(2) Check your diction. If they're not changing the background, does that make them spoiled or brats?
(3) I'm not changing it either. I've been playing with these toys for years.
Frankly, I see no evidence that the old community is not coming back. The vast majority of the main members of the community were back here on the first day (save Dorsal, but he's a special case).
And frankly, the fact that you're among maybe five or ten people out of 700 that want the background suggests that you
are in the minority, not us.
I have nothing personal against changing the background; why would I? If you can actually show me that a large number of people are not coming back because they think the colors are washed out, or a large number of people already here think they're bad and should be changed, I'll have them change the coloring. Five or ten of your cronies isn't going to cut it though.
And watch your attitude. Whining and bitching never got anyone anywhere.</strong><hr></blockquote>
I don't understand your point 3. what was it reffering to?
5 out of 700? I'm sure there are more than that that prefer the older look but really don't care either way. and do you really thinik there are 700 people here? I see about 30-50 different names post consistently. It's amazing how many registered users there are based on the activity of the place.
as for watching my attitude.. agreed. I apologize for acting like an ass but it REALLY pisses me off when one of you closes a thread because "you think the topic is closed". Don't do that.
[quote]It's their forum. They can put up pics of Barney if they want to.
great, that's assuring
[quote]You also don't get something when your being a whiney brat either. Actually it usually assures you that you don't get it.
ot being a whiny brat. they aren't considering it and would rather close it because they think the "the topic is closed".
[quote]Today when I was at my sister's house I was using her PC and the background on here really looked bad. Maybe it was just her monitor but it looks much better on a Mac.<hr></blockquote>
see. On my PowerMac G4 with ASD CRT 17 inch its not that bad. I can live with it. But on others such as my Powerbook it doesn't look good. different browsers also make it look different.
[quote]I happen to like the new look. The only complaint I have is the following:
I think the link color needs to stand out more. Here at home with IE 5 + OS 9 it looks alright but when I look at it in OmniWeb they get terribly hard to read. It might have to do with the Cocoa AA method, I don't know. But it might help to have the links stand out more. Just my $.02<hr></blockquote>
again, this is what I am saying. the light grey color is too lite for the text size/color/font. if it was a few shaed darker it would be a lot better.
BTW, I find it interesting you deleted my one sane post about this and then chose to open this thread again. So I'll bring up the question again...
Is it not possible to offer a classic and a new theme for choice?
