I nuked the forums...

Trying to update our forum software this afternoon (Feb 3 around 3pm EST) and the forums came crashing down. I restored from a backup. We lost no posts, but if you see anything weird on your end, let me know.

These little green men are supposed to be crawling out of my screen, right?

Eh, yeah that is a new feature I added. On another note, you may need to have your doctor check if you're having any medicine interactions.

So I got the forum update to go through early this morning, but it looks like our default dark theme didn't work well with it; several menus were messed up, as well as some font (character) issues.

I'll set the style for the default "ProSilver" for now, while I look for something else.

Oh man! This is pretty stark! I've gotten so used to the other theme. Hopefully you can find a good replacement!

So the little green men may have been a weird medicinal thing, but all the drop-down menus defaulting to being dropped down seems weird. They weren't doing that this morning.

Are they doing that for you now? That was one of the errors I saw using the original theme, but it went away when I switched to this default theme.

If you go to your User Control Panel, and select Board Preferences, you can now choose "Prosilver Rust" under My Board Style. I am still changing colors manually, and there are quite a few menus that still need adjusting, but for those of you who want eye relief right now, go try it out.

If you see any colors that are really problematic (like you can't see the font over the background) let me know and I'll try to get them changed.

I switched the style from ProSilver to ProSilver Rust and the formatting cleared up, now.
