It was an old currency system we had in place here on Lewd. It used Pirata Nervo's (or whatever the fuck his name is) NewPoints system.

I'll be honest, I don't like the new theme so much. Compared to our current theme I'd go with this theme any day, and this is probably my favourite mybb theme ever. But anyway to leave you with some useful critique as why I think as I do. The new theme feels soo kind of modern style, okay I understand that. But everything it so fat, the elements is thick and fat. They're kind of bold, with a lot of padding. It's distracting too me, and sidebar content distracts me even more from the content I'm trying to find. Compared to all other elements with a lot of padding and "fatness" the forum display and content seems small.

I'm very neutral on this, I don't hate it and I can get used too it. I will wait until further drafts until I can official say what I think. But as for now, I prefer the current theme. I would prefer as Saikou, to maybe have an option to use the older theme.

About the color scheme, I guess that's alright. I have a bad design sense, to whatever goes is fine with me. And here's some useful suggestions if you're intereted :) You mentioned something about improving the levels algorithm! I have suggestion you might be able to meassure quality too and not just quanity. A theory but you can count the ammount of times your posts have been loved, a love level. But this is irrellevent, because you can have 10000 posts and just 100 loves no your posts. So to actually meassure it, you can do a love/like ratio on your posts if you divide ammount of posts and ammount of love. That way you can in a better way kind of meassure kudos/karma or whatever it can be called. (It's just something I've thought about before, to encourage posts with likes and hopefully quality posts. Not that quality really is a problem here).  You could probably include that in higher levels to improve the difficulty by not just looking at the ammount of posts/threads.

Anyway, that's my thoughts. My critique and my suggestions. Sorry for hijacking thread, please carry on.

I'm somewhat not feeling the new theme either; I have considered just remaking this theme so that it's more lightweight and consistent with its elements.

Maybe merging some of the flat design with this theme, would look a little better.

Measuring quality based on the loves seems fairly inaccurate; considering a lot of the "loved" posts are generally shitposts that the "lover" found funny. I've considered making it so that the post count + thread count is based on posts above a certain amount of characters.

No need to apologise for posting your thoughts; everyone's opinions are always welcome here, even when they're negative.

I agree with what @Yuu said, except for what he said for the colors. I love the new colors.

In reality, all he's doing is pushing the same buttons he always has, nothing has changed. The longer he spends here, the more invested he gets, the more he forgets which life is the real one.

I personally think a more vibrant color scheme would suit the overall forum 'theme' better.

Dark grey/red/white is a little too overused and doesn't work that well with anime/managa.

I've decided that I will be finishing this theme. I've got an idea in my head as to how I can make the middle section look nice.

Do you think it would be possible to make the red text color user customizable? Like if I wanted to make the red bits a deep purple or something rather than red. That'd be neat.

I'm not entirely sure; when I work on a theme, I generally do it in my own way, for instance, this theme is using none of the default mybb templates, nor using the stylesheet system.

It's fantastic!
Although I'm pretty sure half of those threads were posted by different authors.

I might actually change it to newfriend, newfag probably isn't very welcoming.

> It looks really nice so far, I like it.

thanks, when i'm done with it, it'll be sexier than the current theme c:



The only issue I can see arising is that with the new theme, I'll have to disable a plugin that the current theme relies on; so the current theme will not be available for some time.

I changed the default colour to a pink-ish colour.

Are any changes going to be made to our favicon? Or will it just stay the same?

I don't see any reason to change it.
