    What do you think of the new look?
    Report back on your experience with the new theme! :)
    New Features:
    1. Day Night Cycle - Changes depending on what time it is on your pc.
    2. Layout - Simple minimalistic look.
    3. Staff Colors - There is now only 5 staff colors and 4 extra (Spor, Ella, Retired and Me.
    4. Automatic Activated Events - While messing with the Day Night Cycle code I managed to do something cool. Depending on the time I can active any neat features at a given time!
    5. Staff Role Redesign - To match the current colors. (I'll be making new ones to match this theme if it turns out well)
    6. Logo - I finally got around to making a sweet JustAnime logo not just text or a mascot.
    7. Kami Message Alert - I brought this back from JDR. Kami will inform you when you have a new message.

    I think that covers what's in Forum 3.0, Enjoy!

    Thus far I love this beta.

    #1. The day/night cycle what a cool feature. Tampered with the time on my PC and the logo changes to a cool night sky with a nice moon. During the day we have nice sun with some cloudy overcast.

    #2. The minimalistic look is very easy on the eyes. Also, almost didn't notice that the font color is now plan white. I'm not going to say anything bad about that.

    #3. Staff Colors all appear to be working.

    #4. Have yet to see this in action. Curious what features these are.

    #5. I'll look forward to this if everything turns out well.

    #6. Loving the Logo

    #7. Nifty feature with the Kami message alert.

    My only minor annoyance because I'm a stickler is the search bars placement.
    Can that be lowered to be directly above the user profile or directly below the new logo? I don't know it's current placement just strikes me as funny.

    Back already because I took notice that the embed links are all purple whilst typing. It default to blue after posting. Interesting choice of color there.​

    That may be for the best. Honestly I'm shocked I'm awake at this hour to even tinker around with it. Thus far though I like it. Right now though Iv'e got my own stuff to take care of. Need to fashion a quick bracket for Batosai for when he begins Crapnuary Elimination Game. Somehow doing that slipped past the two of us. Good thing I got all this time to do it now :p

    I knew this was coming, and it still sp00ped me when I logged on.

    Just as Vlad did, I changed my date and time settings, although I may have ruined some of the fun by clocking my PC to 1AM today, I guess I triggered the New Years theme?

    Anyhow, a wonderful list of features, to be sure. Also, that logo is damn sexy.

    One thing to be said about the style is the lining -- I've noticed that the lining is missing in some areas that would conventionally have it. It's not a big issue, as I've only seen it twice. However, it brought about an idea. These lacking lines look appealing -- I think, to push this simplistic theme a bit further, in addition to making the site more appealing, we can remove some of these lines, yes?

    Great work, Potato.

    I was going for it but I did not want to take the risk as some users want to see a dividing line. You did great pointing that out!

    It looks nice!

    Is there any way to disable the Kami alerts?
    It gets annoying if I don't wanna open my pm right away.
    But besides that, it looks real nice!

    What colour is that?
    And who is elligible?

    Wow I didn't even notice the dividing lines or break in them. Consider me blind everyone. Good job spotting that @Ddos_Dragon

    Great Job Cray Cray! The only issue I have is the misalignment of the search bar if it was fully on the logo banner that would be fine with maybe a 2-5px indent left from the banners right edge, perfect but other than that, I guess I'll check back thru-out the day to see if I get any of those Easter eggs though i'm never lucky with that stuff.

    So far I like the day night cycle, but I do have one question: Does this get rid of the other themes? I liked to rotate between themes to change things up without it having to be an event or site wide thing.

    I imagined this music playing now when I see the new theme:


    The only slight oddity I will mention is that I am not used to seeing posts without borders. Same for the forum sections itself.
    Oh, and the default text being white may force me to change my default color to something else.
    I dunno what color now. =P

    I'm liking the minimalist look. The background color is actually easier on my eyes. The new logo is very cool. The day/ night feature is a keeper. So far, everything is looking good.

    I know the theme is minimalistic, so in comparisons to what I am used to, it looks incomplete.
    It's not bad, just something I have yet to adjust to.

    I am liking it, just trying to readjust to blue instead of green.

    Only one as of right now and correct me if I'm wrong it's Kiri. As for how well ask spor :)
    I'll edit Kami so that she will go away after awhile.
    I will recreate the colored themes using this as a base since it will be the new default if everything is well received.
    Welp that's two for the search bar!

    @Ddos_Dragon, I agree with less lines all around. I believe it would give the site an even cleaner, more streamlined look. Yeah, it would take some getting used to, but just imagine how it would look.

    @Crazy Potato, maybe move the search bar down to the space underneath the logo banner. And also , maybe move the top bar where our names and alerts are in that same area, under the logo banner. Both in line on the right side, across from where it says 'New Posts". Or on the stationary bar when you scroll. Just a thought
