    Without it being too wordy here are the changes I think the forums should receive.
    • Update to Xenforo 2 has a lot more to offer and has a better mobile support, which I'm guessing most of like to browse the forums on.
    • If you are interested in seeing what's new in Xenforo 2 browse this page.
    Although updating to Xenforo 2 is not downright needed or urgent. However, it would make sense for it to happen along with Chronet 2.0 as its meant to introduce a lot of change.

    Next off change the theme of the Forums.
    • Many have described the desire they have for a Dark mode on the forums, and with this suggestion of mine, I believe both sides of the argument will compromise.
    • "UI.X" is a theme that I believe could be replacing our current theme.
    • It sticks to the Chronet's, principle of simplicity while achieving a New feel at the very same time.
    • It also includes a dark variant of the theme (which is separately sold sadly) which could be an option left for the user.
    • For Xenforo 2 here are the links to the theme: Light Variant and Dark Variant.
    • Alternatively, if we decide to stick with Xenforo 1 here are the links to the theme: Light Variant and Dark Variant.
    This Thread is open to criticism
    Thanks for taking your time to read this!

    We basically had this exact some conversation behind closed doors, Simple is wanting to update to Xenforo 2 but we're waiting for a plugin that we use to update to work with XF2.

    I'm pretty sure we are going to use UI.X also :)
