I was working on both forums a few days ago, and thought this place needed to have more of its own identity away from RC10Talk. I'm not so much a fan of "light" themes but thought this one fit the bill. I can always set the old dark one back as default at any time.

You can also switch back to AcidTech as your personal default in your User Control Panel.

I agree with you which is why I went into my settings and set it back to the way it was before. Just follow the instructions above.
A off roader may be able to jump and run around a track. A on roader may be able to run circles around the road but a monster truck will run over anything and everyone.

If you go to the top of the page, you'll see your name at the lower right corner of the header, where you go to check your PM messages.

1 - Click your name and it drop down a menu
2 - Click "user control panel"
3 - In the header of the user control panel click "board preferences"
4 - Third item from the bottom is "my board style", it is here that you can choose between "Dirt Light", the white background, and "Acid Tech", which is the black background that you're used to.

Seems like the consensus is that people prefer darker themes here. That's cool, I can change it back. I just thought we'd tryout something a little different for a bit.

Too funny, I was soooo disappointed when Bill swapped it to Black. To each their own.

That's the beauty of having multiple themes installed. When you're logged in, you can have set as default whichever one suits you best. :)

I have to admit, I had to change back to black, it just didn't feel right the other way! LOL :lol:

Alright, looks like a unanimous decision, the dark theme is now back as the default.

Change is inevitable, and I try to adapt to the flow. TBH, I'm not bothered with how clodtalk looks, as long as it stays here. :mrgreen: I just wish my work wouldn't block so many of the images. :lol:

It's funny, when I first came to CT, it was a text based forum, meaning there was no fancy graphics, emojis, or extra frills, white background, black text, almost like reading a book. When Bill revamped the place and started using actual forum software, he was the one who preferred the dark background and that became the norm. I didn't like the black/dark, but over time I adapted and now anything else just doesn't seem right. :mrgreen:
