    If you would like to send me a private message about why they are bias and why I shouldn't let people have four choices rather two because two would have been too simple and I wanted specifics, then please do. This is not the place to discuss this.

    Being able to tag categories under which threads could be put seems like a good idea. It would help make things more searchable. And definitely a dark theme. I've always found reading or writing largeish sections of text with a white background to be draining.

    @Strugglesaurus and I would also like to see some kind of "flair" option for groups, which would show which group(s) you're part of and can be turned on and off for those who wish to keep it more private. Also, maybe an option for the admins of the group to award flair as the members complete certain objectives, for more competitive or goal driven groups. We think it would add more incentive to join and work as an advertisement to get involved with the groups on the forum.

    Please, @alexander. I would like to see an in-house NoFap counter.

    Would the wonderful Jack 'NoPanic' Fischer be able to do it? I don't like the fact that Google has it's grubby little paws on our porn and masturbation counters. Secondly, whenever anyone asks for a helpful adjustment, nothing can be done. It is time to provide a bespoke service with the options and design features that the members want.

    I don't know ho I feel about private groups, if you want to hide the fact that yo joined a group that's fine with me, but I would like to see all the groups within the nofap website, thus no invisible groups.

    Please, @alexander, I would love to start/have private conversations with more than one participant. Can't find the "add more"-button even though "Allow anyone in the conversation to invite others" box has been checked. Am I missing something?

    Thanks!

    Hey bub, never mentioned invisible groups. Just invisible group flair. Being able to turn the flair on or off is what I was saying.

    @alexander. Please mate, I have been asking for 5 months for changes to the site to make it easier and more enjoyable to use to use. I know you are busy, but it doesn't seem like anything has been implemented. Just to clarify, I got the ball rolling on March 31, but loads of members of chipped in with good ideas and it doesn't look to me as if anything has changed. :(

    Here is what we have so far with the designer, but I think it doesn't solve the issues so we're still working on it. Note that the menus and links aren't finalized. Nothing is finalized. Right now trying to make it more readable.

    But why has it been 5 months? There is still no mention of the glossary on there. It is very deflating. :(

    The menus aren't finalized, they're placeholders and very easy to change. They'll include a glossary link, along with other helpful links. As for the duration of the changes, that's due to my own shortcomings and the number of things on my plate. For example, I've been swamped this month with a TV segment featuring several members of our community. I need more hands or way more time! Working on being more effective and hopefully things will happen quicker in the future, but I am just a human. Also had many personal things to deal with for about one of those months.

    I can say that as of two months ago (3 months after forum software change), it was delegated to a designer to help. They estimated it would take a month but clearly it is taking longer. I don't know why and followed up recently. Once they have an ETA, I'll share it here.

    Don't wanna get people excited but our main designer is saying that the new mock-up will be ready by the end of this week. Looking forward to seeing what they came up with, and will post it here for feedback before implementing it.

    Any chance he "mocked-up" a working group feature?

    Sun Bro is going to be running a test group called "Heirs of the Sun". If all goes well, I'll open it up for everybody soon. I have a lot on my plate.

    Looks like a nice flat modern design. Like @hopefullynotfappin asked, is there any chance of an optional dark theme?
