a nice skin would be nice, and basically anything that would make the forum look less like it was just created this afternoon. also, are signatures disabled?

Sigs should be enabled now. I'll look into some themes/skins and post a few options

A couple that I saw: 

https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/7307-black-chrome/

https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/7283-simple-blue/

https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/7306-blueboh/

https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/7463-fblook/ <-- This would be an alt if people think it would be worth while idk

https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/7423-shades-dark/

https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/7517-skin-meebe/ 

Full list:

 https://community.invisionpower.com/files/category/162-themes/

I'll design some options for a header once we seem to have a favorite theme as well as an icon that shows up when we're viewing the site (will probably just be the image from our flag scaled down).

Stopwatch looks like it may be useful.

https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/7621-simple-countdown-widget/

and this is a menu thing if it does get cluttered but i dont think we need it.

https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/7272-easy-menu/

 

I'll keep the menu thing in mind, I don't think we need a Stopwatch right now but it may be useful for counting down to a DoW time or something ~

Here's some other things I found that I'd like some feedback on:

https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/7451-sidebar-poll/ <-- could be used for Poll of the Days

https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/7413-redirect-forum-on-new-tab/ <-- will have a link that will redirect to P&W in a new tab. I can do a redirect link, but it'll take you away from the forums.

https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/7535-total-time-spent-online/ <-- total time online

https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/7296-online-indicator/ <-- Online indicator

https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/5955-if-ipb-shoutbox/ <-- Shoutout box

https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/5174-simple-tag-management/ <-- tags topics

Updated the forums, added the sidebar poll (will use it for Poll of the days after the current poll) and the online indicator (you should see a green box next to anyone who is online). I'll add the other one's if anyone wants me to add them. I would still appreciate feedback on the different skins/themes though!

If we move to orange then Black/Orange, but you know why I would say that. 

 

Still the prettiest forums IMHO.

Sigs should already be added (go to account settings, and it should be under the tab on the far right). Pips are currently up there on my priority list (I just need to add text and make they look decent), in a perfect world they'll be done by Sunday, but no promises.

Should have found a way to contract that out to Salka~

I can't figure out how to allow non-admins to change their theme, so I'm going to set the default as a different theme each day and let you guys decide which one to go with. 

The options:

Current theme/default

Simple Blue (Today)

Black Chrome (Monday)

Meebee (Tuesday, basically default but black/white instead of blue/white)

And if people feel very strongly against a particular theme, just post in this topic (if I get enough negative feedback, I'll just move onto the next theme)

Something tells me i will like the black themes - great idea btw. I just wish there was a way you could fix the reply box so i can post images from my phone, and i also experienced some of the freezing issues (not a big deal) that Marcus mentioned.

I've run into the freezing issue as well when I've been on my University's internet, I'll see if there's anything on the support forums about it. 

 

As for mobile, you should be able to insert images by selecting the insert other media option in the bottom right of the reply box (right above the submit reply option). That test post was on my phone with a normal mask, so it works :P

I also added unique member titles based on your post count. You can change them to custom titles after 500 posts (might lower this to 250 idk). The titles I added are based on the book series and there are 16 unique titles at various post counts up to 10000 (I don't expect anyone to ever get there lol).

Sounds like a challenge. I am still the head of the späm chapter back in TOP. On my best days 400-500 posts per day weren't a problem. :P
