If Pal shows people in a year what the site used to look like they'd be shocked.


Sorry for the change again. In addition to the protests, prosilver is much lighter and loads faster so perhaps more suitable as a default style.

Charon can still be selected in User Control Panel.

Pal - what about the weird characters I see in posts pre-upgrade? Like symbols and Greek letters, I think mostly from quoted text.

I mentioned this in this thread earlier.

Some of the text did not import correctly from the upgrade, especially those in other character encoding.

How is the font size of the prosilver? Is it acceptable? Easy to view?

While I appreciate the "cuteness" of prosilver (small font, cute and colourful icons, compact), I find it harder to navigate compared to Charon - both on PC and phone. But that's my personal take. I've switched mine back to Charon after spending a day with Prosilver.

Prosilver seems to be good on windows phone using regular IE browser. on the desktop however it seems to be spaced a bit too close for comfort, but nevertheless I'm sticking to Prosilver.
Charon was a pain on windows phone and I had to use tapatalk for it but I'll probably end up doing it later at some point.
Thanks for adding prosilver as an option :mrgreen:

I have renamed prosilver to "Default Style" and Charon to "Mobile Style" and also install a drop down box on every page for quick style select.

I hope everyone will be happy after this.

Some of the text did not import correctly from the upgrade, especially those in other character encoding.

In my case technically not "other character encoding", but quoted text.

Can you send me a link to the posts that contain weird characters?
