    That's a lot of information but it doesn't have the cluttered look we see so often, and which can be especially noticeable on a black background. Nicely done!

    And I'm sure it won't take you long to find something else to fiddle with!

    Yeah, I think the profiles are the best piece of work I've done on my site. One of the first customizations too which set the tone for the rest of the site. They'll not be to everyone's liking but I think they fit in well with the rest of my theme and they aren't too cluttered with how the information is laid out.
    Taking a break from customizing on GC, I'm working on a light version of the theme but that isn't too hard to create. Hopefully we'll see a stable XF2 sometime in the next 12 months then I can start working on customizing for that :)

    I don't think you'll be able to wait that long to make more customizations! :D

    So yesterday it rained for what seemed like ever. Kept me in the house most of the day, bored...only thing to do was customize something!!!

    Revisited my Notable Members layout and changed the tabs to FontAwesome icons

    Also, tidied up some of the Notable Members, Member List, Online Members layout and made the mobile layout look a bit better.

    Did some work on the On/Off Canvas menus available in the UI.X framework and I've activated the Visitor Tabs panel so it appears at all times so members can easily access their account menu without too much scrolling back to the top of the page.

    And tonight, I finished off some Who's Online customizations :)

    It definitely has the Gemma touch - lots of information but not cluttered. Some of the best work on a black background I've seen. And everything is so neat and uniform... I'd love to sneak a peek in your sock drawer! :D


    Edit: What's so funny? Don't you have sock drawers across the pond? Everyone in America has one or more.

    I was told my review might be too blunt, I apologise before you get offended. But please consider the recommendations.

    It might not be as pretty as the one here or on xenForo 2 but here's my updated, minimalist layout for the user account tab (navigation visitor tab template) which has been inspired by both mentioned sites - displaying only the "essential" links for my members.

    Gone from my previous layout
