What happened to the colours?

I have just signed up again after the hacking and it seems that the only colour option for OP is a vomit inducing/vomit coloured green which, when your eyesight is like mine is not only unpleasant but borders on painful.

I am assuming I am stuck with this and the only way to get free of it is to log out and not post?

Ahhh, have just realised it is not my OP that is that colour which is nice, but am still seeing it on others. It is truly disgusting though.

You can customise!

Apparently... But I can't find it grin

Would like to know how to change this too! When my screen isn't ultra bright I find it hard to see the difference between posters and the OP too.

To find Customise go up there ^^, where it says Talk there is a little circle with a downwards facing arrow. Click on the circle and a drop-down menu appears, including Customise. The colour changing options are in there - you can highlight your own posts and the posts by the thread author.

I already looked in there and I don't have it. Customise only gives me notification type options and thread watching options. I am not using a phone if that makes a difference.

I have eyesight problems and this isn't good.

I also have nothing for Acronyms

There was an error and there is no application layout in which to render it. The error reference is d8e54d84e. Give this to the system administator and ask them to create at least one layout for system ID 1

I think there are differences between whether you're on the desktop site, mobile or App. I believe the App is currently lagging behind in terms of personal preferences in Customise.

If you post on here which type of device you're using, desktop/mobile/App and what browser you're using then maybe MNHQ can give you some help?

If I recall, only posters who had their account pre-Jeffrey - and kept it - have the full Customise. New registrants seem to have been given a shortened version which doesn't have the old colour choices. MNHQ have never really commented on this - or on likely future developments.

I am using a laptop.

I also read, a while ago, that the colour options had changed after the hacking but never found out if that affected all users or if it was resolved. As I had no interest in posting at the time I didn't pursue it. Past threads don't seem to show a conclusion, I already looked.

I am also wondering why I have a blank page with the message on Acronyms, is it just me?

Here is the list of acronyms It's working fine for me - but I don't know what will happen on your laptop, OP.

Thank you Fru, it works ( I don't use it often but good to know I can access it if needed).
