Thumbs Up Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

Those of you using the Modern skin for the forum will hopefully have noticed that we now have AO SNOW, thanks to the Admin boffins!

You may need to clear the cache and reboot, but it's definitely snowing on most popular browsers


You will need to click on this link to activate the snow effect :

AO Modern Christmas Theme

Links to the return to the other themes are posted below:

AO Grey
AO Modern

AO Classic

Happy Christmas everyone

Made my processor too hot, the cooling fan kept running non-stop, so I had to go back to modern. :

Agreed. Different but I'm not keen on the dark effect.

Those links are from last year before the forum update so they won't work.

Instead select any skin except for Full Dark from the dropdown window at the bottom left of the page.
(if it doesn't work from this page try it from within another thread)


Edit: Full dark is now available with or without snow

There is a glitch in the matrix somewhere.

I was on either classic or full (light), i.e. I had a white background.

When I came to the forum a couple of minutes ago, it had switched to dark background withe white snow. Okay, it was cute for a minute, but then I decided to go back to the white background (as I absolutely hate reading white on dark). No matter which option I pick (Classic I, Classic II, Full Light), it won't work. My screen goes white, but it's also blank. As in nothing: no words, no images, nada. In order to get the forum back, I have to select Full Dark. I'm on Win 8.1 using Firefox.

I have no problem with the effect - looks lovely on my iPad can never be bothered using a PC outside working hours!

However, on this side of the world, it's a muggy 22 degrees C - not quite summer but definitely not winter

I am going to remove these links as they are not for the new AO format and if you select them (like TS) it will be a problem.
