All of the tags are literally right above the text box. And in regards to the preview button, we shouldn't have to cater in every way to the lowest, laziest denominator

You could always install an Adblocker!
Problem is, that is not always allowed by the site's TOS and will ban those who use such extensions (mainly to ensure they make enough money).

Nobody has ever or will ever be banned from this site for using an ad blocker, and I don't think anything about that is mentioned in any TOS (the only TOS that I know of on this site is the one you agree to when registering a forum account). I also have never and will never make decisions related to banning users for the purpose of financial gain.

That's nice to know because the Chrome browser on my laptop had a built in adblocker, but now because my laptop is potentionally dead from a spill, I'm using my Wii's Internet Channel, which doesn't have an adblocker. So even if the use of an adblocker was prohibited on this site, I wouldn't have to worry about getting banned.

Most of the time I get ads, but they're never PC related because I'm not on a PC, they're either TV show ads, Nintendo ads, book ads, or no ads, because my Wii's browser uses Adobe Flash Lite 3.0, and some elements don't always load, and it's almost always ad elements.

RE: more board styles

For anyone interested in creating new styles, download this zipped folder which contains all the images you can to replace as well as a text file for specifying additional color changes. Feel free to send something to me and I can take a look.

That's why I asked. Because I'm doubting to make non-Mario theme. :lol:

Tiny change, but the arrows in the page number selection here on the forums just changed to an arrow icon from SMB3, didn't they? That's pretty cool.

Yep, I changed that and the jump button before sending out the zipfile of theme materials. Also, for those who haven't noticed, the yellow hover color was changed to a deeper yellow for nearly all links on the SMBX site.

If by non-Mario you mean Metroid, Zelda, Pokémon, or some other game, then yes. If you meant something more like prosilver or an otherwise generic board theme, then no.

Yeah, I've noitched the jump and arrows are different, and they look pretty cool! Also, why exactly did you change the yellow color?

The old yellow was a Redigit color that may not have actually existed in any Mario game. The new color is found on the SMB3 star in SMBX, and it looks better.

It does look better, and it's a bit more visible.

Anyways, there's a lot of icons on the site which don't make much sense to me and I believe should be changed, like:

The chat icon should be replaced with something like the SMW message box. Also, since pretty much everyone uses Discord by now, there's not much point in the IRC anymore, better to just have it replaced with a link to the discord server.

Most of the icons in the drop down quick links are the same, which can cause confusion, and I belive this should be changed.

The dead Mario with the edit button should be replaced with something else, like the Mario Paint cursor. Also, the delete icon is just an X, and I think it should be styled like the edit and quote buttons with the Mario Paint eraser.

I also think the site should use more custom icons rather than just SMAS/SMW sprites, since there's a lot of clash, and a lot of the icons aren't very descriptive, and having things like custom SMB3 sprites would help.

@Snessy the duck: All icons used in this theme belong on SMBX, since this is an SMBX forum. Having non-SMBX icons in this theme wouldn't make sense. Of course, they might look better that way, but that wouldn't do much honor to SMBX.

Well, the difference on the yellow is so tiny that I don't even notice any difference.

The jump arrows are really cool. And yeah, I already mentioned the suggestion of replacing the dead Mario icon

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

The Mario Paint icon and Eraser and SMW Message Box are in SMBX. Also, I think the site could use some more CGFX since that's actually a large part of SMBX if you think about it. Also, the new jump icon is custom, so there's that.

Extremely minor thing, but would it be possible to make banned users not show up in the default members list, and you can only find them specifically by looking under banned users?
