A new template will be live on the site for a few hours. Please do not be alarmed, its not staying (yet).

Please let me know of any issues and how it works on your phones... any comments, suggestions or weather you like it or not.

If pages do not display correctly, please empty your browsers cache or try hitting ctrl+F5 a few times really fast to force a fresh page.

Thanks!

Personally, I'd like a different color scheme, like inverting the colors of the black colored fonts and the white background, but that's just my preference. On possibility I like the thought of is minor "theme" adjustments everyone could customize in their Control Center to say, change the main site background and default text coloration.

Do right—and fear not.

I was actually working on an OD green type layout like this one .. and planning on cleaning the themes and adding a theme selector (for colors/layout) in the control center.

Good suggestions!

As to how the threads are displayed, it's a little confusing to me, but if this becomes permenant, I will just have to learn to use it

I think I like the old one better. But that's just me.

There are three types of people. Sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs. I will be a sheepdog.
"When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own homestead, his possessions are undisturbed." Luke 11:21
"And He said to them, 'But now, let him who has a purse take it along, likewise also a bag, and let him who has no sword sell his robe and buy one.'" Luke 22:36
Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth. George Washington.

I see what you mean ahoward -- The traditional thread view is much simpler I think.

Thanks for the input sheepdog! Who knows, maybe that one will be polished up with color options. grinning smiley

This is not bad, definitely different, and different always takes a little time to get accustomed to.

Id leave it for a day and see how well people respond. After a whole day of use, it might grow on us faster, especially if it came up either OD or at least slightly user controllable.

Even if its reverted to the previous format, I definitely think the recent posts side bar should stay. It makes it easier to know if its on a thread we are more interested in but havent followed yet instead of having to load in and see its not something were interested in.

It was sort of a shock to the system to log on and get a "different" forum.

But if there are better features,then I'm all for it.

“We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.”

Irrefutable FACT: Governments with a monopoly on the use of force -enabled by weapons control laws- murdered 170 million people in the 20th century alone.

Thanks for the input everyone. I don't wan't to leave it up overnight as I don't know if I'll be around tomorrow lol. I don't wan't you guys stuck with the template (its not done).

Setting the old template back. Again, if things don't look right.. ctrl+F5 a few times or clear your browsers cache.

I have to say, I kinda like the sidebar so perhaps the old layout (the one before this white one) with a sidebar would be a good compromise. smileys with beer

Well, it's gone now. But it was a bunch of posts, all in the same thread. And the thread hadn't been used since 2010.
