    Default 2011: Which forum skin (style) do you use?

    Which of these forum styles do you currently use?
    I will not eat anything that walks, swims, flies, runs, skips, hops or crawls.

    I didn't know we could choose.

    I like the black stealth one, nevertheless, that I have been using since I joined the forum.

    Best regards,

    Hmmm ...

    'Paper', the default setting, it would appear.
    All done in the best possible taste ...

    The first thing I did after creating an account was to switch to Kelisa. Not only is it the most attractive, but it is also the best fit for the mood and subject matter of the site.

    OK, I just tried Kelisa and the screen goes REALLY wide. I have to scroll sideways massively!

    I use Paper.

    Hi, you need to click on "Full Site" at the bottom of the page. This is an option which AFAIK is only available when using the mobile style, to get back to the normal, full version of the forum.

    I'm still having issues with Kelisa. Is it just me?? Everything is too wide for the screen, and I can't be bothered to scroll massive sideways. But I do like the look of Kelisa!

    Using the blackstealth skin, when you click on a persons username to access the menu with 'view profile' etc. in it all the text is too dark to read unless you highlight it.

    Thanks Korn.

    Sorry to be a pain but the bar above each post stating the time of posting and post # is also unreadable.

    I realized that when I had posted the above post, and expected you to menton it - bet don't worry, I want such comments!

    I'll have a look at it... Some parts of the forum share font colors with other forum areas, so let me know if you find something else after I hopefully have fixed it.

    Think I'm gonna switch to Kalisa.

    Blackstealth is really my favourite but when people copy & paste text or use custom font colours they're quite often unreadable without highlighting them.

    Actually, is it possible to make the bit with peoples text in lighter but keep the rest of it dark?

    No, I can't see a change to be honest.

    I hope Firestorm doesn't mind but I'm going to post a link to one of his posts that shows what I mean.

    I see - the problems is that the font color is copied along with the text, and that this simply won't work in a Style with a dark background behind the text (if/since the text is dark). The changes I made had to do with something else. I'll see what I can do.

    I've made a change now which - with some luck - should prevent this from happening in the future posts. Let me know if you see the problem occur again in new posts.

    Text should now follow the colors of the style - whichever style the poster is using, and be readable for users of all other styles.
    Alternatively, I could (also) make all messages backgrounds light (in all styles). But wait... maybe that could possibly create problems with posts containing text pasted from a user of a style with white text on dark background?

    I don't use the Blackstealth skin regularly, so I haven't seen that problem before. Does the unreadable text occur in many posts/posts from many different users?

    Hi Risker, this because I temp. have enabled color coding, in order to fix some unreadable text.
    Unfortunately, there's no good solution within the vBulletin software do remove old color coding.
    So dear all - please do not color code any text while this is going on!

    The "Geargrind" style style wasn't an option back when the poll was created.
