it won't let me do that. The field “YouTube” has invalid characters, only alphanumeric or _,-. characters are allowed and the first character must be alphabetic. :c

OK looks like you have a channel and not a user page! Not sure what the difference is, but I think once you get a custom URL set up (somewhere in the settings) you should be OK.

It's probably best that nobody does. Too much inflation and non-con.

My poor muscle memory needs time to adjust to where to look at active topics.

Also Ivo, you used that eye fryer of a forum setting?

Kind of agree, it looks very strange. I think this design is still a work in progress though.

What Enzo said. This looks too condensed for my tastes on my laptop.

The phone experience is super clean though.

ok so the forum body had a weird maximum width so i decided to write a simple stylish/stylus style for it that fixes the dang thing

Code: Select all

.wrap {
	max-width: none;
}
set it to either the domain chao.hippotank.com or URLs starting with http://chao.hippotank.com/forum
