The test site looks already better than the first draft, so thumb's up for that.

What really bugs me at the moment is that buttons don't have text anymore, currently on old Dex the button and the text are shown after a rating (e.g. :argh: rage), in the new site, it is just the button ( :argh: ) which is less expressive and more difficult for users who don't know what a button means (and some of them are not really self-explanatory). It would be good, if that could be fixed.

Regarding those:

I’m thinking of making a Pip Boy like so:

…instead of the speech bubbles. What kind of dimensions should I go for?

I didn't see any test site, is it only for patrons / donators?
You need to equip the ring use this link https://rpgcodex.net/xf2/.
I can't say the new site looks ugly but it does look less friendly if that makes sense. You don't feel like scrolling down or going to the next page for some reason. I don't know the psychology behind it but it feels like more is crammed into less space and hence you don't want to read, scroll or explore more. Anyone feel similar?

How the fuck do I get rid of this awful scrolling top bar on mobile? Whoever came up with this should be shot
Edit: watched threads no longer shows me the threads with new posts. It shows all of the threads I have watched. This is unusable.

I don't think this new look is much worse than the old one.
Certainly lacks a few QoL things (like clicking on existing rating to add another one of those) and needs a bunch of small-ish improvements (that border around ratings is terrible, can't tell stickied threads apart from the rest, etc.).

Can certainly be brought up to speed. But what I actually wonder:
Why was this done? Old forum outdated / software no longer maintained?

Yes, the old Xenforo version was out of maintenance. Now we should be on Xenforo 2.
