We are phasing out the Classic skin. As a concession to Classic lovers, we are going to a similar color scheme. As a concession to blue & white lovers we are keeping that format and type font. These changes will apply to everyone, in the interest of economy and not having a "second class skin."

 

I wish we could make everyone happy all of the time and we didn't have to stress over these matters. But we can't.

Damn I miss my CLASSIC skin......

I was able to go into my user profile, edit account details and select "Epicski purple" and it did give a more muted color mix.

I agree--the new (?) "EpicSki Purple" skin is far easier to look at than the default skin, for my taste (not sure why they call it "purple," really). But I don't get it--weren't we supposed to have only one now? 

 

Purple? Really? If they think there's anything purple on the page I'm looking it, they are color blind--which would possibly explain why we've had issues with the color scheme since the beginning!

 

Best regards,

Bob

I went in to "try" the purple option only to discover that it was ALREADY selected......

 

Now I have no hope at all.......hissyfit.gif

Is this a play on:  You can make all of the people happy some of the time,  some of the people happy all of the time, but NOT all of the people all of the timebiggrin.gif.

 

Well, I'm going with "purple", although I see more "violet" than purple.  I must be either color blind or mechanical challenged and messed up my monitor's color settings.  Anyway, the "violet" setting is easier on these old eyes and that is what I'm going with.

ps:  violet palette from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Violet_(color))  although we have been warned not to take information on Wikipedia too seriouslybiggrin.gif.

Well, I guess I'd accept the lower two squares in the right column and the middle square on the left of the "violet" pallette--they resemble a couple of the colors on our color scheme (although I'm still inclined to put those three patches more in the "blue" category). But there's nothing in the "purple" pallette that comes close to the colors on my screen.

 

Oh well...surely there are more important issues!

 

Best regards,

Bob

this has got to be a wind up - violet is not in any guy's color chart - heck, even purple is a stretch....   smile.gif

How about periwinkle?

FWIW, I like the current Default skin better than either the "classic" (purple) or the head-fi example, but there's no option to vote for that.  Why not?  It seems I'm not alone in that opinion...

 

Thumbs down on the larger avatars - they have 100x100 avatars over at the head-fi site and it just eats up a lot of screen real estate.  I don't think larger avatars are an improvement.

 

I'd say just fix the column width problem and leave the rest as-is.

Thanks for posting this year, SMJ.  Turned it on so I don't have to swivel my neck back and forth so much.

The default is the current blue & white.

Ok.  I guess I misread the question.  I've voted for the current blue and white.

 

Kudos on fixing the width - I've removed my custom css directives and checked the "contain to constant width" and it seems to be working*.  Thanks.

 

 

 

* I've seen a couple anomalies - e.g. the first post in this thread:

http://www.epicski.com/forum/thread/103575/2012-gathering-in-lake-tahoe-2-26-3-2-12 doesn't wrap.
