Post here if you have suggestions on how the forum might be improved! There are distinct limits on what this type of forum will allow us to change — we can't, for instance, have the chatbox make a sound whenever someone makes a post — and I myself am more of a photoshopper than a web designer, but nevertheless if there's something you'd like to see changed we can look into it and get back to you if it's something we want to happen!

I like all of the new icons; I say use them! :D

And I have a suggestion. When you're writing a post in the full editor (not the little box at the bottom of the page) or making an OP, the emoticons list can get a little... Distracting. I say it would be worth making a separate section for animated emoticons, and all other non-animated ones or frequently used one in a different section. I know for a fact this can be done (I own a forum, ISN'T THAT NEWS?) and that it's rather easy. Ping me on Steam if you want me to point you in the right direction, Delta. razz

All the icons look great, but I just can't see the Christmas banner. I assume it has something to do with my school's network proxy, which filters out images form certain hosting sites. Grumpybumpers, for one.

Oh Delta, you know the little words below your name that show your rank (Bronze Spice, Purple Spice, etc.). Well, you can change that to say whatever you want.

Whatever you want. cute

I know how to change the web Icon, and I'll tell you if you need help with that.

Buut, don't you think wishing a "Merry Christmas" is a bit generalizing? I'd think it be more appropriate to say "We wish you a happy holiday." It could just be me but I think we should also recognize that Christmas is not the only winter holiday in the world.

I spotted this in the scrolling bar at the top of the page.

Happy. Thanks for the feedback, I reckon if there are no objections I'll try out the section icons later today.

@Frostie: Just keep refreshing the page; the subtitle should change to something more universally appropriate. Joyful

The poll has been altered to account for the third option; anyone who had already voted can reassign their vote.

EDIT: Poll closed; the second set of buttons has been implemented. Happy.

Now testing out some different tessellating scan lines for the background; tell me what you think. Happy.

In response to conversations on the General Chat thread and chatbox, I've put together a sample of how we could structure a new gaming section, with Spore and Minecraft as subsections (but still readily accessible from the front page):

Thoughts? Happy.

Looks pretty good. Very organised, too.
Might I suggest, though, that the subsections be arranged vertically, rather than horizontally. This is mainly because at some point somebody is going to click on these and the images might not be loaded. Effectively it's to prevent people from clicking the wrong link when the pictures load and nudge the links over just before they click. It's happened to me loads of times, which is why I appreciate vertical things.

Just my two cents.

But those appear to be images with no text to go with them, meaning you can't even click on them until the image is loaded?

Oh, true. I didn't see that.

Well my issue is null then.
