    I **HAD** that option selected & it was indeed a blue theme, (which was similar to the gold, but easier to read) and I liked that just fine. But sometime after (12) noon EDT on 5/13, that "Default" (blue) style is no longer an option.

    ZEB>> That Default (blue) theme I liked ok, because the text in the reply to post box was black & the thread views & links were in black, with blue menu bars. I was going to use that theme, as I thought it might receive the new updates & features you mentioned in another post. I think the problem most are having is with the gold text (links, thread titles, & reply box text,) not so much the gold bars, buttons, & such.

Text size can be adjusted by anybody from within their own browser to suit their needs. As someone said again recently, railroaders do not take change well at all.
      I did what you said about changng the font size on my web browser. It changed the fonts on ALL other websites I go to but NOT Yardlimits.

      If stating your own opinion is considered bitching then yes I guess those of us that do not like or agree with the new color scheme are all bitching but you know what, we have the right to "bitch" so suck it up. Can't help it if some people are thin skinned. Zeb, I'm not talking about you. I have said before as many others have that we appreciate the work you do and have done so this will be my last post on this subject. I will stick to the NS forum and leave the bickering for the rest of you.

        Don't know what browser you are using, but firefox changes the font size very easily here. From the firefox menu, go to 'view' and select 'Zoom'. Make sure that 'Zoom Text Only' is checked, and then Zoom in and Zoom out to get the size you want. Very simple.

          I just paid another $175.00 to get the style done in blue to match the blue option of the new frontend. You will have the choice between this style and the blue one. The look of the two styles will be identical except for the color.

              RICO....RICO.......over here and bring the .....
              sigpic"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

                I'm still using Internet Explorer. Does that make me technologically obselete? Went to Page in the upper right hand corner. Clicked text size. Clicked on "larger" because "largest" was just way too big on the other sites. Like I said, it seemed to make all other sites bigger but not this one. Like I said, that's okay cause I changed the colors back to the original scheme. Thanks for trying though.

                  "Control" and "+" zoomed in on this site for me. I use Explorer also.

                      The new blue style is just about done. The designer must have been reading here as well. He has increased the font size for the optically challenged.

                      I think I did select a good designer for this project. He jumped right on the new blue style and churned it out today. He understood what I was going through.

                            Okay here we go again, scroll down to bottom of page, see where it says yardlimits with that little arrow thing, click it so it'll scroll, hit yardlimits 2 for the blue.

                              Ghost, you will probably see all the styles while the rest will have the option between YardLimits and YardLimits 2. This is because you have admin rights.

                              The new blue style is loaded as YardLimits 2. It has larger fonts for those that have trouble reading the default font size.

                                I will be loading the new frontend tonight. Bookmark YardLimits.com - An Online Rail Labor Community to get to the forum while this process is going on. The Yardlimits.com link will not be working correctly while I load everything.
