    Better yet, unlike non-flat themes
    they can be self-titled.

    Is there a way to get the "Daily Email Notifiction" feature back rather than "watch a forum", and receive a separate email every time when someone posts inside it?

    Better yet: could we have a preview of the watched forums in the linked page? Like, for each watched forum, show me 3 top or newest threads. Or a pop-up thread list. I have watched forums with no notifications because those are busy ones, but it would be nice to have something more than just a forum link page. Ideally, the watched forum link should produce a menu of forums, each with a submenu of a few new/top threads.

    I mean, if it could be done

    Any plans on bringing back the average daily post count?

    Kudos on the new look. I am actually digging it the more I use it. Very clean.

    Not wanting to be negative, loving the look, but! Why oh why do we have to have all the Phone, iPod, iPad, Apple Watch forums before the Macs ones? is this not a Mac forum anymore? Please bring in some tool to allow us to reorder the list. Or maybe you need to create an applespersonalgearrumors.com

    Does anyone know of an alternative to the [tIMG] tags on Xenforo?

    I don't think we need them as the XF auto sizes large images to fit the page.

    I would have liked that Retina screenshot to be quite a bit smaller, but instead it is being shown full size (keep in mind this is with the expanded width):

    If there is any way to fix this without turning the image into a simple link, I'd be happy to hear it.

    I think that's one for @arn to answer.

    Amen! Miss having the ability to review forums with newest first. Some threads get quite long and hard to find the newer posts.

    If I understand correctly, the plugin would be to optionally reverse the chronological order of posts within a topic.

    With or without reversing things in a topic, there's Go to First Unread – on each page, the button beneath the title, the button again near the foot of the page (screenshot below). That first item should be the ideal starting point for finding newer items.

    If instead you'd like to change the sort order of topics – with attention to the most recent topic – that's already possible in some interfaces. An example (in the area where you made most posts):

    Is there anyway to stop the red box with arrows from flashing on and off as I scroll up & down? Very distracting when trying to read.

    What software does MacRumors use for the forums? Sorry if I missed it somewhere inside the FAQ.

    Hello, is there any news for this? I use a dark theme for my whole OS (and Firefox!) so this would fit in nicely.
