Red means unread post, blue means old/read post.



I miss the online/offline, helps with conversations. No point in waiting for a reply when the member is offline.

Alright apparently I misjudged the online/offline feature.

I've added it back but made it so it works the same as the light theme; that is there there will be a circular icon that represents the users online status.

Online:
Offline:

Still keeps the area fairly cluster free while giving you guys the ability to see if a user is online or not.

i like the new tags.

however i think the offline/online button dealio would look better on the left side of the user name. since everyones name is a different length having it on the left they will all be in the same position and more uniform. just my 2cents

So since we have new badges/tags for mods and contributors. Can we have badges like this for those who win the photo contest and the ranger photo contest and the totm?

That would clutter it up I think.

Plus it would lead to cheating.

Indeed, it would be too much cluster.

How can having a totm or a photo contest badge lead to cheating?

I know it sounds crazy but if you put a prize out there. People will cheat to gain it regardless of the value.

TOTM and the Photo Contest were set up for fun with no intent on giving any prizes away.

This.

There is a direct correlation between incentives for winning, and motivation for cheating. It's a general principle that applies to society as a whole.

It's a non-issue though as the main reason for not awarding tags out is that it would simply cause too much cluster.
