Changing av using gravatar

When I change my av via gravatar, it doesn't immediately update on this page. BUT, if I click on my profile, the av is changed? I've tried closing and reopening the browser, which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. Weird.

I believe it's a cache issue with Gravatar. It eventually changes in 15 minutes or so.

suggestion: (first post = complaint!) change of the background color to something dark/easier on the eyes. unless there's a way to change that for myself.

otherwise, great board, how did i never know this board existed.

We've had a light background for years...

I could add a dark theme, I suppose. Problem would be you'd lose mobile functionality on a new theme, or I'd need to pay more cash for this theme again in a different color scheme.

Going on 30 minutes today.

When in a thread, I prefer to have the newest reply at the top. (Page 1) There was a setting for that in the preferences before. Is it gone or am i not looking in the correct place?

If you go to What's New (or on a topic with unread posts), and click on a topic with new posts, it should jump you to the first unread post. Is that not happening?

It does happen, however there was an option to make the first post on the last page. I'm not sure if I'm explaining it correctly. Page 1 at the top when I went to a thread would be the newest.

Whilst trying to change my av, an error message says there is a problem with the server. I've been using small jpg files, so that shouldn't be a problem.
