I must admit the new skin is growing on me.........................slowly..................... its nice and all, I just dont care for the new icon graphics. Its sorta like the win xp thing. I cant stand it after a few days and have to set the tool bar back to classic mode in that too! I really like the old logo on the top header with the O-scope, I dont like this new one too much, but I do think this new version has a more modern feel to the posts within a thread. I dont like how theres no longer the glowing light to tell if someones online. I think the main reason why everyones reacting to it is becasue it was a radical jump from the old style. People are more used to gradual changes. I feel bad for greg as he put in alot of time and work. More shades of grey would help, its too Monotomous. Its like were in a concrete prison built in the year 3000. But for now I will stick to the classic style and change it once in while for fun. Thank god we can change it though! ;-)

I for one love the new skin. Looks alot more clean and efficient. The banner in particular is very nifty!:cool:

Afterthought : You do all realise that this thread gives a perfect example of why democracy actually works as a political system, don't you?

I don't find the new look to be successful. The problem is that everything's too suggestive of metal and appears psychologically "cold" as a result.

I like it. I don't understand the visceral rejection of these kinds of changes in our society. It reminds me of the hullabaloo over the new (big head) US currency. People hated it at first. Then they added the color and people hated it. NOw the $20 looks normal. Get used to it, it's fine.

As you can see, we definitely tossed Evo's lace curtain suggestion.
What are you talking about? :confused: That's beautiful lace around the border of the... oh, never mind. Apparently there's a spider living in my monitor. :redface:

Having seen three or four major changes in the appearance of PF since I joined, this is the first one that I haven't liked after the initial "Wow, everything's different!" wore off. I'm not prone to any viceral objections to change per se.

Personally, I really liked all the initial US currency changes almost immediately. When the second change happened, the addition of color, I liked it instantly, and still do. Change, as such, doesn't bother me.

Quite a Wow, this change. It's not as comfortable as the old skin, but I'm either open-minded enough to give it a try, or too lazy to bother switching back:smile:.

New LOGO!!!

Hi.
I really have problem with this new logo of PF. I believe the past appearance was much more better.
Do you think so???

Ok, I wasn't a huge fan of the new skin, but I thought I'd give it a go. Except when I am using it and I try to go advanced reply, the page doesn't load, and some threads don't load at all. Is anyone else having problems with this?

I love the new skin. It's a lot more stylish. Anyone who disagrees is a communist.

For anyone with Windows xp who can't get enough of new looks, try this:

Start>control panel>accessibility options

pick the "Display" tab

then put a check mark in the box next to "Use High Contrast" and then hit "Apply" at the bottom.
