    Will I finally lose 1 Reputation Comment in my notifications?
     
  2. How about no?

    - politics are discussed on the forum and I've seen plenty of political statements in signatures. Why would they be banned in avatars?
    - we have a thread for posting selfies and are allowed to post them in our profile photos. Why would that be not allowed in a custom avatar?

    I agree on the rest but it's likely not something you needed to bring up. I doubt the mods would ever allow discrimination on the forum so....

    Will I get to keep my trademark Scizor avatar? That's all I need to know.

    Beautiful. The forums are becoming extremely outdated and it's great they'll get an updated look. Hoping the site gets its 2018 revamp soon too!

    I remember that one time we were allowed custom avatars that were 1x1 pixels. Good times, now that I'm like ten years older than I was at the time.

    Anyway, I'd like to see Fake Card Fan Card Designs or however you want to word it come back, since I've been working on some TCG projects (mostly MTG because I don't know what's up in the world of Pokemon cards anymore really), but I imagine that's a long shot because lol that stuff would not get much activity.

    This is the internet. I'm more concerned about people posting pornographic avatars than confrontational ones.

    Btw is there a way to hide the notice at the top of the page after reading it? It kind of bothers me xD

    And will we still be able to use bb code in visitor messages?

    I wonder if there will be fancier skin choosing choices on the new and improved serebii forums? XD
     
  9. Well, this seems pretty exciting! I’ve been anticipating the idea of custom avatars for a while norm so the fact that it’s finally happening - a couple of days after my birthday, no less - is awesome. I can imagine that custom avatars will have to be at least slightly moderated - some above users gave examples - but most people here will surely know the rules and so it won’t become too much of an issue.

    As for the other upgrades, I’m excited, but I’m just hoping that the format and layout of the forums won’t be too different so I can still find my way around it. I also hope that bbcode is still used on our next website of residence, otherwise I am screwed.

    Edit: I have a question. Even if we move to another forum system, will the bookmark shortcut for the site that I made still directly link to this site or will I have to redo it?

    It will still work. Joe is also moving to a new domain though, so I would recommend updating your bookmark eventually. Although maybe the redirect will stay up forever.
     
  11. Will we be able to edit our own thread titles? Right now I think only mods can do it.

    Extremely excited for the change to XenForo, this forum software is very outdated and XenForo is a platform that has many many options

    SilverLanayru It's a mystery.

    Well, as a long time lurker, I’m looking forward to these changes. :] Ohhh how long I’ve waited for the day when custom avatars will finally be a thing. Nonetheless, I’m fairly excited for what’s to come post-transition!

    So, I guess it is going to XenForo, then? Makes sense, I suppose. I don't know what (if anything) has been planned as far as forum themes/styles/whatever, but is there going to be a dark theme option? Most XenForo's I've glanced over use default skins that are bright white, and that's very hard for me to look at if there isn't an alternative.

    Long overdue! Excited to see what it looks like, hopefully this'll breathe a bit of life into the forums for a while.

    We only have one theme going right now, it is dark, but hopefully in the future we'll have some more choices.

    Can we also do away with sig limitations (within reason) mostly the sig and gif limitations?

    It made sense from 04 to about 09 when there was a ton of lag here but in 2018 where almost everyone has high speed internet or the option to turn on auto loading images, there's no reason to have a limited of 500kb for gifs or horizontal picture limited of 600 pixels when your forum post itself it longer then that. Or counting things in spoilers when you need to click it first

    A lot of old rules seemed to be made with old school internet in mind

    That's fine. As long as there's something dark out of the gate, I'm happy. ^^

    Is the color scheme similar to the default skin on here? Just curious :)

    It uses green, but overall I would say it's not very similar.
