.
Looks like this engine has different logic to mark new messages. Still didn't find if it's possible to change it.
You can also click that orange "new" to jump to new posts.
I hope it's just a habit question...

SMF can indeed highlight "New" post titles with Bold and the "New" icon could be removed.  It's a question of experience with the forum software,  not habit :P

This white forum hurt eyes, difference is too big between color client game and forum.

When i alt tab from game to forum its pretty violent for eyes.

Why not put the same background of the war2ru main site?

I think EQ has a valid point,  but re-theming SMF to mimic the Wordpress site is quite an undertaking.  It would take quite a lot of time to do.

This. It'd be nice to visually unify the appearance of all the sites, right now ss and server websites both match nicely, but it's a huge amount of work and most people seem to prefer the simple layout. I do get what EQ's saying about the light color scheme being violent on the eyes, and we can probably install a nice dark color scheme that can be selected on a per-user basis.

SMF can indeed highlight "New" post titles with Bold and the "New" icon could be removed.  It's a question of experience with the forum software,  not habit :P

More a question of theming familiarity, but I think iL means that people just need time to get used to the new appearance. (We fear change.) I personally think the little new tags work well enough, but I didn't use the other forum for as long as you lot did either. However, the new posts indicators can almost certainly be customized to look like they did on phpbb, though the old forum is somewhat too offline for referencing atm.

Current theme is fine, but a war2 themed one would be cool.

that's a good question, i know my word was censored but i'm not sure whether it was hor or neeguh. We're encouraged to use "cupcake" instead

which is some serious business, because "filthy cupcake" kinda doesn't really do that to me, does it sound right to you? It's like french fries without mayonaisse, because yes, I eat them with mayonaisse

Lol, talk about slander at its finest. I wonder why Lightbringer would talk to Equinox of all people to tell this kind of comment to if it were even true (Which it isn't), when Equinox is the one who is butthurt when Ripe told him he used to be cool but is just gay now on the occult forums. You just wanna say shit to Ripe because he implied your a homosexual, and then blame LB for your actions, lets face it.
