is the new CM look an April fools thing? if so, can we undo it now?
if not, can we do something different anyways because this hurts my eyes.

a worried member,

Mysterious Figure < it took me too long to realize the emoticons

But yes, I agree with Saynok.

THE BACKLASH, IT BURNS

Jk, yes guys, I'm changing it back now. :P It was sort of meant to sear the eyes anyway.

I'm glad someone understood it though. You can return to this look in the future by going here.

Sorry for any consternation it caused, I was only going to leave it up for two weeks if no one said anything on the matter. Some of the features you might've noticed, such as cyan text selection, are still here though - there was a problem switching out the two sets of CSS and it looks like I'm going to have to redo my previous structure alterations from scratch.

My eyes applaud the return to the original theme. I'm pretty sure I couldn't edit anything useful even if I was an admin, but if there's anything I can do to help you restore your previous changes...let me know.

I like the cyan text selection, actually. Not because of the cyan itself (which is still a bit, um, bright), but because it's different from the default highlight colour. Just something to consider. :P

Thanks for the offer, but I don't suppose you know how to restore data that was (I think) stored on Forumotion's servers. :P I don't even remember what I'd done, either, so I can't reconstruct it from memory or anything.

An alternate highlighting color should be easy to keep, though...

Isn't Display>Themes management>Restore the skin working? I was able to easily restore THT's theme to its usual, non-Comic-Sans-and-non-Papyrus look using it. It appears to have backed up versions of the theme from January, February, and March; as well as from every other day this month.

I knew I should've looked further earlier today! The preview in that area is defective, but the restore seems to have reinstated most of my previous work. Thank you. :D

I'll have to recheck things but the site seems generally normal again...

4/6/14: For the record, I actually like the white backgrounds better than the default look, and I plan on using it even after the default is restored. Happy 

Is this an inversion of the default colors, Wally? Everything changed to its complementary color?

Well the header's changed, too. I really don't like the new appearance, and hope it's just an April fools thing.

Oh well, can't please everyone...

For Spectral, this isn't an inversion, since the original background wasn't black (and now it's pure white). It's meant to be opposite in a general way, but it really isn't color-wise. :P Good luck on using it if the default is restored, though - it tends to glitch or switch out when used as a secondary theme.

For wierdox, yes, it's a temporary thing. My internet connection is just too terrible to change anything with the site now - I could barely load this page to post this message. But I expect I'll be able to change things soon.

Theme 2 is, in fact, the original, so yeah. I essentially switched 2 and 0 for this April Fool's Season. :P All will go back to normal in a day or two, meaning the default will be the Original Flavor Theme and alt-theme 2 will go back to being the theme that the site is currently using. I'm still very proud of the Artakha Theme, moderately pleased with the Dawn Theme (current), and just a tiny bit disappointed with the Chancellor Theme.

The really sad thing is that now that I've completed the Dawn Theme, the number of themes for the site is maxed out unless I destroy one of the existing four.
