At first I was like no don't take my dark red theme, and then I switched to greys fluid and ended up liking it better.

barf, my first though is this better not be permanent. I've used matte blue on purpose for 5 years now. If I have to look at the "new" look I'll probably just resign my ASM

edit: yeah still can't find one. I'm pretty sure I need the color contrast between post otherwise its just a cluster ****.

Will there be the option for the fluid once this goes permanent? I typically view PBN on my desktop computer at home which runs a 42" monitor. With the static display i can barely read it. Its about 1/2 of the screen.

no me gusta.

Me gusta only the flud!

take my green theme, but please lord let me view it full screen!

note all the wasted screen space on only a 18" monitor so sad.
I can't even comfortably read the new format on my 15". I had to lean in to figure out what the hell happened.

God this is a must please. I hate that pattern in the background. Sooooo Distracting.

Further comments- I don't like the grey at all. I've always used the default theme for PBN (matte blue). The darker one is alright but I like matte blue a lot more

Dear lord, thought I'd travelled back in time to the XGA-age when I loaded up PBN! Thanks for the Fluid skins, HATE fixed width forums. Something with a single, non-patterned background would be good too.

So far so good, just dont like the fixed width...

However we all complain every time FB changes their layout. And yet 3 months down the road no one remembers anything else.

No FB layout just gets worse and worse.

So I found that the theme had auto-switched to the 2013 fixed, but then I was able to switch it back to the familiar fluid Matte Blue. Is that still temporary? If so, what's the reason it can't be kept as an option? I mean, are we having the new 2013 themes forced on us a'la Facebook? I've read most of this thread and haven't found a real answer to that question, just the "deal with it" response.

When I see the Matte Blue theme I instantly think, "Hey, that's PbN." I like that recognition, and I'm sure others do too.


Edit: As a comparison, when Automags.org moved the site and upgraded the software (finally) the members went to work and recreated the old theme(s) as an option to keep things familiar. And I hate to say it, but the monochrome gray/black themes make this place look too much like another forum about technology in paintball.

I'm just happy there is still a grey theme. I've been using it since this little website first came to be, and having to switch to the newer white background default theme would be really jarring.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
