I'm not sure if there has been a standard change to the site, perhaps over the weekend, but everything here looks white where it was black before. Is this a new change or have I done something to muck it up?

It is not a different look, but the NEW look!!! The template has been changed, and the entire site is still under upgrade. This is a new change from the website part.

I do like the brighter look!  It helps to separate the "spook" factor of dark, and foreboding from the paranormal.  (Where did that association actually come from anyway?)

 

But I do see an issue with some older posts made prior to the change.  Where someone has designated a font color of yellow or white for example against the dark background it worked fine before.  But that same post would now be hard to read.  If you encounter a page which seems to be missing a post try highlighting it to make the text visible.

 

This is not to say we should switch back to a dark bckground; the same problem occurs there if someone posts a dark font.   Rather everyone who posts should stay with the default board color (automatic) rather than specify a font color unless they are VERY careful regading the colors they choose! (Blue, Red, Green are usually OK as they appear on either a white or black background.)

I prefer the darker boards, but as long as it was a master change and not anything I did, then I can live with it. Just the pale pink and pale blue remind me of babies.

Ever since the last change (to the darker template 6 years ago), we all have been rooting for a change. It took so long for this positive change hahaha

Oh good, I thought it was my computer fecking up. Though, it still shows up as the darker background on my laptop. Not sure why, but a tad odd.

Life is too short to take seriously, none of us get out of it alive.


Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be.Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.

I like it. Much easier to read!
