    Lightbulb New default theme

    We have added a few new custom themes to the site and were having trouble deciding which one to make the new default skin. This theme will be the main one that people will see when they enter the site, although they can be changed at will, depending on your taste. Please check them out by using the drop-menu at the bottom left of the main forum and then vote for your favorite. Also, if you have any problems or suggestions, please let us know.

    :thumbsup:

    I would like to thank everyone for their participation. I noticed that there is quite a following for the basic vBulletin default. Is this because you just don't want a custom theme, or is there something about the new themes that you don't like? Is there anything that I could change to improve them? Please let me know.

    PS...I would like to clarify that we're not eliminating the VB blue, it can still be chosen in your personal preferences. We are simply finding the theme that would make MSS stand out from the rest.

    Thanks again.

    Lower left corner of the site. Should see something that currently says "default style". You can select the others from that menu.

    Gotta say I do like the default the best. Second best is the maroon. Just something about the maroon I don't like. Believe it's a font related issue.

    I like the default theme because:

    -I prefer white backgrounds in every case. Dark backgrounds make my eyes all weird after 5 minutes of reading.
    -The other themes make the page scroll slower. Don't know how or why. Win7/1.8GHz x 2/2GB RAM so I'm not on a 10 year old machine...

    Thanks for the input. So it seems that it's not necessarily the colors that you like, but the simplicity (and a light background)?

    I tried the red and maroon for a while. Went back to the white. It just seems easier to read and on the dark backgrounds some of the links were hard to see
