I dont like to complain about these sort of things, but seriously wtf?

Why did we have to move from Vb to....this? Its so much harder on my eyes.

Because vB has it out for us and we're not fat rich corporate dogs so we can't feed them cash. However, I have xenForo paid for as well as IPB so it only makes sense to use one or the other.

Apologize if it's hard on your eyes right now. The only skin you see here that will stay is the Konata skin. I'm in the process of adding a dark skin. Hopefully you'll like it more. Off course the forum functions differently so you'll have to adjust a bit, give it some time and I think you'll like it.

It looks messed up in one browser and not the other, that may be the issue he is having.

We're all women!

Let's have a lessbian part-aaa!

Too bad the like system is going to get abused and there are going to be huge like-orgies of nonsense posts. You heard it here first, folks.

From my experience with forums on xenForo... not really. And unlike reputation... likes don't really give you rep... or anything for the matter. It helps cut down on simple posts like "Thank You". Just press like instead.

Oh I love the feature. I think every forum should have it.

Would it be possible to get rid of the (Likes received) statistic under the username? If it would be possible, would you consider removing it altogether to prevent people from min/maxing their likes xD

That depends on the skin. Konata isn't my ball game. The dark skin I'm adding will only have your post count added in and maybe the location.

Ok, there are a few features I like. Its easy to see when someone reacted to a post of me. Like Im on Facebook :p

And I guess I will get used to the lay out. That or someone makes a better skin ;)

I dont like however, the fact that I cant copy paste anything when I quoted someone. It caused me to highlight and replace everything I had written so far every time I pressed the right mouse button.

Once we get the major errors to stop happening I'll add a dark skin in. Tried it now and it just gets broken anyway. =/

The only other issue i have apart from the skin is the ava
I know you most likely can't fix how you imput an avatar.
But it kinda bits when it decides that even after i have cropped to the right dementions it's still too large.
I think thats about all the complaining i have for this.

The forum will crop to predefined dimensions. Just make sure your avatar is at least 200x200. Vertical avatars will not work well with skins besides Konata.

it's not the crop size dear.
I crop the ava so it fits with the uploader's perferance and it says it's to large, even with a photo 100 x 100 and 20kb

Animations won't work until we get them to work. Involves a bit of code, sorry. We'll fix it after the bigger problems are dealt with.

I hope Konata Skin get first priority.
Apart from its children theme, it's a very nice skin.
And virtually everyone is already well versed with it.

Your Empress has the boys working on it first. But like I said before, Konata isn't my ball game so I won't be dealing with it. It's trying to defy xF framework and clone vB and that's not my area of specialty but rest assured that it's getting the attention it deserves.
