Get rid of that crap. Sorry if you like it but I dont. While I like the Sox uniform colors being that, I dont like my board being that color. Please change it back to the way it was

I like the Sox colors.  The dark background is better for your eyes.

Then why does it seem harder to read this forum? The light blue was much easier on my eyes.  :(

Is there not a way for each individual to customize their background? So those who like this can keep it while others can switch to a different color?

Maybe just because of the low contrast between the gray-ish text and the darker gray background.

My point was just that if you're going to stare at a backlit computer screen, it's better for your eyes if it's a darker image....[/HR cubicle safety schpeel]

I'd be more concerned for your eyes watching TV. Particularly sports. Particularly baseball. Partic-. . . .ahh, you know where this is going.

I like the black/grey background, but if it must be changed again, I'd vote for the caramel.  The blue is too Cubbish.

The Sox went through about 20 different uniforms before settling on the black and silver. They spent two entire decades (70s-80s) in really, really bad attire.

Let's try to learn from history and leave this puppy as is. It looks fine.

There isn't an option on create-a-forum for users to pick their own 'style' setting.

If you wish, you can go into their Support Forum ->Suggestions and ask them to offer this option.

http://support.createaforum.com/ 

However, If you're using a FireFox browser there is a quick way for you to customize the background color +/or the text color and the 'zoom' level. 

It's called the NoSquint add-on and it works great. 

I just tried it and I was able to change the background to white, the text to black, and adjust the 'zoom' level for the text which could be easier on your eyes.  You can even change the text color of the 'links' too. 

JhonJeter could even change to colors scheme to match his Seattle Mariners or Chicago Cubs jammies using this add-on. ;D

more info here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/nosquint/

Hope this helps.

And for those people with corporate overlords roaming the halls looking for excuses to lop off heads (not me, thank goodness- hunger is my Master), the black on white was the most innocuous.

Amazing that we agree on something. Has to be a first :o :o :o

can we get a new main page pic?  I hate that one and it is up in the left hand corner.  Can it be centered?

I've got the No Squint add-on enabled now.  I went with a simple light gray background, black text, red links, purple visited links.  Had to disable the ugly orange background though.

Yeah, you can't please everyone.

How do you do html stuff like colors, etc. beyond what's available in the dropdown?

How do you embed links in normal text?

There are buttons right above the smiley faces... one of them inserts links etc... looks like a planet symbol with a page in front.
