I use the ---- SF Blue Wide theme as I like to make the most of my screen estate.

Unlike many other forums, where you have a very restrictive choice of skins (if any at all), John (z3r010) has made a great effort on his Forums to provide a number of skins to suit people's needs. It is not compulsive to use a particular one, as each user is free to pick and choose any of the skins which s/he finds most comfortable to use. If, however, you find a problem on one or more of the skins (missing functionallity), please let him know.

I've played with most of them at this point and everything does seem to function the same regardless of the 'skin' in use.

The default seems the best to me, but it's great that this site has a selection of skins.

Magus I have tried using other themes, but I always come back to SF Default.

As in Dwarf's quote, effort has been made to provide a number of skins to suit needs/personal preferences.

Mine happens to be the default, I like the contrast between the various page elements,

One thing that I have noticed is I hesitated to switch back to default after I used the three black themes; black, black wide, and pitch black.
I have a visual difficulty (contrast) with black themes, but there is a softness to these three.

That is probably the reason I do not like the beta black bar that google is trying out now on their search pages.

If you like default, choose SF Default (CDN), it's said to be faster. A Guy

P.S. (CDN) does NOT mean Canadian

Aero features work for Aero Themes but not for My Themes
I just did a clean install of Windows 7 Professional and used Double Driver to reinstall all my drivers. Everything works fine with one exception. When I switch from the default Aero Theme to one of My Themes, the Aero features no longer work (i.e. transparency, thumbnails on the taskbar, ect.) ...

Is there a Forum issues Forum
Most places I've been to have a dedicated subforum for handling issues or questions regarding the forum, moderation and similar. Do we have one such here?
