    Suggest you go to an ecru or egg shell background instead of the white. It would be kinder to those with older eyes.

    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.

    Very cool colour scheme change. Kind of jumps out at you when logging on.

    I had to switch back to the old "skin"! I liked the new look, but the bright white was just too harsh on my old eyes! A more subdued tone would be much better!

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

    Just don't understand why the change.

    I just wish you could hold the mouse over a thread and read the first few lines like other vb boards.
    I'll try to find out why this feature is not working. Pretty sure we can get it going :)

    REALLY like it...easy on the eyes. Also I think the ads "stick out" better.

    The "look" is fine - I really don't care one way or the other.

    I _AM_ noticing, though, an annoying delay in response to my attempts to page down or up, or to hit "back".
    Is there a new server, or did someone remove one of the power plugs?

    In case you wonder if it's my connection...

    I'm on FIOS, with a 25/25 connection. This slowness is new.

    I just noticed that we now have "Reps". Not sure what to think of that. But, how does one give a rep to someone?

    I'm not a fan of the white background, but the rest looks great to me. This has been and continues to be the best run forum I've found.

    Keep up the good work, and, THANK YOU!

    If you liked the previous look better you can switch back to it. I just did and it was like what I expect it will feel like when we move back to Tennessee. Just like coming home. Much easier on my eyes. I have one eye that is a little light sensitive and the white background was really starting to bug that eye.

    Just go to the top and find "Forum Actions" and click it. Then go to general settings and scroll down to skins. Pick the DC Interim skin. That's the one just before this new blue/white scheme.

    I'm also a member of another USA carry forum. Their forum has gone down hill a LOT lately because of all the IN YOUR FACE advertising. They not only have ad banners at the top, but, they have all sorts of ads "IN" and between each and every post!

    I can hardly stand to go there any more. I for one, do NOT like ads for companies I've never heard of appearing in my posts!
