Will the Unreal Theme be restored soon? The latest color scheme hurts my eyes when i look at it for too long.

I actually love it now. The only two things I don't are:

as said, when you click on a thread title from the forum page (ie. General Discussion), it takes you to the first post even if it's bolded and has unread posts. I believe it used to take you to the latest post you haven't read.

also when you scroll to the bottom to the quick navigation thing, there's no "Go" button like there used to be.

Loving vb4 now though, surprised it only took a couple of hours to get used to it and love it.

Yeah, it's quite easy to get used to. But I still want that feature of taking you to the last post ;)

The feature to rename the spoilers is gone. So if they do anything similar to that below. They will not work.

I would like some theme changes or at least colour changes too, to add to the previous to-do list. Please make the Line where the sig is more noticable, i actually believe now that every time sqrage posts he adds
This is a part of my post, not a signature.
xD . And shift the colours for new threads, light blue and grey are aful when you keep trying to skim through the posts.

Yes, we have said that already in this thread. What we're asking for is for the links inside User CP of subscribed threads to lead us to the first unread post automatically like it used to in vB 3 ;)

Oh now...I finally get what you guys were asking...I thought you guys already knew since it's pretty obvious out there, but no...:p

Not a fan of the theme. The text does not read well with the background (not dark enough). :(

Probably. That's phyrex1an's department, however, so it will be up to him to fix them, most likely.
Oh, I hope it's soon. The WC3 resources posts are pretty FUBAR at present, especially since last I looked
didn't work any more, either. (Although,
this works?
)

And shift the colours for new threads, light blue and grey are aful when you keep trying to skim through the posts.
Agreed. I'm no usability designer so I can't tell why, but the readability of this theme seems worse.

The focus seems off too; I'm staring at the left side of my screen trying to read a thread.
Me too.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
