Mine had gone back to blue/silver this morning. I followed your instructions to change it back to orange and black and it's stayed that colour now. :clap :clap

Yeah that's strange, It's supposed to be Black by default, unless changed.
As long as people have the option to change it. :thumbs

Woah, it's bright now! I was so used to the old black/orange design.
There's orange and black, then there's orange and black!!!!

That's because there's only 35 posters who've managed to switch it back!

I did think there might be some who didn't know how to get it back, that's why I put the message at the top of the board.
But surely not as many as that.

I did notice the header at the top. Would you know if all those people have been logged in during the change?

No I just get the numbers, not the users.
There could be a few who haven't yet logged back in.

We had an incident on the whatsapp group where someone tried to send a message on their phone to their friends, with tips that had been posted on this site.
It was inadvertently sent to the whatsapp group for all to see. Obviously he had fcuked up.

We went to a lot of trouble to make Puntersmate completely private.
It's crucial that when someone joins us at Puntersmate, they can take our word that everything posted on here is for our members use, and kept completely private.

Anyone found to be passing on information to others from puntersmate will have their account closed immediately.

I'm looking into the Bold issue, and looking at the post above, it seems ok to me.
Anyone else, have any thoughts.

Well it is really mate, it's because of the white on black.
If you press Ctrl and + at the same time does it look any clearer.

Must admit it's clearer if you switch to prosilver style though it's bright on the eyes, at first at least.

I got the 3 words but only just after struggling for a while - and it could certainly be a lot better, I'm using the orange and black style too.

I had to remove the you tube thread after the forum update, as loads of the links were not playing.
Hopefully it's sorted now.

To post a video anywhere on the forum, all you need to do is post the link, and it will convert to video.
Just like this.

Apologies if you are having trouble with the site today.
The Puntersmate server is experiencing a Dos attack, and the hosts are busy trying to prevent it getting any worse.

The Puntersmate board has been updated overnight.
Please let me know if you have any problems.

Once again we are faced with the issue of the board style not being available, as the author no longer updates it.
So still working on that. But we will have to change to a different style sooner rather than later.

My screen has reverted to the old dark style Col. Can't find where to switch back to silver.
