It is possible to keep "Notifications" and "Private messages" when they're collapsed the first time? Instead of switching between full text and number?
The idea is:
Full > Compact > Responsive > Responsive + compact.

You are referring to compact. If we don't use compact, the responsive will kick in very early. This means that all your nice extension icons will be hidden very soon. Compact is a nice compromise. It keeps all icons visible, but smaller.
I understand, it is fine like that then. Good job again! :)

Ok, I get it now.

As much as I would like to 'kill' the "subscribe to the forum" link and the topic tools, I feel that the "Post Reply" and "New Topic" buttons shouldn't be changed no matter what. But that's just me.

Now we just need to tweak the icons, and we're good to go 8-).

Isn't the hamburger menu icon largely known for being some type of menu of the site the user is currently on?

Will "quick links" be hidden in responsive mode I guess is what I'm asking. :)

Remember, the icons and styling isn't finished. I wanted to show the layout.
I think that Members should be at the top, too. Maybe create a "group of people" icon instead of saying "Members".

However, if Members and Team are at the bottom, folding them into the Quick Links menu at the top seems counter-intuitive. There appears to be a menu at the bottom of the page (I think that's what somebody called the "hamburger" even though it's a sideways burger), so things at the bottom should probably go into that menu.

Alternatively, what if we had a "People" menu that contained Members, The Team, Birthdays and Who's Online (taking you to separate pages for each). That would also clear up the clutter at the bottom of the Board Index. It would require a new page for Birthdays and Who's Online, though, unless you could overload another page (like the Member List). For example, memberlist.php?i=online and memberlist.php?i=birthdays. You could even add Friends and Foes items to that menu if you wanted.
