It has been considered - and rejected. It makes it impossible to make meaningful changes if/when necessary if you have no idea what individual forum members are seeing. It may be a fun touch, but for...

Looked into that, but the way the code for the quotes is generated you end up with the same "style" element around each nested layer, so there's nothing to distinguish a quote from a...

I'd rather not lose the visual identity, plus it also gives a handy space for the warning message which I think has really helped recently. Provides just the right "nudge" when emotions run high...

The moderators are busy folk who give very generously of their time. You can't realistically expect them to write an analysis of every action they take. At least, I certainly don't expect that of...

I have taken the blue strip off the top of posts other than the first post. The grey should be less distracting. I've also dialled down the colour that goes behind the actual post body text. Again,...
