    This really points out how people's eyes differ. I've made no secret of the fact that dark on light is harder to read for ME - as the "light" usually means "glaring". But others have the opposite experience.

    One problem I had with the purple, apart from that i had to really strain my eyes to read, was that when i switched to other websites, (which were lighter) my eyes got a shock from the difference and it was quite tiring. I do still love the purple colouring and since we apparently are so different, it's brilliant to have both light and dark alternatives.

    Hello!

    I am sorry to write this, but i have problems in accessing the initial post of each thread. It is not evident even when i log in (without logging in, one cannot read the first post), sometimes i can access the first post, but in most cases i cannot - like just now.

    Moreover, there are problems for logging in. I am not sure whether this is a problem of the forum in general or whether it is my own connection. I am just writing to let you know - as it is sure that this website transfer will need some time to make everything work properly.

    Thank you very very much!

    Try logging out completely, clear cookies then close browser. Then log in again, sometimes clearing cookies helps small problems. What browser are you using? I don't have any problems with Fire Fox or Google Chrome.

    On google chrome I have the same problem with accessing the initial post before logging in despite regularly clearing browsing data to include cookies. The initial post shows who posted and when, but nothing as to what was posted except a long expanse of nothing

    That would be lovely. I'm seeing squares now, so text is OK if a bit squished, but any YouTube embeds are going behind the ad, e.g. Amulyas post here http://bellydanceforums.net/middle-e...tml#post221929

    The dancer is behind an ad for reducing belly fat half the time.

    The ad also covers the fullscreen and view on YouTube buttons. Double clicking fullscreens it, but the quality is pants on the average clip blown up that big. Going to YT from there then upsets my popup blockers, by which time I have lost patience with the whole business.

    I've got used to purple though I did notice the links not standing out the other day. Off to give other colours a try!

    (ooh, green IS easy on the eye)

    Just to say - I was logged in earlier, came back later to find the 1st post text all squished to the side, then I realised I wasn't logged in any more, it's fine now I am logged in, but happened when I wasn't!

    Are you using fire fox? If you are try their ad killer, it may help https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...don/ad-killer/

    I don't get the ads in the posts. If you don't like it you can disable it in add ons or remove it. When I first installed it a bar was added to the bottom of the browser and annoyed me with messages to do with liking or not liking an ad, which has its merits as you can kill a lot more ads. But it works fine without having to use the bar. I still get some ads like the banner one at the very bottom of the forum but it is unobtrusive down there & no side bar ads. If you put your cursor on an ad a tiny red icon comes up & you can either kill the ad by clicking the X or pin the ad by clicking the pin on the left. If you use google chrome it doesn't work, & I'm not sure about MS explorer as I don't use that browser.

    I'll ask the IT manager (husband) about ad blocking again. We used to have it on the big PC but fairly sure it's not doing anything to the big ads on the last posts.

    OK I found a delightful new feature on the TPBDC thread (note extreme sarcasm) - those keyword things are appearing in posts as links, so e.g. if someone types something about pants a link appears just in case the very mention of the word makes you think "hey, you know that reminds me, I simply MUST go and find out what Amazon or some crappy comparison site has to say on the subject of pants... oh how convenient a link already!!!!"

    Do you ever get one of those days where the internet seriously pisses you off? I've just been watching old clips on Pathe, and I have seen an ad for some tablet about 20 times (and I still don't know/ care which one - see advertisers how effective that is? If I did remember which one, they'd be bottom of my shopping list by now). And no I don't want a burlesque hen night or to date Arab girls or that "mature" lady looking uncomfortable in her suburban bedroom only 6 miles from you (wow, really???!!!), and will the last shops I ordered from please quit stalking me because I just bought stuff so I know where you are if I need you and all you are doing is being annoying. Annoying customers is a Bad Thing.

    So

    YES PLEASE I WILL BE HAPPY TO PAY A SMALL FEE TO HAVE A FORUM EXPERIENCE THAT IS AN OASIS OF AD-FREE PEACE AND QUIET. Because it is getting really tiresome. Sorry for the shouting. [/rant]
