I know its aesthetic and all, but the font is reaaaaaly small.

I'm not sure if it exists but a button to make text spaced l i k e  t h i s would be a perfect addition right next to bold italic and undercore.

overall I'm diggin it the way it is man, good work!

aight look this place could be good but my god is the formatting and design on this forum horrendous
and i mean, having been to numerous forums, this has got to be one of the worst. what a mess. sorry

tiny buttons. horrible font. huge images. garbage icons.... the only good thing is the b&w color scheme and maybe the smilies
look man you gotta focus on the content:screen ratio. if a single post takes up half my fucking screen it better be worthwhile. but it's not. your design is shit. also forums are good because they promote lengthy and in depth discussions (e.g. the "what is [subgenre]?" threads. i like them), so stop using this place mainly for small talk and posting threads with single links. go do that in the chat room.

also delete all the pointless fucking subtopics. they should exist out of necessity when the time comes. but you've only just started a forum you can't expect everyone to spread out their content across such a large variety of topics.

go scrap most/all of this design and start again. i mean at a glance this forum looks nice but within 2s you realise it's a mess. here's an example image of a forum i used to frequent which had a decent theme made entirely from scratch. i know it's not vaporwave but just to show you that this can all be done easily, just ask for lots of critique in chatrooms (or telegram)

Alright look this place could be good but the formatting and design on this forum is horrendous
and i mean, having been to numerous forums, this has got to be one of the worst. What a mess, sorry

Scrap most/all of this design and start over. I mean at a glance this forum looks nice but within two seconds you realise it's a mess. here's an example image of a forum I used to frequent which had a decent theme made entirely from scratch. I know it's not vaporwave but just to show you that this can all be done easily, just ask for lots of critique in chatrooms (or telegram)



You have some good points here but I did decide to take out the swearing and try to fix the interpunction (I'm really bad at interpunction).
Personally anything that is meant as valid critique but swears anywhere where it could be avoided starts feeling more like an attack than critique.
Which doesn't inherently mean the points which are made are bad, just that the delivery could be smoother.

But yeay,
The design can feel clunky like with image and embed size but also in the messaging system and inbox.
Topics can be put together more so activity isn't so spread out is also a good one.

Maybe look at more other forums and see what they do right and wrong?

[/quote]

The sizes of the embeds and images can be really big to the point where I can only properly have on comment on my screen.

Now it isn't the worst thing ever but it could be tweaked to where it's still a good size but not so big it covers everything.
