    For all of those who thought we weren't listening, we have just released a new forums visual style called Dark Shack, with a number of display changes.

    To try it out, go to the bottom of this page and look for the link on the bottom bar that says Default Style. Click that and choose Dark Shack. You can return to the other default style at any time.

    Note - you can also choose the new style on your Preferences page (top of this page, under your call sign)

    I created this style myself and it took several hours of tinkering. Every time I changed something, it affected the color elsewhere, not always in a good way. This, therefore, is my first attempt at a new style. As we continue I may develop some new styles but for the time being, enjoy and let us know what you think.

    Here's a screenshot:


    I certainly hope that you like it because it took a lot of effort to produce. Be kind and I might create another one :)

    This visual style you added has potiental the member group icon needs to be updated so everyone can see which member is either staff or forum member. So far I am getting use to it.

    MUCH better. Looks a lot less like a Nick Jr. fairy-tail princess version.

    Having various "skins" is probably the best way to go, then members have multiple options to keep them happy. There is also a human factors component because people have different color vision and some are color blind. There are sites that show how to design various schemes to address differences in color vision.

    That said, I do like the new scheme a lot better. JMO

    Thanks, Fred, for your effort. I actually had no problem with the 'white' format but I'll try this one for a while to see how it 'sets' :) The default font already has me happier.
