The banners are back to being a very bright blue that jump out at the eyes when trying to read a post.   It is so bright compared to the rest of the page.

You are serendipitously viewing themes and colors I'm playing around with.  They come and go within minutes.

Oh! That color bar thing is neat!  I've tried them all but ended back with the light grey blue, which I've always liked.

Ok, here's the deal.   Ive found a multicolor theme I can live with.  Some of you have seen it make an appearance a few times this evening and then disappear.   I'm not going to make it available until we have more customizations done which won't happen until Thursday night at the very earliest.    We'll be playing around with text colors and I want the header tweaked a little.   The multicolor theme has the same text color throughout all the themes so I need to find a text color for the subjects that is more palatable than the orange.  Maybe a more muted burnt orange color.  The forum default color will be the current ice blue.  At a later date I may have more customization done so that the default color are shades of warm beige and burgundy. 

I'm slinging some of the php code which is kind of comical in that I do the trial and error method.  Over the next few days you'll see odd color changes in various places and then disappear.

Is there anyway we can get back the time spent on ehell counter back? I really enjoyed it.  :)
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I just noticed that a smilie inserted into sentence does not throw the sentence spacing off! Now that is an improvement!  :D

(I don't know why that bugged me so much.)

Ahhh... I thought it was a glitch that they were all different.  Right now, the banner is a lovely shade of muted bluish lavender.

I have a question... Where can I see the threads that I am being "notified" about? I used to go to my Profile and then something like Notifications, but I don't see that anymore. It's probably really obvious...  ::)

The way the signatures work has change.  With the old board all every post made by a poster had the same signature.  Now the board is capturing (not sure that is the best word) the signatures with the post and only posts made after the signature has been changed have the updated signatures.

Does that make sense?

It makes sense to me, because that's the way it was on the old Delphooey board, if I recall correctly.

Wow!  I have 325 pages of notifications.   I didn't know there is a record of every single thread I have watched or posted!
