Please keep the feedback rolling in, guys! The two opinions expressed here ("it's too long" vs "it's more sensible this way") are the very ones we'd been weighing, and we'd like to see which one you favor more overall.

This is good feedback, and yes, why not?

Do we have a dark mode? It's quite the pain in the eyes when i'm reading threads late hours at night. Lowering device's brightness doesn't help that much. Dark mode/theme would be helpful.

There is no dark theme implemented (sorry - it didn't occur to me when I implemented the present theme).

It has been suggested that you could try Dark Reader as a workaround - I've not tried it myself, so I don't know how well it works in practice.

It is time for the forum software to be updated again (but think months, not weeks), and I expect I would be involved in converting the theme again (old themes are not compatible with the current software version); it would not add much effort, I suspect, to make a dark version at that time - so I'll bear that in mind.

Oh,okay. But when you implement it, please use the light smooth shade of black like discord's or facebook's one. Don't use the pitch black one or the one of ff.net's. Those are just complete eyesore.

So I've gone ahead with what I hope is the Final round of restructuring, following some internal discussions and the complaints about length. Some changes have been reverted, so that Completely Off-Topic is pretty much back to its old state. Related People has been shifted under General and Chit-Chat, and we've made a conscious decision to keep Chit-Chatty topics away from more serious and intense discussion.

Hopefully there won't be any further need to reorder things after this, and this brings a semblance of order/logic to the forums while making it more convenient to scroll down. All active subfora fit in the space of one screen for me once I've scrolled down a little.

Ooh, I like this version! It's organized, but without being too long. Also, I know I said this already, but I really love that "Everything Else Evangelion" is grouped with the other two main Evangelion discussion sections now. Great job, staff!

Just one question... Now that the Fanfiction subforum is back in the Fan Works section, maybe the description for Fan Works should be changed? Because right now it says "For non-fanfiction creations", which might be confusing.

Anyway, thanks for all your hard work! :asuka_thumbsup: :kaworusparkle:
