It took me a while to figure out that the choices of display styles/colors is selectable in the drop-down menu near the bottom-middle of the page.

Maybe we can finally get a "Like" button.

Yeah, I know, many will say "we don't need no stinkin' like button", lol, but once you get used to them, you sure do miss it on sites that don't have them. Great way for simple communication. Saves forum space too.

It jumped right out at me this morning, lol.

I'm not one for changes, but I may end up liking it.

Now don't go apocalyptic on me, but John once I heard about ubbt7 I like the new format.

Did you check all the styles available in the drop-down list near bottom middle of the forums page?

If one is not newer and brighter enough, it proves that no matter how hard you try, you can't please all of us?

Try being a Disc jockey once,
You can't play music, that pleases all the people at the dance.

Most jukeboxes are setup to play the music in a random order, to please the most people at a time..
If it is close to bar time and you dump some money into the jukebox don't expect to hear all your selections before the bar closes.

I like the new format. It seems easier to read!

My guess is that members who had formerly "selected" the default style, are the posters who are remarking about the change?

I did not notice any change, but, this thread has caused me to look at the selections/drop-down menu at the bottom of this page.

I now have chosen an old-man, make-it-more readable "large print edition" selection. This keeps me from "zooming in".

The other selections are a very nice assortment. (I might try the "goth" style next halloween).

Happy Thanksgiving

The default style is "ubbthreads stock" and the "line-height was increased.
My preference would be keep "ubbthreads stock" as a default and drop the line height one notch down.
I'm using a Firefox browser, to make it look right I zoom down to 90%.
W's look funny at a 100%.
