    Hey everyone,

    This is just a quick announcement to let you know that we updated our site design. The old one was a bit outdated, so we've freshened the website up with a whole new look. Take a look around the website and give us feedback, because we will be altering the site based on the comments received.

    Thanks!

    I like the new design, however I think that one of the main colours (Green) should be changed to orange, to match CPK's channel color theme. I think it would fit with the new logo, as it has more colours then before. :p

    Suggestions:
    • The little up/down arrow button that used to be in the corner is gone, and I used that a lot to jump quickly from place to place. Adding it back would be useful!
    • The tab with the notifications and the conversation stuff etc. at the top is a little small, maybe make it a little bigger, and maybe put it under the "home vote etc." tab
    • Make the mark all read more easily accessible
    • Where is the members tab/is it removed?
    • On profile pages, I liked seeing their profile picture on the front page along with their name and statuses
    • I liked the "home forums vote" tab right above the forums thing, it's very high now and clashes too much with the notifications bar, maybe move it down to where it used to be?
    • Add back the "members you follow" place

    This is a suggestion I would really like feedback on~
    In the preferences tab, where it asks you the format and such and your preferences, maybe add another option there. Right now it says "Default" and "Squishycraft" but maybe you could add another tab like "Old forums" or something, to people who prefer the old one and find this one too confusing/too much for their eyes. I've already heard people saying that the font is too small/the style makes their eyes strain, and if there's an option for old forums then everyone will be happy.

    Like it a lot! But agree w Narnie's suggestion. Also I think the post message button should go back to square or make it a deeper shade of green and grey. Also put back the button for the side menu. I've been on the new website for like 5 min and already acidently made the side menu pop up like 10 times. (Or is this just the version of it on on?)

    This is fancy;

    It would be cool if we could do what Cal said, I feel like orange would be more appropriate.

    I have a suggestion, may not be much but it would be neat to have

    Adding more ranks (Member, Well-Known Member etc.)
    It would make the forums more..."lively" so it has more of a purpose to go on, as most of us are getting close to the end rank

    oooh~
    I like it! But it's a little weird how it says "Senior Moderator" or "Moderator" under the name twice... Maybe only have it under "Staff Member", just like it is now.

    Also on the mobile the "Post Reply" and other buttons don't really fit in. I'm pretty sure that this is just a small glitch. Also, the "IP" and "Shop" buttons are covering the logo- note this is on a phone. Also users have reported being able to create longer signatures. Also, the search bar looks missing on mobile.

    Great Job!
    - Change Colour or Snr Mod to a light blue or a brighter colour and alternate the ratings colour when clicking on the profile because it’s really hard to see
