    Default [ot] Do Not Adjust Your Televisions

    I'm playing around with the color scheme right now, so no, there's no glitch on this end or yours.

    Yeah, I purposely did the quotes that way. Unfortunately telling it to do that also tells it to change the go buttons. Not sure if I'll stick with it or not.

    Problem is, CODE is now black text on blue background, which makes it unreadable. I came across some really funny statistics, but I need to CODE them to show comparisons. I assume you just need to change CODE text to gold.

    Yeah, I can "try". Meaning I know what to switch, but won't know until I try if it will effect any other text or not. I'll go switch it now, and you let me know ASAP 'cause I'm going to sign off for the night pretty soon.

    Well, I tested it myself and it seemed to work all right. So now code is gold, too.

    I'm not a big fan of this particular color combination for the quotes. Just my .
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    What do you think would work (besides the obvious answer of what it has been)? I'm open to trying suggestions.

    Can you flip the blue and gold? What's bothering me is the black type on the blue background. Can't see who's 'responsible' for the nested quotes.

    The submit and preview buttons (and some others are yunreadable here). I was about to go searching for new video card drivers

    Quoted text looks fine to me... tho it looked fine before too.....

    Hmm. That would also make the submit/preview buttons easier to read again. Good idea. *goes off to try it*

    Now the thing is, the blue text is almost pointless as is and would be easier to read in black.

    But before that happens, I may try going the other way and making it more ABA-Pacer blue, to brighten it up. May work, may not work.

    You're definitely on the right track.

    But I'm such a Pacers dork that I always configure my "windows" color scheme to navy blue and gold.

    I like it.
    As is with the almost purplish-blue? It's the same blue I was using the other way earlier.

    Think I should try a more "blue" blue (thinking maybe the retro-jersey blue)?

    I suppose there's always black.

    I like the new color scheme. I held off commenting until now because I figured you would tinker with it a few times. Did not want to complain as I see I have a reputation for complaining about the color schemes

    You do, don't you?

    I guess we did switch back to orange links because of you and how the blue "hurt your eyes"

    Also, did anyone even notice that I switched the grey border of the whole page with a light blue?

    The blue background is too dark for my taste. The yellow reply boxes in the other layout are cool though. Some of the Emoticons don't stand out as well against the blue background. At least we still have the sub-silver option.

    Huh?

    This IS subsilver I'm talking about? Are you using that other one? That's just something I was messing around with and didn't bother to tell anyone about because it's not finished. Probably never will be. I think we all use subsilver, not "Pacers Digest", as I called it.
