That's a much better improvement though for some reason it still is not right. I know playing with the skins in vB
can be rough to get all the workings just right. It just seems you're not quite there. I mean I cannot barely see the time and date of posts within the showthread.php page because it's grey on a dark blue background, usernames are grey on grey, 'Return to Top' link is white, etc. Please don't take this as me nit-picking, just trying to offer some opinion as I'm sure there are others like myself who use 1280x1024 and up resolution and it's hard to see things that are too subtle.
Thanks for the color change, time to go lurking.
