Classic Skin 04-06 RIP

  1. Jan 24, 2006 #1
    PF Classic Skin went into retirement late last year. However the time has come to put Classic to rest. Later tonight PF Prime will replace Classic as the alternative skin.

    This is a sad day! Another milestone for PF. I have to say that I do like Prime a lot. Thanks again. :)

    i do not like the two options. in fact i cannot stand them. they are really unusable, hard on the eys and slower loading. hence i am also in retirement for the time being, until i grow a new thicker skin.


    thanks for the memories. and good night missus calabash.....(explain it to them, reaaally old guys.)

    I agree with mathwonk, I for another cannot stand Prime and miss the Classic skin. Why did it have to go? Cannot it be kept as an option?

    If you two could be more descriptive on what things you don't like. I can see someone being indifferent to the skin, but it's a neutral skin with "cool" colors with no flash and less intensive graphics. How can you "hate" that?

    Come on guys! You get to like this new skin even more than the classic. You know at first I couldn't stand the new skin and thought the colors are intolerable. But now I really get used to it. Anyway I guess you miss the classic skin because of your PF memories!

    The new skins are too flashy and hard on the eyes. The old one was infinitely better.

    If we have a selection of skins with different personal preferences for each, why delete one option that some find easiest on the eyes?

    I wasn't too keen on the new skin when it first came out, but after a week or two it'd really grown on me. Give them a while to get used to them, and then see what you think.

    My sentiments exactly. When my page loaded today I couldnt believe that there was no Classic skin :frown:

    It is the same for me, I just switched to using Opera as a browser and was looking all over for how to change back to classic. I suppose I just have to say I am not a fan of everything trying to appear chrome.

    At least all the contrasting lines have gone, this is much easier on the eyes. I especially like the low-profile edit/quote buttons. Sleek :wink: I do agree it the chrome is still dark, I wouldn't mind for the light grey to be a tone lighter (even though it is already lighter than the Nexus).

    Prime is acceptable, but I am one of those who stayed with the older classic.

    I prefer simplicity and I like the blue - or rather my visual cortex prefers the neurological response associated with the Classic scheme. :biggrin:

    But I will adapt. :smile:

    Indeed! Seconds, to that.
    Where is the spectrum of choice for color options? ...

    Most forums don't even offer a choice and you people are complaining that you have two to choose from! How about thanking Greg for going out of his way to create a second "no frills" skin?
