As has been stated several times already, an independent team is currently working on the visual side of the forums. Obviously not everything will be updated at the same time, so please do let's stop pretending having to look at characters from different franchises for what is, at the most, a nominal portion of the time you spend on the forums is inducing actual physical agony.
Kinks have to be worked out, and things have to be fine-tuned - obviously not everything can be updated at the exact same time. That doesn't imply any favouritism for one brand over another, nor that certain communities are more valued than others. To think otherwise would be folly. Brand individuality for all the forums will definitely return eventually; you'll have to be patient while things get sorted.
In the meantime, I've been told groups can now be set so as to be viewable by members alone. By which I mean you can now go and call me all sorts of horrible names for closing this thread. Have at it.
