What Board style are you using?

You can chose the colours of your interface with the Trekbbs by toggling the style chooser on the left hand bottom corner of your screen.

'You feel me?

Are there more styles for paid users?

I'm having a waking daymare now contemplating what a bronies might do if a paid account could really stylize the Trekbbs as easily as those Muppets do with their facebook pages.

I use Big Blue.

Re: What Board style are you using?

No extra styles for paid members.
Also, you can go visit Brony Kingdom (www.bronykingdom.org) if you want to see what styles we have (it's in the lower left hand corner, like this board).

I use "New Blue."

New Blue. Big Blue is like old skool BBS (like the way theforce.net used to look). The grey one is just depressing.

Re: What Board style are you using?

I tend to use the defaults on forums. The white on dark gray is easy for me to read because I have very poor vision, with a combination of macular degeneration and what appears to be a detached retina in one eye.

Re: What Board style are you using?

I use old grey as it's the only one that doesn't hurt the eyes.

Re: What Board style are you using?

^ Me too. I can't stand looking at the Blue version, it makes me squint. There's no nostalgia value I attach to Blue, I just like Gray better.

There should be a theme contest. Maybe one could have a large, faint Starfleet insignia in the center of the screen.

Re: What Board style are you using?

I can barely grade the difference between the depressing new blue and the antiseptic old grey.

I suppose if you are medically predicated towards one style over the other two, then you just have deal with the consequences of your limitations and weaknesses, curse god, and muddle on.

Of course my eyes are not strong either, but what I did is whack up screen resolution to clown shoes ridiculous until my cursor is bigger than a bumble bee, and everything else proportionate to that.

I am worried that if more people don't vote for the (noble and stately) New Blue it will disappear and be replaced by some kind of vile pink.
