Yogi, dear... the new look of the fourum is probably good enugh (the one before login, the white one), but it burns my eyes and give me a headache... I can hardly look at it at all, and that make finding the login button kind of hard... could you please use something not so bright?

The now default index page for Brainformation uses subSilver styling. It's definitely "plain vanilla" and I can understand why most people don't want to use it. However, it is the only style that has all the updates for this board's current software. All the other styles may or may not have every feature available.

Why did I change the default? The reason for that is related to some modifications I'm trying to make to the registration process. Basically, I'm trying to make life difficult for the robots that create spam profiles. The number of them has increased lately, and are still manageable. But, it would be a lot easier to administer the site if we did not have to keep deleting bogus profiles.

Last weekend I tried to implement the anti-spam modifications, and accidentally disabled some of the site in the process. :oops: I think things are back to where they were now, but I am still anxious to do the modifications. Thus the default index page must be subSilver.

I really am sorry that your eyes are hurting Silke Image Unfortunately the old blue default page cannot handle the improvements I need to make. Once I get the mods installed, I'll try to soften the look for you, but until then, I recommend that you make a bookmark after you log in (be sure to check the "remember me" box first) and use that bookmark to get to your favorite style without having to see the plain vanilla one first.

Silke: you can choose to customize what BF looks like after login. mine is a nice dark blue. if you choose to stay logged in you won't have the pesky problem of the blindingly white screen for log in.
