    Terry,

    Can you please change the font and website back to the way it used to be. It's taking me longer to navigate the site. I was so used to the old font. Thank you.

    Gabe

    I will be trying to add some font options in the next few days.

    I've seen the site on a couple of computers.
    What size screens are you using? the pixel count.
    Is it the color?

    I miss the old forum. Although there appears to be lots of fancy new features.

    Ian,
    I will make a better Copper sweating video.
    That one was too funny.

    But yes, your point was, now the site lets you embed video.
    Which is going to be so kick ass!

    I fourth it.

    Any way of going back to the old format?

    Font and color, or lack thereof, are making it hard to enjoy for me.

    My pet peeve so far is that when I'm done reading a thread, I click on the name of the thread to go back to read another thread in the forum and instead of it taking me back to the forum, a box drops down and then I have to reach for the mouse, scroll down to the forum name and then click on the forum name... the old version took us back to the forum without the drop down box and extra clicks and use of the mouse.

    I could do with smaller envelops along the left edge of each post too. And not being logged in automatically but, I've learned that I am logged in although it doesn't show that until I read a thread and go to read another. And then there is the no Advanced post option not showing up until you click Post Rely or some such.

    Font size & colors can be adjusted on your local PC
    I also "zoom" to 125% for Internet windows
    I use 1280x1024 resolution on a 22" monitor
    Every person's view will be different depending upon your PC settings, monitor & resolution setting
    Once you upgrade to a newer version of software you don't go back
    Upgrades are required with almost every software as they stop supporting older versions

    Like a wooden leg, you can get used to anything.... Seems a bit light and washed out.
