    All of the 3.0 themes in development have been disabled. We were originally going to disable them shortly after the first of the year but that testing time was extended by a week to allow for more feedback. @Crazy Potato will continue working on his themes until they are approved for official use. If he chooses, Crazy will select a few people to have access to the theme while it is in development for testing and feedback purposes.

    Some people seemed genuinely interested in looking for bugs.

    The themes will be at a stand still till I feel like designing a new concept for 3.0 because 3.0 beta's design in my mind was final. I can't think of anything besides fixing some bugs so I guess I'll trash it and come up with something new. The downside is some don't like change that's the reason 2.0 can't be beat as I designed it based off JustAnime Forums.
    2.0 Beta was a 100% copy but due to the sidebar it was redesigned to a 90% Copy with 10% having color changes and including the side bar.
    Due to my choice in that design it stays till this day as many don't want to see it be changed.
    I'm going to go at it again with moving the sidebar around as I want more space and a new look on things if anyone remember Silver Station it will look like that a bit more.
    See you all in the next phase of 3.0...

    I think the right direction towards approval would be to first start with boxing in all of those open areas on side bar and other areas. A lot of people did mention something about that. I know another thing for me was lack of a JAN feel. Mascots are rarely if at all present and it lacked a branded feel. More work could be put into refining the design; buttons, logos, banners, icons need a more customized feel. Bring our brand into it! I think taking some suggestions in mind when working on it would get it approved faster than scrapping the entire thing and starting over. It does have a nice feel and you are going in the right direction, don't stop now.

    If we could get mascots leaning over the brand name like its a table or counter, or even a kind of "bartender" stance, it could turn out to be a really good logo and at the same time be a tasteful watermark. Do we have any mascot poses that could work for that? I know I mentioned it in the feedback thread, but I wonder if we have any mascot poses that would work.

    We also tend to use the mask of Zero a lot for our forum read/unread icons, which was good for nostalgia, but we could stand to change these into mascot silhouettes. Kami for a Purple-based theme, Arisu for a Red based theme, and Midori for a Green based theme. Arisu can also be used for the Blue (default) theme. This would definitely improve on adding the JAN brand.

    What you could do is do the 3.0 theme and a basic theme (basic being the current 2.0 for people whom have difficulty accessing the site) and 3.0 for people who want it.
    Just like how you would choose a different colored theme.

    When there were less lines and less boxing in of some areas, not only did it look very streamlined, for me, the page seemed like it loaded faster. If possible. 3.0 would be my default page setting.
