Can I add "the sysop's disagreeable attitude" to this list?

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic.
Maybe this is an apt time to ask the question: who is making use of the Friends & Foes feature?

I'm pretty sure ICJ put me on his foes list, or at least that's the impression I get since he already banned from the new/old base.

So I grabbed the color of the background of the posts and identified the color in Photoshop.

I then did a search in the css files of this theme. I was going to change the color. The color does not appear.

What I fear is that there is a base color and then some sort of overlay that goes over it. I fear this, because that's how the minds of people that developed css works. They are absolutely the dumbest fucking cretins and why we are using this format is beyond me.

So if someone has an idea on how I can identify and then change the background color of posts, I'll do it. (I tried looking up the tags - "content" is the one, but that offers no clues as to the color.

It really would be better if we all just HOSTS this place.

I really like the new color scheme and how it resembles the old BBS color scheme that everyone including myself enjoyed.

Changing the highlight color and the color of unread posts from red to just about any other color (green for example) would be a huge improvement.

That's why you're trying to break with your obnoxious text that bypasses it?

All I did was compliment Robb on the progress he's made, I have no idea what the hell you are talking about here or in the very next post you made.

Billy Mays is correct. I am not sure why people are ganging up on him here, in this thread. In fact, he's been a model member since he returned. There's 200 other people in the memberlist, let's concentrate on giving them a hard time instead of Billy.

I feel like the search function is broken.

I searched for a very simple thing and nothing came back, but I can see it.

Is the search function broken?

Get we get an "edit" button now? Surely the newer phpbb version allows for a timed edit button? Like, 10 minutes or so?

He's saying a mod or plugin exists that allows it, not that it is currently available here. He's LOOKING INTO IT, Christ.

This makes it all worthwhile. I hope we keep you here. I know I am being savaged on Discord, but I don't care. You keep the BBS going.

Like I said, most mobile sites suck add, especially this one. No indication of what thread was last updated. All mobile sites represent compromise unneeded since we had razr phones.
