New Themes, Paypal Payments, and A Gold-Exclusive Surprise

Nitty_Grimes

Made a crappy phPBB forum once ... once.
We continue to tweak various aspects of the new themes - thanks everyone for your feedback.
  • There is now a small line separating sticky posts from non-sticky posts
  • The footer colors for light and dark themes have been swapped
  • Banned users will now show as banned in the thread list
  • A bug was fixed that caused banned users to appear as unbanned
  • A bug was fixed that caused the homepage icons to now show correctly
We are still investigating the following issues and are actively working to resolve them as soon as possible:
  • An issue exists where if stylized text is highlighted in the reply box, the highlighted color is incorrect and inconsistent
  • NeoGAF Gold members are seeing the default site logo, rather than the gold logo
  • Some larger advertisements are incorrectly covering elements on the page
  • Background covers are not showing on some users tooltips
  • Users with resolution set lower than 340 horizontal pixels are experiencing issues with the site navigation / page width scaling
You know you should have mentioned stability. Just for shits and giggles.
 

Rest

All these years later I still chuckle at what a fucking moron that guy is.
Is there no way to ignore a thread from the forum page any more? Clicking into the thread is a bit of extra work.

Would it be better to not have the support options (Patreon, Gold, Merch) at the bottom of an optional menu tab? Maybe have it on the side of the front page, just so more people are made aware/see it.

Just a heads up.

Most of the ads clip the headlines in threads now. Not sure why.

Would be nice if this can be fixed.

New dark theme is definitely a great addition but I'm gonna be honest, I'm not a fan that everything is aligned on the left.
It feels very unnatural to read on my monitor with so much empty space in the middle.



Maybe I need to get used to it but an option to stick back the navigation menu on the left and recenter the threads would be great.
To address this issue, there is now an option to make GAF fixed-width.



If you load the site in desktop mode, you'll see the "Change layout" option in the footer next to the button to change themes. You can use this to toggle between full screen or fixed width mode.

This value is stored in a site cookie 🍪, so it'll be specific to a single device (rather than an account setting that would change your layout on every device you're logged into).

As always, thank you for your feedback and continued support.
