This is like that level 4 Big World in Super Mario Bros 3.
I'm down for a change.

I took screencaps to prove that yeah definitely looks bigger but you actually see the same amount of posts or threads on the screen, so I'm a buffoon. I guess it's less cluttered which gives the impression that it's bigger.

I think you need a darker color to provide some contrast, but other than that: thank you Fearless Leader Natas

I prefer the current design, and believe that all of the changes to the functionality can be incorporated into the current design.

I will probably add a "classic mode" to my extension if these changes take effect.

view faved is replacing view your posts, right? so i to follow a thread i can favorite it w.o having to post, but also posting doesn't act as a fave?

no, there's more (not necessarily in any order, though I tried to put more important ones toward the top):

1. omission of "view your posts"

2. omission of all search functionality.

3. dropdowns do not disappear on click outside, which deviates from the general public's subconscious understanding of how dropdowns work.

4. in general, the new header provides a less streamlined user experience than the current navbar, since it requires multiple clicks to get anywhere.

5. inability to navigate straight to a specific page on mobile. Every time I open a thread, I will be forced to go straight to the first page, and then have to navigate to the last (or second-to-last) page from there.

6. inability to see "last post" info on mobile

7. Omission of "members" link, which takes user to list of members.

8. Omission of "The team" section; I think it's important that users are able to find the list of mods/admins in case they need to reach out and ask for something like a username change or to be wiped, to report the behavior of another boarder, or to pester them about their design choices.

9. Omission of "who's online" section

10. new header/sidebar menu looks like I'm ordering food from grubhub or something, and even though it may seem more sleek/modern than the current design, I
personally like that hipinion is currently a sort of break from how the internet is usually designed nowadays.

11. using relative or less precise date formats such as "1 min ago" or "Jul 28", as opposed to the current, more precise format: "Thu Jul 30, 2020 3:11 pm"

12. dividers between rows is white, which does not provide as strong of a visual division as the current dark blue divider

13. lack of border for list of topics

14. Threads do not turn yellow on hover

15. lack of dividers between columns for each topic

no, nathan told me there will be a separate "fave" functionality, where users can fave threads. view your posts was omitted.

why would that have any tie to oauth? it's just a way to tuck away stuff you don't need to see on every pv

and yeah btw this is completely about the forum/topic view, most of the functionality outside of that is untouched

faved is posts you frequent but maybe don't even post in
hidden is posts you don't want to see, including stickies

view your posts is easy enough to add quickly so you can see

i was just yanking your chain about the oauth because "avatar inside of circle" is a common design choice on the kind of website that you'd auth into with google or whatever.
