      The dog is the god of frolic
    1st impression is I like it.  Good background pic that doesn't seem to interfere with the text.  Noticed you can't see the number of given and received thank yous.  Actually, can't find the thank you button. Also noticed you can't see the icons next to "administrator", etc. in the member'rs profile in posts on left.   I'll have to use it for a day or two to give my complete thoughts...so I shall return....

    One suggestion: Put a thank you button in the OP's...

    Liking the new theme more and more.  Definitely 100x better than the old.  A few suggestions:

    -When replying to a post by quoting, the original quote text is very small and hard to read.  I would suggest increasing the font size

    -I like how when you hover over a post the transparency decreases so you can see the text better.  However, I would suggest making all the posts with a decreased transparency as default, instead of having to  hover over them to to decrease transparency.

    -Related to the above, I would actually decrease the transparency in posts, or wherever there is text, just a tick more so it stands out a little better from the background and make it less "busy".

    -I would use tool tips for when hovering over  icons on the left side, similar to what you have on the right side related to a persons profile.

    -Maybe use colors instead of white for the icons on the left and right.  I noticed the VIP icon is yellow and that looks really good.  Be nice to have some more color there.

    -I would use a brighter green for the separation lines, such as #00ff00, but now I'm really nitpicking...

    -Maybe try to find a way to incorporate one of the Area Rom themes somewhere.  I only have a Centura but I know some of the Rom themes are really cool.   Very faint like a watermark.  Maybe in the background pic somewhere or as an icon for the tab in browsers (instead of the black and white 51).

    Anyhow, you have done a  wonderful job with this.  Its so much better than before.  Keep up the good work...

    ok
    • less transparent on the boxes, when you hover on them they should be real dark.
    • Changed the green to the suggested.
    • Larger font in the Quote box.
    • ToolTips I will try to work on, but you can always hit the top icon, expand the menu, and see the words.

    Love the theme PureEvil, however the background image repeats twice for me (might jus be where I am on my Moto G First Gen.)

    Update: I fixed the issue, Google Chrome was just being weird on my phone.

    I have been making a lot of changes, but most of them are things you wont see "backend" type stuff. However if you do get an error or see a problem and it stays there for a few hours, then please let me know.

    Just wanted to let you know I spent a bunch of time updating the OP of a thread I started and when I went to save the changes it took me to that error page and didn't save any of the changes.  Tried a couple of times and same result.  I'll hold off updating that OP until you get the kinks worked out...Thanks

    Hope you don't mind another comment....

    I noticed that since you changed the background  color of the posts when you hover over it to black (which I think is working well), the white text is now a little "blinding".  I'd like to suggest a more grayer font color, maybe similar to  the "Report to Moderator" font color in the bottom right of the posts or "Personal Text" font color located near the bottom of the profile info. on the left...

    As with any of my suggestions, if you like them then great, if not, then you can just go ahead and set them right back down, no problem...

    You should now be able to modify/update posts.  I think when I updated the forums to the new version it changed some code. So basically it was looking for a a column in the sql named Checker_Time and its now named Modified_time ... so easy fix.

    Minor thing, but I noticed that whenever anybody edits a post, at the bottom where it says "last edit" it always says Dec. 31, 1969 6pm.

      The dog is the god of frolic
    A few more suggestions:

    In the profile box on left in the posts:
         1. Where it says "VIP Member" or "Global Moderator", etc., have text colored to the corresponding position (ex: VIP Member)
         2. In the Personal Text box, just have the personal text without the icon thing, green line, and the "personal text" text
         3. The .gif/image/button is not showing an image, similar to the "insert table, row, column" and "Hide Tag Special" buttons when writing a post
         4. On search for members page, change the text colors of the members name because the gray is not very visible with the white background

    I know you're quite busy and may have already noticed these things, but just in case....

    Wow,  haven't been here in many months and thought I was in the wrong place because it didn't look familiar. 

    I Like it.  Good job.  Easier for me to read white on dark backround.   Like the color scheme.
