    I just noticed today that when you post a new thread or reply, the page has a gray background now.

    Was this changed on purpose?

    Just to give my opinion, I don't like it that much.

    As I recall, it was always grey but it is now considerably darker. I like it this way. Change to this place is s l o w.

    I noticed it too. Personally I don't like it, but I'm not complaining though, it's trivial (IMO).

    Now... where's the redesign? It has been incoming for at least 4 years now...

    I noticed it on 2 different machines. I thought maybe it was some cached CSS issue, but doesn't seem so, so far. I don't care for it either.

    CSS-wise, looks to be the .tborder selector that causes this color. It's declared in the page rather than from a CSS file.

    It'd look better if the "Reply to Thread" div was the same color :-\

    I noticed it earlier today, too. Frankly, I think it looks awful.

    I think so too. It clashes to much, it was fine the way it was before.

    I noticed it too. Not a fan, makes the site look older, but I don't mind so much. I would love a complete overhaul of the site though.

    I noticed it too, but thought I was imagining things. :eek: It looks fine to me. The less white the better. Too bad we can’t change the whole layout to suit our individual tastes.

    Oh, everyone else is seeing that? I thought there was something wrong-er in my head.

    Until you've had a Guido refund, you haven't had a refund.

    I believe it has something to do with the contest, and is only temporary, but I could be wrong.

    I'm glad somebody asked about this because I had the feeling something was wrong but I just wasn't sure. Colors aren't my strong suit. :eek:

    I don't think it was changed on purpose. I'll ask around.

    Ten Million Post Contest. I seem to remember this happening before, but maybe I'm just imagining things ;)
