    Is there any way to contact members via email? That used to be a feature, right? To be able to send an email through the forum to members who couldn't get PMs?

    Hi just tried my first sale post everything was looking good and running smooth until I tried to upload photos from my Galaxy S7 Edge what is the photo limit? I knew this would be a problem.

    For those interested in a "Dark" theme, I've uploaded one and am testing it out. You can selected it by clicking on your username at the top right, going to Preferences and then changing the style. This is live for a short time, I'm going to have to take it down to edit it to fit the forums

    Your image is probably too large in file size. I don't run a Galaxy, so I don't know if resizing it is an option.

    Wow I'm really digging the dark theme, and can you please tell me what the upload limit is so I can see if I can make this more painless on my resize? And thanks again you're on the case sir.

    I just posted my pictures using an external link for my Google pics and they're not showing up at all help please as I used the editor to do this so it should work unless its a bug.

    I also just super minimized the forums display on the dark mode, so for people who were unhappy with scrolling, you really should give it a whirl

    The layout is much better, I'm sure some folks will want it more compact than that but I don't see a reasonable way to do that and still have it be a mobile-centric design.

    The dark is cool too, I prefer the light but apparently I seem to be one of the few people who knows how to adjust my device's brightness levels.

    A+ would browse again... and again... and again...

    There's a light version of it too, but people were clamoring for dark... I'm going to work on it tomorrow then export the settings to the light version

    Love the dark theme and compact layout.

    You can also change the styles from the footer if you don't want to go through your profile.

    Poll results are not showing:

    YouTube videos are not displaying (click on up arrow of quote to go to original):
    Thread creator cannot close/open thread.

    The Ellipsis on forums continently gives access to Mark Forum Read and Watched Forums, etc. but not in the Tech Support Forum.

    BladeForums was down for about 5 minutes at exactly midnight Pacific Time. Perhaps some form of scheduled nightly maintenance task.

    Dark mode and the minimized forum display are sweet.

    One question: when viewing threads in a forum using the old software, there was a link (little box with an arrow I think) that would take you directly to the very last post in a thread without needing to scroll. Does the new software have this ability? That link came in super handy when I followed threads.

    Actually two questions: Is there a way to highlight stickied threads while in dark mode so they are easily identified?

    The Dark Mode is SO much better than the default mode imo. Love it.
