Default theme may discourage new users. *Default Theme Updated.
The red-on-black default theme is really ugly to look at and I had to hunt around for the option to change it. I think a theme that's easier on the eyes (eg. Android) would encourage more people to use the forum.

I think the Black and Grey theme is the only one that doesn't give me eye cancer.

RE: Default theme may discourage new users
The red-on-black theme is rather ugly. It's hard to read as well, seems childish. I use the default blue theme, it's easy on the eyes.

Yes they can choose, but I think ConCen could present a better default theme for new users and for when we like to link in. Switch up the default to default IMO.

RE: Default theme may discourage new users
Was quite happy to log on and see the new "default" theme, much easier on the eye.

The red theme seemed a bit angry ! Why so serious ?

The Black and Grey theme is gone. It was the only theme that didn't give me eye cancer... I guess I can live with the default theme, too. Thanks, Admins, I'm sure you mean well (no sarcasm here)

RE: Default theme may discourage new users
Thank god I found the default theme -- I didn't know how to change the "black on grey" -- geez -- no one can read black on grey -- that's why this website is dead!!

Hello?

White on black or something like that is readable.

But I had to find this thread to figure out how to change the color scheme of the website. Big format problem people -- I pointed this out what 6 months ago....

It's obvious that's why concen gets hardly any posting.....

Still keep going with the same color theme if you want a dead website. No biggie I guess.

LIKE any of us here moderating are here to decide and choose what color themes OTHER people prefer to use !!! Dodgy

Hmmm Hempel.... that's probably WHY we've given EVERYONE the option to PICK whatever theme or skin they want ! I don't know about you.... but I'm here b/c of content.... not colors.

LOL Well I'm sorry something so simple got you so worked up. If it was that big of a deal... you could have PMed any of us for help or advice.

You don't even need to log in to change the themes or colors. This is accessible to ANYONE from the bottom right hand corner of the screen... ON EVERY PAGE.

I've been out for less then 24 hours.... to come back to 4 flippin pages of new posts!

When I go out to see what are fellow comrade or competitor websites are offering... more often then not... I'M GLAD members aren't bringing LOADS OF BULL SHIT here.

*shakes head...

My frustration is solely due to the fact that YOU can change the themes yourself... at any time. We tried to give people lots of options.... guess it wasn't good enough for Mr. Hempel though. Whatever.

RE: Default theme may discourage new users
Yeah, I enjoy the options @ the theme selector, always loved that for forums. Gives it a new feel every time I switch.
