ANNOUNCEMENT Welcome to the new forums!

The new forum has a good presentation. The menus as well as the design and contrast of the orange, grey and black colours were an excellent choice that made it easier to read and search. Thanks to the web design team.
I was so happy to hear about the new forum. The first thing I thought was: they'll change the colour scheme! No more black with white text.
Thank God. I love them. They have finally answered my prayers. Everything is better now. Then I loaded it up....

Arrrrrrgggggghhhhhhhh! My eyes!!!!!!!!!!! MY eyes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Noooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hello Commanders,

Welcome to the new and improved Frontier Forums! We're so happy to have you here! Everything is now live and running on XenForo. All of our game forums are now together on one platform, and there are some great new features and improvements!

Here’s what you can expect from the new forums:

New Forum Features
  • Native mobile support with a responsive theme
  • New forum trophies
  • The developer tracker!
  • Personal news feed - follow your friends to see what they're up to!
  • A modern-day WYSIWYG editor
  • Native Two-Factor support
  • Post reaction system - replaces the vBulletin reputation system
  • Push Notifications - get notified in seconds on your mobile or desktop
  • Rich link previews.
  • Post & Thread bookmarking
  • Auto-embed of social posts. Just place the URL in your post, boom - it's embedded!
  • Basic video upload and auto-embed support (limited to MP4, WEBM and OGG currently)
  • Sidebar widgets (on the right side)
  • Inline spoilers. When you tab or click on the text, it'll de-spoiler!
Here's a couple of features that are changing slightly on Xenforo (though the functionality/use remains the same!)

Reputation on vBulletin does not exist as reputation on XenForo. Basically, reputation on the old forums has now been converted into post likes.

Smilies from the previous vBulletin are not included on Xenforo, as it natively supports emoticons.

Where is my signature picture?
XenForo does not support directly uploaded signature pictures. You will need to host the images elsewhere and then use the image function in the editor to link to them to your profile.

Why are attachments missing from various posts?
Numerous attachments that have not had any recent views have been removed from the attachments database. Attachments take up a huge portion of our forum storage, so we took this opportunity to clean up a little!

If you have any feedback about the new forums, or any changes we have made to older sections, please feel free to reply here with your thoughts. Should you have any other questions, we're around to help you ASAP!

Thank you so much for bearing with us through this process; we are so excited about the new look and feel of everything. We hope you find your new home just as welcoming as they should be.
How do I opt out of the stupid forum 'awards'.
It is a long, long time since I was five years old - at least phsically, if not mentally.
I find these sort of things rather patranoising - and somewhat demeaning.
YVMV of course.
Here's a style I made for the dark parts. Note that it breaks the light parts.
html {
    font-family: Roboto,Oxygen,Ubuntu,Cantarell,'Fira Sans','Droid Sans',sans-serif;

.structItemContainer {
    background: #222;

.structItem-title {
    font-weight: 100;

.message-body {
    font-family: Calibri;
    font-size: 14px;

.block--messages .message {
