Will check back in a couple of weeks then, as it is right now.. I find the forum unusable (too much information in too whacky places with too many 'spiffy' features that imo just obscure content).
If you want to bounce the ball in regards to themes, I have done some minor style integration and forum design.. I definitly don't see myself as an expert (or even a proffessional) in this field, you can have my opinion regarding theme styles if you so wish. I'm sure my account has my e-mail data
feel free to use it to contact me regarding this matter.
As for the pop-ups disappearing too fast: had that aswell, though now they linger... but having to manually close 20 pop-ups per page gets tedious before you even finish =\
I don't want to see it at all, but for those who do, it needs to be tweaked to only generate a pop-up once, and probably only for topics you want notifications of.. or they become unmanageable in numbers (too many to read in the timespan, too many to close manually.. no good compromise possible because the time it takes for someone to read it depends on so many things).
