There seems to be an error with formatting with the subcategories on game boards or category extension boards. When there's enough subcategories under a certain criteria, the boxes don't properly format, like shown here: https:/​/​prnt.​sc/​o5qj6k

Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but I’d like to see the ability to jump to different pages within threads (and forums) again. Right now, if I don’t click on the last page in a thread from the forum page, I have to either click through page by page, go back to the forum and click the last page or manually change the URL.

Not something that comes up often as threads usually don’t get more than a few pages long, but for some of these Site threads they can get kinda lengthy. Not a big deal, just something I used a lot as a convenience.

I've made a thread about some encoding problem with the apostrophe character some months ago but it's still not fixed.
Since this thread is about feedbacks and bugs it's a good time for a reminder in case you missed it 🙂.
The categories with this encoding issue weren't displayed in the WR history graph so since you're working on new graphs, it would be nice if you could fix that at the same time: https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​The_Site/​thread/​x9ekk
Thanks.

@FitterSpaceFitterSpace
you can add this css code to give it a bit more contrast

body.dark .nav-tabs .nav-link {
background-color: #191919 !important;}

More of a bug report than anything else:

Edit Series does not have the proper theme page. Has trophies, and no option for a background.

Also for SMod users, Edit Series has no Moderators tab:

As an addition to the Series Moderator bug:
the Moderators page is available and works, it's just not showing on the menu.
( adding /moderators to the url as a workaround for now until fixed )

Whatever you're doing now allows this to happen: https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​thecave
Can't spot the problem? The top nav links are the exact same color as the nav bar. Instant fail.

While I appreciate your efforts, as someone who has been designing and building websites for over 20 years, I'd be very careful about giving users control over the UI.

I miss the button that used to be on the stream page that let me sort from lowest to highest viewers.

That's all.

Hopefully it can be updated to not require manually using custom css to bring back a thing that was lost to an update, yeah? 😃 I like (empty) because it notifies me to not click on something to see if it's empty or not.

I'm not sure if these have been suggested yet, but insofar as getting themes to work well on day mode: one way would be to let mods pick colors and backgrounds specifically for day mode and specifically for night mode. Another way would be putting a semi-transparent layer in front of backgrounds in day mode to lighten them, and creating lighten/darken functions to transform the chosen text colors for a game to be a more legible variant of themselves in a given mode (darker in day mode, lighter in night mode).

default should be night mode. the white and green not only looks bad, but is kind of blinding considering there aren't many things on the web page that arent also pure white. the reason youtube's white background works is because its also got other things on the page cluttering it from being blinding/ugly. idk. i feel as if the default should also show the custom background, it makes the leaderboard page more interesting to newcomers.

Now when I tried the Nightmode it doesn't show the names in green, but if whitemode should even exist you need to make the name colors visible. I don't mind the new DarkMode theme though, do whatever you want, I'm just glad if I can browse easily here.

Okay, why did "darkmode" become an emote, this is a new issue to me. Come on, we don't use them that often.

There's a design flaw with the Misc. menu. if you have a lot of Misc. categories (or in the Super Metroid ROM Hacks board's case, a lot of ROM hacks), you can't get access to the top category. It's behind the header.

Here, (2019) Ascent was recently added, but I cannot access it from the drop-down menu.

@CanadianOwlCanadianOwl at that point why do you even have it set up like this?
Firstly, you already have a series dedicated to adding hacks, so having them listed in a single game seems redundant,
Secondly, IF you're adding them all in one game, why not use the IL list, which is better suited for a list like this?

sure,
but I still kinda wanna know the reasoning behind using the least suited option.

@HowDenKingHowDenKing we chose this way because then we have the same mods for all romhacks rather than anyone being able to request, but also (and most importantly) because it groups all the romhacks under one heading in your profile rather than each romhack looking like a separate game, which is a lot cleaner for profiles that have a lot of romhacks. We trialled it by submitting runs to both a singular page and each individual page and afaik nobody disagreed with grouping them being better, so now all new hacks are added to the one page and we don't have to create any new game pages. Hope that answers your question.
