Top of the screen... menu options along the top....

Well in "Dark" mode anyway..... Gawd knows if it's on all themes!!

Do you mean 'online users'? I was hoping that it would be more obvious than having to go check.  Wasn't there a little green dot by the users name on the left hand side of the post before the forum change?

Sorry yep - I meant Online Users....
There is also a list/section at the bottom of the main Forum page.... (I think there used to be in the old format as well)...

Green dot next to name/avatar within posts....... Doesn't look like it (I hadn't noticed but now you mention it - I did used to notice that bit)


There is a fine line between "Hobby" and "Manic Obsession"

Personally i would like to have the option to change the background image to plain white.

I feel the textured background and pictures to be a distraction.

Yep, brown on brown on brown is slightly difficult to quickly read trough things.

Font size for me,  its to small,  yes you can alter the size when responding or posting,  but do a couple of back spacing and you have to reset to a favoured size font.

Was there a problem with the original skins and colours,  now it seems to be at odds.

@TaitWe now seem to have 3 backgrounds to choose from. None are plain and simple or light or dark and, as all seem to have some requirement to be coffee related, may I propose a coffee related background that really is dark to fit the dark skin.

From the post above there seems also to be something needed by those preferring a light theme.

Why does it have to be other than plain?

Anyway this is my desktop background:

EDIT: For those that are wondering why I keep harping on about this, it is because If we are to treat this as an opportunity to create something fresh then lets take onboard the idea that those who get eyestrain and those that get unnecessarily distracted need to be catered for too.

Just by the way at ~7pm today the site was not responding for about 5 mins and for a short while thereafter once it came back I could not post. I am guessing it was being worked on but if not a quick look at the logs is in order.

Thanks, I clocked it. Redis fell over but I think it's because the IPS guys are working on recovering the things that didn't convert earlier. Turned Redis off for now and storing sessions in file system for now.
