[quote="JigsawAnalogy"]i was feeling in the halloween spirit, so i switched the board over to a halloween style for the week. but i can also accept that perhaps not everyone wants that. here's a refresher on how to change the style of the board: go to the user control panel (as i look at the screen right now, it's the skull below the pumpkins on the top left of the screen). Then you click on board preferences (third from the left along the top row in this style), and choose a board style. the usual style for the board is 3myl_parchemin.
to make up for the annoyance, i also tweaked the "minimal" style so that it doesn't show rank images. if you want to browse the board without seeing the pictures, choose that as your style, and then go into the user control panel, choose "edit display options" under board preferences, and set the buttons to "no" for whether you want particular images displayed.
if you are lazy like me, and happen to like the pictures most of the time, you can feel free to make a second account for yourself, use the minimal style in that account, and access it from your phone. i'm still looking for a way of having people able to log onto a mobile version of the site from their phones, but the regular version elsewhere. this should help until then, though.[/quote]
Thank you so much JA!
I love the more playful styles, but being able to switch to the simple black on white backgrounds with no user images means that I can read this forum at work (where I work in the open and people are always coming up behind me). They don't generally watch what I'm doing too closely, but eyes are always drawn toward moving images and I worried about reading while I was there unless I'd shut images off at my browser. However, that meant I couldn't reply because the the "reply" button was an image too.
I know even small tweaks can be a lot of work and totally appreciate your efforts on this. It reminds me of the Doctor Who forum I read where there's a special skin we can use at work so no one can tell we're having fun!
