When they changed from old forum software SMF to the New NodeBB setup seems like some images did not translate well... They are still there from my understanding just not displaying..
When this first happened there was discussion on working to fix that... But not sure if that is still the case?
I know it sucks - but with growth sometime comes pain.. And some of the older posts might be harder to follow with loss of images... But this happens all the time when users use outside links to images and those images get taken down or the hosting location goes away, etc..
If you can not see for example this picture I am attaching of this posting - then you have something else wrong..
Probably yes, because the last part after the "." is more than 3 character long. I don't have that problem with a lot of sites, but some big company like one of my old cell phone member portal didn't like the .info
So when I tried to register to the forum and I got an invalid email address I didn't look further and used my .com alias instead.
Could be a time zone issue, but it's hard to say. I don't think anything changed on this server, though we were verifying NTP on a bunch of servers yesterday, so it's possible the system clock was off on this box. All of the timestamps appeared correct to me, though.
The default for everyone, logged in or not, is to put topics in order newest to oldest. I opened up a different browser and hit the forum and I spot checked a few categories but did not see any that were sorted oldest to newest.
If you are seeing "old" topics they are likely stickies and not recent posts. Look for the pushpin icon next to the topic title. If you can link to a specific example of a category showing old non-sticky posts first when logged out, I can look into seeing what is different about that one.
So if someone fiddles around with the colors it’s probably not getting any better…
As I understand the Skins/Themes, one would only fiddle around in the default skin for that. Others would have to be manually added. But as those probably use some CSS classing (I hope!) that should be possible.
I'd also like something like a dark-default theme but perhaps not so dark as slate. But something along the lines of Solarized/Solarized Dark. So that one has the option to have a light and a dark version without the light one being "white only".
Something like this palette: http://ethanschoonover.com/solarized
I had a lot of really good information in my PMs from the devs and from package writers… gone! with no warning.
And where did you ever get the impression that data on some public forum is safe, secure? How much are you paying for this forum access that you believe that netgate/pfsense and you formed some sort of contract that your PM would be there day to day?
Lets get real here! ;)
I also have multiple appliances, gold member and tester - and very active on the forums for 10 some years. I can tell you for sure I never had impression that my PMs were going to be there tmrw.
I don't pay google for gmail either - so i have no impression that gmail is going to be there tmrw either.
I can understand your visual problems. Then I would suggest you nicely bring up that the current themes are not very user friendly for people with visual problems - I am quite sure you will get not only support from the netgate/pfsense side in working on a theme that is easier to read, but also suggestions from other users with the same sort of issues and what they use on their end to help. There many tools to rework a websites visual themes for different reasons regardless of what the site owners layout is.
Calling staff Bozo's is not going to get you any help that is for sure.
Unless there is clear cut document giving sort of template and examples of what tags to use it can become pretty useless with just all kinds of freeform tags.
You're making it way more complicated than it needs to be. If you start requiring documentation etc it'll never happen. Mods are trusted members of the community. I say we let them exercise their discretion.
