    Default Is there a new style for the forum?

    I kind of hate it. But I guess I will get used to it. Did I accidentally change skin? It's all blue-grey and has blocks.

    I don't mind the look so much as the spacing, the forum entries are so wide I can only see a few without scrolling and then they show up in exactly the same place as the ones I was just looking at so I have to pay more attention when I scroll. <dramatically puts back of wrist to forehead> Whatever shall I do? ... get used to it, what else...

    I am not crazy about it either. Lots of wasted space on the web page.

    Simpler is better, this is distracting and the black writing in the dark blue hard to read, can we opt out WVMJ

    Nope. But I suspect that's because of the "under construction" nature of the update at this point. Usually there are a couple, three skins to choose from.

    You might want to try a different browser. My background is white with black printing in the forum and dark grayish blue with white printing on the headers and I can read it just fine. Different Browsers will render the same code in different ways. Especially if you are using an older version of some of them.

    Cheers

    To be fair, it's not like those pixels cost extra

    I hate change? Yes? Perhaps.
