A dark theme'd be good on my eyes (unless there is one already and I just haven't found it yet). I currently use an extension called Dark Reader to change the site into darkmode on my end, but it's been known to be a bit of a resource hog, so having a built-in dark theme instead would be very Noice™.

Also, maybe instead of just using the old MSPA Forums logo, why not make a MSPA Forums^2 logo or something? The old one just feels a bit too placeholder-y for my liking.

Not speaking in any official capacity:
If you want a lightweight way to theme sites, I recommend Stylus. That doesn't do the work of generating the dark mode theme for you, though... 🤔

never mind that ↑ it sucked any way, maximum character count increase, or some other work around

edit: moot point, found my own workaround and never came back to say otherwise

I'm more easily reached at ceeps#9999 on Discord. I will respond to reports faster there because PHPBB's notification system is borked and doesn't email me when you report things.

Having a ratio of how often people post on average would be nice addition to the Members tab. Like, I know I have 300 some odd posts, but I'd like to see how many posts a day that is (Exactly 4 a day), without having the do the math myself, for example. Which, I know you can see it if you click on a members name, but seeing it as part of the list of every user would be the dope

Also pinging people in a post so they get a notification?
Edit: oh also maybe that RSS bot could do something with HS^2? I don't know how easy it would be to make it only do the first page of the update as opposed to all of them, but I think that could be useful.

On Omegaupdate they have like buttons on posts/comments. I really liked using that button to show people I... well that I liked the post, but on this site I gotta make an entire new comment just to do that which I feel clogs up the site with useless posts. But the alternative is not spreading the love which is also sad.

I was thinking of using the report button to say "this is funny" but that would only be seen by mods / be an abuse of that system. You should add a like button :)

I'm actually actively deciding against reacts or upvote/downvotes because i feel like they're corrosive to developing a good discussion.
seemingly to avoid "everyone liked/disliked that" instead of actual discussion on topics.

Best course of action would probably be to follow a thread and eventually make a post on it whenever you feel you have something to bring to the discussion.

Oh damn. I understand not having dislikes but how would likes prevent good discussion? Like personally if I have something to say I'll say it, but sometimes I don't have anything to say but still want someone to know I enjoyed their post. Or on the fan adventures for example it'd be a good way to gauge engagement, since views don't tell a lot and not everyone who reads them delivers commands.
