    The forum is looking like its a mafia styled forum for underground gang members....

    Just kidding this looks like a '10 forum with an old & unchangable design.

    I think its time you think about it as a forum that host a lot of people & their business.
    I have seen people having website that are amazing and easy to browse. Also you might add a few tweaks & some badges & other stuff to earn something extra off sellers to maintain and keep it growing.

    Make sure you have Lite & dark version available that will let users decide which they want to go with.

    I sincerely want to ask why the theme of a forum designed to make you money is a problem. humor me?

    For matters of web accessibility, like to help people who are color blind. The black theme scores very high on contrast ratio.

    If they were changes I hoped for. One would be a way to mark forums that are off limit to newbies visually so I know I can look but not touch. I recently got an infringement warning for responding to a thread I wasn't supposed to and I still feel bummed about it even though it's my fault for not reading the rules.

    Another change I would like is markdown typing. It would make typing for me a bit better tbh, I like how reddit incorporate the changes allowing you to switch between markdown and normal HTML.

    If the newsletter could be personalised to include content from watched forums, that would be fantastic. I know this could be challenging but it could be packaged as a paid member benefit to offset some technical costs.

    It would be awesome if the lounge could have a live chat area, so I don't get to see topics such as "how many sex partners you had recently" sandwiched between the front page. I swear I've seen even more absurd topics make it to the frontpage. I deduce that sometimes, people just crave that human connection but I feel creating a thread just for the purpose of talking to someone is too much.

    Allow us edit our posts. Yes this is so way back. I'm surprised we've not had a revolt about this. Like seriously guys!

    In the end I know nothing. But I know I like the default black theme.

    I actually like the format. Easy to read and works very well. Why change perfection?

    It's clearly and simple for now, I like it and I wouldn't change anything to be honest.

    Just wanted to post this would be awesome. Maybe 200 or so instead of 50?

    Infinite or just more would be great

    First they need to update their Android app, it's terrible; you can't open links, you can't view images in full size, Very difficult to browse forum sections, sometimes you see the Alerts button off in the Threads title...

    There is no official BHW App.

    Whatever you are using is not BHW's.

    Who cares about visual when you come for content.

    Is like saying Google front page is stupid because have a logo and a search bar.

    This is seo forum not deviant art ladies and few gents.

    Call me old fashioned,
    But I love the way it looks, plus it's easy to navigate,
    although that could just be because I'm still new here & not an OG 2010 member
