Begging the Developers' pardon, but what's with the blue quote boxes?

They're ghastly, imho. :(

I think once we get used to it it will make it easier to read. I remember when I first startd reading forums way back when it was a little hard to make sense out of the quotes. It might grow on you.

Well, I understand they're still in the middle of it all, but the color clash is Ugly!

Does this mean we're changing to a Blue theme? How very trendy, say wot?

I like the blue quote boxes. However, the smaller default font is making it more difficult for me to read the posts.

Ahhhh! Thanks KBR.
We have to be patient, I guess. A lot of these FX like the superwide boxes will adjust in time. ;)

Looking things over I can tell that these can be a bit annoying on posts that have a series of 6 or 8 quotes in them.

I'm sure they will. They have been working pretty hard on the forum code for quite some time now. As far as the upload problem, that I have no clue about.

This is how quotes are formatted over at Pirates@home. You can get some really weird pyramid looking formations. And the reduced font size is what Einstein@home changed over to not long ago.

I agree. Plus 10 for finally getting a real quote box. Minus 5 for decreasing the font size.

I just looked at Einstein's message board, it appears to have the same font size as SETI did before the change - bigger than is here now. QMC@Home has the smaller fonts all over their site, not just on the boards. Too small for my <whimper> ageing eyes.
