    Alright, so maybe many people know, but this is what we refer to as 'username masks' -











    They can be usernames in the format of a regular image or an animated gif, and they can be used/acquired through redeeming points from contests on NF

    However, this thread isn't about best ways to get points for this or something like that

    @Rinoa and I have made some adjustments that involve username masks, and we wanted to let people know

    Basically the username masks are handled using Xenforo usergroups and css, and for some time we've been using the same css code/numbers for multiple different username masks that didn't all have the same width x height, which caused some off-centering of the username below the avatar area in posts. After realizing this... we decided to have a closer look and make some individual changes

    Now, with that said, it's time for some screenshots

    @Undead's username mask

    Before-



    After-



    @Majin Lu's username mask

    Before-



    After-



    @Santi's username mask

    Before-



    After-



    @Gin's username mask

    Before-



    After-



    @Nataly's username mask

    Before-



    After-



    Furthermore, adjusting the horizontal centering for each name mask also adjusts the comma after their name in the "Users Who Are Viewing This Node/Thread" area and in the "Members Online Now" area

    See how much space there was between Santi's name and the comma after his name (or Gin's case) in the "Users Who Are Viewing This Node/Thread" area with the way we used to have it-



    Now it looks like this-



    And see how much space there was between Nataly's name and the comma before Reznor's name in the "Members Online Now" area (same thing with Santi's and Gin's name) with the way we used to have it-



    Now it looks like this-



    The screenshots use Dark Skin CSS (Opt-in)

    but the adjustments here are for all skins where username masks are displayed

    and thank you again @Rinoa for your help with this

    Awesome, I have noticed the space the custom usernames leave before commas and when viewing the thread, but it is all fixed now.
    Great job, Rinoa and Jackk
