If something seems to be broken with the forum software, please post about it here.  I intend to use this first post as a sort of bootleg issue tracker.

0001 - The formatting buttons for making replies are just gray boxes.
0002 - Background is too orange for UglyJoe's taste.
0003 - Need a graphical logo in the upper left.
0004 - Menu in mobile view is white text on white background.
0005 - Some menu items in Admin area (and maybe elsewhere) are invisible unless you mouse-over them.
0006 - Get Glass Joe's ugly mug back on the read/unread forum icons.
0007 - Add assorted pixel art back on buttons.
0008 - Get the Feedback threads hooked back up in user profiles.
0009 - Quick reply uses a monospaced font for some reason.
0010 - Tapatalk plugin.
0011 - Get country flags working again.
0012 - Main navigation needs link to FW site.
0013 - Fix spoiler tag
0014 - Install anti-spam plugin
0015 - Add a "login" button next to the "sign-up" button
0016 - Change or get rid of the ugly "no avatar" avatar
0017 - Add per-post subject headers back into the thread view.
0018 - Look into global/user timezone settings.
0019 - Remove yes/no confirmation prompt when pressing "mark all as read" button.

Hello, I am totally a legit person and not UglyJoe registering a new user to make sure registration still works and the anti-spam plugins isn't too overbearing.

^ Look at what UglyJoe forgot to disable.

Are the 'likes' buttons really necessary?

Also, I had trouble finding the login button, expecting it to be next to the signup icon. Is this something you have control over?

I'm happy that that the small bricks were removed. ;D

I turned them on to see what they would do.  If everyone hates them then I'll turn them back off.

I was thinking the same thing but wondered if it was just me :-[ .  I don't think there's a configuration for that but I can hack it in.

Looks like they are still around (they are on the Reply page) but they're not shown in the thread view.  I can see about adding them back in.

I actually still haven't found it yet, although I somehow managed to log in.
I clicked on something I don't have access to as a non-user and was taken to the log-in form.

When you're not logged in, it's in the white bar that runs across the top.

Oh that white bar. I didn't notice it. Thanks!

Another issue I'm having is time zone.
When I choose my time zone (UTC+1 = CET) the time is 4h ahead instead of giving me the correct time it's supposed to. This was also an issue on the old forum version

Not an issue as such, but something I hope can be changed. When you click "Mark all messages as read" on the main forum page you get a browser message "www.famicomworld.com says: Are you sure you want to mark messages as read? OK/Cancel".

The extra confirmation isn't really needed, and on a personal note, in an effort to battle RSI I try not to use the mouse at all when I'm at home, instead relying on keyboard only for better ergonomics. With Chrome I use the plugin Vimium which allows for easy navigation without needing a mouse. But that browser message forces me to reach over to the mouse to click it away.

EDIT: Actually, you can just click that with arrows + enter/space. So I'm good. Still, the question is kind of unnecessary.

Probably some time zone property I need to change.  I'll look into it.

I can look into changing it.  It didn't prompt in the older version so I don't see why we'd need to now.

Hecka yeah.  Vimium is great.
