Windows 7: Did the quote boxes change here recently?

Did the quote boxes change here recently?

I'm not a big fan of the way things look right now. Things seem to blend in together more and I don't see a good clear distinction between the quoted messages from above and the responses.

Anybody else notice this, or is there another thread already discussing it (I searched, but didn't see any results that looked right).

What forum skin are you using?

I use Seven Blue and haven't noticed any changes.

I'm using SF Blue Wide and have been for awhile...This is how mine look


When there is just 1 quote block and 1 response...it's not too bad. But when there are multiple..it all seems to blend together.

It's possible that I am losing it and it has always been this way

Edit: I did change to your theme and it appears with a big box around it...rather than what is shown above.

It could either be john playing with the quote boxes, or as you say, you've just never really noticed it before.

I'm certainly no stranger to that particular aspect of observation

I've been here a while and have quoted many things in the past...i find it hard to believe that I overlooked something that has been driving me nuts all day today.

That's how that skin has always been.

Using Seven Blue skin, quotes really clear to see.

I believe BFK is right. Pretty sure the quote boxes with SF Blue/Wide have been that way since that skin's been around. I always use Seven Blue, quotes boxes are more noticeable. Different skins, different looks.

Will you please do the same to the regular (not wide) SF Blue skin?


Thank you!
