Seems strange it was locked, Catherine, but you could comment here.

Because I wanted people to read Don't Panic instead of reacting to latest comments on a work in progress.

I've also dealt with our viagra obsessive.

Sorry, but I find it hard to enthuse over the new look for the forum.
I found the old colour scheme far more restful on the eye; the new bright green seems very glaring.
Also, with the old layout I found it far easier to look at the topic title and the date of the most recent posting at a glance, as they were far closer together. With the new layout I find it necessary to resize the web page to just over half screen width to enjoy the same effect.
I know that sometimes change seems difficult to adapt to, particularly as one gets 'more mature in years', but I really have to agree with a previous comment about 'if it ain't broke...'.

Must admit that I find the green a bit garish. I agree with Fred.

I know it will take time to get used to it, but "if it ain't broke dont fix it" will be a comment repeated. I am sure there are many people on this Forum who would like it to have carried on the way it was. It seemed to be working okay.

For some reason I nearly clicked on the red mark at the side of each comment thinking it was information only to see it meant report it. :( :shock:

Also please can someone remind me how to correct my time difference. You think I would have remembered since I have been on here since 2008 :oops:

No doubt, we'll all get used to it ..... Not too sure about the big question mark attached to my (and others') names. Am I that doubtful?

Sadly, behind the scenes it was broke.

No Monika, that would seem to be the new default picture.
if you upload a new avatar picture then you'll get whatever you want, just read what size limits it says.

I can resize pictures if you post them and ask for an avatar sized copy back.

For those of you using a laptop or desktop style computer hover your mouse pointer over any Bitton you're not sure of, it should then tell you what it is.
