    Wab 2.0

    Hi Everyone,

    We've completed the bulk of the upgrade to vBulletin 4. More things need to be done along with a finalization of the design.

    I hope everyone likes it and comments are very much welcome!

    The colors...the colors...

    Any way to make the default letter size a bit bigger and darker?

    What's wrong with the colours?! Maybe I'll regret saying comments are welcome :-P.

    I'll have a play around with sizes and see what it looks like!

    Nah...nothing is wrong with the colors. They're just...different.

    The size and the color of the text could definitely use a boost. Personally, I think the font size is too small and the coloring too light, which strain my eyes. Or maybe I just need better glasses.

    Okay, my first reaction was an impulse to stab things. Then I realized that it just wasn't loading properly. I still want to stab things, but much more gently. I don't suppose there's a keep it the same option for stick in the mud reactionaries? Also, what gunnut said.
    I enjoy being wrong too much to change my mind.

    I'm with gunnut, the text would be easier on the eyes if it were a bit darker and maybe one or two sizes larger.

    And maybe a different default font? )

    Other than that, a bang up job, Martin!

    Nope - vB4 was a complete rewrite basically so old templates do not work at all.

    Figgers. Ah well, I think I hated the last version at first too, probably I'll get used to it.

    Fine by me.

    Maybe it helps to be a young kid with fairly decent eyesight...

    Do you happen to have experience with CSS?

    Never trust a web developer to trouble shoot a network. Likewise never let an IT guy touch CSS!

    It is fast and working fine, fonts and styling are great. The only reaction I am having is the contrast. The site feels pale with insufficient contrast. Maybe just need to get used to it.
