You mighta noticed I changed the forum's config to "
Icon + Text
".

Most admins feel this looks best.

Default is Icons-only. So the 'text' part is new. Have never tried that option before.

You like?

The icons/graphics use more bandwidth than text, so the board shouldn't be any slower.

Just to be *contrary*--the new look is okay, but I liked the original better  Smiley --just the buttons with the text--cleaner look (my opinion)--the board's default sizes are so small on my system--I can hardly tell what the icon picture depicts--and changing browser *View* settings for *Text Size* has no effect--apparently the CSS forum style sheets has priority over the browser settings!!

1280 x 960 on a spare 17" CRT for the moment--my 19" CRT died a 6-8 weeks ago--looking into a LCD monitor for a replacement.

I noticed that on a friend's LCD monitor with a similar resolution, that the default forum size appears much larger than on my system--I don't quite understand the reason for the difference!

I know--did not want to mess with *your* choice  Wink !

I tried the 'medium' setting for a while, but it looks too first-grade-like on my screen .. went back to normal black_gray3d.

it's nice to try diff settings. sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.

I prefer the 'radio buttons' as well.  I might mention that both the 'turnaround' when editing and the general forum response time have markedly improved of late here on the Gulf Coast.

I've been out for awhile, and I'll say I was amazed at the newer look.  Change is good, thanks for the hard work.
 

I just scoured the whole freakin net and Google brought me back here!
