I don't like this new look at all. Or the layout.

Then don't use it, change to the old default theme of one of the others, Babylon for instance.

If you don't like it put what it is you don't like about it or the layout in the topic about this.
Done--back to the default SMF   and I did post in the other thread

The quote boxes are meant to be restored on the next Default Theme refresh. I was hoping it would be relatively soon, but it will probably be tomorrow now.

I'll be out of forums for five days :)

You're young and you've got good eyes.  Wait until you get a little older.   :P

 Wow...I had to put my  8) sunglasses 8) on when entering the Avast forum just now!

IDEA!  If you think you've now got the color down pat, then how about working on 5 more colors...one for each day of the week! :o   We have 2 colors currently (blue and a goldish yellow), so how 'bout adding the following ones, also:

CURRENT COLORS:

  SKY BLUE Saturday
  (Avast currently)

  8) SUNGLOW 8) Sunday
  (Avast currently)
------------------------------------------

SUGGESTED NEW COLORS:

  "MANGO-TANGO"  Monday

  "TUMBLEWEED"  Tuesday

  "WISTERIA-HYSTERIA"  Wednesday

  "TICKLE-ME-PINK"  Thursday

  "FUZZY-WUZZY"  Friday


Hmmm...don't you think these color suggestions are simply "m-a-r-v-e-l-o-u-s"? :-*

Also, would it be possible to have all 7 of these color schemes up and running by next week? :P  I mean, that's not too much to ask, is it? ;D

By the way, you may or may not realize this, but only "one" of those 7 color descriptions is NOT a crayon color.  Without googling "crayon colors" ;), test yourself...which one of the 7 weekday descriptions is NOT a crayon color? :-\
(No, you are not allowed to open a new tab or new window while you are pondering your answer!) ::)
Study up because there might be a written test on this next week...if these colors haven't been turned into full-fledged Avast color schemes by then! 8)

If this is your first foray into the new forum theme, if you think this is bright you should have seen what it was like first time out of the box, not pretty at all.

I don't like very bright and White is the worst and this almost matches my chosen windows XP theme, 'Zune,' which are dark Greys and Orange (almost Avast Corporate colours ;D) I also have the background colour in windows toned down from the default expanse of white.

@ Shalimar, I love the way you think.  ;D  We have suggested various color themes, and as David suggested, you should have seen what we started with....I'm still wearing sunglasses and have a migraine!  8)

@ disPlay, be lucky for those young eyes of yours.  ;)

Hmmm...thank you so much for wishing I could have "shared" in those experiences.  I especially appreciated your "thoughtfulness" after reading what SafeSurf said:

Gosh, guys, I'm soooooooooooo sorry I missed that! :D ;)

Ok, so I was originally trying to be cute!  I hope I didn't actually offend anyone because I was only trying to have some fun. ;)  After I posted it though, the thought crossed my mind that perhaps somebody really might take offense and be upset with my silliness, and that perhaps I might get into trouble for posting something like this.  I was almost afraid to come back and see if I had any replies, thinking maybe I should have simply kept my lips sealed! :-X  

By the way, the answer to my question is "wisteria hysteria"; only "hysteria" not being a crayon color! ???  I must admit that my guess would have been "fuzzy wuzzy"! ;D

Actually, I honestly do think the goldish yellow color scheme is pretty and cool 8).
But with that said, I do find it is slightly hard on my eyes; a bit overwhelming when trying to quickly see the topics listed.  Also, when composing a comment, the background "preview" section seemed to make the text less clear to glance at.  For an all-around visual effect, I think the light blue is terrific...but perhaps when the new color is ready for permanent display, everything will turn out just fine. :) ( ::) )

No offense taken Shalimar.  I actually appreciate your humor, but then again I know what you've been though helping you with other things here on the forum.   ;)  Feel free to express yourself.  :D
