You missed it... last night, for some reason, all of the announcement icons were frowny faces. Twintop asked why and Spinalcrack says "because all priests ever hear is bad news". I almost died!

And as a bonus, not that I use the repcalc much anymore, but it's made Wowjuju bearable again.

We're all for people giving their opinions in a helpful way. That's why it's here in the suggestion forums. A "this sucks do better" doesn't help anyone. It's just a ways of my time.
I'm giving this as a warning to everyone. Post useful and help feedback or don't post at all.

Regarding the mobile site, I find that virtually unusable now so I'm resorting to Tapatalk until it's resolved.

-the default font weight and color (grey I think) make it hard to read on a white background. This is the font I see when I browse a thread, the sub-forum descriptions, stats on a user on the right sidebar of a post. Curiously when I respond to a post, the posts under the topic review section down below are black. They are much easier to read.
-green usernames looked fine on the old site, but they are hard on the eyes and hard to read with the white background. orange names are similarly hard on the eyes.
-at 800x600, (which my old laptop is stuck with) the main panel and the right side bar overlap. I think this is happening because you are preventing horizontal scroll bars.
-when at the top of the page, the H2P banner and howtopriest.com banner are solid purple. When you scroll down 1 pixel, the H2P banner snaps to a center gradient. It's a bit jarring. The center of the gradient also does not have much contract with the white text in front of it.
-while the user avatar stuff is over top of the H2P banner, you can't click any of the H2P banner links. Mouseover doesn't work on them either.
-there is a lot of padding around everything. I understand this is part of creating a clean looking site, but it isn't working that great here. Deltas in padding can help visually group. Look at google search results for example. There is lots of padding between each search result, but individual search results are pretty dense. On H2P, you have a thin box around each post, but the amount of padding within each post still makes it hard to distinguish where one post ends and another starts. Curiously again, the topic review section when replying to a post does this better than when browsing a thread.
-I'm not a fan of navigation bars on the right of the screen. They cause problems when trying to resize or on odd screen resolutions.

Please don't think that these have been casually brushed aside. I am currently working on the suggestions on a test site and will implement them here once I have a better solution.

But a big issue for me is that the posts themselves seem to be overshadowed by both the banner and whatever you call that stuff on the right side. They both seem much larger than necessary & it kind of makes the posts seem like they are shoved into a little box in the lower left hand side of my screen (a slight exaggeration to illustrate my point).
