    This may be true. Change your monitor settings. A lot of computers have quick adjust settings built in now. My computer lets me hit two buttons and it dims a bit. No need to search through monitor settings.

    I would imagine revising the entire look of this website is no quick task. Despite the complaints we all keep coming back. This will be old news before we know it.

    With the WYSIWYG configurations available with today's technology, I doub't it's any more difficult than changing/customizing the theme on your desktop (title bar, background, foreground, active window, inactive window, font...).

    Apathy? Nah... It's just as big of a deal as you thought.

    When the new scheme first came out I changed mine back to the old scheme because I preferred it but I see that option is now deleted.

    I don't really care.

    Given the amount of protest in the other thread when it first happened, I'd have thought there would have been more people wiling to speak out on it.

    A big deal to me, only to the point where I really don't like the choice of colors. I would prefer at least one other option and I'll speak out about it. Not one to just shrug and take it like a man. First of the year I'll change my signature back and if we get the options, great. If not, I tried, and this thread will slowly drift into the second page and fade away.

    I voted for at least 2 options.

    I liked the original color scheme, best. But I had some operating problems with it, so out of necessity I changed to the current theme. I find it too bright, but have gotten used to it.

    Ultimately, I don't really care. I'm just glad that we don't have a black background with red text

    In time we will create a new skin with software upgrades. Just creating a new skin isn't easy, but we will continually tweak the one we have to make it as good as possible.

    Thank you!!! Anything to tone it down helps.

    Thanks for the heads up, with that I'm going to close this one up.
