I saw the email telling me about the new changes, and I clicked on the email. The new JoyFreak looks amazing! I love the fact that JoyFreak Premium is a thing. The light theme looks great with the white on blue contrast.Dark mode looks AWESOME, too. I absolutely adore how the dark blue contrasts with the black.

For anyone who was feeling nostalgic, here's a link to the old JoyFreak.

Thank you so much for your feedback, it means a lot! I am pleased you like it and I hope everyone else does too! I personally love it! The colour contrasts are much more appealing and the site is so much more easier to navigate making the users experience at ease! Would love to hear other peoples feedback and suggestions too. My only concern was the logo and rebranding JoyFreak. My other pal said he liked the old logo with the gamepad, so would be nice to hear people's thoughts on that too!

Thanks again!

The only thing that I miss is the old JoyFreak logo, but that's a small price to pay. Everything else about the new theme is amazing, and the new logo actually looks really good. However, I still feel nostalgic for the triangle-and-gamepad logo.

I will definitely miss the old logo but happy with our new one. Simple and professional.

Okay, I know this is quite off topic but I couldn't help myself - I made a parody of God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman with lyrics relating to JoyFreak.

(Why God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman? I guess my brain still thinks it's Christmas...)
I put it in a spoiler because it's long.

Now comes a new forum theme
The old one went one day,
The new theme's looking pretty cool
It will show us the way
The black and blue contrast so nicely
In a beaut'ful way,
Oh, JoyFreak's looking real great,
Looking real great,
Oh, JoyFreak's looking real great!

T'was a shame the old theme is gone
The logo looked so cool,
But this new logo looks real great
'Cause greatness is the rule!
Premium's a real blessed feature
Signatures as well,
The old theme may be gone, but the new theme looks cool as hell!
Oh, JoyFreak's looking real great,
Looking real great,
Oh, JoyFreak's looking real great!

I'm running out of lyrics
I should probably end it soon,
But there's one last thing I must say
Or I'll look like a loon,
The new logo with "J" and "F" looks so perfectly that,
You'd slap it on a T-shirt, or wear it on a hat!
Oh, JoyFreak's looking real great,
Looking real great,
Oh, JoyFreak's looking real great!

Now that is all I have to say,
And now I end this song,
You don't need to, but if you like,
Feel free to sing along,
And that concludes this parody,
When I say I'm not wrong, that:
JoyFreak's looking real great,
Looking real great,
Oh, JoyFreak's looking real great!

Did I say I'd end this song,
Well, too bad, I did lie,
The theme looks so gosh-darn pretty,
I think that I will cry,
Two more sentences to end it,
JoyFreak, live on long,
As I sing the last words of this song,
Words of this song,
As I sing the last words of this song!

(This took me 20 minutes. I think it's worth it!)

Haha! I absolutely loved that! Great job on the lyrics, we might have to start our own JoyFreak band someday :ROFLMAO:
Also, is that a suggestion I hear in the lyrics, future t-shirts and hats? It is very possible! JoyFreak, live on long!

I started a new thread because I was derailing this one.
The new thread is called "Merchandise Proposal." I made some actual merch for JoyFreak, even though I hadn't planned on doing it!

I loved the design too. The purple suits the forum more than red. In fact the small content area is also appreciated design. I loved the theme.

It looks easy in the video but it took a lot of time to get things precisely right which you don't get to see in the video. Getting the alignments right was the most stressful part.

That's a good point. I'm also impressed that you put in all the hard work for us when we wanted the new logo! It shows us that you were putting in a lot of effort and responding positively to community feedback.

Great job!

Thank you! It means a lot to witness our community appreciating the little things! Hoping for more hard work in 2020 and spreading positivity across our community!
