I will say this - I am presently on the boards on my work laptop and it runs substantially smoother than my mobile.

Not a bad difference and quite similar on PC.
I'm now checking it out on my laptop and it's fine but I have to echo previous posts, I can't handle this new update on Android. The text is huge, one post takes up the whole screen. Was using the site on Chrome on a Samsung Note. I frequently peruse the boards on my mobile and that will probably decrease.

Certainly overall forum functionality takes precedent to color scheme. I'm not even lobbying for personal control over used skin, just eventually some color added to the background to provide contrast over the grays/blacks that are now the dominant color.

It's funny, this is one of the few times in my adult life where the color blindness actually causes "problems"...outside of the whole I can't fly fighter jets or commercial airplanes, that's been a big bummer since 5th grade

So I had the grey theme - I logged in and I have this blue theme now.

To be honest, I don't like it.
Is there any way to switch themes that I am not seeing?

I would prefer the grey back. Easier on the eyes.

Heh, well I may not be able to help you with the whole plane flying thing, but let's see if this will help with your forum experience.

Go to your login name in the very upper right corner, click on the drop down arrow, select User Control Panel.

Click on the Board Preferences Tab, under My Board Style select Prosilver, save. Then try some different parts of the site.

This is the default theme that ships with the phpbb base install. Nothing fancy, very basic, I don't even have a DLF logo there yet. But let me know if the readability is better for you.

Anyone else wanting to try the different theme can do so as well.

And fwiw, maybe you can get a drone with a vr headgear link. Almost like flying...

Thanks

KM

Hmm, and now the option to select the alt theme is gone.

I'll hold off working on all of this until later tonight. Sorry for the confusion.

This is probably just specific to me:

Being colorblind, the lack of background color/s makes it practically impossible to tell if threads have new posts or not. On mobile (iPhone/Safari), it's all just gray and black. The old version had yellows (well, that's what I saw) behind the text that helped contrast the difference in shade to indicate read v unread posts
I'm not colorblind and I can't figure anything out either. I really dislike the new theme, hopefully we can change it at some point.

Thanks for the feedback DD. Are there some specific things you are unable to do or figure out?

I'll be adding an alternate theme you can select as your default, hopefully by the end of the day. But each theme usually brings with it it's own set of pro's and con's.
