Merry New Theme
Please join us in testing a new theme here for the Merry Forums. This brighter color scheme more closely matches My Merry Christmas and we think it will be easier to read.

I welcome your comments, feedback, ideas and suggestions.

What happened to the old theme? Nothing, we've still got it. We're putting it into the shop for the next couple of weeks to make it faster and to bring back the falling snow to it. Once we get those tweaks done, we'll make it so that every user can choose whichever theme they like best.

But for now, enjoy the new theme and post your comments!

The new board is looking great. It'll be a tough choice between this and the falling snow though.

Well, the falling snow is mood booster, for sure, but it comes at a price -- it takes a lot of processor power and it can make reading the boards a little slow.

I'm liking this new look the more I play with it.

I like this new look. It is much easier to read.

Cool! The new look is nice, Jeff! Thanks!

This is so nice; I feel like a fat boy in a donut shop! I think this works better for the summer season, too. The darker colors work nicely in the fall and winter. Jeff, does a program exist that will create snowfall over whatever program you are in (word processor, internet, etc.) and not just as a screensaver? If we could run that, we could have falling snow at our expense and not yours. :grin:

That technology does not exist, to my knowledge. Just have to scratch your head a lot, I guess.

This is buggy and slow in Firefox. Just thought you'd like to know.

Ed...yeah, I know...why do you use that piece of junk browser? The problem here is that our site logs show more than 90% usage of IE browsers.

That's not the best browser, I know, but that's what the world is using. The thing is we can't seem to design something yet that works perfectly for both...but we're working on it.

What are you seeing?

Well, the banner and the countdown clock at the top are all whacked out.

And don't call me Ed.
