Neat update! However there appears to be a problem when I try to update my twitter name (blankd_ec) the underscore isn't accepted even though that is what it is.
I'll look into this in the next few days.

No email for me either, double checked all my folders on outlook. Also, it's just me or the theme changer was removed? I can't find it anywhere.
If you subscribe to this thread, do you get replies? I have been.

Right now, there's only the one theme, so there's no theme changer.

Tom why did you set the max. width just to 1366 ? With my 2560x1440 resolution I see now only the half of the "size" than before, which kinda sucks...
There are a couple of reasons. The first is that it actually leads to decent text readability. This is right about the limit of line lengths before the lines are just _too long_ for people to handle, and you start having to do things like turning your head over the course of reading a single line. So it feels right to wrap things, rather than to let the lines go on forever and ever and ever...

I picked 1366 because it's a fairly common resolution for laptop screens. My feeling is if someone with a large monitor composes a thread for 1366, it'll look good for just about everyone. Where if they compose their thread for 2560, it'll start looking bad on smaller screens.

I've been following this thread since the 2nd or 4th post and didn't get anything, strangely, I got an email at 14:44, about the 14 post (vollschauer posted at 12:15 following my utc, it's gmt-3), so the email came almost 3 hours late. If it helps, the last email I got from noreply@renai.us was 11 days ago, and I've been active answering and questioning since yesterday, so I was supposed to receive an email at least yesterday, right?

There seem to be issues with the Search function. I keep getting this message:
General Error

SQL ERROR [ postgres ]

ERROR: for SELECT DISTINCT, ORDER BY expressions must appear in select list LINE 6: ORDER BY t.topic_last_post_time DESC ^ []

An SQL error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact the Board Administrator if this problem persists.
Sometimes my search works, but other times, I get the above message.

One thing that is really odd is while I DO get e-mail notifications for when I receive a PM, they come a few hours LATE. For example, I got a PM past 4PM. I saw it because I was on the forum, and about 4 hours later THEN a notification for that PM's delivered to me.

Also, the YouTube field doesn't seem to work. I put the link to my channel and it says certain characters aren't accepted which is needed for the link.

Just sent it!

EDIT: Forgot to click that little expand arrow thing under the date, but all that does it make the date look and time look like this; Sat 7/22/2017 8:31 PM rather than saying Yesterday, 8:31 PM. And then shows To: my e-mail address, so nothing was missed without the expand.

Congrats for the new theme. I was honestly shocked when the theme hadn't been updated yet and all I got to see was the very basic phpbb forum lol. And I noticed the small changes you implemented in the next few hours. The theme is growing on me.

Questions/reports:
- I've had three times in the span of these two days when clicking "Your posts" only return the last four. I don't know what happened, perhaps my internet lagged at some point. But I had it refreshed once and it just returned those 4. Only after coming back to it later had I seen the complete list again. It never happened in the old theme, for me. Edit: Ah, what a coincidence. It happens again: http://i.imgur.com/oqHybAo.jpg

- I wonder if you'll ever give us the chance to change the font-family in the editor? Or rather, is it allowed in the BBcode?

- Will you ever implement "Thanks" button for forum posts? I like that, especially for the helpful ones.

- I'm not sure what to think about the washed out signature before I hover it. Nice and not distracting, I guess? But also makes some really good banners lack the pop?

I'm getting used to the new design already. :)

I was wondering, will there be an update to manage email notifications for subscribed topics? Since there's a new Notifications tab, is there a way to turn off subscribed topic email notifications, but keep the website notifications turned on?

Yes, I think there is a way. Head to the User Control Panel, go to Board Preferences then next, go to Edit Notification Options. From there, you can just check what you want to receive as an email or as a notification. Hope that helps :)

I like it is there any reason why profile pictures are on right side now? Or is it just theme?

I think it's just the theme, but I found it easier to read on the phone/PC.

It's the theme.

Fundamentally, the subsilver theme we had been using had reached its end of life a long time ago. We're now using a theme based on prosilver, the new default phpbb theme. A bunch of things are in different places, though I've tried to make things as close to subsilver as it could be for the effort I was willing to expend. I do think prosilver is the right choice, as it's still developed, and has things like responsive support for mobile devices.
