The moderators decided to change the default look of the forum back to the original "skin" that we used when we started.
There are a few reasons for this.
1. None of us likes the colour-scheme we've been using recently. To put it mildly.
2. None of us likes the banner we've been using recently.
3. There are some members who post very high-quality photographs here and we all think these images are better presented against a dark background.
If anyone especially prefers the look we've had over recent months, you can select it by going to your profile and opting for the skin called "Boyz" under "Board Styles". If so, may I suggest that you follow your decision promptly with an appointment at your nearest optician
Over the next few days/weeks, we'll be looking at some new ideas for the banner at the top of the forum page, so expect some experiments. We'll be asking for feedback as we try out new ideas.
If you have any comments, I'm sure you'll post them below...
P.S. If you are, by some chance, stuck on the "Boyz" skin, you can change to the new/old default look by going to your profile and selecting the "AcidTechEx" skin under "Board Styles".
