We changed things up at the very start of the day (by local reckoning), May 1.
Please wait a day or two before sending a list of your complaints as we work out the bugs.
One thing we'll be checking is the readability of the site (including the forums) using different displays. They vary considerably, enough that what will look super in one, is nearly unreadable in another. We will be tweaking colours as we go along.
Only suggestion I have, and you might have considered this already, but if you could use style or color tags for the background, rather than images, that would be nice.
Minimal-image themes load more quickly, not all of us have highspeed at all times.
AH: The images are from the vB default style and the same as were loading before. They include a few gradient images that are used on some rows and so forth.
ALL: Very little was changed on the forum styles. Some of you are now having trouble with the same white body background/text display. Try the "dark border" option to change your perception of the rest of the page.
Any of you guys living on this board are welcome to use some of your free time to create or locate other skins with color schemes you would like to see made available. The general color scheme needs to stay within what you already see since it will have to be compatible with the header/nav, but if you have an actual example of combinations you'd like to see for the body, then send them in. Same goes for something AH would like, with images stripped out of the default or other style.
