Since opinions are clearly divided, how about implementing an option for users to turn it on and off? I'm not sure how feasible doing so would be in actual practice, my experience with phpbb is rather limited, but I'd be surprised if it were completely impossible

Patience, young padawan. So far it's just two people who've explicitly disliked it against several others who like it or have a "wait and see" approach, and there's no telling if those who currently dislike it will warm up to it eventually.

Well, there's more Rei now, so it's good

In all seriousness, I like it, it's kind of goofy, but I don't mind.

I said I disliked it, but it's not a problem at all. Don't wasting your time implementing new options; don't worry about me.

I just want to say I'm 100% in favor of the new thread icons. That is all.

I like the new organization/order of the subforums as well as the new icons, and I agree that the rebuild icon should be something more rebuild-specific like Mari or awakened shogouki.

That Rei is Rei Q, who belongs to Evangelion 3.0. How much more Rebuild-specific could that possibly be?

I would really like a user option for it.

Since the "Old stickies" is a thing, and it's just sitting there, with no emoji while the others having one is kinda eyesore. Maybe it can have this- :old_sensei:. It's even 25x32, within range for keeping everything aligned.

I'm wondering if it ought not be in "Nostalgia" instead, where the lack of icon would be a non-issue.

I'll follow up on that suggestion and move it to nostalgia, since there are old stickies from other subforums that could go in there, not just OT.

:lol:

Yeah, but not everyone is in as deep as we are. Especially looking at a tiny Icon, it might just register as "Rei", whereas Mari is unmistakably NTE.
Tho the current ReiQ icon is fire, not gonna lie.

Blank, cold stare, thick red collar, slightly visible black plugsuit and interface headset. Obviously Rei Q. Grasp that already, people. :reiq_stare:

Is it really that hard to put oneself into the shoes of someone who is not a mega fan, or maybe hasn't seen NTE yet... sheesh, the level of arrogance and sociopathy is staggering.

I was just pointing that out for those whose still can't differentiate between original and rebuild counterpart with a little bit of humor. Guess that got offensive. I apologize if that's the case.

:bigeyes: :facepalm: :lol:

I guess I made a fool out of myself, accusing someone of lacking sensitivity by lacking sensitivity of detecting a joke myself. Oh the irony.

I apologize, this was my fault.

From six years ago -- https://www.yahoo.com/news/secret-softw ... 35487.html -- one would have hoped that such a thing might be widely available by now.
