Things seems to be getting ironed out, which is nice! (Y)

I don't see a Return To Top button anymore. Is there no way to jump back up to the top of a topic once you've made it to the bottom? I used that feature constantly.

Yes, but those are only the people participating in a specific topic.

EDIT: forget it. It seems to be working as intended, just a bit slow.

Question to those who keep saying the current theme is too bright: How are you able to read books or news papers? They're printed in black on white...

Different mediums with different technical considerations. I've forwarded this comment to my user interface group for great amusement.

I'll have to agree with you on that... print isn't backlit. :p

books and newspapers don't tend to have their own light source or be printed on blindingly white paper.

It's nice to see that the member join date has returned below the avatar pics. Would it be possible to drop it down below the post count so it doesn't wrap?

Might aswell use this topic. Does no one ever open the error console? Comment on the front page has been broken for a while now.

Overlooked or ignored?

A newspaper is very soft on the eyes because it’s not backlit. I’m usually reading one every day when I take the subway :p

But then again, 1. they’re not backlit and 2. they have a bunch of colors and pictures.

As I said, this theme 1. is too bland 2. is too large on big monitors because it works with % and 3. doesn’t have any picture, only rectangles with text in them.

Some newspapers have color -- look at USA Today.

It's waaaaaay too bright and light. There's no contrast and it all just blurs together as one big block of white. It honestly hurts my eyes after a while.

The mobile theme needs one major missing item: ability to go to most recent post in a topic. FFS, I was checking out the BF3 thread on my iPhone earlier and you end up having to tap on the damn 'next page arrow' 30 times to get to the end. Screw that.

And there is just so much white space now on the main forums - lots of wasted space. My eyes get tired just from trying to seperate actual replies from the rest of the page. Come on, neowin can do better than this.

There seems to be a bit of a conflict on the "Change Display Name" page...

The name can only contain these characters: a-zA-Z0-9' '

and the following:

This is the display name you wish to now use. Characters not permitted: [ ] | , ; $

The second line implies there are certain special characters which are permitted but when trying to use any of them, I get the error in red.

So which one is right?

The "not" is quite important ;)

Submitted to IPS earlier today: http://community.inv...r-or-jump-menu/

_DP I Allowed _ in usernames as well as a-zA-Z0-9

We restricted it a while back, because the member tools didn't support searching special characters.
