I don't mind it but may not be around as much due to it being so bright. I liked it better before. :disappointed: I get headaches with the contrast being so much.

Sorry to hear that. It's not actually brighter than what we used to have. The difference is only in the header/navigation bar itself. The rest of the site retains the same color scheme.

Also, depending on your browser, you could probably adjust not just brightness but also the color scheme of any site you're using. I'm sure Chrome has extensions that do just that.

And finally, I think I may have found a Bug. The "Featured Forum Discussions" contains a column for "Last Message" for each thread.
Confirmed and the designer should be fixing this asap.

Just one thing - the 'connect with us' button doesn't have Instagram listed.
Good catch! We'll add that :thumbsup:

Just tried to login using the "LOGIN" link under "Interact with our community", and it doesn't do anything. Neither does "REGISTER". So used the regular "LOG IN" above on the white line.
Confirmed and fixed! Thank you!

I have issues with brightness too. When we moved to this platform, HellaSteph HellaSteph suggested I get a free download called Flux. It lets you bring down the brightness of the white, and blocks a lot of the blue light too. It was a game changer for me, so it might be worth a try :)

I have the blue light blocker turned on on my phone too, and there's also the option to turn on night mode too, which turns the background black instead of white. You loose some of the prettiness of the site if you do that, but it's much easier on the eyes ;)

A couple of things which came up here and in private messages -
1. Yes, non-logged in members see a slightly different view. They see a header with a sleeping kitten at the top -

If you're seeing this, it means you're not logged in. There was an issue with the login and register buttons there but I just fixed that so you can login using that.

2. The third button there says "What's New" and takes you to a list of threads ordered by "last posted". Once you're logged in, you can still reach that page by hovering over the "Forums" tab in the navigation bar. This opens the forums drop down menu where you can find this -

Of course, there's always the main page with the "latest posts" table (which is essentially the same table).

Along with brightness adjustment apps, I now have a pair of blue light blocking reading glasses on my desk. Sad to say that I am not in my mid-30s yet and I have reading glasses.

I miss the red thing from the top, some texts are also HUGE and it is quite bland, but I get used to it with time.
