Hope this gets fixed quickly. Its like staring at a bulb.
I have to say this again, I detest this white/blue color scheme. I only ducked in here to see if it had been fixed yet and now that I see it hasn't, I'm out until some time tomorrow. I will check to see if it is back to normal then. But I don't plan on spending much time here while this is the only skin I can have. As I said, this gives me a headache.
I really hope it gets fixed soon. I appreciate the owners, who ever they are, working on this to clear it up quickly...
Not everyone likes it (me included). I suspect the newer members who did not dig into their profile settings are just fine with it, they don't know any better.
TN Mike, if it gets too bad, just keep an eye on your email responses to this thread for when it's safe to come back. If I remember, I'll send you an emai via this site.
This is also driving me nuts. I hate the white interface with a passion.
As much as this site means to me, if I cannot select the grey background of DC Interim (which is no longer an option under settings ->General settings->skintype) or an equivalent 'easy-on-the-eye' background, I won't be back much-if at all!
I've logged out; re-booted the computer; deleted all cookies, etc., etc.,
Hope Admin/Mods are reading this....I hate to lose this experience.
If they can't get us back the option, perhaps they can tone down the blinding white background.
Its being worked on...
I think it may be the way bright white contrasts with the blue. The eye sees the softer color "blue" in a different way than it sees harsh bright "white" light. I believe it really weaks havoc with those of us who may have certain "light" sensitive vision problems.
That must be what it is. I had an operation on my right eye in 2004 and since then that eye is very bright light sensitive. A sunny day doesn't bother it but a bright overcast day does (bright white) and a lot of fluorescent lighting effects that eye as well.
We were trying to keep the old skin, but there's lots of holes in it and it causes a lot of issues with some browsers. We had to finally do away with the old skin to fix some of the issues people were having :/
