You've probably noticed that the skin on the forums has changed to have white text. Some have remarked that they prefer this for readability. However if you did prefer the black text it is still available. Go to your User CP, then to Edit Options, on the bottom of the page should be a Forum Skin option, you can then choose between White Text and Black Text.

It may be more readable, but, with all do respect, it looks horrible. :(
Maybe make the color scheme darker or the links and the other text a different color to blend in with the white more? Maybe I was just used to the site, but the white really doesn't seem to fit in.

I agree Alex. Forum default has been set back to Black. White is available if you wish to use it.

Alrighty, it's nice as long as it's not default. :p
Are we getting a new forum skin to go along with the site or keeping this one? I like this skin except the DoF banner doesn't blend into the rest of the header background in many browsers.

Please also note you can change your style in the bottom left of the page in the drop down box there.

The white text was hurting my eyes :p.

The white text does seem to be more readable but ya, it does hurt my eyes.

I don't think there was anything wrong with the black text. :(

Meh, at least it's not eye scorching *cough* Halo Wars Heaven *cough* :p

White text isn't more readable at all.

You should probably take off the "In Renovation" from the forum title now...

Made the snowflakes a shade whiter and the green a couple shades darker. :) (you may want to clear you cache)

Happy Holidays!

Awesome banner and loving the snowflakes guys! Great idea, I've never seen something like that before.

looks alot better black. The white text is to stressful on the eyes especially if your trawling the forum for a while or have been on the comp already. like the christmas theme that we had could possibly do a winter/autumn/summer/spring theme to cover both a range of colours?
