That makes sense. And now I see why I couldn't add website - same deal. This is very cool to stop the spamming.

Sheesh, have you seen Lejendary? Bad news there. Spamming and hacking rampant! They could use with some of these new anti-spam features!

I think we should insitute corporal punishment for spammers. Or is this too harsh?

Anyone else hate this white background?

I know Steve is changing it to get in line with the site, so perhaps as a temporary measure to save our eyes....

It's a bit too dark for me and alot of black on black. Something to offset it might be good, especially for those new Crusaders who will find their way here and have to dig around to find everything. Some color might help make things a bit easier...oh, and that all important "mark all threads read" button.

Well, I don't want to monkey with it too much if Steve is going to have it changed to match the new site anyway, but I'll see what I can do to tweak it.

As for the "Mark All Threads" button, I'll see what I can do.

As of right now, each forum should have a "Mark all topics read" link at the top right of the forum table. As far as a single place to "Mark all forums read", I'm going to have to keep looking.

I do not like the new theme......

The white background was good. The windows XP stuff could go, however.

I'm going to see if I can tweak some more white into the forums. I think I'll stick with the Blue/Gray for the moment. It's a bit nicer than the black.

The index looks good, but when viewing a post, it is a bit dark. If you could tweak some more white, that might do the trick!

One might just have to type in bold white text for a while.

Couldn't you just make the theme user-configurable? I've seen several phpbb boards that have this feature.

Now this I like. That black/white about burned me eyes out!

Fiff, I see you have found the place to change the template. I did about 45 of them last week until Peter told me to quit!

Blue & Gray is much much better than that Win XP theme - thanks for changing it.

I hope FreeYABB can be convinced to host a custom phpbb template for the place, so's it can be duded up to match aztecman's new look for the TLG website. FreeYABB support says they won't do this but we will see if make their save vs. Persuasive Troll Lord.

The black type on gray background is just too hard for my old eyes to read. Is there a way for a user to change the color of the type to white?
