Iím stuck on the mobile version of the site and canít go back to the web browser version.
Am I the only one experiencing this issue or is there any way to correct this ?

Why is there no option that shows the sales of all games combined anymore with the new design?

Why can't we look at the how much a game sold per year with the new design?

These are two reasons why I prefered the old design. With the new design we have lost a lot good features on this site.



Checked the numbers for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Still undertracked by about 45,000 units according to official Nintendo data.

Some days I just blow up.

Is there any chance of a possible dark mode for the forum?

@TruckOSaurus

That one's for you too

Well, as I've admitted time and again (and I'll do it again, because well - it's the truth, and it is what it is!!) - I have no skills when it comes to making things "pretty" or creating "eye candy". I'm a database and functionality developer by trade, and that's where my expertise lies - so when it comes to things like creating graphics, toying with formatting, or in this case, coming up with coloring schemes - it's just not in my wheelhouse, and I've got no real interest in even trying...

 

...that said - if YOU want to spec out what the coloring scheme should be and how a thread would appear when in "dark" mode, I'd be MORE than happy to implement!! In the past, Brett's brother was always good at mocking up web pages (photoshop or some other graphical tool) and I would then take that mockup and build the code needed to run on the website. If you or anyone else around here is skilled enough to come up with a "dark" mockup of what things should look like, I assure you I can build. But, if you're asking me to dream it up on my own - we're dead before we start. :(

Happened to notice the "mention" function doesn't work, when it's used the way @Carl just did (ie. using the mention, followed immediately by line breaks) - I think it's fixed, just testing now...

 

 

Edit: Yup - it's working now!! :)

I've got a few ideas and do a lot of 2D work when not working on characters. I'll come up with an idea, but maybe get someone with a little more 2D work under the belt to actually create the them (perhaps Raven).

Like I said - I'm MORE than happy to develop an alternate .css file and giving users the option to use. I just need the specs to make it so...



And by the way - I also have absolutely NO SHAME in stealing a design from another website!!! So, if there's one out there that has a "dark mode" that you guys think would fit, I'd have no problem stealing their .css layout and implementing here! ;)

...any good coder knows - it's always better to steal somebody else's code, rather than reinventing the wheel. :)
