Looks good to me.

Edit, have you changed the font to bold since I posted this?

Nope, all I did last night was increase the font size and change the font family

Well I must say that its very clear to read now, if anyone complains that its difficult to read a visit to Specsavers is required, well done Xac, each little tweak you do is making a big difference to the overall picture =D>

It's not 'growing' on me as I hoped it would and i'm finding the black on grey and white combo a tad tedious to the extent that i'm not
enjoying my 'forum time' for the first time in a long while.

Maybe I need a break from the activities, i certainly dont need a holiday :)

Let's see how it goes with a new regime of 'dipping in, dipping out' as opposed to total immersion :wink:

Life's dull enough these days without having a dour grey/black/white themed forum and i'm finding just a few minutes of trawling
through posts is just too tedious these days and i'm convinced the number/quality of posts since the 'upgrade' has deteriorated, maybe it's
not just me who's finding it hard going.

I've fallen out of love with FCF, sad but true, since the changes.

I dont doubt i'll be keeping an eye open, just not as frequently as before.

I'm not a techie type but must we have the greyscale theme or is it possible to bring a bit of life back to the layout in future?



There is simply not enough contrast , to the point of being depressing . It is hower very good camouflage ( like WW2 German uniform )

No doubt there are extra useful " features " but the colours are dreadful and the forum has lost it's " light hearted clarity"

the old ( last) scheme was much much better , easier to discern and a delight to read .

I wonder if user numbers reflect this
