I honestly love that theme, it reminds me of the 80s. Says someone who was born in 87 and has no idea how the 80s actually were. My point is, it makes me feel nostalgic and happy.

Edit: Great, now I changed back and I already miss the colors.

This is exactly what the command-line-based BBSs that I hung out in in the mid-90's used to look like...

I'm in love.

Xenforo is strictly bring-your-own-puppy. Should've considered that when voting on which one to use!

The neon theme doesn't add sunglasses to our avatars. Feh.

Seriously, though, do we have ways to create polls? I haven't find how if so.

EDIT: Nevermind, found it. This is how my parents must have felt when they had to learn to use that VCR thingamabob.

Is it possible to add the Prev / Next page buttons to the top of the page? This isn’t a big problem, but I noticed that I had to scroll down to the bottom to change pages, and it would be nice if those buttons were at the top as well.

I'm one of the apparently few people who never really had problems with the search features on the old site, but ya'll spent months telling me how much better the search was going to be in the new world. The very first search I tried here was a search that worked on the old forums but doesn't work here. It won't search for "first" because it is either too common or too short. It won't tell me which because it refuses to disambiguate.

Is is just me or does the new text entry box not have things like ctrl+i for italics?

(may just be me, been going back and forth on a mac for work and it’s killing my muscle memory)

It does, and it actually works in my browser, unlike 2.0, which, IIRC, worked for some but never for me.

Check both cmd and ctrl + letters on your mac. CTRL works for me in FF on windows, but I can't check my mac atm. I mean I could but theoretically I'm "working", so I won't 8)

Is there a way to add fonts to the font list? I would like to include an obnoxiously script-y font that I can use for sarcastic embelleshment a la the pooh meme:

There is not an obvious way to add fonts to the font list, but the tag does take arbitrary fonts. Whether they display correctly will be system-dependent, though.
 
This isn't a request, but rather a message of appreciation: whoever came up with the FFT Talking Time banner that shows up at the top sometimes, that was an awesome idea and I salute you wholeheartedly. I also love that I can immediately tell the spell should be Haste.

Though I think I might have preferred "Time has come...crash down on the wicked! Talking Time!"

That's interesting and good to know
 
Is there an easy plugin you guys can enable that will make embedding webms easy? The new insert media button is really nifty and is a lot more dynamic than the previous forum's youtube or bust buttons. But it won't mess with anything that doesn't come from any of the list of pre-approved video sites. That's been my one wish since TT2.0.

Try posting the video URL on a line by itself and seeing what it does?

Ironically enough, I did add a video tag to the old forums, but nobody ever used it.

Does this work?

Edit: nope, it just does this

I remember! I gave it an honest try several times, but either I am just too stupid to get it work or it was too unwieldy.
