Okay, one issue... I found that you have to highlight the titles of songs in the gallery... err... "MEDIA" section.

Gotta get used to this new theme, but everything looks alright here.  Well done. :3

In an aside to the audience :I think WillyP is half the reason this community is still together:

On with the play:
Hamlet: To be... or not to be.  That is the question.

Rozencrantz: Actually, that's wrong.  The real question is: When do we get to use Alieo's awesome robot icons?

PD light theme is a little nicer. took a little while to find it. I must have been the first to select it to. I saw something like "116 are using PD dark" and "0 are using PD light".
(few minutes later)


lol, I am still the only one. 118 using dark, 1 using light.

Okay, what is "view toggle view"?
I understand the "hide enclosed from suspicious visitors" button needs fixing, but what does it do? hide stuff from guest? sort of like spoiler, but not click-able to the average guest? or of a certain post count?

Not sure what the toggle does.

The hide I think hides content from guests, and visitors who are on certain lists of known spammers, or maybe it is triggered by certain behaviors. If you need to publish an e-mail addy that is what it is for. Though, I would not rely on it being safe. Remind me when I have some time I'll look into it. Same with the robot icons, please remind me in a few days if I forget.

Where is the style selection now? I don't like this one too much. Very bad signal to noise ratio.

the different theme?

Up where you see home, forum, help, etc, go to "Profile - Account Setting".

Right below that menu, go to "modify account - look and layout" You should see the option to change the theme.


I'm still the only one using this. weird.

Vanguard,

I browsed through all the account settings for a quarter of an hour (before first posting here) - to no avail. I don't have an option to chose another forum theme there.

You should be able to hover over "Profile" and click on "Account Settings"

Then, there's another menu below those, one saying "modify profile". Hover over "Modify profile" and then click on "look and layout"

It should show you a list of things you can change. on top of the settings shows "change theme". go way to right of the screen and click on "change"

You mean Signal + noise to noise ratio, don't you :P.
(I can't resist, I'm taking a Perception course).

In all seriousness, I looked at all the other themes and they were worse (IMO).
There's really only the default and one that's the same on a white background (for me the white adds even more noise than the black).
And I agree I liked the old theme better.  But this does look more like classic PlanetDescent.

all the other themes? aren't there only two? I like light because it's more clean looking. I think a lot agree, the classic PD.com looked great.
