    New look

    The new gray/black format on the forums is quite difficult to read for someone like me who wears rather strong corrective lenses. Is there another option to change the appearance of the forums? If not I'll have to stop visiting daily as it's very taxing on my eyes and I need to save my vision for sites that don't cause eyestrain, even though I love Garth.

    I don't care for the gray/black either. I can read the text, but I can see how it will strain my eyes over time. I too wear strong contact lenses.

    It was a temporary skin until we could get some better options loaded. I have 3 options up now, and I'll get a lighter colored option up shortly.

    There is now a white/high contrast skin available for you.

    At the bottom of the page, there is a dropdown menu for the four different PG options plus the plain bulletin board skin. I didn't find a PG one yet that gives me anything other than white text on a black background, but that may be because I'm using Internet Explorer. It's better than the black on gray, but I hope we get another option with a light background and dark text.

    Am I missing something? I only see four options in the dropdown and they're all black - Black, Chrome, Alternate Black and High Contrast.

    We have rolled back some of the styles for now. The colors don't match that well with the logo at the moment, but at least everything is readable! We'll work on getting some new skins up this week.

    We have now added an improved "Mobile" style for paid subscribers. You can access it from the Style Chooser at the bottom, and still can access the forums directly at http://m.planetgarth.com

    You'll also notice that anything you post using this style will include "Posted via PG Mobile" at the bottom.
