After looking at the white for so long, the classic blue is almost a little jarring.

The blue does look a little different than I remember, but I'm not complaining.

XenForo was a style that looked blue enough and actually fit quite nicely to the point where I never bothered to edit it. This is more classic style.

One thing I noticed is that the topic icons on the left are clearly designed for a white background and their edges are rough as a result. Maybe replace with feathered PNG files with an alpha channel?

The Wayback for then is the .net. Same color from 2000 until whenever XenForo came. That also is the time when we got the other colors. Before that, it was a very plain and simple design. I may have even been using AOLPress then. If not, I was long before that.

I wasn't going to say anything until after but I was REALLY hoping that this wasn't an April Fool's Day joke because if it were, I would have found it really, really, really, cruel.

Now can we do something about that unfashionable "phpbb" logo??
