Still some good threads on here, though the volume of activity is way down so it's become a bit boring as well. Too bad. Used to be the best drum site on the planet. Just one guy's opinion though. I'm sure it will survive without reacting to much of the input from many that I've seen on here. Carry on.
    Thank you for your comments. I keep reading about strain on eyes with some members. The site now matches 80% of what's out there so I'm not sure I quite get it. To me, it's now cleaner and fresh looking. Numerous sites I visit have white backgrounds and gray text. I do realize we get used to a certain look or feel but unfortunately everything changes at some point. I think this is a positive change, especially when they get the background dialed in. I'm not just saying that because I work for them. By the way, I know from personal experience that the contrast of the lighting on your PC or phone is often the cause for eye strain. That and with me, if I'm not wearing my glasses, I will start to get eye strain.

    The activity is down some but not as much as you'd think. The visitation is still up but people aren't posting as much. If everyone would be more involved, we would all benefit. I will make an effort to post more often as well.

    Thanks for your comments everyone! Always appreciated!

    The issue Tom is mostly related to the background. Why have it? No matter what picture is there, any text that overlays on it will blend in and be invisible. The thread tree currently cannot be seen unless you move it so a portion of the background that is light in color. Other text that is light gets lost against a light background. Pretty sure if you lose the background............the problem is solved.

    Update:
    The shoutbox was heavy and dragging the site so we had to make adjustments to some plug-ins first. It is now re-installed and functional again.

    The background design was completed and implemented today. We know about the text being hidden in certain areas like the top thread menu and check box to stay logged in. We will be addressing those and other issues as time permits.

    There is still much going on with the site behind the scenes with regard to filtering, spam management, re-installing out of date plug-ins, etc. so we thank you for your patience as we get to everything.

    Why is it that when you post a YT video, it initially appears normal size, then when you go back to the post later it's ginormous??
