Post up a screenshot if you don't mind... mine seems to be working fine! At the bottom of the main forum page you can change between two different styles.

Strange. I would also like to see a screenshot.

On my phone and computer the site seems normal.

I've never seen it like this. Usually it's got darker colors and....um, not sure but it's definitely more than just a color change for me.

yep, I used the darker theme style and now the darker theme is no longer an option. the normal theme (what the screen shot is) works fine but the darker style is gone

I like the dark theme better, less eye strain.

Now there's only the options for ranger 2009 or lightweight. lightweight doesn't work as it goes back to ranger 2009 when i try to change it.

Thats what happens when you change servers. Some things that were stored on Rick's servers we not transfered over. The important things are still here though.

He may have been using the original Xtreme style that was used before the current one was implemented in 09. Its no longer available on the dropdown menu at the bottom of the screen though since we have new owners and servers and all. Soooo his got switched to the new default (as of 09)

It's a lot of work to make an entire other theme for a website... Like a LOT of work.

Im sure it is, but I also know that v/bulliten has preloaded themes. Really looking just for a darker color to replace the white. I mean still have the same exact everything, just replace the white with a darker color. Then users can select which one fits their needs

Dim your screen on the computer. That is a lot easier and takes two seconds.
