    Fantastic upgrade. Thank you very much kind sir! I love everything about it. My avatar looks a little pixelated and I don't have any rep stuff under it, but I'm sure it's just because the tweaking isn't finished yet. I think the color scheme is just fine the way it is. My only suggestion is regarding rep. I liked it when it was "weighted" and the more rep you had the more rep you gave. Not really a big deal but I liked that feature.

    I liked it as well. Unfortunately, this add-on (I didn't write it) doesn't support it.

    At some future point, I might mod it to support that but for the time being it'll stay as-is.

    On the ones I checked, it looks like if you link an image and NSFW or Spoiler it, everything is hidden. But, if you attach it, the thumbnail shows outside the tags.

    Right, this was point #2 on my "known-broken" list.

    This only affects past items, new uploads can be placed in-line in the post. During the import, old attachments don't retain their location within the post - they're attached at the end. Since they're thumbnails, I'm not too worried about it. It's not like a giant NSFW image is going to pop up when scrolling an old thread.

    I may be the only one who uses the site this way... but I currently have avatars turned off and don't see that function anywhere. Did I miss it somewhere? For me it makes the site a lot easier to browse at work.

    No, sorry, there's no option for it. However, I can probably just create a second theme and kill the avatar block out of it.

    I'll make sure there's something available. I'm guessing you're not the only person who browses the site who wants work-friendly browsing.

    Add me in to those who read without avatars. It's important if it's not too much trouble. Thanks for your work - it looks great.

    Okay, flip over to the new site, scroll to the bottom and where it says The Idiot Board - UI.X, click and select the one labeled (no avatars).

    I've hidden the avatars from the forums list, the discussion list and inside threads. It's a little rough in that I didn't go seek out the containers and remove them, so there are just blank spaces, but the way I did it will make it easier to maintain upgrades in the future.

    Does that work for you guys?

    Awesome. The selection of that theme is sticky as long as you're logged in, so you shouldn't have to re-select it again.

    edit: just made a bunch of changes, hid a few more avatars.

    I poked around a bit the other day, and I like what you've done with the place.

    Where can I find the options for a 6 a.m. wake-up call and fresh towels?

    We'll hang up a few new pictures of your lovely wife's nipple piercings and the place will look just like it always has.

    It would make a nice wallpaper. Keep people from stealing their employers time.
