Wow, that was a pretty cool experience. The change / new look occurred in the midst of a search function. :cool:

Yeah, I've got green as well! (I used to have than tan coloured scheme).

News to me, anyway, so it looks like there's some upgrading going on behind the scenes! :)

You got grey? I got green everywhere at my end. I like the new look though...

Semper Fi!

The only green I have is the line that has the date and number of your post. The entire background is lite grey though. I thought for a second my computer went into safe mode. :confused:

btw, you can change the colour of your "forum scheme" at the very bottom of the page. There's a drop-down box that you can select between... each gives a different colour scheme as well as a high-contrast one if needed.

That's always been there, but just mentioning it in case anybody wants to experiment to find their new "favourite colour" for the forums.

There are multiple styles available if you don't like the default. You can choose the one you like best either by visiting your User CP, or via the dropdown menu at the extreme left bottom corner of the forum.

There is also a "hight contrast" style that used somewhat larger font.

I tried each of the ALT 1 to 5 and the High Contrast but I couldn't get it back to how it was before. I actually prefered it the way it was, how can one set it back to the original scheme?

The original scheme (of the new ones) is called "Warfare HQ Discussion Forums vBulletin 3 Style". It's the top option in the drop-down menu.

The only way the font changed is if your were previously using the light blue "high contrast" theme. There is still a high contrast theme available with larger fonts.
