I've experimented with the options before - avatars on the left, or on the right - but somehow I can't find where the black option is. Help?

Go to your User Control Panel
Select from the tabs Board Preferences
Under the header My Board Styles you have a couple of options.....

As a former subsilver2 user I can't get on with any of thse options
But at least the black has things in their correct locations

I suppose I'll get used to it
But I don't like it.

Really am being wussy here, but the basic problem with the black is the reversed out white type and the fact that it doesn't show off pictures to their best advantage - IMO.

I wonder what the problems that resulted in the deactivation of Subsilver 2 were, and whether they were a more severe impediment to using the board than this default theme is (the other newly added themes being even uglier than this Prosilver one is).

Not complaining though! :)

It's not just the colour scheme, it's all the different icons and positions of things.

What exactly was wrong with Subsilver2 and how come other bulletin boards are still using it?
