    Thanks for such a well-informed and awesome post. Well, now there have been some very obvious changes for those who visit the site frequently, but perhaps we should wait for some comment. More changes and announcements are in the works! Take care.

    Looks like somebody has been very busy. The site is sporting a brand new theme and some additional tweaks and touches here and there and I have to say...... I'm liking it.
    Nice face lift. Thanks Mike for all the hard work and effort that must have gone into this. Haven't seen many other comments. Wonder if anyone else even noticed.

    I like the new look too. It's nice to quote the message you are replying to. It sometimes gets confusing in long running posts.

    I believe that in the new interface "Theme" the green Reply to Thread button on the left side serves as a Quick Reply and does not include a quote. Try it, I might be wrong but that seems to be the behavior in IE9

    You are right Trouble, I used the green button and it does work as a quick reply.

    I like what I see but have a question. What happened to the computer specs in the profiles? Just curious. I noticed they are not there anymore.

    The new skins look great, a couple questions though,

    1. Is the spelling correct for the one highlighted?

    2. I like the "RoyalFLUSH" skin, but which ever skin I choose and whenever I log in, it reverts to the "Aesthica" or "Aesthetica" however it supposed to be spelled. I believe the latter.
    Normally it would stay to the one you choose, I'm running FF5.0, haven't checked other browsers to see if it makes a difference. I don't use IE, not too fond of it.
    Any ideas or anyone else experience this?

    Thanks,

    Don

    I am using IE and it changes back for me also. I found that if you log in and then change, it will stay while logged in. Once you log out it reverts back to the default setting. (aesthica)

    Hi guys :)

    It changes because you have not set it to default in your personal settings. Click Forum Actions > General Settings (Forum Skin)

    Thanks Ciara,

    I need to get my head examined, it is so simple that a caveman could have done it.:)

    I'm very much taken with the Aesthetica Fixed skin. Well done Sir(s)! :)

    I suppose I ought to drop W7 2-3 now, or whatever it was called!

    Just a little sneak peak, if you head over to Windows8Forums.com, you can see some of the other themes that may be added here, in time. :)

    Hi Elmer

    On the left of the aperture bar there are two little arrows if you click them it hides the aperture bar for as long as your logged in :)

    and I just found out (in Edit Profile) >
