I don't have much to say about it, so this will be quick.
You're looking at the new theme, Celestial Dawn. It's taken long enough, and although it might not be what you would expect out of eight months time, it should be better than the old theme we previously had. The theme was a few weeks work by Spero78 and I, and is not the original theme ALPHA101 was working on due to a twist of drama I don't believe is necessary to be explained.
There's still a fair few things about it I still need to change/fix, and chances are that if you see something that's broken or looks weird, I know about it already (but it might not be a bad idea to let me know just in case).
Yes, the forum icons will be replaced. The private messaging module looks unsettling but is still functional, and the Spoiler tag needs to be restyled. I will be making necessary changes whenever I have the time for them; school has kept several constraints on my free time.
Please give your opinions on the new chatbox - whether it should be on the top or the bottom of the forum, shorter or longer, do you like it, etc.
If you don't like the new chatbox, you are free to cite alternatives. We won't be going back to Chatango.
Hope it was worth the wait!
