Been pretty busy lately so this slipped, more of a reskin + feature/filter module than a redesign but this works IMO (I am sure some will not agree, but that's cool).

I have erred on the side of caution regarding accessibility rather than going for something super "beautiful", making sure designs AA compliant is de jure.

The 3rd news post is a hover state BTW.

@eightarmedpet Look gorgeous, but personally not liking the yellow. Doesn't feel at home. Maybe a different shade of the logo color or something along those lines (more uniform basically).

@mac_editor cheers! Yeah thought the yellow would be contentious but went for it because I felt tech sites tend to be very blue and I wanted to have some bold contrast!

Here it is in blue...

Quite true. The yellow would be a more fresh and unique look for sure. The blue color + the darkened background which you did in your second render for the yellow might look nicer. In any case, you are making the current design look seriously outdated haha.

@eightarmedpet I like the reskin a lot! The mustard color is interesting too.

The new status "dot" is too large. The lightbulb previously was nice, or the dot could be much smaller - would look better. Also all posts seems to require moderation (including my own). Seems like a new issue.

Getting error 400 and recapcha issues quite a lot atm. Have to remove all website data and cache regularly. Is there something server side that could be causing these issues?

@eightarmedpet, a setting that increased error 400 occurence has been reset. Also, the reCAPTCHA V3 threshold has been lowered to 0.6 Please clear your eGPU.io cookies & retry login.

@nando4 Occurs frequently: Forum elements fail to load completely and prevent any user interaction. In my case, this includes writing replies, approving/unapproving posts, editing posts, etc. Image of "stuck state" attached. Had a hard time using the Attach Files button (didn't load my prior uploads or allow me to upload a new file).

Loading the website in a fresh browser window sometimes fixes the issue.

@mac_editor, the web caching has been rolled back and a brief test of 'attach files' shows its working OK. Please test and advise if any more issues.

@nando4 @itsage Automatic hyperlinking for common solutions/guides/etc. gone?

purge-wrangler, automate-eGPU EFI, purge-nvda, etc. used to be automatically hyperlinked. Loved that feature.

Testing: Best bootcamp guide.
Update: didn’t work. Not sure what @oliverb means in the follow-up.

Automatic hyperlinking still works for important guides like the best bootcamp guide.

@itsage @nando4 minor gripe: previously both purge-nvda and purge-nvda.sh were highlighted appropriately, but now the latter misses the ".sh" with automatic hyperlinking.

A fair few folks on reddit complain this site is hard to navigate, as its grown I feel that may be true and folks who know the site well and have been on it for a long time have learned to navigate it along the way evolving with it, for new comers it can be a bit of a maze.

As mentioned previously, I'm not the most tech person, which can help me see things with beginners eyes (I'm not much better) so wonder if I were to propose a new module for the home page there would be any interest in implementing it? Not a tool like the previous visuals but more of an explanation on how to use the site with some links.

Can also supply the icons I designed if of interest.

@eightarmedpet I agree. We'd love to redesign the header and Navigation to make things easier. The module for the time being sounds great too. I'll send you an email to discuss further if you don't mind.

What happened to the Marked All Read button? Actually reading a topic is insufficient. The forum software is horrible at indicating which posts and topics I've read or not read.

Been busy with work the last few weeks and finally logged in to see the new forum layout...  So is it just me or anyone else can't see the "Recent Topics" when I check the Activity page like it was previously.  All I see is "Recent Posts" in the larger left frame and "Recent Posts" again in the smaller right frame... 😐

@nando4 Editing very long posts in Safari is not possible as the text box automatically scrolls back up when I try to place the cursor at some latter point in the post. Not always feasible to enlarge the post box.

Also feature suggestion/request: @admins and @mods tags for notifying all admins and moderators in a post respectively.

@Mac_editor, can you please provide a link to a thread you are having trouble editing? Editting the large DSDT override thread with Safari 12.0.2 did not reproduce the issue.

Any reason you wish to address the moderators or admins as a group? Consider that for oversight of forum activity we have post's 'report' button to alert admins/moderators of content. We also have this area for feedback.

@nando4 automate-eGPU EFI main post for example. I recently made a small change to it, but had to use Firefox.

Good points. I thought it would be a nice-to-have of sorts if one needed to notify either of these groups.

@mac_editor , appears to be some site-specific issue when scrolling down causes a scrollup on the editting window when using Safari. 

For now, pls click the full screen editting button and edit there or use another browser like Firefox or Chrome.

@nando4 enabling CSSOM View Scrolling via Safari's Develop > Experimental Features menu fixed the issue. Please test and confirm.

@Mac_editor, upon updating Safari 12.0.2 -> 12.1.2, it exposed the CSSOM View Scrolling option in Develop > Experimental Features. 

Indeed, setting that option fixes the scrollup post editing bug. Thank you for identifying the fix.
