The dropdown menu for threads on firefox in dark mode on PC shows white on grey text, illegible.

Still getting used to it, but thank you for all the hard work, I know it's a lot.

Someone earlier mentioned the drop down menu on mobile only lists the page you're currently on--that's still the case, but I did notice that if you click it again, all the options show up, so there's something a little buggy there still.
I am not sure still what this means, this is what I see on the drop down menu on mobile.  What are you missing from here?


The other dropdown menu at the bottom of the page to navigate between forum sections. Say you're in a thread in Whatever and want to go to Useless Wooden Toy Banter. The dropdown menu only shows Whatever.

I'm only getting the option to go to the forum section I'm currently in when I click the drop down menu on mobile. I attached a screenshot. iPhone 5 iOS 10.

What's the status on old articles on the site?

Thanks Nick! Looks great!
I have them in a section updated on the site, but they are all super broken cause no one is updating/maintaing links/images etc... I am trying to figure out if it is worth putting up a 50% broken portion of the site, what do you guys think?

I'm biased but my heart would be 50% broken if it all disappeared.

I noticed that there were 0 guests viewing the UWTB board, just wondering if the site's been updated to reflect actual guests or not.

You've done a great job, by the way!

On mobile I have no option to click to the last post in a thread from the board.  That little box with the arrow is not there.  This is on mobile safari.

Can't see rep or post count for anyone on mobile, was that intentional? Not the biggest deal.
Added them back in.

Would like avatars also. Also the colors between posts are too similar IMO. Old way was more clear where it all changes from one post to another. Now it's all a bit of a mess on mobile especially. Also getting to the unread link on mobile was difficult. After clicking on my avatar the drop down menu went behind the search bar, which made clicking the links a bit difficult.

Other than that, I like it. Seems much faster. 👍
Made some changes, but am struggling with the whitespace on the left now, anybody got any creative solutions?

I wanna thank you for all the effort youíre putting into this.

Hereís some suggestions for mobile:
1. Avatars below the username.
2. Move those icons w/e they are elsewhere (after the user name perhaps?)
3. Move the quote button with the ignore etc. buttons
4. Make rep & post count visible
5. Reduce the white space by having the thread title & time next to the avatar. I tend to forget which thread Iím in and liked that you could check above every post.
6. Somehow make the sigs more clearly sigs. Now it can be confusing as fuck.
7. Make the colors between posts differ more. There needs to be more contrast for it to be clearer when it changes to a new post.
8. Those lines that the actual post is between are good. Maybe put a similar line (but not the same) between posts.
9. Make the reply box bigger.
10. Search box masks the drop down from the avatar.

I attached some pics to make it clearer.
1st is about it being unclear when a post ends and a new one begins.
2nd is about sigs being too similar to posts.
3rd is about unclarity as well. Is it an empty post or a post from someone without a sig?
4th is about the reply box.
5th is about the drop down.

Damn, I didn't realize how many people use this on mobile.

I think the new version, in dark mode, looks way cooler than the last one.

I've tried to embrace it, but the more I try, the more I want the old site back. I don't care if some aspects of it sucked, I still loved it.

Can you make an option to go back to the old version?

The mobile view is brutal, there so much wrong with it I'm not sure where to start. One major thing is why is the whole thing got the margin or padding reducing the content width for no reason . The purple blue bars down the size are pointless. Optimize for the content and readability.
Make the content 100% width, get rid of all these crazy ass colours. Simplify it as best you can. If your using a theme just pick the simplest these available.
I'm not sure how you even post I had to quote to publish this

like how there's light/dark maybe add a classic option?
i can't get w/ this. oh, i don't get to see how many ignores i have but maybe that's good? no ignores, no reps. just p-people, ponyboy.

Dark mode should change the blue to 75% grey. The contrast makes that blue a lot harsher on the eyes.

Can you enable embedding from tumblr?

Also, I see that I can't gnar or kook when on the site on my iPhone, or see rep/post count. Tried requesting the desktop site, but it didn't do anything.
gnar kook was included in the mobile changes which just got pushed through the cache, check now you should be able to.

Trying to figure this out, do you mean this menu?

which opens like this?

the time schedule of the messages is wrong, or I see in the future
in dark mode, some text is unreadable, like the "unread, replies, logout" window that appears when you put the mouse on your avatar at top right of the screen, all white !

This is the kind of feedback I can get behind.
Some of the changes requested were made already, but hadn't cleared the cache I will mark off what I think I have address but let me know if the solutions is not suitable.
1. Avatars below the username. -- I moved them to the right is this ok?
2. Move those icons w/e they are elsewhere (after the user name perhaps?) -- Working on this area
3. Move the quote button with the ignore etc. buttons -- This is hard because that require it to actually change the physical layout for mobile vs adjusting via CSS. 
4. Make rep & post count visible -- Done
5. Reduce the white space by having the thread title & time next to the avatar. I tend to forget which thread Iím in and liked that you could check above every post. -- Working on this area
6. Somehow make the sigs more clearly sigs. Now it can be confusing as fuck. -- Added a dotted border to seperate these, but I an inset them or other treatments if this is not good.
7. Make the colors between posts differ more. There needs to be more contrast for it to be clearer when it changes to a new post. -- Did this earlier just cleared the cache.
8. Those lines that the actual post is between are good. Maybe put a similar line (but not the same) between posts.
9. Make the reply box bigger. -- Done Full width now
10. Search box masks the drop down from the avatar. -- Done earlier but just now cleared the cache

Times are based PST where we are located, it is correct for me.
I fixed the menu bug you mentioned.  Thanks for the heads up.

I made the content full width, to post on mobile there is an icon like this at the bottom. Is this not clear enough (actual question not sarcasm)?
