OK, so I just switched my preferences to prosilver, and it is not much better than the default. Now (with prosilver), there is gray text on a light blue/gray background. Still not enough contrast for my old eyes to read easily.

PLEASE add an option so I can see BLACK text on a WHITE background. Thank you.

Just a little annoyance from me on the redesign (otherwise I'm fine), I dislike that the Undread/New/etc is now hidden behind the quicklinks menu... Unread is the most commonly used button for me on the site.

That "unread posts" button is useless anyways, as many new information is not shown as "unread" when people re-edit or add to their current posts.

I'm glad that I can't log in to the wiki because of growing pains, because I had feared that the site was left for dead. I'll stage my wiki updates until things are back to normal. Thanks for all your efforts, they are definitely appreciated by many.

How do you find the section where all of the previous threads you've participated in are shown?

Can we also have a contest to update the photos at the top of the page, and or maybe a logo?

**Of course I figure out how to do it literally moments after asking the freaking question...

So far, I can't seem to get the login IDs from this message board to correlate directly with the logins for the wiki. Yesterday, I disabled the message board logins, and temporarily set it so you can create your own account and edit. Of course the spammers started to register and make their own spam pages. Disabled user logins and edits for now. I think I'm going to go the approach of having folks email me with their request to have a wiki account for the time being. This software is just not working well with the message board at all.
