I personally prefer the white so you are not alone :). this new optional BG is for those that disliked the white.



I also prefer the white over the dark theme. I find it less strenuous to use the light theme over the darker colors

I think it is appropriate that the new logo next to the title in the browser tab looks like a shark fin protruding from the water, when all small like that, considering that this website has seemed to have jumped the shark.

Background looks good, but everything has slowed
down again. Takes 7-8 seconds to load anything.
It was real fast the first few days. This always happens
here, every time they update the server it's fast at
first, and then slows back down in a few days.

They could clean up the database by purging non participating members. There's about 4,000 of them. That can't be helping the speed.

Tried the dark background with light text again, just for fun.
Still not fond of it but was not tempted to puke on the screen this time.
But this reply? Well it goes back to the small almost black text on a large almost white background. If I were sitting in a dark room, reading the light text on a dark background, and then hit reply or quote and this screen jumped out at me? I'd probably fall off my barstool, once again......

I think I will change back to the latest former, and leave the latest latter to those that like it.

Nice try though! 2F

Ps: Still think the Avatars should be bigger, can't tell much about Dodsferd's latest.
If you/they/we/it even like the 'Avatar concept' that is...
I have looked at some under magnification and still can't figure out what I'm looking at.
I did not specifically mention BABB's, or sevaral others in particular, no I did not. ;-)
Youuuuuu MIGHT be a 'rascal' if.......(nevermind ;-)...2F

Mine is of the Cessna 150 I earned my pilot's license in, with two folding chairs under the wing. Another pilot on here recognized it immediately; no one else has said anything either way. It's distorted the same way all my other attempts have been, making something round into a tall oval by compressing the sides.

The dark background worked ok for me, but not all of the site adapts to the setting; for example, PM's are still in thin black font; against a dark background, they're unreadable. Also the blue and green names work ok on it, but the red "dithers" (I don't know the right word for it, the pixels zig-zag sort of) and is very hard to read. All FWIW; I'm back to the lighter background as well.

I definitely noticed, I just didn't say anything. I pass the local strip every day on my route, they're one of my stops. I think about you and our convo every single time =)

PMs are light grey on dark grey like quoted text here, it's really hard to read them.
