New Year, New Something Something

Suddenly, NEW THEME APPEARS! We know that the recently-launched 'new' SSMB theme ended up breaking the moment IPB released a new version, so instead of trying to fix it I donned my designer's hat and decided to start again from scratch, on a new future-proof (I HOPE) set of skins. Welcome to SSMB, 2016!

As you can see, this is the new 'Sonical' theme. It's very blue, isn't it? And it has that adorable classic Sonic smiling/sneering at you at the top of the page there. Nice. I also made sure that this theme works in most browsers, devices and screen sizes (although WiiU for some reason has this odd bug that only affects the homepage - we think it has something to do with the dynamic widgets embedded in the page, and are looking to IPB for a fix - every other page is fine so if you're somehow able to make your way onto a forum or topic on WiiU you're good as gold).

That's not all. Every week on Sunday for the next couple of weeks we'll be releasing new character versions of this theme. Two Foxy will be released next Sunday. Oooh, exciting! Enjoy the new look SSMB, you guys. And a happy (belated) new year to you all!

Sweet! Can wait for Tails' and Vector's themes to return :D

The new theme looks nice as a whole and the new colors are visually pleasant, but I think my favorite thing about the new theme is how a fair amount of layout/format elements from when SSMB was still running on IPBoard 3.0 (aka pre-2015 facelift SSMB) have been restored. The homepage layout, the textboxes (for both thread replies and status replies), the top-right header...very good stuff. The new Sonic webpage icon is neat too.

Can't wait for the character themes to make their return!

Closest topic I can use for this

So on my tablet and smartphone; when I try to copypasta an image/gif link in the statuses and go to post it, it doesn't appear and essiencially leave whatever is supposed to be there blank. Any idea as to why it is doing that? The tablet I'm using is an iPad. 

Edit: Ok so I think that shows up when I'm inserting the image for the first time, when it asks me to remove formatting and I don't....I think? This is odd
