    Is it possible to change the board Theme?

    The red text color on the white background is killing me.

    Is there any way to change that?

    Thanks.

    >> Is there any way to change that?

    Sure.

    A) Code your own browser. (Difficult)
    B) Beg the moderators to change it, just for you. (Unlikely)
    C) Read your browser's documentation to see if that option is available. (Quite possible)

    In Internet Explorer, you can go to Tools->Internet Options->General->Accessibility.
    Code:
    bool fun(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow(std::exp(1), std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
        * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1)*(1 << (value + 2))))
        .real() > 0;
    }

    seriously though, while the color doesn't bother me I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have chosen that shade of red myself.

    Of course, another possibility is to build a small "firewall" type application and let it modify the content of teh HTML to change the background/foreground colours... Again, it's not trivial, but can be done.

    Since this is about the board, excuse the derail btw, but at what point do profiles become viewable? Or are they disabled entirely? I can't seem to find it in the FAQs.

    It's a matter of posts. Don't have exact numbers, but I assure you that profiles are available.

    I almost have enough to view profiles. I can't wait until then. I hear Salem has a pretty awesome profile.

    Howdy, sean. I know how that goes, I have come and gone many times over the years. Congrats on being a mod. I am almost positive that when I used to post a few years back (well like 5 years back) you were fairly active.
