    Sorry for double post but could there be a possible item to purchase to make thread titles different colours and whatnot ?
    Probably items similar to add a gif before/after/in a thread title ?

    Trow, if you could list out the ones you think you could implement and so on, like *ones i can *ones im unsure of *ones i definitely cant
    it would be helpful to us as well.

    This has been tried in another forum, which didn't end up well. Because the winner of a MBR is determind by the amount of votes they get from the forum members, people who bets will just vote for the one they laid their bet on, right? Unless this can be prevented, or I cant see this happening.

    There should be like an option on the threads you make with tools like deleting people's posts on the thread ._. Makes me feel like I'm spamming the mods to do the work for me when i keep slamming down the report button. dis necropost doe

    It's part of our job to answer reasonable reports, whether or not it feels like the person reporting content is spamming.

    I'll see what I can do for the "topic moderator" idea.

    It has been a while since there were events...something's probably being planned, probably...there might be a new banner, will there? That would be nice.

    But Halloween? That's four months from now. Even if you're considering the time the event will be completed, events should take more than one month or so. That's either planning ahead or some dedication to dark, fantasy themes. Either way, doesn't seem to be the time for that, I think.

    probably won't be necessary since some of us don't even have a livestream account or go on there actively unless for games or art.

    and it would be a mess giving an account to like how many of us are there
    for god knows what reason

    it would be better for individual streamers who could advertise us but ya

    He means an elaborate Download section. If it gets enough demand I'll eventually do it.

    Keep in mind I haven't really been on Maplemation much since the site was run on vBulletin, so I'm a little behind anything that happened since. This is also my opinion, and I know some of you will disagree with me.

    Right off the bat, the index looks very bloated and cluttered. I feel like a lot of things are there just to be there, and aren't really necessary. The banner sticks out too much (although it does get your attention). I feel like the navigation to the right of the breadcrumbs could be merged with the top bar, top 10 reputation and new content feel unnecessary (you can just scroll down to see the new content). Scroll bar seems oddly placed and if you want to keep the color changer, I would give it more priority, maybe let it change link hyper link colors too. This is all for the default, light theme by the way.

    I'm really not a huge fan of the “Recent Content” sidebars everyone has these days, I feel like you can see all of that right next to them anyway. Avatars feel unnecessary, just kind of builds clutter. I would maybe increase the weight on the category header text a bit as well.

    Overall the site's aesthetic “theme” looks decent, I just feel like there's so much unnecessary features that distract me from just wanting to look at the actual thread and post content. I don't care much for awards and marketplaces, I feel like people should focus more on the quality of their posts rather than their look, if you know what I mean (though of course, it’s all in good fun so there’s no reason to remove it either).

    About the Recent Topics. I would like it a lot more if it was only for the topics in the media section and if it could tell which media it is. Not sure if that's possible, but it would be really practical that way.
    Also, i personally would make it show 10 threads instead of 5. That should motivate people to work more to keep that updated, even if it is enough the way it is now.

    I'm not sure if I entirely agree with the idea of only showing media topics, as it would be nice to let people know what else is going on, but yeah 10 threads would be really nice. That way more people can promote their work easily without having to worry about each other hogging the latest thread section and as his/her own thread gets buried without attention xD

    Something also about how when other people post on their own thread, the thread being featured at each media section (or any section at all) gets overtaken
    mang, thtas a bother too
