    New dark 'skin'

    I found a higher contrast 'skin'. You can try it by selecting 'Blackend' from the style selector at the bottom of the page. Let me know what you think. It looked like the best of the free ones.

    And, FYI on other 'issues', i'm cataloging them and will prioritize and address them as time allows.

    It's more neutral, which is better IMHO for showing photos - but it's a bit industrial looking. Are these styles merely CSS ? If so, I don't mind having a peek and coming up with something.

    Yes, pretty much all CSS. Have at it :^).

    I like the darker skin--it's much easier on my tired old eyes.

    Thanks, Tom.

    I made one called "Gray". You'll have to refresh your page in order for it to appear (on the list on the extreme lower left of the page).

    Thanks for this. It helps! I like the gray most - much easier to read.

    Ken, "Gray" for me is a big improvement, although I would like to see the text darker, maybe simple black. The added contrast would be easier on my eyes, which have their own set of problems.

    There's quite a few vbulliten skins available. We'll just have to wait for things to stabilize, and our mods can update the skins and templates as they have time.
