If you've not caught on quite yet, IDB's gotten itself a bit of a makeover! We've been scurrying around behind the scenes to get you guys FOUR, that's right four, new styles to customize your banting experience.

The first is our new default, which we've lovingly named "Blue Galaxy". Much like ye olde orange Galaxy layout, this one's a bit more space-y, a bit more purple-y, and just the kind of "2.0" we wanted to remind you that, much like the never-ending cosmos, our bants are forever. :sparkle:

Image

We also had to pay homage to Dan and Phil's obsession with all things pastel, by offering you a "DAPG" layout. Love Easter colors? Is the gaming channel your favorite because they actually upload consistently? This one's for you!

Image

The time's are a'changin' for Phil stans too! Not only are we heralding in the quiff, we're also giving you "Phil 2.0". It's modern. It's flat. And it features Phil's favorite color: money green!

Image

And finally, as on-brand as always, we're offering you a second dank and dark layout: "Dan 2.0". But, much like the flair of Dan's sparkly black backpack, if a topic's unread, it'll twinkle!

Image

Worry not, though. We know that change can be hard, so we're keeping all of the old layouts around for a bit so you can try out these new ones and find one you like at your own pace!

As a reminder, to change your layout, go to the control panel, select "Board preferences" and "Edit global settings", and choose from the "My board style" dropdown. As always, if you have any questions or issues, feel free to contact anyone on the Moderator Team.

Also: if you can't see any changes - try a hard refresh in your browser! Mac users can hit command+shift+R and PC users can hit ctrl + F5. That should do the trick. :thumb:

That's not all though!! With just 3 easy paym- Er, I mean... Alongside all of these changes, we've also brought in...

a full revamp to our ranks!

See all the changes to the IDB ranks here.

And finally... is typing "indepthbants.com" too long, too boring, a waste of your precious time?

We get it.:shyhug: That's why, starting today, you can get to IDB via 2 NEW URLS!

deppy.fun and deppy.site :newyear:

So there ya go, folks! And no, we promise this isn't an April Fool's Joke. It's March 31st for a reason. :wink:

This was a work of love and a lot of long evenings from the entire mod team. I couldn't be more thankful for working with these awesome folks and for you all for coming back to this forum every day. So, enjoy!

And let us know if you have any questions/concerns/excitement/feels/rage/apathy! :love2:

As one of the new members of the team, I want to echo how amazing it is to work with all the lovely mods! :lilheart: And, as someone who's had a sneak peek, I can't even decide which new layout I like best!

Yay for themes! I've been using Dan 2.0 for a few days and love it, but there's a couple of things that I've noticed. Do you want feedback here? Or would you prefer privately in some way?

Either way is fine! If you're more comfortable you can PM me, but here is okay, too. Some things are beyond our ability to change, but we're definitely happy to hear thoughts.

Cool! It's just tiny things that you might not notice until you've used it for a while. This is for Dan 2.0:

-The page number you're on is not highlighted in any way, so it's difficult to know on witch page of a thread you are on. I switch a lot between mobile and desktop so this has annoyed me a bit.
- The text seems to be always in bold, which means that I can't see when a poster have bolded something for emphasis. It's also slightly more difficult to read than regular style.
- The top banner doesn't seem to link to the front page on desktop. You can always reach it through the breadcrumbs but I always click the banner by instinct.

That's it! :)

I know this is a super delayed response, but we've definitely got these top of mind and are working on the fix. Should be out... soon-ish. :thumb:

Sup pals, just passing by to say that the danisnotonfire theme has the halloween style name on top, and the galaxy theme doesn't even have a top banner.

The halloween banner on the dinof theme is something I left partly out of laziness, and partly because I prefer it to the standard dinof header. I can change it if folks want, no issue.

The galaxy theme has a new event-related header - if it isn't showing up, you may need to ctrl+F5 to see the new header.
