The black backdrop on the old forum was perfect and made it very easy on the eye and good for seeing content.

Now the whites / pale greys are dreadful in comparison - anyone else feel the same ?

Can we not have black back :cry: ?

How do you mean:confused: Mine changed straight away! Easy to log out and in again if needed though:)
It goes black when I'm logged in. When I'm not logged in it is grey, when it used to be black. I can't always be bothered logging in and i have all cookie/files/history deleted every time the pc goes off. It would be nice if the default setting was balck.

MIKEY i totally agree.
i know that a lot of work has been put into the changes on here, but i did not see anything wrong with the old site.
i have looked at the FAQ and i see no correct answers there.

How do you move the avatars and membership info from the top of the post to the left hand side like it used to be? Is that an option. And, how do you get rid of the Last Three Posts thing? It seems to break up the flow of the thread.

box?

Just tick the box to remember you when you log in and the page will load with your settings (and you logged in).
iv ticked the box to remember me but my screen skin is still white.

on the old site the option box was on the botton left of the home screen, so where is it now anyone please?

It will stay white until you change the skin - but I can't remember how! I thought it was quick links and miscellaneous, but this has been greyed out and unavailable now.

Click on Profile (top left) and then click on edit options (far left/ half way down) you will then see a drop down box under the different skins. Click on Modern and then click save.:)

Yes... I worked out how to change the skin and I'm getting used to the three last posts at the top of the message (though it makes it look like I've reached the bottom, when in fact I'm at the top) and I'm getting used to the Avatars and Signatures being under the post (cluttering up the flow) rather than to the left....

So what does the "re-design" actually do, that I didn't have before?

It seems the Forums have just been made more cluttered and difficult to use than they were previously. :confused:

Sorry, don't agree at all, white text on black background is very hard on your eyes. Text should always be darker than the background, so the changes get the thumbs up from me. In any case, as pointed out, just change your own default and you'll be fine.
