    Anyone know if there's still an 'unread posts' feature?

    It's the "New Posts" button :)

    There's no way to do that in XenForo, sorry.

    Not at present – we're currently using the default XenForo theme with some very minor tweaks, so we've not really got around to looking at styling options yet :)

    @Swifty is right: the members list is disabled by default. I personally have no plans to re-enable it – IMO it's not really useful for anything beyond giving spambots and spammers an easy list of profiles to harvest. What you're looking at is the notable members page, rather than at the member list.

    Correct. In any other circumstance, we'd have transferred all the passwords and there'd have been no need to reset them. However, the old forum database was compromised – we must assume (and we have very good reason to believe) that all passwords on the old forums were leaked. So it was a major security risk to allow those passwords to be used.

    Looks like I won't be visiting at work then!

    Edit - apparently there's a "nsfw" mod for the forum

    Oh god, everything is different, I can't deal with change!! o_O The site seems to be awfully white now, odd thing is I can't remember if it actually any whiter than the old site lol I'm sure I'll get used to it, and if not then well whatever, I'm sure I'll live without spending so much time on a forum anyway lol

    On the plus side, I really like that we get alerts again when someone quotes you, I really missed that feature. I'm also a fan of the new posts feed on the right hand side.

    Thanks to the guys n girls who worked on this, it's appreciated.

    Snazzy, I picked the perfect time to return from my holidays. And I have my post count back so I look like the intimidating grizzled veteran I am once again. Neat.
    Unfortunately I can't seem to uncover these new inline spoilers using Safari on an iPad. I used to just tap the old ones to uncover them but now nothing happens. Since inline spoilers are one of my favourite things to use, it would be good if this could be fixed.

    Yeah, I've noticed that. I'll try and get a fix in as soon as possible :)

    Nice work folks, I always appreciate the effort you put in to allow me to ramble about anime and such here (maybe that's not specifically why you do it though).

    The inline spoiler tag doesn't seem to work for me at the moment, I just see what's written clearly without any need to unhide it. This is on Internet Explorer 11, which is the only thing I've tried so far.

    I develop on a Mac, so IE is the bane of my existence :p I'll get that sorted too, thanks for letting us know :)

    The main thing is that the post backgrounds were blue before whereas now they're basically white.

    By the way, I really like the new site design. Every time I do something, I spot a new feature. Thanks team! :)

    I really like the look of this software. It'll take some getting used to having such large avatars, but I'm sure I'll manage :)

    Speaking about redirections, there seems to be a bit of a glitch in the redirection as using the backup forum link I have redirects me to the .net domain, but if I use my original forum link instead of still sending me to the .net domain variant I'm being redirected to forums.animeuk.news

    That's something that might have to be looked into if there's only meant to be directed to one domain.

    So that we can nail down exactly where it's coming from, which exact link is it that's sending you to the wrong address?

    (Probably my fault ;_; )

    Been off for a while, really like the new look forum! Thanks for all the hard work!

    Seconding the request for different colour schemes, black text on a white background can be pretty harsh to read. Maybe I should just mess with my monitor settings.
