Re: How do you read this board?

For a whole year I readed the forum on the metal stylesheet, and I still prefer it, but right now I'm on the sand one, just to break the routine.

Re: How do you read this board?

I read it bottom to top, starting with the Chat Room. I use the "sand" stylesheet because it's very easy on the eyes and not the same color as my browser.

Re: How do you read this board?

For anyone that doesn't know what the stylesheet thing is...if you go to "my stuff" then "my preferences" and a little bit down the page it says "preferred stylesheet" and it changes the colors of the board sortof. Like Chris said it can help with the eyes! I use fabulae as it seems darker to me and easier to read. And my browser is the metal color, so the fabulae provides a contrast.

Re: How do you read this board?

One is definitely "other". Unless I know there is something going on and looking for an update on some light news from "friends" I dont typically hang in chat much. I tend to check out the active topics first (well after any Mod stuff) and then check out items of interest to me. This can vary depending on my mood and "life". I think my style is metal but I cant remember for sure and I am too stinking tired to go check now.

Re: How do you read this board?

i first check the active topics... then check any topics i've participated in... then i look over at recent/new topics... and before i log off i check my list of watched members

my stylesheet is set to Fabulae. the others require me to wear my glasses which are usually downstairs!

Re: How do you read this board?

First, I check the topics I have posted in, which are usually from the health, senior, in loving memory and where are they now. But I also check when I have posted elsewhere just in case I have offended anyone . Then it is top to bottom but I don't read all sections (rarely pictures or introductions) or all topics in a section. I read chatroom last and only if I have time. .

Re: How do you read this board?

First the active topics, then top to bottom. No clue what a stylesheet is.

Re: How do you read this board?

I tend to read only the sections that interest me. I spend more and more time in the dog sections and less and less in chat and although I wouldn't want to see chat done away with, I'm happier for it. It's the easiest way to avoid a persistent troll who only lives in chat.

As for stylesheet - color me metal. It matches the metal look of so many Mac applications that it fits well in what I see on my monitor every day. Actually rather comforting to me. I see enough of styles similar to the others in PC land when I'm at work.

Re: How do you read this board?

I tend to read only the sections that intertest me. I very, very rarely go to the breeder or puppy sections. I'm more of an older shelter dog kind of person. My work PC is blocked from seeing all pictures now so that kills the pictures section.

I know what a stylesheet is, but didn't realize that we had a choice. Mine was set to the default one which I now know is metal.
