Isn't it possible to use a "public access" google drive? That way you basically have "unlimited" space for free. Not sure if its even possible tho. Could be a nice way to save some money.

Sadly I think that in order to make it work the way you're imagining it, you'd have to create a "G Suite" for Enterprises and Organizations, which costs money per month, per user. So if you want everyone on the site to have access, you'd have to fork out quite a bit of money.

Even if they used a regular user account with API access for uploads, they'd run into bandwidth issues, and also issues with account closure if someone (say CipSoft) decides to report it.

That theme is not the same quality as the default one we use and looks different. We want a dark color scheme for a same layout/browsing experience.
May I propose a color scheme that can be applied in a clone/child-theme of the main theme? Alot of members are annoyed by the hard whites, so I'm working on a color palette to rewrite all CSS selectors for the existing theme.



The example shown above is done via a browser plugin for writing CSS real-time. Although it's pretty simple for now, I'd love to hear opinions.

Yes, but it must come in a form of configuration options XenForo supports, not just plain CSS. That's kinda the way I was planning to do this but my designing skills would suck, so I didn't do it yet. But if you do, there's a big chance I can make it available.

Is there all colors? Because I found colors on main page that are not on that list.

There are many more options. It's hard to do without seeing this. I'd suggest you sign up to get a free demo of XenForo on their site so you can just test it live.

If you want that style that I made, I have the style file to import.
I sent you an friendship invitation on Discord.

Sorry, I have too many on Discord. Can you PM me your Discord username? I'm not sure which one looks better. I can send you the one we use now (the Dark) and then you can edit it if you wish and we can have a poll which one to choose.

Can't. And, as you see, my nick is also not good to just send you (and I like this reason).
But I'm at the "(Open)Tibia" Discord, and always as the last one online contact.
I also recently sent messages at their general channel.

Hello, OTLanders.
I made the theme below and I want your opinion.


Do you prefer the current Dark Theme or like more the one I made?
This is important because you will choose what the Dark Theme is the best.

If you didn't like a particular thing on this theme, just share and we'll discuss the best option.
I'm just trying to make something nice for our forum.
For example, I think maybe I'll add a padding to the logo area, because some people suggested.

The actual dark theme is this one:

Well, I'm waiting your decision, guys.

Good work on the update.

I feel like elements lack spacing between them in the default theme. It also gives me some vintage vibes which is not so bad in my opinion, it's okay.
I found a few errors (?) as well, such as some alerts with centered alert icon but the text is slightly leaning towards the upper bound of the alert box.

The dark theme is very dark, it's fine in my opinion. However, some alerts are improperly colored I suppose (like the update announcement on top of the forum list).
