This site hurts my eyes

Postby Major Catastrophe » Wed Feb 13, 2013 6:30 pm

Hey, Doom, I still check the forums at least weekly. Or I did, until this re-skin. I really loved how dark the old forums were and how well text color stood out. I also found it really easy to discern new posts, which I find hard to do right now. It's partially because I recently suffered from infections under both my eyelids due to complications from flashburn, but I really had a hard time with the new site even before that.

Is there any easy way to flop this bright white around towards something more soothing? if not, I'll find a Firefox plugin somewhere. Just thought I'd ask first.

Hi, everyone. Playing Planetside 2 right now, mostly. New Conglomerate, Genudine. I'm MajorCat.

Agree, but I understand the hard work involved in keeping this going when we really are not doing what we do best together....
I'm just glad it's still here.. sigh...

Yeah I think Doom had posted somewhere saying he had updated to a newer version of phpBB and it's a little different, and doesn't know how to do the skin. I don't know how either...

Looks good, and my eyes thank you.

Is it very difficult to load skins for this? I found one that's a little cleaner and has a color editor that you can use before downloading to change the color:
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... 28blue%29/

Would be easier I think to make it look like the old forum. If not... still looks better than it did! Thanks Doom!
