    Unfortunately they removed the option again. Really disliking this forum now because of it.

    Would be nice if they would respond to this since it’s been mentioned numerous times in this thread. What is the point of having feedback if no one listens?

    I have been playing here frequently since the Touch Arcade site was upgraded. The site is being improved a lot. Even if there is something that is lacking now, it will improve over time. Thanks to everyone. :)

    I HOpe the game preview icons will be added back. It’s literally the one thing that’s keeping me from visiting new the site .
    I use to be able to click on a game by its game icon but that’s gone now .
    It just looks bunched up now to me

    Now that the XenForo thingie has been live for a bit, some more feedback.

    Overall I think it's pretty good. But on the things that could be improved:
    • In my opinion, the information density is a bit low when opening the website.
    • Maybe partly in overlap with my previous point: I'd like the option for a compact view
    • The color scheme is a bit all over the place, especially the forums. There's also some places with light gray or yellow text on an already bright background (e.g. left menu) that is sometimes hard on the readability
    • A dark theme would be a good addition, too
    • Or the option to reply to front page items with our forum account (instead of Disqus)
    • I think I mentioned this already, but the game link blurbs on the bottom of multi-game news articles are a pain to scroll through and should be either smaller or collapsible somehow.

    I have a Photophobia, due to that i need dark theme, my eyes can't take this much white on screen, is there any workaround for this?

    Found quick solution for now, downloaded AStyle firefox addon, toggled ON option on Background Images.

    AStyle stopped to work for me, for unknown reason, is there any possibility to have at least darker background?

    I’m sorry guys but I find this new site layout appalling.
    The old site was cleaner and much more attractive to use.

    I’ve found myself visiting this website less and less because of it and using other sites for my app info.

    Sorry but that’s how I feel about this ‘new look’
