I miss being able to tap "alerts" on my mobile without going into my profile. No complaints on the laptop.
I have an idea for Matt that I'm going to discuss with him later. This won't be implemented immediately, but we'll see what we can do.

Yeah, we've noted that in previous replies. You can:
Scroll to the bottom and it's there
Tap the right edge of FORUMS up top and it will create a drop down
Go landscape mode and it should appear.

We are working on a better solution.

I'm sorry, but there are no options for other themes.



I'm very surprised you're having issues with the current theme. Everyone else seems to be enjoying it very much. Can you provide the specific page that's causing you so much discomfort?
Light blue lettering on a white background is an awful design choice.

You made your point that you don't like it so no need to repeat your distaste. And you seem to have been the only one to complain out of all the active users. I personally find it easy to read and enjoy the color choices.

Gosh, sir, maybe you didn't see where Chimpie asked me what I didn't like and what was wrong with it. I was just responding to Chimpie. No need to bite my head off. Gosh.

Hes not biting your head off, you noted your complaint in a previous post and Chimpie asked you to specify on why the light blue lettering on white is a bad design. Personally I find it easy to read and like the current design/ format. Maybe try turning down the light intensity on your laptop, computer, phone, or tablet. Just some helpful advice.

Your reply is far more tactful and less head-bitey, which I appreciate. Would sure be nice if others followed your lead. But yes he did bite my head off. Grandma just glued it back on.

The light blue lettering of the forum titles on the main page could be a few shades darker to give it more contrast with the white background.

Could the words "Discussions" and "Messages" on the home page be changed to a be a column header? Seems a bit busy to have them on the page 21 times each. Or a broader question, is the number of discussions and messages in each forum really important anyway?

Good ideas, I agree with looking at the shade of blue we're using. Thanks for pointing out the gratuitous use discussions and messages, there has to be a better way!

I made the new link color several shades darker. Is it any easier to read?

Finding it quite nice. Much better improved user interface.

Nice new digs.
