New look forums

Postby Bifford » Thu Dec 31, 2015 6:36 pm

I have to say, I hate the new look for the forums.

Can we have the option to use the old style please!?

Or at least be able to change things around a bit - it's far too anaemic in look with the 90% white and a splash of blue. I at least want to make the surround background a bit darker.

Have to agree. It's pretty hard on the eyes.

Also, is there an option to have the forum not take up the whole window width? I usually use a 1920x1200 monitor, and having the post text run most of the width of the screen doesn't make for easy reading. I could resize the browser window, of course, but there are other sites I use that do make good use of the whole width.

This +1. New forums are awful - to the point of being almost unreadable.

Hi guys,

This is just temporary due to a software upgrade - better appearance coming soon!

Can someone please change the colour of links in the forum posts? They're currently pretty much indistinguishable from normal text.

To demonstrate:

Which one of these is a link?
Which one of these is a link?

The link is the bottom one - it's slightly lighter grey than normal, but if someone puts a link into a block of text or in the middle of a sentence it is going to be pretty much impossible to find.
