    GameOgre.com's forum has a few different forum skins, the default you are seeing now and a few other types/colors. You can choose between the skins by going to the bottom of the forum and looking on the left. To view a different skin, click that and it'll bring up a box to change themes.

    The black skin is easier on my eyes.

    Yeah, it is. The white is so bright after being used to the black. XD

    I can't say how many times people have come to chat looking for a way to switch themes. This should clear up some of the confusion. :)

    I am pretty much used to default all these years, but we do need to make the choice more obvious for others:).

    Why isn't the black skin default?

    It's my favorite of the two. I like some things better on the old skin (no broken images), as it displays arcade game wins and tournament win count for the arcade, but I much prefer the look of the dark skin (esp the chatbox), enough so that any added functionality is overruled.

    I agree. Although the newer skin isn't perfect, it still is much more visually appealing. Plus people don't yell at me for using bold aqua text in chat. :p

    I don't know if anything can be done about this, but the blue menu bar still extends too far to the right (in Firefox) when my browser isn't full-screen. It's more of an annoyance, though. Also, arcade high scores/tournament wins aren't shown.
