    With any luck it'll be green without lots of huge white spaces.
    Retro is very in right now.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    Oh no
    I still use the old-style green forum layout and get confused whenever I get logged out and it comes up blue and weird!!
    Don't know how I'd cope with a totally new one!
    Some strange comments on that first thread linked above. Trolls? Nest of vipers? Wow. Glad I only use the comping board!!

    I'm a big fan of the green one. Can't get on with the blue and white despite giving it several goes so keeping my fingers crossed that whatever happens we will still be able to access green. I think there are quite a few of us out there who would be sad to see it go.

    I have posted this on that forum announcement, note especially the end date search mentioned in 3):
    SEARCH - Suggestions for improvement

    1) Please can search NOT be restricted to 300 results.

    2) Please can we have Search within Search Results
    eg. Search for xxxxxx, then search these results for yyyyyy

    3) Please can Search work properly for a multi-word string in quotes
    eg. Search for "xxxx yyyy zzzz" returns only results that contain "xxxx yyyy zzzz" and excludes such as "xxxx was once yyyy and sometimes zzzz" ie. No implied OR or AND operator when quotes are used. On "Competitions Time" this would mean searching "E: 09/10" would actually work.


    thanks

    Just wondering who said it was broken?

    I don't think it is. I think it works perfectly fine with the green skin set up.

    The blue & white is hard to read and gives me a headache.

    As long as we can tinker around with it, and set it to how we like, I'll be okay.

    Be Lucky.
