    Default Forum Style: Default or Basic?

    I took this poll a while back. Now that the two styles have been available for a while I'd like to ask again which one you like better. Though color can be important, it's easily changable. Layout, usabililty and complexity vs. simplicity is harder to manage so if you can base your opinion more on that instead of just color it would be nice....but if the color really impacts you, feel free to use that too.

    You can switch styles down in the footer near the left side.

    Which style do you find more usable?

    Basic for me. I find it more clearly defined between posts.

    Basic for me as I have argued often.

    But what would solve the whole question (as I have argued even more often) is putting ones choice in a cooky so that when you return to the forum, the prefered one is there again. Now I have to login again and again even when I do not want to post something, but just for getting my preferences: Basic style and timezone.

    I prefer Basic. For me, the text appears to render better/clearer . The framing of posts is clearer. The page is centred and avoids the large white space on the left side. I would prefer the frame border lines to be a bit lighter along with lighter colour - overall it all looks too heavy (not the text), but it's not a big issue.

    Default is better for me. Basic is too edgy and has too much contrast.

    Thanks for quoting half a page of text just to reply with one line and at the same blowing up the character encoding. Great work NNTP users indeed.
