My Friends,

I need your help. I'm trying to decide which theme (style or "look") that new people to the forum should see. The choice is between the Appliance theme and the Ultra theme, both shown below. Although this forum has four other themes built into it, I've only chosen these two as the candidates for the default look of the forum. Of course, members will always be able to select any of the five themes available in this forum at their personal preference. All I'm talking about here is how the forum will look to newbies who haven't joined the Samurai School yet and so don't have a choice of how the forum appears on their monitor.

Have a say in the future of the Samurai School and vote in this poll (poll closes in 30 days). Domo!

Why is the left column so wide (on the main page) when I select Aiblue or Sea ?

Dunno, mi amigo. I think that was just a theme designer's discretionary call. However, my samurai senses tell me that you are very close to snatching the pebble from my hand and agreeing with me that the Appliance theme is the best. :samurai:

It was change or die, applianceman. The forum software I was using was obsolete and no longer supported. As a result, it wasn't running efficiently on the latest versions of php and mysql and it was killing the server. So the site was bogging down and crashing frequently. We're much, MUCH better off now. 8)
