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.
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 ...
