I'm going to be messing with the look of thing for the first few days or weeks of this being up, so please bear with me. If there's anything you'd like to see such as additional boards, please let me know.

Is there a dark mode plugin for phpbb? Dark Reader doesn't seem to play well. Maybe there is a setting or color scheme I should use.

You can set your own theme from the ones that are installed. There is a dark one in there I was messing with. Go to Profile->Modify Profile->Look And Layout

Nice! Found it. I was looking for a drop down but it was at the very top hidden plain sight.

Would an LFG PC/GM Topic be good or just start a thread in General?

We do not seem to have a formatting code for spoilers. This could be nice for hiding stuff like document changelogs. I beleive SMF allows customization/addons, is this something that can be added through those?

This was mentioned in my "Greetings" message, however I thought it might be worthy to post here as well.

Might it be useful to have some sort of "Welcome" or "Introduce Yourself" sub-folder within the General Folder, specifically for new users to say hello? I have no idea how much use these forums will see (Though I am optimistic), so it might help keep the General board "Tidier" in the long run.

Just a thought.

If there is a spoiler in the above post that we are supposed to be able to open up, I'm only seeing a gray bar with the text, "Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents".

For some reason there is a permission to view spoilers and its default is off. Should be fixed now.

Bear with me as I get email notifications working. Setting up SMTP outgoing only is more problematic than I thought. You may have gotten some test emails in your spam folder, but they will be from my personal email  :D please disregard for now.
