Great job on getting the Debian Users Forums back up so quickly. Your Prosilver default phpBB theme is just fine. :)

C'mon... Even if they did, somebody will think it sucks. It's an endless road. Use the scripts mentioned or just adjust. I'm not a huge fan of blue, but this isn't bad at all after a while. And anyway, the content is what matters after all.

Not everybody uses Firefox. I get extremely annoyed when people get that arrogant.

I understand that. My intention was not to appear arrogant. I was a bit irritated by lolanoob's whining about the new looks when I wrote what I wrote. I should've added something along the lines "try to figure out how to change the look of the web sites when I use <insert browser here>" to my post but I didn't come to think about it at the time.

Edit: I don't know if BioTube even referred to me but here goes anyway.

Maybe the Admins could install a couple more phpBB3 Styles. It's very easy to do. This would give folks options. Here's a nice Styles site:

Anyone else been getting this (see attachment)? My e-mail address used to be 100% spam-free from 2005 until this month. I am not pleased.

It is a great relieve that the forum returned, however, as I said earlier, something must be done to allow all those who do not enjoy a good eyesight, to be able to comfortably use the forum. The colour scheme used, is made of the shades of the same colour, and this is not helping in demarching clearly the different parts of the forum. Moreover, the chosen colour is almost white greatly increasing eye stress and fatigue. Note that a white background and any shade appromixating white, is far from ideal as a background.

Please provide an alternative.
Thanks.

Howdy edbarx,

As others have mentioned there are various ways to customise styles. The ease of which largely depend on your browser. As i use 'opera' i can toggle between user and author mode along with setting a path to a local style sheet. Which will over-ride the default style used by the page i'm viewing.

A person just needs to take an appropriate page from their cache and set styles that suit themselves for the layout constructs. Then select that as the style sheet to use in 'user' mode.

And there is the percentile values that can be used for fonts of course.

Why tiny fonts always seem to be the default on most pages really escapes me at times. It seems a bit insensitive to the real world. On my 19 inch Flat LCD the default here is like --- really small. So i have it set to 150% at the moment in 'author' mode. Small fonts are something that tend to really irritate me at time, and is about the only real gripe i think of first (grin)

As for 'the images,etc' being on the left --- a total none issue. Just style it out if you must.

What would be useful though -=- would be an 'icon' or some image/thing that indicated that there have been new posts made to the thread ... :) :wink:
