I like the new colors.
You're young and you've got good eyes.  Wait until you get a little older.   :P

I'm waiting. ;)

Just a note.
I changed back to the original blue color.  I was finding the yellow too light and bright.  I wear glasses and am one of the older folks, so I guess that was the problem.  I do like the fact that we have been given another choice.

Just to say, thanks for the help in getting me back to the old skin. I was another victim of needing 20 posts before the edit forum options appeared. Now happy again...

I like the LOOK.
There's just 1 thing I don't like.
When I am in the Comments area, the content is spread out to the point of needing to scroll horizontally to be able to see everything.  I don't recall the old format being like that.

What screen resolution are you using?

I'm using 1014x768 on my XP Pro system and the Comments area looks fine.

What comments area ?
If you mean quoted text boxes, that depends on what is in the quoted text as for the most part I don't see a problem. My resolution is 1920x1200 but the browser window size I use is smaller 968x1113, I couldn't work with it at full screen.

I do find the profile information to the left of the posts is much longer seems stretched out.

So the font size for that section and blank lines could be reduced in that section. Also the signature font size could go down another point size or perhaps two and the same with the Quotes text font size.

Here's what I mean by the Comments Area.
Okay, in the Forum HOME area, everything is still Cool.  No scrolling needed.  :)
Then I'll click on a category ... like General Topics.
Everything is still Cool there as well.  No scrolling needed.  :)

THEN I'll click on a Post / Topic ... like the one we are on -- Color Change to Forum.
NOW is when on MY 17" Monitor, the content will be too spread out so that now I need to use the Horizontal Scroll Bar to be able to see all the content.  I don't recall that being the case with the old Forums format.

My 17" Monitor's resolution is 1024 x 768.

Who knows?  Maybe this new Forum format was optimized for BIG / WIDE Screens.

I rarely if ever use the Reply button, but use the Quick Reply window below the post.

There I can see the existing post without scrolling, if it is from another post I will obviously be using the Quote function. So the information I will be responding to will be in the Quick Reply window also, no problem.
