    The theme / style of the forum can easily be changed by selecting "Style" at the bottom right of the page (while on a computer; probably not on a cell phone). So this question is not "What style do you like best?" but "What style do you think appeals to the most people to keep them hooked on their first visit?" And this post is also a test of the "poll" feature - let us know what you think!


    Notes:

    (1) Several of the styles, including Lotus, Norvip, Black Swan, Modern Flat, and each of the Pixel choices, keep the navigation bar and status icons in a bar at the top of the page even as you scroll downward - that's a handy feature that the default Mavira doesn't have.

    (2) Actually my current favorite may be "Modern Flat" which isn't to light, isn't too dark, but is somewhere in the between.

  • I selected Mavira in the poll just to test if the polling result looked. I tend to think that "material" design probably appeals to most people, but I could be wrong. Let us know your thoughts and help us test the polling option.

  • Yes I am flipping between calypso and Mavira myself, but I am also getting use to Black Swan and find myself preferring it.
