Seeing as this seems to be a big talking point, any discussion related to recent changes should probably go here rather than being spammed in status (I have no right to actually enforce this, just seems like a good idea)

Current list of changes is as follows:

  • Added the "Mention" system. Allows members to @ one another to draw attention to one or more members, including moderators.
  • Added new skins to YCM's theme selection.
  • Custom Member Groups are now visible everywhere, including the status bar. This includes name change colors and custom effects.
  • Reputation points are now visible at the top of your screen.
  • You can now click links in status comments.
  • Signatures are now visible inside of profiles rather than exclusively being on posts.
  • Implemented new site default theme YCM Modern with an accompanying Thin variant for lower resolution displays.
  • Recent Posts are now visible below Recent Threads.
  • Last visit time is visible in the user information next to a forum post.
  • Implemented YCM Vintage theme for that old Classic Theme.
  • The person who is the creator of a topic now receives a simple identifier in the user information section on their posts. (Only occurs on additional posts, not on the start of the thread)
  • Pushed the release of "YCM Memory" as a new theme, has a clean White and Black style.
  • Fixed a bug on YCM Classic with posts being misaligned(?)
  • Pushed the release of the new theme "YCM Uniform", a theme which has the ability to use custom backgrounds as well as a slightly more colorful appearance.
  • Profile tabs have been re-organized to make better logical sense, the points tab was also hidden as it had no use.

Changes will be updated here as they happen, please note that all changes will likely not function very well on YCM 2 and 2edgy as both of these are archaic and inherently broken.

2009 YCM skin when? Also, the changes that appeared on the YCM theme don't appear on the YCM 2009 Vintage theme, which means the changes aren't universally working.

I now see that thing that Rewas was talking about earlier. Wasn't using YCM1 then, now I am.

I like the mod stalker thingy that appeared earlier, but it should probably be under the status bar.

 

Rep being shown near notifs looks quite weird, I still don't know whether I like it or not.

This used to be some sorta circle image, but it's gone. I think Tormented deleting cache might've somehow affected this.

 

There were also two images on the top-left (near "No replies to this topic" text) for Basic View and Regular View.

After seeing the progress in just one day that YCMaker has done in entireity, he would get my vote.

If I may make a request... I use the 2edgy4me theme and I'd really like it if there was a link to the cardmaker somewhere without having to switch to another theme first. This isn't important right now but I might get back to making cards and using the in-site cardmaker when/if the "3.0" version comes around

2edgy is going to be on the sidelines for a bit. I use it, too, but it's a buggy mess and always has been, so it's going to stay until we have a better dark theme, then it's getting axed.

The classic skin will be done after I've re-designed/changed the main site theme, it's in a dire need of an update.

 

 

I now see that thing that Rewas was talking about earlier. Wasn't using YCM1 then, now I am.

 

This is strange because I haven't changed anything that would've likely affected it, does it only occur on YCM 1? It is possible that me recreating the cache is what caused it to break, but this seems unlikely as I only specified Avatars, maybe I'll do the image recache.

No comment.

I like the idea of online Staff Members being viewable too, I'll try and get that sorted as for visible REP, you could always block the element if you use an adblock extension, it might just look out of place because it's new. I will change them as appropriate.

I don't like being able to see how many likes I've gotten in my user bar. I'll repeat here, but I do not care for likes, I barely keep track of how many I have, they're meaningless currency and at most, they're kinda alright for communicating to the recipient of a like wordlessly. However, having to see it everywhere on YCM may reinforce some false sense of value these likes may have, which I don't like or agree with. The statistic is still easily accessed by visiting your own page and I don't think it should be more prominent than that.


BOYS, BE AMBITIOUS!

yeah, the other 3 themes don't have it

There's also another missing image. I think it was a tick.

Maybe it's possible to reupload the images (or recache I guess).

Before we freak out, I'm going to be making some changes to the mention system to see if I can move it in the user panel.


Alright, does it look better after the rest of the user info?

@mido9 it works, though for some reasons I get double notification from it.

 

@Tormented What is the overall plan when it comes to the other theme rework?

I support the "Mod Stalker bar".

 

I don't mind the like/rep count in the user bar.

@Nanachi Ninanai

 

I will likely be modifying a pre-existing theme that I find online, I'm already trialing a few with the staff team to see which one we like (granted they are in their base forms and not modified to show the cardmaker etc) I'm not talented enough to make a theme from scratch.


@'

 

I will look into fixing the shop system/revamping at some point, again there's a lot of things on the plate right now and I'm unsure exactly what I want to focus my efforts on (other than sorting out a new theme)
