View Full Version : Notice the difference?

Anyone noticed the difference since an unusually active and disruptive member was banned recently?

The quality of posts has improved in the past few days, as has the participation of existing members in sensible discussions, with a bit of reasonable banter for the amusement of all.

In other words, the board is returning to what it was and should be, by removing the crap element.

So, assuming this comes from increased powers granted to the mods by the new site owner (about whose failure to deal with trolls and spammers I was rather disparaging not so long ago http://www.ww2incolor.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8176 ), it is grounds for congratulations to Procyon for taking the steps necessary to preserve the site (and his investment) from cyber vandals.

Yes, the reading has gotten much better over the last few days......less eye strain and headaches from trying to interpret posts.:mrgreen: Out of curiosity, is this a temporary ban or permanent ban for this member. (I've read where this member is bothering one of our mods in another forum, also.)
And definitely a thank you to our mods and Procyon.

Moi? Why would you want to get rid of me?. I don't think that was very nice. I hope you were joking? I am your friend. Next to Mr. Firefly, you are one of my most admired Mods. :D

The Thread is entitled:Notice the Difference.
I would like to know why my colour is missing from this site when I logged in today. is it just me?. I have no colour. I think someone took the colour away. the website is ww2 in Color, but I don't see any colour? Please help me understand what happened to the colour? It's an awful lime grey shade and the site looks funny. I don't recall reading about a site upgrade on this. I don't like the new site colour, and it gives me a headache. Is this permanant or temporary? Where is the colour??? Please help and advise me as i am confused. is it just me? Hello? Anyone?:(

Procyon changed the appearance of the site, yes. For some reason he must have forgotten to inform you though.
The tenor within the staff is positive, so it will be permanent - same as your headache.;)

The top bar is misaligned, if anyone can fix that.

If I bring my Bifocals up just right it looks okay.

This will be the skin for the forum from now on, but I will change a few things that whoever doesn't like it can change it in their user settings and go back to the previous skin.

Procyon
03-10-2009, 10:31 AM
Ok. Whoever doesn't like the skin can go back to the previous one. You can do this bt clicking: User CP > Edit Options under the Settings & Options menu, changing it to 'Blue Style' and then clicking on the 'Save Changes' button.

Can somebody tell me which style you all see? Thanks!

Thank You Procyn!

In your praise, you forget to spell correctly.:rolleyes:

Your welcome! I'll fix the header...doesn't seem to work in Firefox.

navyson
03-10-2009, 04:29 PM
Yes, thank you Procyon, having the blue screen option is much easier on the eyes. (Mine anyway.)

Churchill
03-10-2009, 06:41 PM
^Agreed. :)

Yep, definitely like the Blue better. Makes it much easier to see everything. I, too, have the little discrepancy on the 'Forum' button, though...

(I'm using Firefox, too)

Also note that the theme can be changed in the bottom left corner if you scroll to the bottom of any page on the forum.

I prefer the blue, to be honest. Easier on the eyes.

Many Thanks for that option, Procyon.

Respectful Regards, Uyraell.

header is fixed for Firefox users.

I just noticed. Nice job!

Procyon
04-11-2009, 07:00 PM
and sorry about the delay. I'm graduating from uni, so I was quite busy.

Schuultz
04-11-2009, 07:51 PM
Hey, it's not like it was a page-breaker. And I think everybody can understand that Uni goes first :D

Procyon
04-11-2009, 08:48 PM
It worked fine on IE...so I didn't notice it first. Then I switch to FF I saw the problem.

Churchill
04-11-2009, 09:26 PM
Eh, doesn't matter, do what you need to do first.
