Glad you like it! And, remember, if you ever want change the theme, you can select a new one in your preferences. The default theme for the board -- the one that new people will see -- is the "Appliance" theme. For existing users, I think their theme setting defaulted to the "Ultra" theme (the blue one that I posted) but they can change it to whatever they want.

It is soft Blue!!....not puke Green!!  Nothing else matters!! LOL  :)

 

Before I login I get the green theme.

After login it changes to blue. I don't mind the green, but blue has alway's been my favorit color. :)

Your data base must be really large by now. It must have been a little tricky getting it moved over.

btw: when I hit the spell check "ABC" icon to spell check my post I got this at the top of the page.

 The green is hard on my eyes.....:shock::shock:  The color changes when I log on??  The blue is like wow man, just want to relax and let my troubles go up in smoke...... The wording in the green scheme was difficult to read the words I.E.  POSTED: Jan 12...... Just figured out how to get the emoticons, my first post........

I cannot edit my own messages?????? I was going to ask, at the bottom of my POST it is just PREVIEW and PREVIEW POST  not PREVIEW and POST REPLY..... Is this only on my end or bugs in the system??  I posted by clicking preview post.....  I just  rechecked at the start of my post it has the normal words  PREVIEW and POST REPLY.......BUT  when I preview  the wording changes to PREVIEW and PREVIEW POST,  Is this correct????

Take a look in a normal thread in this forum, this is in Announcements for the Samruai, most of our options are not there in this heading only, see if this is so for you, it is for me to some extent, I have more buttons but you will not because of our status differences...;)

No, you should be able to edit your own messages in the repair forums, as Pegi said. Not sure about the settings in this one, I'll check it out.

The green is hard on my eyes..... The color changes when I log on??

That's because the Samurai is all about choice and empowering people to take control of their Informational Modalities®. Most forums lock you into a particular look to control the way you interact with the forum. I think that's a control freak, nanny-state mentality that is at the heart and soul of what's wrong with the world today-- everyone's trying to control everyone else. Well, I'm sorry, dammit, but that's just a shitty way to run a world! At the Samurai School of Appliantology, well, hold the pickles, hold the lettuce, special orders don't upset us 'cuz you git it yooooooouuur way!! :dazzler:

If I click on a user's name, profile, it doesn't mention their level (usergroup)

but here's a list

is this correct, any missing ?

Green = Grasshopper & Apprentice

Purple = Apprentice

Light Green = (Custom)

Orange= Scholar

Red = Master

Blue = Sublime, Fellow, & Grand Master

Subject to change without notice. :groucho:

That's it! How'd you generate that list?

Also, I'm looking for suggestions for userngroup colors. Don't be bashful!

(every other message has a light or lighter background - in every preference selected) = OK

try the Sea preference.. kind of a greenish-blue,

but has nice "sea shells" forum.gif for the posts indicator that "rotate" forum_new.gif if there's a new message in the thread.

The "flame" indicator topic_popular.gif (hot topic) for "popular posts" is nice ..

I can understand the "paper clip" icon_clip.gif , but what's the "red dot" ?

I'm still not sure what the paper clip means. And why am I in Red?

I think the paperclip means there are attachments I'm the topic.

As for the red, I'm still playing around with colors for the various user groups. Way open to suggestions on this! Currently, all the Academy Fellows are in red.
