I just zoomed to 175% on my laptop while reading chamekke's post (right before I got to the part about him/her zooming in)! I like the purple, but black would improve legibility. This site is way better now that I've zoomed in. It was hurting my eyes ;)

I always keep this site zoomed, and now I have to admit that zooming works better--less overlapping text within too-small boxes when I zoom the lists of topics.

But still, zooming is just easier.

Another suggestion: if the 'contact' speech bubble thing on each post worked, that'd be a nice feature!
Thanks for the welcome :) That bubble should be working now.

Thank you for working to make improvements!

Would you please comment on photos? Are there plans to allow larger photos? That would really enhance the quality and content of TeaChat!

The diminutive pixel size and hassle formatting images to get to fit has always been a sticking point with TeaChat. Thank you.

p.s. What are the chances another color could be substituted for pale purple?

Hiya. I don't have an answer for you yet on the photos, but I'll do some investigative work tomorrow morning and get back to you! :D

As for the forum color, I'm afraid that the pale(r) purple is here to stay.

any chance of making it just a little darker?
say #303030 instead of #505050 ?

On mobile, I cannot open private messages at all. I was able to open a new one, but after I viewed it and tried to go back to it, there's no link or anything so I can see my messages...

Hey there--I've submitted a request to our developer to address this issue. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

Can we please get the chat back? I know it didn't work terribly well, but it was the main reason I used to visit the forum on a regular basis.

What was also most helpful previously is that topics with new and unread post were colour-marked differently.
that visual clue is now completely missing.

Same issue goes for the "Stickie” posts on top.
Now it takes longer to catch on where new post start and where the stickies on top end.

Thanks!
