    I announced the forum opening on Fuwanovel and they had some comments to share. In particular:

    It's not about being ugly (only @OutoftheBox said that). It's about actually feeling physically unwell when watching it. I admit I'm more sensitive to light than the average person (particularly flashing lights), but still that page affects me negatively physically, which is fairly rare for a static homepage. I can't even remember experiencing that happening before.

    Might want to consider a "dark" theme to avoid irritating visually-sensitive users. The bright white post background is the likely culprit.

    Thanks, I sent a few snippets to the dev chat in case we want to change a tone or something..

    The theme is fine, but if it really bothers some people that much then you should add a option to choose between this one and a darker one.
    But if you ask me I wouldn't pay too much attention to what Fuwans says.

    I would suggest a dark blue one and with much less white to it, but i'm not sure how to make it look like that.

    Of course we can change the colors, but I don't think black on white is unusual or sight destroying (make a dark theme and people will want a light theme, etc) and much of the internet is black on white. We might play around with getting a plugin to allow themes later, on but I think there are other features that should take priority.

    At least three people reported that they were unable to login to these forums (they received the error "Permission denied").

    This issue could be explain why this forum is so dead; old members aren't able to log in.

    More complaints in the same thread specifically about the blue. Same complaint: it causes them physical distress. You might want consider a neutral background or much darker blues if you're going to use a solid blue background.

    Permission denied error should be fixed (it was a permissions problem with 'imported' users, but should be working now)

    I'm still getting the same error on my old account Seryuu. Also Tim can you check your PMs since I have something important to talk about with you guys ?

    About the colors, it's an interesting issue yet one we will look into.

    About the login issue @Aldra can you check again?

    Upon looking at the database tables, I found the permissions issue with migrated users and fixed it. @Aldra and other users should be able to login as normal.

    Tweaked the theme to be slightly darker and to use non-true whites for text boxes.

    Just checked and it works now, thanks.

    The users that reported physical discomfort from the old layout have said the color shift is a definite improvement.

    It'd be nice if 'Likes' (and perhaps 'Slaps'?) gave a notification to the user by default (identical to the way quotes currently do). The purpose of the 'Like' feature is positive reinforcement, and that isn't served if there isn't a component of instant gratification to it. This suggestion would rectify that, and it's currently how the feature is implemented on Fuwanovel.

    Speaking of Likes, I've been curious about how the "like" feature works here (which is part of the system along with "Nice Boats" and "slaps" it appears). It doesn't look like it is possible for regular members to "like" the posts of others as it is on other Forums, and seems to be a feature only Forum Staff here may use from what I understand.

    Oh dear, that's not how it's supposed to work.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention, I'm looking into it.

    Fixed! @Aurora3500 you should be able to go to town now. Let me know if you have any further issues.
