    Hello everyone,

    All of a sudden, there's this awful-looking outline around my callsign on my profile page:

    Can this be fixed? It looks horrible.

    Thanks! :)

    I think the black outline is OK. Given a choice I would not have picked that font, but I can live with it.

    I understand there were changes for 'security' reasons, that's fine. But really, to me, the shadow effect, with that color, and that radius, looks really bad. Kinda wish they had not messed with the 'expert CSS' options...I like my styling better.

    So you don't think that allowing expert options was part of the security problem?

    And you don't like that BLUE color of your callsign? If you become a Subsriber, it would then be GREEN (check mine). I am not saying that any color will look good with that crappy font, but it would not be blue.

    Probably not what I would pick, but it's OK. I tend to like broad, light shading, but I wouldn't chastise anyone for using something else.

    Sorry if I made it seem like I was chastising. It's a personal preference, and I don't care for the current style. I'll just shut up about it...nothing I can do. ;-)

    I noticed the change and don't like it. The outline is OK, but that "balloon" font ..... absolutely awful! Not sure why that style was chosen. To top it off, it is actually harder to read as the letters look all shoved together now with no spacing in between.

    The color choices you all have made are horrible. Some have green, some have blue, some have a putrid yellow, then you surround it with a shadow. You could highlight that without it being so dark. Fonts, colors, shadows are just awful. There are so many different options you could choose. I could probably design something much nicer using a different font and css in a few minutes.

    Is there any rhyme or reason to the callsign color? I've noticed mine has changed from yellow to red?? Just curious.
