    About the new forums...

    Love it, but why, oh why, can we no longer change the theme? Seriously, I view this website on a 42" monitor, and with how bright this site is now, it kind of hurts my eyes.

    Please bring back a "classic" or just a "dark" theme. I'm not asking for the entire forum to change permanently, just an option like on the previous two versions of the forums.

    If this is in works, just not implemented yet, please accept my apologies.



    Edit: cheers for merging my thread into the official one, as this thread hadn't existed yet when I made this post :p

    There should be the option to change the forums colour scheme using the drop down box in the bottom left corner, just above "Score Guide" in the footer.

    If you're still having problems, post away... :thumb:

    Thanks for the heads up Tim, dark is much easier on the eyes. :)

    Ah, didn't even see that, went looking the hard way through "User CP" and didn't find an option. Hadn't even thought to look down there!

    My eyes thank you.

    Looking good.
    Takes some time to get used to the new look (even though it's not vastly different), but i quite like it.

    I HATE IT I HATE IT I HATE IT!

    There, no no-one else can post that since they'll be copying me and everyone hates copycats.
    I take it you've let Jamie go back to bed now?

    PS: Joe - L4D isn't all that

    Glad to see all the beta testing information was taken on board.

    Love the new tubes.

    This is a definate improvment! I could never get used to the "make me see everything wether I like it, or not way."

    Good job. Much more logical. When I get used to it I'm sure to love it.:clap:

    Any plans to bring the old style of tagging back? (possibly with the old icons) - GD seems a tad messy with some threads categorised and others not

    This woke me up more than the coffee!

    I think the dark theme could be a little... darker - there's not that much difference between it and the light one now.

    (are those Rep. markers I see? They ARE rep blobbies...)

    Needs a darker dark theme, but just in general the new style makes the whole forum look plastic and cheap.

    I like what you have done with it, especially the new albums section. :thumb:

    This is the first time you have changed the forums and I feel its for the better :)

    Just a shame it didn't happen about 3 days after tags were introduced :(

    In general i think its good, especial the return of SD. However (there's always a however ;)) I'm not loving the colours for the threads they seem a bit meh, dirty in dark and BRIGHT in light, dunno i'm just not liking either theme.
