    Loving the font. It's like a neon sign. I'll be using this for the foreseeable future

    Top left corner. There should be a Houndoom and its pups.

    @Vulpix037 This is what it's supposed to look like (and what it does look like on my computer):

    The problem is that the Bulbagarden Forums banner at the right appears on top because the Houndour/Houndoom image is just a background image. So when the window width becomes smaller, the banner image covers it up entirely.

    [​IMG]

    The same thing happens with Year of the Dog, except the "Bulbagarden Forums" banner on this one is just text on a transparent background, so the Arcanine/Growlithe background image is still visible behind it, and with Rainbow Rocket, except with that one the background image is aligned to the right while the banner is aligned to the left (the banner is also just text on a transparent background, so you can still see the background image.)
    Probably other themes too, but those are the only ones I really checked. I assume this rule applies to all themes.

    I recommend getting rid of the stars and the fog from the banner and having it on the background image itself instead, and having the banner as just text on transparent background. That way the "Bulbagarden Forums" title banner won't completely cover up the Houndoom art on mobile, and you'll still have those stars and the fog/cloud showing underneath. Though the "Bulbagarden Forums Evie's Den" text may cover the art a little bit, but it's better than not seeing anything at all.

    [​IMG]

    What I mean is, fill most of the blank purple space with the same fog and stars effect as you have on the banner, and change the banner so it's just neon sign letters on transparent background.


    Also, I wouldn't recommend using direct links to discord attachments for forum theme images. Why not upload them to the forums' servers alongside the other styles'? Discord is not an image host.
    You did the same thing with Year of the Dog too. If the posts were deleted from Discord, or Discord staff eventually cleared old attachments themselves to free up space on their servers, the forum themes break.
    No harm in keeping them on the forums' servers with the other themes' pictures, and you'll have better control over everything there.

    Not bad. I'm liking it so far. Is there a Mienshao style in the works?
