    Love the new "at work" as a low-graphic style, there's only one thing more that would make it perfect and that would be a way to turn off the avatars ... even showing the "?" symbol would help if removing the box is impossible.

    (the old site had this feature by the way - prevent displaying avatars)

    Thanks as always for a great site, @NeoCHI

    I've changed all to white except for "Meteor Volcano Dragon". If the white really bothers you, use that theme.

    The problem is how the colors work together. I'm no expert on this but if we take google or wikipedia and what have you as examples, the websites are mostly white without any other background pictures or colors, and if there are other colors they're usually a bit darker for a better contrast.
    I feel like the grey background in posts is a bit too light w/o the darker grey around it (as the white makes is appear lighter, while before the dark grey made it appear darker). The page also loses a bit of it's structure , especially on the front page, as the different parts now all kind of blend together w/o the grey background.

    Weird. I still only see any change if I choose the Work setting. All the others look the same as they have for months to me.

    (OS X 10.11.1 & Safari 9.0.1 if that's important.)

    I think they are asking for it to be an automatic part of the "At Work" forum theme, if possible, rather than only an option that carries over to every theme.

    @NeoCHI the only reason it really bothers me is that the post boxes are a light gray but apart from that it isn't too bad and Meteor Volcano works. Thanks!

    @NeoCHI The problem isn't that people have an irrational dislike of white, it's that the contrast between gray and white was what delineated separate posts from each other and generally gave this site structure, like @bee said. When everything is so close in lightness, especially with quotes, avatar section, and background all being white, it makes you have to work that much harder to figure out what belongs with what. I'll switch to the MVD theme for now (RIP Karin), but I hope you will consider reverting this change. :tamadra:

    noticed the font changed

    i kinda think the new font looks ugly, but on the other hand i can actually see bolded text now (before there was no noticeable difference), so thanks @ neochi

    Looks like the issue with the icons not showing up above the text box for threads in the Guides section is fixed, that is a huge help, thanks!

    I like the new font.

    Can we get a new awakening icon for enhanced heart orbs? The rcv stat boost one :awakening5: kind of works, but it would be nice to have the real one.

    It's been submitted, I believe. I think it's just a matter of NeoChi finding time to add it in.

    Not sure if anyone mentioned this yet, but @NeoCHI , "at work" theme and the Shoutbox don't seem to cooperate.

    [​IMG]

    ...Or maybe it's intentionally screwed up since I'm supposedly... "at work"?
