I'm a bit busy :wink: but it looks good, maybe it's too dark, some parts might be perhaps more glossy, but probably it would be difficult to change it. Some avatars look too bright, not just mine, also your and DrDrrae's image in signature, but it's not a big problem.

The text is smaller than in default style, could be a bit larger, if possible. Text size in the quick reply field is OK

Forum rules field is grey, looks a bit annoying, red font color is bad readable.

AvantGuard and Support Staff names are very bad readable.

Online/offline image doesn't look good (transparency) and I found also a bug(?), check the screenshot.

Another problem might be using dark font colors, but the only solution is probably just removing all dark colors form the color list, but I think it's not needed.

Finally, most (new) smilies have a problem with transparency too. :( (this one is ok)

Unfortunately, dark styles bring out many minor imperfections in images. However, most of those can be easily fixed.

As per the AvantGuard and Support Staff names, there really isn't much we can do about that unless we change their colors across all styles.

The rest of your suggestions will be taken into consideration.

It's not the same, you have to point to Search, then to My Posts / Active Topics. But this is not so important.

Most important for me now it's the font size.

BTW I see, some smilies have been changed, thanks. :wink:
