    Thank you Chris, but all this black has me worried about safety here. With creeps like Ugh and flamboyant homosexuals running wild, posting in the dark is pretty scary :(

    playing around in here, never mind me

    pasting the current referring url as a refresher still works best. can't find a better method really.

    Why are websites following this bright trend anyway? Dark colors are better for the eyes and don't burn your retina. My eyes orgasamed as soon as they started looking at the older, darker, design.

    Wow. Definitely felt way more at ease as soon as I saw the darker colors.

    Having trouble posting in dark, tho.

    My avatar switched too ^_^

    There's a Chrome add-on that did this... I used it for ages until Chrome updated and rendered it useless :'(

    Ha. Awesome! Good job, Chris.

    90% of the time I browse GR, however, it is from my phone. So I don't mind the white. Eye strain is probably inevitable either way.

    My God, i forgot how good looking the black+red was.

    Who here can write scripts for Greasemonkey while in the meantime we use Chris' method.

    You can't log in through the wayback machine. You also can't view the edits made unless you have a current referring url.
    We could use Firebug on the wayback.machine to save all the old layout settings, so that part should be easy. But how to make an actual greasemonkey script from the data?..

    Code:
    // ==UserScript==
    // @name            old_gr
    // @namespace       http://www.userscripts.org
    // @description     old gamerevolution colors
    // @include         http://wwww.gamerevolution.com/forum*
    // @exclude         
    // ==/UserScript==

    - Scripts are named somename.user.js, and Greasemonkey offers to install any such script when a URL ending in that suffix is requested.

    a. so edit in notepad
    b. save as something.user.js
    c. drag to url bar, install as greasemonkey script

    but none of that matters because this script doesn't work. we'll keep working on it.

    something to remember:

    (function()
    {


       ...script...

    })();



    wrap your script with them.
    and the greasemonkey folder is in Documents and settings > user > application data > your browser (chrome,mozilla)..... it's labeled gm_scripts

    This is the same CSS code from the old boards. nothing added. I took a guess and thought maybe it'd be as simple as replacing the new CSS with the old, but apparently not.

    A little while ago I was thinking it would be awesome to make a greasemonkey script to do exactly this.

    Then I realized I have no fucking idea how.

    So yeah, someone to do this. Maybe we could commission JoeBlow to do it for us!
