Already commented, in other thread, but I'll put it here too: the color scheme is wicked harsh on the eyes. Can it be changed to resemble the old one, or do individuals have the ability to customize their experience once they login?

Im not 100% sure how you take a picture from a modern cellphone and get it to be 16 KILOBYTES and 80x80 pixels to be an avatar picture.

I'm fairly sure the rule was always 80x80 and 16kb. You can resize the image using photoediting software. There's free software out there, such as Gimp, or Photo Pos Pro 3(which is what I'm using now).

Go to you user name at the top right and select user control panel, once in there you can go to board options and change black to prosilver.

Ah, yes... this works much better for me-- thank you.

Nice job on the upgrade. I'm sure once we get used to things, it'll be a lot easier and more pleasant to use. :cheers
