I do like the "like" button though.
Dark theme for the new skin coming up and I like that you like the like.

Might not be perfect but I appreciate the [email protected]
@peterbilt - thanks for the feedback!

More changes and tweaks to come.

Webforum hack advice,

Click "home" button on keyboard when at the bottom of the thread and it will bring you to the top of the page instead of scrolling.

I am also don't like that the text boxes are so much bigger with the new version. I have to scroll that much more.
Should be resolved now.

Not a fan of change when something is working fine on it's own but this isn't too bad. Sure like the dark version better than the white.

Too much wasted space by the pictures and names. You have to scroll down too much to read the posts. Why was the change needed? Why didn't the old site layout get copied for the new one. Way too bright don't like it.
