    Are you thinking that it directs you to a subforum-style section, or a section that looks like the forum index? for example, if we had MKW have its own section like you suggested, it could either take you to a) a section that looks like the forum home and has categories, like "Wiimmfi League", "Game Discussion" etc. or b) a section that's just a subforum with all of MKW's subforums in it

    imo, categories should only be on the forum index

    - Moved Mario Kart Legacy into its own category
    - Split the Media Center into 4 subforums: MKWii Official Media, MK7 Official Media, MK8 Official Media, and MK8DX Official Media.

    @Nozzles made various changes to the themes, so hopefully he'll make a post on all the changes he's made

    As of July 14, 2017

    - Light Themes:

    - Removed transparency from the background, replaced with a light grey color
    - Re-colored text in multiple areas where readability was low (work in progress)
    - Added a darker border around posts to prevent lighter colors from clashing together


    - Dark Themes:

    - MKBoards Dark Theme now features it's own background of MK8's N64 Rainbow Road
    - The previous MKBoards Dark Theme can now be found as a new theme: Dark (SNES Rainbow Road)
    - Removed transparency from the background, replaced with a black color
    - Re-colored text in multiple areas where readability was low (work in progress)
    - Changed header / footer bars from light blue to dark grey to better match dark themes.
    - Added a lighter border around posts to prevent darker colors from clashing together
    - Changed the color of the box in "Watched Threads" from white to black



    - Universal:

    - Minor padding adjustments
    - Small box-shadows can now be found in various places, such as around the forum list and in the new posts on the sidebar.
    - Widget tabs on the sidebar have been adjusted to all be on one line instead of stacked




    - New Theme:

    - My personal project "MKBoards Night" has now been released
    - This is a non-Mario Kart related dark skin with a space theme.


    - Future Changes:

    - Will continue to make adjustments to colors of text to make sure everything is legible on any theme of your choosing
    - Will continue to make padding adjustments
    - Potential for changes to prefixes and banners based on community opinion.



    These changes have happened over the course of the past month or so, so some of these are old news; but they were never actually announced so here they are!

    I think that covers the majority of what I have done, so far. Am always open for additional opinion and suggestion.

    Could you make it so that when editing a post the image still embeds, currently it just does this which is kind of annoying

    although the Users Viewing Thread names at the top are a bit big on the Night theme if you can fix that to match the rest I'd be very happy

    I already replied to you on Discord; but as an update and so everyone else knows, Stunky will either be sending me higher quality MKW images or replacing the backgrounds himself. They should be changed to higher-quality images in the near future (we'll both be busy/gone this weekend).

    Unfortunately, I'm not really sure on how to do that, I only know design aspects at this time. @BetoMan or, even though she just stepped down @Savannah , may be able to hep you (or me) with that.

    It should be changed now.

    Made / Making several changes to "MKBoards Plain Dark" theme.

    Always kinda felt like the light blue clashed very badly with the dark grey/black colors, so the blues have become darker to better mesh.
    Hopefully this will be a little bit easier on the eyes. If not, very easily to revert back to how it was.

    Not done with it yet, probably, there always seems to be random things that I missed.
