New dark skin launched!

A dark skin has just been added to the style selector. To read more about it, visit this news post:

New Dark Forum Skin - Pentax Camera News & Rumors - PentaxForums.com

There is also a new dark yellow scheme with more contrast, as well as a dark blue scheme. All can be selected via the style selector at the bottom of the page.

Winner. More choice, and this one is a welcome addition to the skins available. Thanks for the constant work on the forum.

Hi,

I can't get the style selector to work to change from the black skin as it doesn't give me a choice.

Regards.

Loving the dark skin, the greys are very nice. Just a couple of comments, all meant constructively

1. the red hyperlinked text (in the body of a post, not the author name) seems to be a bit too bright. This might just be because it is bold (?) as well, the non-bold red text in Adam's sig isn't quite so blinding.

2. the dark blue moderator names are a bit too dark and hard to see.

Looks very nice, Adam. Good work. The gray is very nice for viewing photos, though I'll stick with the light background for reading, as it's easier on my eyes. Thanks much for the choice and hard work you put in on this. BTW, the new dark skin works great with an older Safari browser as well as updated Firefox.

I noticed these, too, Thoughton.

Great job Adam et al !
I am sure lots of people will like the "new skin".

Personally, I liked the overall effect at first but after a few minutes, the new dark style with very contrasty red lettering became a real annoyance for me, although I can survive with the forum default style which is mostly white with red accents ... not so contrasty.

Some people will experience visual "problems" with a very dark background and "light and flashy" foreground/lettering ... I am one of those.

So, I am back to the default style and I switch to the classic green once in a while to relax my eyes.

I agree - like the dark skin, hate the bright red lettering. Something more muted like a light grey would work better for the foreground/lettering.

It was hard on the eyes, so I changed back.... I still think it's a great idea if a different font color could be selectable.

Not a moment too soon. My eyes are just fried this morning. No picture taking for me today unfortunately. I can barely see to type this. Everything is all blurry today. Thanks, this really helps and it looks nice besides!

Much better indeed!
I would still like the lettering a little less "bright", but, nonetheless a very good change!

Thanks Adam!

Steve - it's on the left side of the black bar at the bottom of the page. I'm using FF and Chrome on PCLinuxOS, and it's working for me.
