    Hello,

    I just found out that your emails are going away.  I wish I knew as I have a lot of email setup at that mmorpg.com
    address  and often to change it you need to be able to access the original email address do that.  Will there be a temporary access period for the old emails?  Can a forwarding address get setup @Meddle

    From the dark-theme home page (except the space behind the ads has unfortunately remained white), which says "Guest" in the upper right as if I am not logged in, pressing the community button opens a new tab (?) and the forums aren't dark-themed (??) and I'm logged in (???)

    Also, when looking at a forum page, the drop-down notifications are half off the right side of the screen.

    Not technically a bug, but, I'm sad that the post edited notice is still an eye-searing red instead of a nice grey or purple, and there's still no disagree button.  Really happy to have the forums back up though.
    I want to help design and develop a PvE-focused, solo-friendly, sandpark MMO which combines crafting, monster hunting, and story.  So PM me if you are starting one.

    Can I change the background color?  I'd prefer something a little darker.

    Not on the forums YET, but yes on the home page. See circle at top left of header.

    Apparently there is nothing they can do.

    On the profile page, things are getting stepped on.  The links for posts/discussions are mixed in with the badges.

    My time looking at the forums will be much less without it having a dark background.

    Good. Thought someone said there was nothing that could, which I took for would, be done.

    If you guys are considering it...  I'd vote for the darker homepage to be default.  The white does seem a little bright, and I feel that new folks, in general, would probably be more receptive of the darker theme.  That's just my gut feeling, though.

    Btw, thanks for all the hard work you guys put in!  I really do enjoy the fresh layout.

    I know it keeps being said but the white is not good.  Needs to be darker.

    Generally I think that I like the changes (or at least I don't hate them), but two things I noticed: the banner on the front page is really annoying, covering a third of the total height of the page (res. 1366x768). That alone would probably discourage me from checking the main page regularly. Also the "top voted" games don't appear on the main page anymore. =/ 

    edit: well now the old website is back o.o

    Looks bad. But, hey, since when have opinions ever mattered?

    The homepage is still showing up in the old format for me. I've deleted my web cache, and that fixed the forums (which were messed up) but the homepage is still the same.
    And this leave a comment field is showing up as white text on a white field . . .

    This editor is white with white letters on it for me :(

    Aside from that, I had the new frontpage earlier today (and was slow like hell), but now it's back to the old frontpage again.

    I think they may have turned the old one back on because of a bug or too update the new one.. who knows.. Might be a cacheing issues on a server or something.
