    We've got the website to a state were happy with now and there will be a few bits & pieces to work on, a lighter theme will be available soon

    If anyone else has any sensible suggestions for us to consider in the future then feel free to drop them here

    @Ojay
    What about something on our profiles where we can add our top favourite photos from explores.

    I can't really see that adding much value to the site tbh, but still it's good to hear suggestions

    Or something where users can list places they've been, a sort of 'boast' wall.

    Well we have threads for that, so not sure if that's something that again would be of much use

    At the moment, the "New Posts" view currently defaults to 10 (as do the other areas - Asylums and Hospitals, High Stuff etc.) I *think* it was 25 or 30 or something on the previous version, which was easier (for me) on a mobile phone (and on a computer - less waiting for pages to load). Just an idea :)

    New forum looking good by the way - hats off to all involved :)

    I'd rather it was a higher number mate, but for technical reasons it had to be reduced.

    Thanks as well, was hard work.

    Does that also apply to search results? Noticed that if I search "sheffield" that results only go as far back as like last year, unless I go more advanced and search for specific things...

    Coloured letters used in reports
    In my reports, in the age of the old theme with bright background, I used self chosen, dark coloured letters.
    I liked the colour and thought it was looking good.
    Now, with the new theme and dark background, I found they became really unreadable.
    Example: http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/quarry-euville-france-april-2013.t80349
    Another, bright theme is announced for the future.
    To avoid similar problems as mine, I recommend only to use the original forum letter colour,
    and not to use any colour changes, since they might become unreadable too, on a bright background.
    Also we will have a mixed use of bright and dark themes by the users, which has to be noted.
    (I hope I wrote this understandable)
    thanks
    TF

    I like GRONK's idea of showing a selection of our fav shots on our profile, yeah it doesn't make a huge difference to the site but it'd be nice to see some of everyone's best stuff with just 1 click.

    I'll see what's possible ok.

    @The Franconian - I see your problem there, I'll see if we can do anything to help you. Maybe the underground moderators can edit the colour, for starters.

    Thanks OT, main aim of my post is to keep others away from that problem.
    I could solve my problem myself, if they were opened to edit (I don't have so many reports).
    I think I have included the whole posts in that colour brackets, just had to take them away.

    Just report any threads you come across and I'll sort them once we get the other theme sorted
