I suspect most folks will have at least a vague memory of BBs if they have been on the internet for a while.
I was a little surprised by the sheer number of people who had never seen anything like it before.
As I recall, 30 plus years ago, the only folks my age who were even interested in looking at monitor screens were either weekend geeks or were forced to interact w/computers because of their jobs. I was a bit of both, but most of my peers thought that computers & the internet were tools for flunkies & secretaries & bookkeepers, like typewriters & & those new fangled word processors were! 😱

I guess I missed all that. Probably because computers were absolutely vital to my ability to get through school. I'm not sure I could have done it even 10 years earlier.

That is a boo boo...that should have said on the left...I changed back to pro silver, because it puts it on the right andI like it there, as far as I know, you can't change that inside any option, you have to use an option that puts it there....

Oh, I got a little excited there. I'm used to seeing my avatar on the left but I can see how people might like to have a different layout.

Isn't it on the left in the default style?

Yes, it is. I changed to Elegant because of the color scheme, not because of where the avatar is. It happens the avatar placement is fine for me but Zangie needed a different layout for her preferences It's all good.

I really like the layout of elegance. I liked it so much that I didn't notice it used a serf font until I tried to use it long term. Serf fonts trigger dyslexia and I couldn't do. It broke my heart. I'm on digi now.

This is strange - none of the options we have come up as serif fonts for me. *I* got a little excited as I prefer them - they are much easier for me to read than sans serif fonts. But all the fonts are sans serif in the our UCP when I try them out.

I think the UCP is fixed font (I know the administrative control panel is for sure). It's the fonts used in the posts that change. Elegance is definitely Serf in the posts.

I would have not guessed that was a problem. Part of my issue, which has to do with my eyes, is that dark backgrounds with light text become a light show for me....lots of blurs, almost completely unreadable, so I was very excited to see a simple black on white. Quite the irritant that the font choice can't be changed. :-(

I don't even know what a serif is, or what it looks like as opposed to non serif...lol..so, I guess it doesn't matter to me...lol

Here you go Z. :)

Ok that didn’t post as I expected with both serif and nonserif options. This is a serif font - it has little strokes attached to the ends of the letters.

Ah, thanks, good to know, I have never really paid that much attention fonts, other than whether I liked the way they looked...lol
