    i can't even use the browser on my phone because it is incapable. Granted I know some people have to, but there is almost no point in accessing this place because almost every post has files.

    I actually disabled ad blocker because the front page looks too odd design-wise without the ad banner filling the top.
    You win this time...

    There's a Chrome plugin you can use to browse with a dark mode on most (that I've tried) sites. I'm using it right now with the new Temp style. The plugin is just called Dark Mode.

    And, no, I'm not using the dark extension thingy, that makes everything look like this:

    The new theme looks fantastic! Great work guys. The biggest feature by far is the excellent mobile theme.

    It's always nice to see change, i really don't care about how the site looks, as long as it works i'm happy :)
    About the patreon, not my thing, 1 time donation i would do, monthly donation is to much for me, i never enter sweepstakes anyway.
    and the ads never got in my way. But keep on rocking guys you all did a great job since the early days till now! been a fan of the site almost since it started.
    Ah, those good old early not so legal days :D

    This is a welcome change. I visit almost exclusively via mobile and it looks slick and definitely more tidy and mobile friendly. Only thing missing (for now) is dark theme. Great job on this guys!

    I can't really say I'm for it. It looks like any other typical forum now. Pages are harder to navigate, individual posts blend in to each other. In addition, the forum list and general site headers are less versatile than they previously were. The GBATemp site was unique in the fact that it had its own style, and now it looks pretty similar to other sites; harshly put, forgettable.

    The search engine is the major flaw that GBATemp deserves.

    Personally, the theme looks even less optimised for mobile what with the whites blending into each other, and nothing really having its own "space" (specifically, many buttons being crammed into one area, especially with the header of the site). I'll be reverting to Tempstyle DARK V1 as of now.

    why

    I thought flat design was dead already. Change for the sake of change is not a good thing.

    What is Patreon anyways? Maybe have a thread explaining to people what is and how it is used. Like a introduction topic. I have never heard of it and never used it. Thought we were gonna be donating through the temp it self, I was surprised to see a 3rd party site.

    Patreon is really just a simple donation site, I thought through paypal myself.
