The Dark theme option is at the very bottom left of the main page. Not too obvious, look for the small text.

There's your problem.

It works with just about every single other webpage including neogaf that has a mobile version.

Oh, it looks like there was another setting I missed. Sorry, it works now. Bottom left hand corner.

I don't know if Ivan mentioned, but the reason we upgraded was because the software was so many years out of date that our security was obsolete. We were starting to get put on malware lists, which was causing web filters to block the site. And our old skins won't function with this new version, so I had to find new skins and manually tweak them. 

 

I think the new dark theme is pretty good, though. And we get the mobile version now, so it's not a bad trade. Not that we had much of a choice anyway.

I've wanted to upgrade for a while now anyway for better control and more settings which we'll tweak over time. The main thing I wanted though was the mobile skin.

No it doesn't. You just think it does, DUAL.

 

 

 

Also, props to Ivan and Cocop for taking the time to deal with upgrade bullshittery. I doubt making the transition was all sunshine and butterflies.

Actually, everyone should thank Major Hayes. Not only did he do all the migration and installation, but he's migrated it over to his virtual server and is now hosting the site. The forum is totally migrated, up next is the blog.

 

We've been planning it for a while, but it's one of those things that's easy to put on the back burner and delay over and over again. Once the site was blacklisted by IronPort (one of the most used corp web fitlers) and I couldn't get it at work, that's when we were told that it's because our software was horribly out of date and comprised with malware. Think of it like running Windows XP with not MS updates. Anyway, that was the kick in the ass I needed to move things along and Major Hayes proceeded to drop everything and help us do this.

Seriously though. I'm on my phone right now switching back and forth to multiple sites, and this one does not show up with the mobile version.

Has anyone noticed any technical problems with the site, like pages not loading or actions not working (like posting attachments)?

 

As soon as we've verified that everything is technically working, even if not up to your high standards, I'll start working with the guys on getting the blog moved over.

I gave out some pretty nonsensical warnings back in the day. I'd say warn level is not particularly reflective of anything other than how long we've had to put up with each other.

Edit: Also, thanks Hayes! Every post I've made this morning has been from iAJ. Awesome.

I haven't checked the registration list in a long time, but as I recall we were getting about 50-100 fake registrations a day.  Too lazy to look, but does this upgrade target that problem?  I don't know if the two are related in any way.

 

And thanks, Dark is so much better.

Props to Hayes. Fuck Ivan and Cocop. Everyone is awesome.

 

 

And it shouldn't come to anyone's surprise that I'm trying to get Blaze and Nightshade banned.

Perfect timing.  It's at this time I'd like to announce that Shadow of Intent forums will be launching the new update as well!  So fuck you!

I think it only shows warning posts to admins and yourself; it tells me I have one warning post, also from Cocop. I smell a conspiracy here, Nightshade.
 
Anyway, I don't see the dark theme option in the lower left of the page that you guys are talking about.


The heck were you guys posting that you have multiple warnings and I have none? Think about that.

Can you list the exact steps you're doing? Are you trying to upload something from your computer or link to a URL?

Dark theme is much less eye-rapey.
