I've seen earlier today that the Forum team has been hard at work in the machine room.
Kudos to the admins, the info page made me smile  ;D

Also, the new Psychedelic theme looks fantastic!

Someone over on the Discord mentioned the 'Eve of Construction'  :D

New theme looks great! Looks very sleek, I like it.
Use imagination as a destination.

I'm trying #4, but what should i take?

no idea, no idea

K, the new forum look is really good, really nice surprise!
Where do I start?
Where do I begin?

i like the new rules <3

seeing the new look on mobile is quite wonderful ! ;D
is it chemically derived?

looks really nice !  ;D
I won't back down, give me my thunder.

Oh good point. Looks a lot more phone-friendly than before.
I also notice that YouTube shorts now embed automatically. That's new.

However as I type this post whilst using the quote function, I notice that clicking the quote button has sent me down to the bottom of the page to "Quick Reply" Is that meant to happen?

I'm also not sure about the automatic centring of YouTube embeds. Looking at sone of my posts in Now Playing, where I've typed the artist/title, it's set to the left of the page but then the YT clip is centred, so they look out of whack.

Re: the smileys under our avatar, are they based on post numbers, or thanks or something else? Oh wait, they're not smileys they're yellow C's for Chems?

PS I don't believe those new rules are actually new, I think Y'all just didn't read 'em before.
Yea though I walk through the valley and shadow of death
every day of my life,
I fear no evil for The Lord is with me.

One more question, beacause it is not really explained in the rules: what if i put my hands to the side and shake my body like a salmon floating upstream?
no idea, no idea

Thank you all for your feedback. Glad you like it so far. It's been the first time ever I've done this coding stuff, so hopefuily I didn't botch up too much and everything is going as smoothly as possible.

Yes, this is intentional, I believe, as Simple Machines Forum (SMF) apparently decided that in their newest update the quick reply is now an always-there feature (formerly was collapsible).

Yeah, this one's on me (same for tweets and instagram posts). I thought it was nicer to have it centered automatically and I noticed that Pumisher is doing that every time so I wanted to spare him the effort. But I can reverse it if that's wanted, no problem.

These are the normal "badges" you get when reaching a certain amount of posts, just like on the pervious version. While I was experimenting with the new vector graphic svg-format that I used throughout the forum (instead of the pixelated old png images) I had this I idea to maybe give them a sort of individual touch. But if you think this looks too silly, I certainly can go back to regular uni-color images.

Haha, yes, these have been the rules for like forever (although I must admit, I hadn't read them either or forgot about them). Just touched up the formatting a little. WhiteNoise should get all the credit for it, I believe.

Don't you remember the infamous, criminally acting member who "accidentally" banned all gmail members (including himself) not too long ago?

good job on the new theme guys, the front page looks phenomenal.  ;D

also the guidelines recommendations gave me a good chuckle

I'm sure some bots were reigned in, can't blame that guy for overcorrecting *a little bit*.
