I tried out 3-4 different ones... and have chosen Silver for the moment.
If you switch, let me know if something doesn't work as intended and I will fix it. Some of these styles are not fully tested, especially regarding the display of chess diagrams.
Silver style feels good for this forum. Not too bright on the eyes :)
> Forums cool... till now everything seems to be working fine.
Good to hear. No technical problems have been reported so far.
> Silver style feels good for this forum. Not too bright on the eyes :-)
People have different criteria when it comes to forum styles. Let's hope everyone finds a style that they feel comfortable with. :)
I might opt for a darker background such as AquaDark or WHPortal but the diagrams don't work with those. Some of the command buttons are only placeholders with a few of the other styles, but I probably wouldn't choose them anyway.
The diagrams are very nice, but they could be considerably smaller. It would help conserve space on our monitor screens and decrease the required screen scrolling when negotiating a long thread. I think it would improve things to reduce the diagrams by 25-50% in size. In other words the new diagrams would be 50-75% of the current size.

It is actually set to one hour from the time the post was created. As an example you edited the post you mention 52 minutes after it was created.

I agree and I will reduce their size (just give me a few days). All diagrams will be affected, even those that have been posted already.
>The diagrams are very nice, but they could be considerably smaller.
So, I went back to the Rybka style, which is quite orderly, but a little too light for my liking. I generally don't like to stare into a lightbulb :-).
> AquaDark or WHPortal but the diagrams don't work with those
Fixed. The diagrams should be displayed with these styles now.
However quoted text is gray, almost the same as the gray background with AquaDark.

Suggest a lighter color for quoted text there - maybe light yellow, green, or blue.
My only problem now is that after spending some time on this forum with the dark background, the irises of my eyes open up. Then when I surf elsewhere on the internet or use other software, I get a painful blast of light from their light background screens.
I've been working on a dark background theme for Windows XP but it isn't easy. Everything seems designed for light backgrounds!? I'm convinced that dark backgrounds are better for the eyes long term, i.e. over many years.
