Thanks Claire. Looks great and much more comfortable for my eyes once I realised that to enable it, I had to set Windows 10 to dark mode too.

The only thing I would prefer changed is to increase the font size for quoted text, as currently, it is too small for me to read comfortably.

I don't think I changed that but it was a bit small so gave it a little bump.

Hi Claire, I'm really liking the colours and format of the desktop version. I'm having some usability issues when viewing on a mobile and not requesting the desktop site. I struggled to find the "unread posts" link initially and still can't see a "new replies" one. I always access the site from the .com landing page and not having the links there is a bit of an issue for me. I've also noticed that the "unread posts" page is not formatted correctly in mobile mode, the column for user is about twice as wide as the column for the thread title (leading to lots of wrapping).

95% of my browsing is using Chrome on a Samsung S20 Ultra.

One thing I've noticed with the mobile site is that when a Youtube video has been embedded - and this might be dependent on the resolution of the embedded video - it stretches off the screen to the right, along with any text in that post and you are unable to scroll over to the right to read the text that is off screen.

I wish I had taken a screenshot when I noticed it, will do next time.

Hi Claire,

Could I also be enabled for dark mode?

ALSO: Could I be enabled for the mobile version of RAWK? I mostly use my phone to interact with fellow Reds on here.

Thanks!

Thanks

I've made a trello board with most of the things I could remember from these threads - https://trello.com/b/yFKah054/rawk

If there's something that's not on there that needs looking at, then let me know. I don't think anyone can add or move stuff but you should be able to view the board.

Should be a fix for the youtube embeds and I've changed the background of the stickied threads on dark, may need tweaking in light as well but will have a look tomorrow.

Few people said images were a bit squiffy, can you point me at an example?

Claire, did you make changes to the 'new' icons?  They look a little different for me on my mobile view, but I can see them fine.  However, on my desktop view, they're barely visible:

Just popping into say I wasn't keen on the green at first, but it's really grown on me, great addition to the desktop view.

ha, it was a bit of a random choice that, every shade of orange looked too red or eye stinging bright and I wanted something different - I did have it in dark mode as well but thought it drew too much attention.

Oopsie. I clicked the brighter mode to check the comparison and lost the dark mode in the process. I can't seem to get it back.

Can you enable it for me once more? I liked it.

So far so good. Like the mobile experience, that's what I've used most. Feels very weird for RAWK on mobile to feel modern  ;D

Definitely easier on the eyes.
