    Hi All

    For a limited time I'll be trying out some new styles I've configured - the first one is called ZoneSilver. If youwish to see what theMouthPiece.com looks like with this style, please do the following;

    • 1 - go to your 'Profile' page
      2 - navigate to the 'Preferences' section
      3 - On 'Board Style' select 'ZoneSilver'
      4 - Press 'Submit' and return to the main page


    You should now see theMouthPiece.com in a new style.

    Please Note: I have not made graphical changes to this style as yet, I want to gauge peoples reactions first. If it's popular, then I'll try some more, make the necessary graphic changes and Modifications and make them available as a user choice...

    This style will only be available for 24 hrs... here today, gone tomorrow !!! :)

    Not just weird, blimming scary -- what've you done, I think that that new style has changed the balance, kill it, exterminate it ---- I didn't like it soo much I've gone back to the original tMP style, sorry :p very funky though

    I prefer the old one. This new one looks ok (great in fact) when just looking at the main page or the main page of each forum, but when I go and look at the messages, all the different colours from the avatars and smilies don't help at all.

    I hope that makes sense! So it's a no from me I'm afraid!

    Hi All

    Just to reiterate... I have no intention of changing the current format/layout of tMP, moreover offering an alternative style to those who might prefer a change... the current default style will remain the default style, and of any new styles that people like - these will be available on a personal choice basis. I will provide options as to which style you prefer ... it's very much a user choice, not an Admin mandate ... :lol:

    No panic...!

    I think it's kinda funky! Why don't you give it a try for a week or so to give people to get more used to it?

    Sorry if that's not what everyone wants :? Just an idea :hammer

    Hi manx_yessir - as I mention above, it's completley a user choice as to which style is displayed on their machines. The usual style will ALWAYS be available as the default. It will be up to individuals to change the style should they wish to.

    My own personal thought is that.. em.. I don't like it.

    Seems to distract attention from the literary meanderings of our wonderful members, and the buttons don't seem to give the same information as easily.

    Choice is good. That style is bad.. ;)

    aarrrrrrgggghhhhhhh!!!!!! music man whatever we have done to you please forgive us! Nice idea, but its a bit harsh, grey and unfriendly!

    For someone browsing the internet who just happens to stumble accross the site i think the current format would definately make me want to look some more and the zonesilver one would make me look elsewhere!

    :D
