What I find interesting is how I didn't realize how those extensions I had installed were diminishing this site's performance.

The server is certainly faster with them gone.

Some extensions may eat a lot of memory + it seems that if you have a lot of extensions enabled (even if those are optimized inna best way) it will affect server speed.
+ there could be style related issues that affect loading as well (badly optimized jquery/css & bugs).

Yeah, and I'm pretty sure the extensions I had were buggy as well. Sorry for the late reply, I got busy yesterday.

Anyway, I think I fixed the avatar bug in this style.

Yep.. it's fixed now.
When I was re-factoring ACP few years ago I discovered that avatar display issue, but i don't remember what I did with it)

In my case, I stole code from memberlist_view.html of the new prosilver and put it in the memberlist_view.html of the flat style, whilst removing the old avatar code there.

I noticed that mentions don't work here.. Did something break with flat style?

Hmm.. Switched to prosilver & it is working. Seems like some edits are missing for flat one.

And take a look at pagination as well.. Seems like something is missing.

Fixed.

I overlooked Pagination.html and notification_dropdown.html.

notification_dropdown.html is why the notices did not show up properly.
