For me, it is all right. I really like all what you did SZ. Congrats, great work. I really hope it will all go right from now on. I like the changes(site name, boards and staff).

Okay, I'm an idiot and forgot to change the theme for guests on the main site yesterday. Its not supposed to be green. :P You can check out the new MPL theme now.

The maroon/crimson and gray don't contrast enough so it's hard on the eyes. Plus, they just don't compliment each other. A lighter gray (the gray that shows up around the post box when you're writing a post, for instance) would look better than the current main gray color.

And the posting page needs to be tweaked. You can't see the white text on the light gray background.

I understand that some might have a bit more trouble viewing the Forum compared to the other themes, but I made this theme to match the main site's new theme so I can't go with a lighter color.

And I know what you mean about the white background. Profiles are hard to read as well as the Topic Summary. I can't find any way to change them on the themes files and they may be something that is part of the default theme. This could be that if I changed the background color of say, the Profiles, to black, this might be a change made to every theme. This might not be true but if it is, it would be a win-loss situation.

And now the Boards. Should we entirely go back? I have no problem with keeping the Sony and Microsoft boards but the rest are not as important to me. Mario Party boards can go back to normal but the reason the we took some out was because at the time we were discussing board changes, the Mario Party boards were lacking in post count and some didn't get any posts for days.

EDIT: Thanks for the compliments on the theme. It did take a while. :P Don't forget to thank HJ who created the sprites need for the buttons (the spaces and orbs).

The only board that needs removing is the Anime board, the rest is OK. And also, bring back the Mario Party boards, the new board looks so crowded it's not even funny. =P

Anime board definitely doesn't need to be out there, if you guys are still waiting for it to get activity put it as a child board. And I don't mind Sony and MS boards but the only thing is not much people have either and are that big into it so the boards might be pretty inactive. And I liked the old Mario Party board layout better.

The only thing that the boards need is for the Anime board to be removed. I'm okay with it as a child board, but I don't think it's that important to get its own board.

Btw someone should change the default theme to the new theme so that way the guests can see it too.

After weeks of inactivity, I was viewing this forum and it had a parsing error...
Few days after that, I saw this and all I can say is, SMPSF has evolved into MPL!
And that means SMPSF is moving to a whole new level :o

The new dark Legacy theme is just incredible!

Is there a way to change just the text on the white to a different color? Like through trail and error experiment?

Yea I think the text problem should be adressed. Like in the Moderation center I have to keep highlighting everything to see what it says.

I just have a suggestion on moving boards around.

General Discussion could go into General, and Fan Content and Blogs could go in Irrelevance.

I have tried multiple times (for other themes and this one) and what I think it might be is something I would have to change in the default files that would affect all the themes. I haven't looked into the default files but I will go and see what I can do right now.
