    Yeah, I like the blue, but can't stand the wider format. That's got to go. I do most of my websurfing on my notebook, its a PIA to navigate the main page now.

    I thought the same thing. Much more mellow. Torrid approves!

    The colors will continue to change over the next few days until we settle on something that is attractive to a first time visitor and easy on the eyes when reading threads. I'm going to do a redesign of the forum header graphic, as well so if you see our graphic changing up there don't be surprised. You can let me know if there's something you really do or don't like.

    The new left column is something I needed to do to add the "pay per click" links on the side which will, hopefully, help our financial position. Every time you take one of those links it helps us out. I will also be adding an affiliate link for our members to renew, upgrade or join for the first time. While some people don't like every stand the NRA takes, they have done more for our cause than anyone else and deserve our support. Eventually, other things will pop up over there, but that's it for now.
    May I make a suggestion?

    Possible make a few skins with various themes and allow users to choose what suits them? Have a white one, tan, blue, red and black themed background and post blocks etc...

    To change your resolution:

    Step 1

    Right click your mouse with the cursor in your desktop, but not on an icon.


    Step 2

    A pop-up menu will appear. Click "Properties", which is usually the at the bottom of the list on that pop-up menu.


    Step 3

    You will get a new menu with the title "Display Properties" in the blue bar at the top of the menu. Click on "Settings".


    Step 4

    Adjust the slider to the right for a finer resolution, adjust the slider to the left for a coarser screen resolution.


    Step 5

    Once you move the slider, the "Apply" command bar becomes activated. Click on that button.


    Step 6

    Your screen may black out for a few seconds while it adjusts. You will get a preview of the new resolution. Some resolutions aren't proportioned correctly for the monitor. You will get a new message that says: "Your desktop has been reconfigured. Do you want to keep these settings?" Click Yes if you like it, or No if you don't.


    Step 7

    The display will automatically change back to the original display within 10 seconds if you make no choice.


    Try 1280x1024 to start and see if that works. If changing the resolution makes your icons or text too small, you can enlarge those individually. There's not much reason, except for an extremely old computer (even in a laptop) to be running a 640x480 resolution, IMO.
