We've got a trello board for the actual list, but this is some of the stuff on it.

Rewrite dark mode css, extension default isn't great
A few permissions fixes
Better header image
Icons for Gen Hobby/product reviews
Adjustments to url colours
Making notifications easier to see on mobile
Adding video demonstration to guide (basically most videos are displayed automatically just from the link)
Probably a load of things we haven't found yet

Forum software upgrade - phpBB have released a newer version of their software than we're running, however this is intentional. The newest release isn't as stable as the one we're running, and has bugs that are still being worked out.

Server upgrade - when I have the money spare I'll be moving us to a new hosting provider, using a custom setup that is specifically designed to work for our software. There's some back-end stuff that I can't do currently which the move will allow. Nothing you'll notice, but at some point in the future there may be brief downtime while we move.

Added icons for Harlequin and Product Reviews forums, updated Tutorials & Guides icons (Ctrl F5 or delete cache to see the updated ones)

Any others we're not fans of, or think could do with a tweak?Considering playing with Bugs next. Also wouldn't mind suggestions for Gen Hobby.

So the Ork forum definitely needs looking at - the icon isn't as pretty as I previously thought 😂

Haha I like it! Nice to see it lit up too!

I think the general hobbying one needs more attention since it doesn't light up 🤣

It needs a tweak still I think.

And it actually does! It's light for no new, darker for new. The darker colour is about the same as the light colour for the others though, so you don't notice it.
I need to sort something out for it but I've not yet had an idea that I like 😩

I think the problem is that the work in progress icon is going to kind of cross over with whatever would be appropriate for general hobby ... But maybe something like this

Or perhaps use the wip icon as the gen hobby one and something like this for wip

That's basically the problem that I've had!
Leave it with me, I'll get it eventually!

@pawl recent posts look to have dissapeared for me from the bottom of the mobile screen on the homepage.

That was intentional, but not necessarily permanent.
I use it currently to see if there is anything new since I last visited, but as we get busier it can be assumed that there will always be new posts - possibly dozens or even hundreds between visits - so it wouldn't be effective, which would mean it had almost no purpose.
Getting rid sooner rather than later just means that less people will be affected by the change.

For what it's worth if you want a quick look (rather than using the indicators next to each forum) there are links in the nav bar, under Forum.

Unread posts is just that - anything you haven't read (ever, so in time this could be a big list!)
Active topics is a list of topics that have recently been posted in
New posts shows anything posted since you were last on the site
Unanswered topics is why topic with zero replies (again, ever)


If the majority want the old display back then I'm happy to return it though. =]
