  1. The Forum has been upgraded, and with that, I am waiting on the skins from the person who I rely on for the skin for this forum. If there are compatibility issues, like the font not showing up when you type, you can change the color to make it readable. But note that there are several skins on this forum to choose from and some colors may work with some, others it may not look so good. So as soon as the skins become available, I will update them. Worse case, you can look down the bottom center of the page and choose the default skin for now.
