Hope this goes about the look of the forum

Took me a bit of time to find how I could change the look to something pleasing.
(http://forums.steves-digicams.com/pr...do=editoptions , below on the screen 'Miscellaneous Options' and then Forum Skin.)
And after changing to the light theme, not bad.

I only don't understand the need for the black theme (with red buttons) that you get by default. I can't understand why you would put something up that looks that bad as the first thing new members would see.

If the site gets more stable I'm for the change.

I much prefer vbulletin over the software they were using. The site was slow and for the longest time I had cookie problems from any computer that I logged in from. This is much better IMHO.

It seems faster, I am working on liking it better.

I agree on the default setting being unpleasant looking and hard to read.

It's much much faster, I perfer the light theme. I think it's much easier to use as well.

I think it's a getting used thing.
I have always used the default skin and I like it! But all pictures are gone from my (and everyone elses) old threads.
I can understand the storage problem, but it's a pity when you want to refer someone to an older thread.

Over all i like the change. For my old eyes its easier to read. However I just am not that sure that The Much larger Format is good. I was Shocked to find that this months Challange went from 3 pages to 20 pages.

Once you get used to it you'll like it I'm sure. Like the new post option.
