Sorry, it's fallen a bit in priority relative to other things. I'll definitely get to it.

Obviously I am always the last to know ...
Just found the post and by the time I remembered anything about the websites I used to tinker with ...the page got long.

however, I do believe that if our community is turned loose on the subject they can find a way to edit the css better.

until then this is offered by the website I found

 Yep, that’s the one that WTVD0 suggested earlier in the thread. And I’m still in favor of it.

That last is really clean & shows off the board style very nicely IMO! ..provided the buggy menu issues with Digi aren't carried over, ofc (although they may become less obtrusive) ;)

Sorry, but I have to object to a bright green on black. I've used other forums that tried it and it strains my eyes quite badly.

Shouldn't be too difficult to tone the #bright' green down a bit tho..

That just makes it hard to read.

Besides, the vote's pretty much wound up in favour of the 'milk' theme. We just need George to implement it and see how it goes.

Well, if you can tolerate a light background, prosilver is still working, and more compact.

Prosilver looks adequate, but I really prefer a dark/neutral background to avoid eyestrain

Looks like the forum theme suddenly changed to Milk v2. Not sure if the dark-text-on-slightly-darker-background is intentional but it can be difficult to read.
