    It's been asked with no real answer. Trophy points?

    It's an achievements system based on your various forum stats, implemented similar to The Escapist forums. Xenforo has it enabled by default, although we're not sure if we want it.

    Honestly I don't mind the layout one way or another. I think its great w1zz is taking the time to update things and I hope its for the better. With that being said if he decided to say screw it lets keep what we have, I would be ok with that to.

    A few things I would like to have clarified.

    1. Do I get to keep my infractions?
    2. Do I get an achievement for said infractions?
    3. Will the point structure be the same?
    4. PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF POT, PUDDIN AND POON-TANG NO "LIKES" BUTTON! I BEG YOU!

    Changing "Likes" back to "Thanks" is preferable. The new forums look fantastic. Changing the old logo to the new one would be awesome too. Or even change it to a genericish "Powerup!" logo and link NextPowerUp! to these forums as well.

    About the white: It is quite bright actually, but it's not that bad. A smidgeon darker (to blue or cream I don't know) would probably do the trick. It would be a tiny smidgeon. Smidgeon. Is that even a word?

    EDIT: The difference between new and old is smidgeonlike (???????) already. See attached image.

    Can we have a seperate forum section where spammers can kick back and relax and talk to each other (or advertise to each other) and test their scripts. They're real gold farming people humans too, they have rights I tell you!
    I'd love to see that conversation, then they can crap in the litter tray instead of the nice new floor :laugh:

    In all seriousness, I've been waiting for the forums to look a little less bland for a while, I like they way its laid out on the mobile version until you set it to default desktop, then it looks like somebody had too much time practicing tables in HTML.
    No Like button plz, there's a reason I come here instead of fassbook.

    remove transperancy so that text inside can be readable and tinner borders (1/2 or 1/3 of the current).
    gray notes that pop on names for subforums look good. if you can use em instead of bubbles will be nice

    Don't tell me you are going to remove the latest posts to that button?
    Add recent posts so that people can access it just like the forums now, without clicking anywhere.

    When you click on your username in the gray bar, the upper portion of the drop-down is transparent and the background shows through.

    Please put back the functionality that shows who is viewing a thread.

    Overall, I like the functionality of Xenforo a lot better.

    There is an issue with preview tool tip background - it's transparent.
    Div.xenPreviewTooltip > div.section has no background.

    Here is what I mean:

    How it's now:

    With white background:

    Should the rss icon only highlight when it's moused over? Right now it does it when I just put my cursor anywhere in the same row which gives me the feeling like I can click on it regardless of where I am, but can't actually.

    How will the TPU android app forum section work with the change? Any way to let us test that, too?
