I note that my screenshot in the competition came out a lot smaller than what I put in.

I don't like that I can find all my historic posts very easily.
12-year-old Archie is more Admer-like than I'm comfortable accepting.

I'm in the middle of reading yours now, actually. And Urby's, and mine. It's nice to know we were all dumb once.

I'm most shocked at just how much I lied.

I keep talking about my campus and having an alienware and shit.
I'm like.. Motherfucker, you're 12.

From the "Hello thread":
Here are some things I like:
Scripting (PHP, AmxModX (pawn), JavaScript).
Retarded but not stupid people. I'm a bit retarded my self.
I was not a confident boy. Wow. To be fair I was probably referring to my ass burgers, but I'm glad I'm not that fifteen-year-old boy any more.

You solve this by getting banned and creating a new account every 2-3 years so that eventually your post history will be squeaky clean.
Actually, don't do that.

I'm sure we don't need to look into my post history

We were all 12 once. We can forgive ourselves.

The fact that we got taller and wiser (for me, at least wiser) is a good thing. There is hope in humanity yet.

By the way, I love the new color scheme and the header graphics. This place's got SOUL!

Yeah. I was reading all mine too.. The cringe is real. Though it was nice to see myself slowly maturing and transition from asking questions to answering them.

So this has been confusing me:
Recently Active Thread ListRecently Active Thread List
The most recent thread list has a seemingly arbitrary order. Is that a feature or a bug?

Love how smoothly I just hopped over to the new site w/o having to register a new account, good work.

Colors need some work, but I'm sure this will be solved sooner or later. I'm guessing this is the default Bootstrap blue? Feels a little out of place.
Would love to contribute, but I don't play well with less/sass or responsive designs :(

Have you considered using Nginx over Apache? Its way less of a memory hog.

I really like the way the notification system works now, but I personally think it's a bit strange that the number of notifications displayed on the front page is the number of posts since you last visited rather than the number of threads that have been posted to. I'd still like to see the number of posts once I go to the notification page, but seeing a potentially large number on the front page doesn't really tell if they're spread over multiple threads or are just on a single thread. Still, it's a huge improvement over the old site with the clickable links.

On the main page, a small tag on the “new vault items” with different colours to distinguish between new and updated items would be marvellous.

Ooh! Uh... Hmm. What if users could make polls in their threads or journals? If you scroll through the Giant Bomb forums, you’ll see the sort of thing I mean. Actually, there’s a couple of good features I think those forums have, like the thread tags (poll, question, etc).

I think the color scheme is spot on now.

I like the juxtaposition between the orange and the blue. It makes the navigational links stand out.

I recommend making everything navigational blue, but everything else should be shades of orange (like the border around the post area should be orange rather than blue, because it's non-interactive).
