The new Emoticons, but far.  I love this one:  :shock:

EDIT:  Well, new to the refugees of course.

My favorite advantage of this setup over the old is the ability to receive email notifications of replies to threads that you didn't start.  Helps a lot when trying to keep track of conversations in several threads.

Other than the buttons (which, granted, there are a lot of them), a forum theme shouldn't take more than an hour or two.  Or, you could do a gonegold version of the subSilver theme, just hacking the overall_header.tpl to add in the CG logo, in about 30 minutes.

I like being able to switch forums without having to click on the "Go" button.  I'm a lazy bastard at heart, so the less effort, the better.

Cool.  I just installed another blank phpBB to dink around with creating a gonegold version of subSilver.  If you need a place to test you theme, let me know, and you're welcome to play with the empty forum on my server.  It's a slightly later version of phpBB, but to the best of my knowledge, it uses the same template system.

The Gone Gold "Classic" look is something that I'm sure will be up in short order if GG doesn't come back.  That said, if enough folks really want it, we'll look into it anyway.

While I really liked the familiar GG color scheme, this board is great looking.  A fresh look for all the new people here.

I was always just wanting the option of a light colored forum setup at Gone Gold.  Its my goal to offer both a light and dark and a few in between.

I actually liked the black screen with lighter text.  Its easier on the eyes.

Exactly.  Its not so much about wanting this place to look like GG, so much as I do better with a dark background for contrast.  I really like the Console Gold logo!

Yeah, let me add to the demand for dark backgrounds! Not so it looks like GG, but because it's easier on the eyes.

I like being able to jump from the reply acknowledgement screen directly back to the forum...gotten used to that on the CoH boards.

Oh, and add me to the list of dark backgrounders.
