The fade was blocking off the background image completely on my shitty display, now I can see the edges! lol

I can zoom out like Pai said to see more though if I want.

I think the new forum looks pretty good, no complaints about the color scheme. I love that the banner now changes, but I kind of miss having our logo up there, I like the one Nana made. Maybe add it to those pictures? As Iept said, I like all the hard edges, old forum had too many rounded edges. The posts themselves look great, only thing I'm not really a fan of is the buttons (quote, edit, etc), the text is way too small. One other thing I'm not really a fan of is the forum icons (New, Read), they're kind of hard to differentiate and they look kind of boring. Also, as Noble said, I don't really care for these side pictures, they kind of stand out too much.

layout looks good, not really a fan of the picture on the right.

love the shifting banner, but showing the anime faction logo/text on the corner that doesn't shift with the picture would be good. Because mostly people expect the title of the forum to be on the horizontal top.

not a big fan of the button colors.

also I think Iept said this but the grey blocks on the sides are kind of distracting and.

love the black area of the middle though.

and the faded "mod" texts on the side for people.

EDIT: I also see that neither the anime faction banner on the right or the picture at the top links you back to home. Minor annoyance but still an annoyance.

There will be a banner template later on for people to make banners, i just have to come up with one first.

The grey in the post body ?

I hate hyperlinking stuff on the sides, i always accidentally click on them, lol.
I think it might be possible to hyperlink the banners for home but you have a conveniently 'Home' button on the index :P

Is it possible to have the post buttons only appear when hovering over a post?

i have to hold ctrl and scroll down with the mouse wheel 2 clicks so i can make it look like that, and 1 click so i can fully see the chick on the right

another thing is that when im on reply post or edit post mode and im using the arrow keys to edit words and such, hitting left or right arrow key changes the top banner pic thing and the left and right arrow keys dont work for moving the I-beam left or right when editing posts (not a huge problem its just annoying cause i use the arrow keys a lot)

wtf, i was wondering why that thing was so slow, i also use the arrows keys most of the time since both my hands are on the keyboard.
Im going to disable user control on the banner and see if it doesn't mess our I-beam anymore.

and the background is meant to be visible at 1920x1080 or higher, anything lower than that will start cutting off the background bit by bit.

edit:

fixed.
it was using keyboard control

I was thinking of switch up the Main forum icons with the topic icons.
The small round items in the topic sections look weird to me when there's a lot of topics.

If i made them the same size as the ones at the index it would probably look better too.

This with this

what does everyone think ?

^ I just think that one needs work, they're king of hard to differentiate at a glance between that one and the NEW one. I think the [...] one needs to be darker or something, right now they're too similar in color.

But I don't mind the idea of switching the icons, as long as you make the round one bigger.

I like the sharp edges of the main forum.
I dont like the c4d you used on the edges though. Maybe you could try fading out the edges of the bg image like before and with some kind of texture? Just my opinion.

Is there a way to let users choose between preset color schemes?

The edges of the background image ? I can try and blur it and see how it looks.
I tried looking for theme selection option and found nothing, even on the forums but nothing.

After you expand the sidebar, refresh the page and it should start working. It won't work if you've had the sidebar hidden.
