    Thanks for the update and the work it requires.
    So far, mobile version looks fine. Because of my monitor settings,sometimes the desktop version is too dark but ok.
    I saw some of the marketplace posts the € symbol is not being displayed, like the char encoding is not the same.

    Looks great, really like how almost all of it functions, except for one small issue. When I'm using my phone, it doesn't seem to work to click the 'unread' dot, I'm always brought to the very first post, or the very last/most recent.

    I use this site almost exclusively during downtime at work, so I really need a way to turn off avatars...

    That to me, is much funnier than swearing being uncensored

    Meh, I was thinking about it, and maybe it's not such a big deal. This site has rules about what can be used as an avatar at least. However, is there no longer a way to edit your previous posts?

    edit: ah, there is! I guess it just disappears after a day.

    Is there a way to make it so that when you click a thread it automatically goes to the last post instead of the first one?

    Maybe a browser plugin that lets you add your own css to the page? Then you could selectively hide whatever you want.

    Add this filter to ABP
    Code:
    ||sevenstring.org/data/avatars/
    Just be sure to whitelist sevenstring.org if you are actually running standard ad filters. A common use these days is to not run any filters other than your personal ones and simply block elements that are undesirable such as autoplay videos and in your case avatars.

    I assume that means it worked on your end? If so, could you do a screenshot of your ABP settings?

    Mine didn't seem to do anything once I added that bit to it.

    I literally just copy/pasted it into the empty bar space next to the "+Add Filter" button and clicked and refreshed.

    Apparently mine is the pleb Adblock, and not Adblock PLUS, so it probably functions differently. Pity.

    My advice is to use ABP not AB. Add this to AB
    Code:
    /data/avatars/*$domain=sevenstring.org

    The desktop wouldn't look so dark if the colors were aware of how luminosity is perceived by humans. It's 70% green, 20% red, 10% blue.

    Blue On Black = Black On Black

    If they just made the highlights green or teal, the website would be a lot less tiring.

    The ads are pretty obtrusive now on mobile.

    Really? they were worse for me before. I used to have to pinch zoom them to the side, but now at least they're at only the very top and very bottom of my scrolling. I'll take an extra flick scroll over a pinch zoom
