    Hi bunker, click on the "Forum Actions" tab in the dark blue line at the top, then hi the General Settings Tab, you can change it in there.

    I was alarmed at first, but figured out how to change back to the previous color scheme.

    The white background was/is hard on my eyes

    You can click this link: http://www.defensivecarry.com/forum/...do=editoptions

    Then scroll down to near the bottom and set the "Forum Skin" to whatever you choose. The blue version is Defensive Carry v2.

    Thank you very much. Just like this community it's a team effort. We do appreciate the feedback (both positive and negative)

    Edit: BTW, where at in Costa Rica are you? I spent a lot of time down in Quepos/Manuel Antonio there and hope to go back, and possibly have a second home one day there. Loved it! Just hard to get the locals to fix stuff in a timely manner :)

    Damn Tico Time :)

    I fully agree 110% The new color scheme is way harder on the eyes. It is significantly more uncomfortable to read now.

    Is this the default color scheme? Or was a decision made to go with the white background?

    Thanks much Hiram for sharing these instructions. I was about to go blind.

    It was like someone flushing the toilet while you are in the shower. Quite a shock. Especially while nursing a Migraine.

    Well, it is never boring around here. Good work to Bumper and all the admin and moderators.

    Yes, I reset back to the original look. Although the V2 isn't bad, it's a bit bright for me.

    As before, my concern is the advertising. It's A-OK to greet the viewer with the wall of banner ads on the first log-in, or visit, whatever the "landing page" experience is. Thereafter, during a viewing session, while browsing topics, the user should not have to "scroll down" a full page to clear the banners.

    No other website I know slaps the user in the face like this. Slows down reading, is irritating, and sort of by default starts making the user hate the advertisers. There's an art to these things, people. Softly, softly, catchee monkey. This is massive overkill. Tone it down and scale it back a tad.

    I like it! The white is easier on my eyes, it provides more contrast for reading. And I don't need to scroll down as far to get past all the sponsors. That's nice, too.
    I just wish you could hold the mouse over a thread and read the first few lines like other vb boards.

    I agree, it's a nice change and easy to navigate. I really like the "TapTalk" capability too..

    Two thumbs up!

    I'm one of the old guys and dislike change. But I can live with it. My biggest concern is the Banners display. In the past I felt I had a good position with my A&G Custom Gun Leather Banner, now I don't even see the banner.

    Every once in a while I see it in the upper right corner for a few seconds.

    Just don't understand why the change.
