Hi all, I've tested this theme (now officially called Dark Roast) thoroughly. It's a premium theme by IPFocus with which I've tweaked the colours and graphics to nod as best as I can to the old vBulletin forum theme. A reminder of what it looked like: I've tried my best to answer and help as many people as I can. I'll continue to help (or try to) anyone who messages me. There is all the same functionality as vBulletin and some more. Any custom work on the old forum I have a list of and will chip away at them when I can (such as the number of mentions on each post). Apologies that some people have lost badges. Please message me ( @Tait ), @Glenn, @Rhys, @Nate and we'll reinstate it. Part of the reason for updating the forum software was using the built-in tools of IPS to stay on top of things like badges. In the old vB system, some badges were ranks, and some badges were based on the user group, so there were some inconsistencies inherent with the platform. If anyone finds any weirdities, please let me know in a PM or the appropriate thread. (They happen! - you can't make a latte without frothing some milk.) Please keep this thread specifically for Dark Roast (Previously called Premium) theme feedback or updates. I'm working on recovering the old avatars for those who haven't updated theirs yet and older images which didn't come across. Both are recoverable, albeit with some reasonable effort. I've spent 4 hours or so on it today and not quite there - testing locally on my machine. These two are my main focus and will likely only sort emergency issues out until I've tackled these. I appreciate those of you who've been adaptable, supportive and helpful (special mention to @MildredM) . I apologise to any who've been confused or felt disgruntled by the new changes. Please do your best to guide and support outwardly and grumble about anything you want privately to me (I'm not a fan public negativity). I'll help. We're going to keep the positive spirit of this place alive and invest our best in growing it. Thank you for your patience over these transitory weeks. @Rhys and @Glenn are active and admins - they have full admin authority to tweak, ban, edit, moderate, badge up, sticky, remove spam etc. They're also feeding into me and helping steer development. I'm going to try and be more verbal in future about coming changes and gather useful feedback and positive criticism where I can. Thanks for staying active and for being such a great community. Tait
