    Cheers all,

    A quick walkthrough on how to change the colors on your forum pages.

    First, a scavenger hunt: find this section in the bottom left hand of your screen,
    [​IMG]

    To begin the transformation, click on the style text. In the picture, this is the “Light Style - Blue” text.

    This will open the keeper of all secrets… or style window if you’re boring.

    [​IMG]

    To change your colors, click on any of the available styles. I like black personally so lets do that.

    [​IMG]

    This will close the style window and change your color to that of the style selected. BEHOLD!

    Very slick.

    The blue and white seems easiest on the eyes. The red makes my eyes bleed. I'll stick with the blue.

    I agree. Kilroy said he/she was going to work towards the original style our late Adventure Game guru - dear Randy Sluganski - presented to us.

    So far... nothing.

    Granted, I know it may be difficult to emulate the original JA+ Forums "look". But it was organic. It felt real, as if there was an actual human being behind all of this, not some bottom-line, Let's-Get-This-Mundane-Task-Over-With look.

    Doesn't whomever owns the JA+ name now care about its legacy enough to make it a lovely tribute to its originator without the obvious pretense of "Selling Games"?

    I agree, Spiritogre. This current style of the JA+ Forums really turns me off. So damn sterile and it's as if there is no one there behind it all.

    Sigh. I guess I'm still grieving the loss of Randy and what once was. Poorly, I might add, since I'm dealing with grief through anger.

    Hi Mark

    I have not have been able to truly attempt the forum style and I can not promise I will be able to get this to work.

    When I first got here, I made things black with white text, for two reasons: (1) this scheme is supposed to be easiest on the eyes, and (2) I was in a very dark frame of mind at the time. I was so depressed that I re-read Orwell's 1984 and it cheered me up.

    After awhile, however, I went back to the original color scheme. I'm not really depressed now. I'm furious. (Don't ask.) :D
