    @tptqiantum: The reason is... umm... beacouse yes. Do not dispute Big Brother's decision. I think there are reasons why they haven't done this. (I hope this was 100% legit)

    I would restyle the website entirely and make it look modern, flat/material designs look awesome. Maybe even an option to switch between dark and bright themes. Also replace this WYSIWYG editor with a better one, improve the groups system or get rid of it entirely, a poll should be made to decide. I would turn the FAQ section into a section containing more frequently asked questions and list all rules there and I would somehow try to make it so that our IRC channel is easy to find (not sponsored). So vote for me, let's make http://powdertoy.co.uk great again #Mrprocom2017

    Imagine how ugly the forums would look like if we had signatures, it would look extremely ugly, flashing colourful GIFs would be everywhere and forum pages would be 50% longer. Signatures are even pretty useless, they serve no purpose at all, so why include them?
    Now, give me a legit reason of why you think signatures should be added.

    Made a whole thread: http://powdertoy.co.uk/Discussions/Thread/View.html?Thread=21641

     You're right. If they're implemented, they should be very small.

    Use a modern vesion of a framework (Bootstrap in this case), and add customisations in a seperate file to make for easier upgradability in the future.

     

    Use the userscripts (@jacksonmj and mine) as a base for knowing what needs to be fixed/changed. That would provide a nice base that would rid all of the major bugs.

    add themes for the website

    like dark and stuff and also you could see a custom backroung everytime you visit the website

    like you go to user -> theme -> background and choose a custom background and it would show evertime you go to the website

    and ADD DARK AND LIGHT THEMES!!!!!!

    user themes would be stored in a file like powdertoy.co.uk/user/yousuck/usertheme.css

    Agreeing with Mrprocom and jacob2, and I think that's kind of all we need, for the most part the website is okay. I do feel like there could be a better way to find users, though. I know you can bring up a list of all results including them with @user "yourusernamehere" in the search bar, but getting to their profile page is a bit of a pain.
