    Hello tom!

    So what happened to the "Support Ticket" feedback options?

    You know the Respone Time, Helpfulness ratings and Additional Feedback?

    Hmm, that should appear at the end?

    I'm sorry but I really cannot find where... :(

    The link redirects to a support ticket marked as resolved. I cannot find the option to rate it out of 5 nor is there an input box for additional feedback.

    Hmm I see. Can you report that a bug please?

    Glad to see you're still working on the site! It looks quite nice. It's always nice to see familiar e-faces (avatars?) gathering in the same haunts throughout the years. Hope you're doing well good sir! (Also glad to see you got out of Australia... always worried about the day I'd hear about a kangaroo breaking your neck or something ;P)

    You know what, sir? The Uberstyle of GameBanana is pretty awesome. :) Do you have a plan in "reviving" the fat banana?

    Thanks! Probably not reviving the "fat banana" :)

    I miss the GOOD OL' BANANA, mate. :)

    BTW, could you accept my buddy request? :3

    Hello Tom. Every time I put a special character on my user title, it eventually turns into code; for example, "I hate subjective people." (quotes included) fits the character limit for the user title just fine. However the quotes just turn into

    quot;
    and delete the last characters from the title.

    Take a look at this someday, please. It's a bit annoying to change it everyday.

    I see. Let me address.

    Would be nice if hosting was provided to a small group of bananites (those who have earned it) who develop modules for the website.

    Not as much activity now so not really a big issue but definitely something to think about in the future.

    Sure - email me if you want free hosting! tom@gamebanana.com

    Hey Tom,

    Just stopping by to say thank you for the new theme on gamebanana. It feels clean and simple.

    There are only a few issues I've seen that concern me when searching the site.

    1st. The add comment button has a scroll bar which is fine but is a little of an eye sore, removing the illusion of one to one with the overall theme.

    some_text 2nd. The images present at they top of CS:S, CS:GO, TF2 (ect) submissions, seems to blend into the background the main information for the submission i.e SUBMISSION NAME then below Home > Counter-Strike: Source > Maps > Zombie Mod > Sethen's Zombie Mod MP #4.
    some_text The only ideas that come to mind are to pixilate the image which was done then removed. Dim the image or move the image from the top of the page to the sides of the page such as Steam profile Custom Backgrounds used when earning badges.

    Thanks for the feedback! I agree that the game backgrounds need to be darker.

    I like the changes, Tom. I just would like if submitter posts, exemplified posts and admin posts were outlined with blue, green, and red (respectively) just like before. They don't stand out anymore...

    Furthermore, staff posts don't show clearance levels anymore, placing mods, super mods and admins at the same level, instead of listing how much authority they have. It would lead to ask for help to mods for sections they don't moderate.

    But I'll be looking forward for next updates :)

    I see. Let me consider this.
