Default New Theme! (& instructions how to change themes)

As I'm sure you've just noticed a new theme has just been added and set as the default theme for everyone. As you can hopefully tell it's styled to match the official website and roughly match the Wasting Light styling there. Well it's only 16 months after the album was released but better late than never, huh?

I'm aware it's very different to what we've been used to over the last 5 years or so and therefore if you decide you don't like it and want to change back, you can.

How to change your theme

Simply scroll down to the bottom of the forum, on the bottom bar you should see a selector, like this - Changing theme

Change it to ESPG to go back to the old theme (which will be fixed with the proper background shortly) or select Wasting Light for the new theme. I hope you like the new theme I've created and any feedback, good or bad, is most welcome. I won't be offended if you hate it.

It is easier on the eyes with the darker background... I swear I clicked to the next page in the Reading thread, and *blink* it was different.

Skins for each album might be coming. Maybe. Possibly. Perhaps.

Thank you for letting us keep the old one! It really gave me a headache! I'm glad so many like it though.

Awesomeness

Got used to the other one for so long. I like the new toolbar at the top of the page too.

This is awesome, white on black is much, much better for reading purposes.

Only minor complaint, is it possible to change the icons, because they seem very aliased due to being made for a white theme.

All the posting icons you mean? Yes I wanted to change those as I did all the other buttons but there are so many of them and I couldn't get them designed in a way I liked. If I come up with something better for them all I'll replace them.

In any case, the new theme is awesome and fits the rest of the website perfectly.

Thanks for the comments folks, I've already made some adjustments to the font colour based on feedback in other threads.

The good thing about doing themes is that they can be done in the background and then as soon as they're ready made the default theme so no need to close the forum. I could have closed it but I went for the "HOLY CRAP WHAT HAPPENED" approach.
