    Hahaha, I rolled out ADVrider 2.0 on our 10-year anniversary and heard mostly bad and people switching back to the old style. Plus new user registrations dropped 20%, I guess because it was harder to read.

    So I switched it back for an experiment to see what happens.

    I thought my eyes were going on me or my computer was messing with my (feeble) mind (think Hal in 2001). Then I thought of checking in "Ask Baldy...". Learned something new today, skins choices. I prefer (need) higher contrast so it was nice to discover I could get that back by going to ADV 2.0 . White background with black text is high contrast too, but I find the black background SO much less fatigueing (sp?). :clap

    Reverting to the Crash forum skin also solves issues that some inmates were having with missing site buttons:

    http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=860317

    As mentioned above, we have 6 forum skins to choose from, just go to the bottom of the page and select the one you want from the drop down menu..

    On my desk top at work, I use the FRESH skin, it's ADV in stealth mode.. :evil

    Is there any way to default our computers to the 2.0 version? I miss the icon showing that I've posted in a thread. If there is a way to add that to the crash skin I'd find it way more better.

    In Crash skin, there will be a black dot on the "envelope" icon at the left of the thread index, if you've posted in the thread. [​IMG] No post, no black dot.

    I've opted for the 2.0 default. Much easier to see, maybe just because it's what was up when I joined.

    Not sure if its something I did or something with my browser? After the change to the old version I switched back to 2.0. Since then the font size is much smaller. It used to be a larger bolder type that was easier on the eyes. Then today I clicked on my ADV shortcut by accident while the site was already up on my browser and it switched it back to the larger font sized version. What the hell is up? Anyway I can keep it this way?
