    In the meanwhile, may I suggest posting topics with a coloured (like red) headline? Black on grey is hard to read.

    When they first started, early this morning, the edit box was white-on-white. You literally had to type a few characters, then hit CTL-A to highlight everything, then hit the right arrow to get to the end of the selection to continue typing.

    Black on grey is nothing.

    But Shabbs' userid appears to be grey on grey.

    Oh man... so this wasn't even because of something you guys wanted to do?

    Bah.

    Hopefully it gets sorted soon.

    No way I wanted this. I liked the setup we had and now they are apparently working setting up new servers so we can't access the Admin panel even to make things live-able.

    It's really bizarre because some of the things were restored, like the banner and some of the buttons but other things are still this skull crap. Had I known we'd be stuck like this I never would have agreed to change a thing.

    The even stranger thing is that before Admin panel access was cut off I went into the Pictures Management section and all the fonts, colours and background pictures show up like the old skin/theme but don't appear on the web page. I really don't understand.

    haha. OK I managed to get into the Admin panel so I applied this temporary skin just in case Admin access gets wonky again. I'll work on tweaking it until the old them can be fully restored. stay tuned Smile

    Hit refresh and cross your fingers. It's not the old theme so please bare with me on this.

    More like the past. Just ask the members that were here from the start when I used to change the colours and theme hourly or even sooner.

    Whatever you did, DON'T change it. This powder blue is real easy on the eyes, and looks quite a bit more apealing

    Hourly? It was like every 5 mins.

    Good times...
