I've got plenty of resources. If you guys don't want to give up and use reddit/discord then please post in this thread. If interest is high enough I'll try to have a new board set up by the end of the week! Please post feature requests also -- I'll be shopping for appropriate forum software.
SRK has been saved, but I'm going to keep developing this anyway. I'll use this thread to post dev updates.
] animated avatars
] upvote system
] main theme
] stage select (theme selector)
] UI tweaks
Pretty big code update today, but if I've done my job properly you guys shouldn't really notice a difference.
Lots of tweaks to how themes handle different font sizes. It should be much easier for me to scale/change all the fonts on the site at once now. This is important for creating more advanced themes/tweaking the mobile layout.
As always, report any bugs you guys find!
Wanted to even out the number of light and dark themes, so here's the latest one!
MvC really had some great art.
Moved to a new host. E-mail system should work properly again.
Reaction counts on posts were reset as a result of the server move, but everything else should have transitioned over seamlessly.
More theme stuff:
- New fonts
- Removed rounded edges
- Mobile theme tweaks
Seems like some people were viewing cached, old versions of the site. This should be fixed now. Everyone should be getting the latest version the next time they visit.
- More minor theme fixes
- Indicators for threads with new posts
- Search bar for mobile view
No more shitty mobile themes!
The new mobile theme is fully featured and can do everything that the full size site does. Should be easy to use -- let me know if you find any bugs or have any problems!
Big top menus:
Avatars, sigs, images, reactions...everything works on mobile:
Stage selector working just fine:

More minor theme fixes.
One thing I have heard people complain about is how Vanilla forum saves their drafts in the comment window, and they have to keep deleting it every time. This is NOT a bug.
Vanilla forum actually has a 'drafts' section where you can manage all your saved drafts. The problem is that the theme SRK uses does not actually have a link to this page.
My theme does not have this problem. Click the pencil at any time to manage your drafts!
- Changed Vanilla Forum versions
- Theme tweaks
- Added reactions/user ranks
- Removed voter system
Reactions are working. Still deciding what kind of ranks I want. Badge system for special members will be set up later.
- HTML e-mails now active (clickable links in e-mails!)
- Emoji guide added to site rules/info
Site uses the standard twitter emojis - see how to type them below:
- Theme tweaks
- New e-mail system!
I have moved over to a new e-mail system that should help keep srk2.com e-mails from being marked as spam. There should be no more problems receiving verification e-mails now. Required a tiny monthly fee, but definitely worth it to make sure e-mails work!
This should no longer be a problem -- but if you have not received a confirmation e-mail please PM me. I will confirm you manually!
1/18/18 (part 2)
Ok. Forums are open FOR REAL THIS TIME.
If you made an account before please remake it. Your confirmation e-mail should arrive this time. Look for it in your spam folder if you don't see it for a while.
Forums now open!
- Working out e-mail bugs. Please wait. =[
- Moved to quality hosting solution
- Easy-to-read URLs
- SSL certificate for encrypted login
- UI/optimization tweaks
- Stage Select button added to the top of the screen
- New KOF '94 Japan stage theme:
Feel free to post over there and let me know if there are any bugs!

- Tweaked dark theme
- Animated upvote buttons
- Cleaner post score display
- User title displayed under avatar
- Images allowed in signatures
- Flag button added to posts
I think board is feature complete now. I'm about ready to do a database wipe and open it up to people. I'll probably make a few more themes, but then we're ready to go.
: I finished all 4 themes. I'm still not happy with the dark one.
Stage Select has been updated! Animated joystick buttons + stage name display have been added.
Now stage selector closes automatically / brings you to top of the screen once you've selected a theme.
: Theme switcher is working! Now taking requests for color schemes / your favorite fighting game stages.
I'll focus on styling the text/site colors for each theme now. You can try it out for yourself @ http://srk2.com
