Welcome Back! (again)

News and announcements regarding Debian and the forum. Not for support questions.

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.

Like everyone, I would like to express my most sincere thanks to all those involved in restoring the fora. Like the great majority, it was quite a shock for me when I read that the fora could be gone forever. However, that would not have been enough for me to quit using Debian. I know that without help Debian might pose some challenges, but these are very minimal to what ealier users used to endure.

Please take my earlier criticism with a pinch of salt because, sometimes, especially when I am overtired, my eyesight and probably my visual processing, are simply, terrible.

Anyone can choose the best for hes eyes, see my signature
for details.

The use of more styles by default here gives more unnecessary job to the admins.
For each single style change the have to do it 2 times.
From an admin point of view i would not recommend it.

Here is the link to your style chooser,
viewtopic.php?f=12&t=38529&p=225218#p225209
and here is an example on using mods here without asking from the admins
to mess with the code

I like the new look. It's definitely pleasing to the eye. (Blue is one of my favorite colors.) :D

I have a hypothesis as to how an admin password got compromised. :) I suspect that an admin or moderator having access to an administrative password and user name, may have been using Windows to do his/her administrative job. A keylogger could have easily stolen the password passing it to the attacker.

Thanks for all the hard work in getting the site up again. Your dedication is really appreciated by neophytes like me.

I just wanted to thank the fine folks who put their time and effort in to getting these forums back up and running. I think they are an important part of the community and its glad to see them in a full recovery (unlike bsdforums.org :( ).
