Thank you!

I don't have any complaints, but the user name and avatar following me down a long post is creepy!

I disagree. Are you one of those people complaining about the Reddit redesign as well?

There's a silly amount of vertical space on the forums list and threads list.

Quotes are cut off after something like 100 pixels.

The stupid avatar left of a post doesn't scroll off the screen when you try to scroll down. (It's also excessively large.)

The stupid Home/Forums/What's new/Members pane is using space at the top of my screen and won't go away if I scroll down. Every time I press PageDown I have to scroll back up a bit to see what it's covering this time.

Everything is a thumbs-up Like now.

Apparently you can embed (i.e. display) images in profile posts now. Why.

Mystery meat navigation for those of us who disable font downloads. Is "Stay logged in" checked or not? I have no clue.

There's a goddamn rich text editor. Those things weren't a good idea in 2005. Those things aren't a good idea in 2022.
It's especially not good when it's combined with mystery meat.

Basically, it's everything that's wrong with Web 3.0.

So, at last, Codex is trying to be mobile friendly. On top of it, I would suggest to rename General RPG discussion into General Mobile Shit discussion and remove all of those goldboxes, IE, PoE threads into the new Spam subforum.

The mobile cancer. So much wasted space, terrible colours.
You're retarded if you implement this.
"Don't you guys have phones?"
Not a fan, if the decision to implement this has already been made, an option to keep the old design would be appreciated.

The test site already looks outdated, like one of those dead forums that littered the internet after discord became a thing. Why not embrace the ultra-outdated look of the current website instead? Just keep the signature old graphic, implement the new features and you're gold!

On another note, a more conspiratorial mind may think this graphic change and those animated pixel art buttons that being pushed hard on the buttons thread are a coordinated effort by the moderator to make Codex look more accessible, advertisement-friendly and marketable. Maybe someone trying to cash out?

DarkUnderlord why do you want to change the site anyway? It's literally perfect as it is.

Security reasons! They want to protect our data!!!!!!1111

Infinitron: Google search actually penalizes the Codex for its current font size

Nah, just scaling to google's level, after the fundraiser last year, the userbase is sucked dry. Need new users, higher google ranking. Now all the bannings of undesireables begin to make more sense as well. And the intrusive ads.

I'm not an artist or graphic designer, but the best I can tell is the codex uses 3 colors that are mixed or have different shading effects to make the "look" of the current codex.

The current site uses the colors: #3f3f3f (gray) , #48505f (light blue) , #353f55 (dark blue)

The new site uses the colors: #383838 (gray) , #283246 (light blue) , #1d2434 (dark blue)

That's my bit of autism for today.

I'm not sure why they decided to change the colors, but it could be worse I suppose.

Elon Musk bought Twitter *shrugs*

I doubt they are updating the look of the site with the intent to sell. I could believe they want more ad revenue from traffic though.
