Do these changes have anything to do with the current site problems? I'm just getting a blank white page.

We have the site in an 'offline' mode, so only staff can view it currently while we work out a couple of last minute bugs.

Swift has been completely re-done aswell, not sure if you guys are able to select it though.

http://www.neowin.net/index.php?theme=43

That link just gives me a white page. :/

Edit: Looks like you guys just put it out then back into staff-only mode. The Graphite theme looks awesome! :D

Graphite is indeed very sexy. Got to give the credit to Timan for that, he's been Tsar of the Pixels recently.

For some reason with Firefox 2 RC3, when I clear my cache and select Graphite, it still goes to the standard blue one? I keep selecting the option and it's not changing! :(

<image snipped>

the blue and red just seem way too bright compared to the rest of the theme. i think they should be desaturated a bit just so it fits in better with the rest of the layout.

NeoFlux, I had to clear my cookies as well. Actually, I just cleared everything. but I think the cookies are the problem. Try that.

Graphite does look quite nice but I agree about the red and blue being a little too bright for it.

Any chance one of these days you'll make a security sub-section? regardless I'm looking forward to these new sub-categories. :)

I don't want to put doubts in peoples heads, but don't expect anything soon relating the forum getting a new "skin". Already spending quite some time on re-doing swift for the new IPB2.2 which brings a bunch of crap and bloat :p hehe.

Sorry if this is a really obvious question, but how do I use this? I had it on for a while, but then I clicked the "Use old style" link by accident, and now I have no idea how to go back!

^ Bottom left, should say "Click Here", choose a shift colour (make sure to clear your temp internet files).
