Not really liking the new layout all that much. All that stuff at the top (the logo, my avatar, the messages I have enc) are all either covered up by the season pass advertisement or squished by the ad.

At least that's what it looks like on my phone. And I miss the old color scheme that matched the rest of the site. Too sharp a contrast for me personally, although from what I've heard about the old site, it did look similar to this and seeing as it's your tenth anniversary of getting started, I can see why you'd want to give a little call-back to your early years.

However, I would like an option that some other forums have where you can change the layout to different styles and themes or at least switch back to the old one if I want to.

Jafar!!!!!!!! Hi hi! :D

- Wishing I'd had more than 4 hours sleep. Hoping my dad recovers quickly from his fall. :(

- Not sure about the new layout either, but since the old one was such a change from what I was used to I will probably get used to this change as well. XD

Fear not! The forum updates are still in-progress. :) We had a lot to update, etc, so our IT folks have been doing it in stages.

Welcome back, Zelly :)

Ah. Was wondering about that... well, then, I eagerly await the new layout, etc. :yes: :)

Yep, we're still transitioning for now. It look much better once the IT people are done with it. We have some cool new things planned for you all!

What about the color scheme? I still think it's weird that we have the actual website with darker colors like black and grey, but the forums are white and light blue.

Also, there's no more rank colors in our names!

It was a nightmare just to preserve the header/footer/side thingies, lol. Everything at this point should be a matter of tweaking the stylesheet! I just wanted to give Say a base to work off of.

I was up until 7am helping with the forum upgrade.... so tired... :zzz:

What's a stylesheet?

- needs a new screen protector thingie for iPhone. The one I've had since I got the phone isn't very clean (or that could be the phone itself) and when I took it off and put it back on again, I had even more air bubbles on it than last time!

*looks at forum and nods satisfied* That's MUCH better!

...And yes, I did shrink my avatar a bit. Turns out that was the reason why I couldn't see the "Show Unread Posts/New Replies To Your Posts/You have 89 Messages, 0 Are New" thingie.

Hmm... maybe just a little more...

I love that we get to do this but I hate how this has became 'the CSS from hell' experience.

...When did Queene Deloria become a Moderator?!

-Decided to name my Piplup Johnny after John Westland from Code Name: ICEMAN.

Pokemon Diamond team:

Johnny (Piplup, John Westland from Code Name: ICEMAN)

Gabriel (Shinx, Gabriel Knight from Gabriel Knight 1-3)

Laura (Budew, Laura Bow 1-2)

Hero (Houndour, Quest for Glory 1-5)

Dr. Brain (Abra, Doctor Brain 1-4)

and an undecided sixth member. Any good ideas?

-Don't you hate when this happens? You're writing a story, and the words just aren't coming to you! You KNOW what you want to say, but not how exactly to say.

In other news... this guy is awesome! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60m0hskBuPQ

- Just finished re-reading the "Theories on what is to come!" thread, and... to be honest I probably shouldn't have done that (haha BEN reference whatever) because it makes me anxious.

Especially Damar's Theories. Dang it, Damar! I don't WANT Graham to sacrifice himself! He deserves to live out his days in peace, with his family by his side, not as an eternal guardian where he can never be with them again!

POS! Release episode 5 soon, PLEASE! The suspense is killing me!!!

Just recently, I believe. Stika, too!

*fixed Zelly's signature to link to Deloria's "threade" instead of some Russian computer site (www.kqix.com)* :)

- Just realized something slightly horrifying about my QFG fanfic. Look at this paragraph:

Seeing his chance, Marcus struck Shamgar horizontally across, slicing the Saurusí throat! The Saurus tried to manage a roar, but all that came was a gurgle and blood seeping from its mouth. Before the spark in its eyes died out completely, it managed to slice at Marcus, cutting him again deeper in the stomach, and then collapsed on the ground dead.

I'm not a biologist of any sort, and I might be getting this completely wrong, but... wouldn't the claws slicing there imply that he's been disemboweled?!

Of course, I could be wrong and this would cease to be horrifying and just go back just generally "Ow."

I'm pretty sure that's cause for disembowelment, yes. ;)
