    No metro visualization to the site


    I know it'd be kind of difficult to do, but you'd think there would be somewhat of a metro look to this website. :| Considering the vista and 7 forums portray to themselves... Just saying

    Hello ErraticFox,

    If you like, you could select one of the "Metro" skins to use from the bottom of the site's pages.

    Hope this helps,

    No worries. I'm glad you like John's (z3r010) skin.

    Can we get the 'Metro' skin, just with a different color (the blue that's already used, perhaps) as the wrapper around the content strip in the middle?

    My eye's can't adust to that much white.

    Hello lilsting,

    If you like, there's a Metro Blue and Metro Gray skin available.

    I saw those, but unfortunatly didn't like how they completely changed the layout of the forum.

    My issue is the white content area -on- white background for the current metro skin means my brain automatically tries to fill-in the background color or something, so it is very hard to focus-on.
