Like the title of this topic says, there is clearly a problem with the new skin on the site. To be completely accurate, there are a lot of problems with the new skin. It has obviously not been tested before it was added. :rolleyes: Or else the person who added it did something wrong. This kind of sloppiness honestly makes me sigh in frustration.

Let me tell you what is wrong with the skin.


Firstly, a lot of things are in the wrong places and very difficult to find. Some things seem to be on the exact opposite place of where they should be. Let me tell you that it is very difficult to navigate on the site now. I feel like I would need a mirror to navigate the site now, which of course wouldn’t work at all either, because the words and letters would be turned around. For example the titles of the forums are below the forums and not above them. The important links are in a completely mindless place as well. It took me a while to find the log in and log out button on the forums now. The important things are on the bottom of the page instead of on top of the page. This makes no sense whatsoever. The information about a forum is also above the name of the forum instead of below it, which also doesn’t make any sense. I can only assume that this is a mistake of some kind and that the skin wasn’t tested before it was added to the site. In fact there are too many problems to be listed in this post, and so many that I can’t even remember everything right at this very moment.
Please, correct this immediately. Also please make the old skin available to use as well.


Sincerely,

Well the only thing I can say is MAN UP and show your loyalty to the Dark Lord. These problems are sent to test our loyalty, you will do well to appreciate the Dark Lord's effort into clensing HPFF improving it for us all.

I don't see a problem to be honest. The Dark Lord has changed things around to suit everyone so much better now.

I don't care for the new skin either. One of my main problems is that I do not like white letters on a black background. It gives me a headache. So, if it stays like this, I will not be on the forums very often. And I am sure that I am not the only person that feels this way. I will still use hpff because no matter what the colors may be, I can copy and paste on word (which I do anyway) and change the color. But I can't do that with the forums. I'm sorry, but if something physically hurts me, I'm not going to use it.

EDIT: I just found the way to change the theme. But I don't like the changed theme either. It could just be my computer, but there are no options other than "reply" at the bottom of the page. There are no options like "delete", "edit", or "report". It won't really let me do much of anything. And it also does not show recent posts, status updates, or blog updates. It only shows me a list of areas I can go to. The other theme, in my opinion, is even worse.

I actually kind of like it, I'm a huge fan of the black background. I'm not too fond of everything being in different places but that's probably because I just came back on a couple minutes ago so I'm not used to it yet. Either way, this is a pretty wicked skin.

That's what I am saying. Whatever the reason is for this change, it is just too confusing and too dark.

Will bowing down to the Dark Lord make the skin easier to read?
Either way I'm doing a Malfoy, lovin' Dark Lord 'til Harry's winning again.
