    Members, want to let you know that in August we will be upgrading the forums to Xenforo 2. Because this is a significant upgrade, there will be a change in forum design and reduction in available styles.

    To see the base design, please take a look at our development server at Student Development Network

    If you have any design or style suggestions, please post here.

    i think this design looks way better though one way to make the other one easier on the eyes is by making the colors a bit darker.

    Maybe stretch it out to be more of the screen.
    + darker colors.

    Will the "Old Blue" style still be available?

    No. But I’ll make sure we have a style that matches those style’s colors exactly.

    The colors on the demo are great...but that may be because I really like the old style blue... :)

    As long as there is Light Blue 2013-2017 I'm good.

    The website should be wider like it currently is.
