Is there a way for an user to change the black/blue design? It's a bit 'heavy' to my eyes...

Hi Vector,

I'll be adjusting it few % but at this stage the contrasted style is the only one available. I will be making a Classic Grey/Grey Blue style as soon as I can. :)

Thank you Demorte :)

Few more subtle tweaks, non-essentials, and we'll be golden, well.. Blue ;)

So will you guys be releasing additional themes for us to pick as we wish?

Themes based upon some of the major septs would be kinda cool.

Best answer I can give on Sept themes would be based on how long a "Classic ATT" conversion will take. This will give me an idea of the time investment required in selectable styles :)

Nice!

Another suggestion: some kind of like/exalt (from Dakka Dakka) for useful/informative posts!

Ah yah - good idea - we've been using our "Markerlight" system for so long it is The Way of Things on ATT. I'll look into a Mod for the community to pick up the torch also :)

So is post count going to be a visible thing from now on?

Appears an embedded feature of 3.1 - I'd like to remove it personally. I'll chat to Pshar'Rifles for any insight as to how to go about it.

Was amsuing to see I've posted 5000 times - thats 500 posts per year of the forum essentially. :D

The thought behind it is that we don't judge you by your post count, that we judge you by the quality of posts that you make. I had no idea that I have over 1,000 posts here, kinda shocked.

I'd rather the post count be hidden... For the old school reasons of it can encourages people to spam post and others to view people with a higher count as more knowledgeable or some how senior(regardless of rank).

This is my feeling too Darklighter. That said, it has been amusing discovery for me.

My initial reading makes for some effort to shut it down. I'll await Pshar'Rifles' input.

I can look into hiding that, for sure.

I've been a little busy with work the last few days, and while I've made an effort to keep up, I may have missed if this was intentional.

Anyway, I'm getting a ton of notifications. I'm not quite convinced that I'm being notified of EVERY new post on the orbital, but I've got 26 thread notifications, some for threads I've never even viewed, and all in the last three days. I haven't altered a single setting since the update, and before that I was only subscribed to one or two currently-dead threads. I think it's a side effect of being part of the "Shas" group, but I'm not certain.

I kinda like it, but I'm a little worried about actually being able to see things I definitely want to notified about hidden in a sea of chaff. Just curious about what kinda witchcraft is at work, here.

I think you get notifications for threads you have subscribed.

... Is there an auto-subscribe feature that I've overlooked? For the record, I'm completely willing to accept that the possibility that I'm just an idiot. It wouldn't be the first time.
