    I'm fiiiiniiiiiiished.

    Well, sort of. I mean, there's still plenty to do but it's a start and you guys, I think, can start moving in.

    Please, poke and prod. Bare in mind, the paint's still wet on this site so, fully expect a few bugs and errors here and there. We'll work our rumps off to get them fixed for you.

    Otherwise, I hope you enjoy.

    It looks nice :3

    However, any chances for lite versions?Because sometimes I have to use 3G to get on here, and I will be pissed if each page of EP cost me 1 MB of data usage, or more =…=

    Otherwise, this is the only forum that look THIS nice on smartphones.Good job Tyro :3

    Well uh, I guess this is a bit of a step. Gonna have to a lot to do in order to get things back in full swing.

    Here's hoping we have a quick and amiable recovery/upgrade.

    Something, something, I keep getting kicked from Chat.

    EDIT: Had to full view shoutbox, regularly going through Chat - Log In keeps logging me out before I can load anything.

    Meh. I've never liked XenForo. What was so wrong with vBulletin?

    vBulletin from a technical view was a mess, it made things hard to do and hence caused the Technical staff to say "What the heck is this" a lot, or so I imagine. Plus XenForo runs so much smoother and loads faster.

    That is true, it does seem to load, and run faster, though it's really "awkward" in a way of design

    The background for the "Everypony Spring" style doesn't go well with the font colors and general layout in the forum, at least in my opinion. Had to switch to the bland, but more homogenous default skin because it really started to hurt my eyes after just a few minutes.
    Other than that... yeah, I don't like it, but hey, it's new, it's different and that makes it automatically bad. I'll probably get used to it eventually. Maybe.
    ... Bad.

    I'd really like you to give us back Comic Sans.

    So, just a few concerns/gripes I have.

    1. More data usage on the website. Mobile access to this site now takes up approximately 3x more data than it did before (This is because Xenforo takes up more data in general in return for stability and a better interface compared to vBulletin) so it may deter some people from doing anything on mobile.

    2. Avatar size has significantly decreased and .gifs are no longer compatible. I would really appreciate it if this was looked into.

    3. The background for the Everypony Spring theme doesn't go well with the font colors and general layout of the forum. It's a bit too bright, and the interface to edit/post text is also distracting in that it is not a black-on-white background, instead defaulting to black-on-green, which frankly is headache inducing.

    4. see attached file

    5. Connectivity issues are abound. It takes longer to load pages and text actually lags when I type. Chat also kicks people randomly and the site has stability issues (404 errors once or twice over the past hour). This probably has to do with the increased data usage, but I'm sure there are plugins or workarounds to make Xen more stable.

    I've got a few more, but I'll wait and see. You guys will probably fix this soon.

    I noticed the increased data usage too, used 40mbs(negating other apps which used approx. 13) in just 35 minutes approximately.
