    Okay so many people (including me) are finding these new themes hurting their eyes and many are asking to restore the old black and gold theme.

    Here's a little pole about it.. just so the admins know what the most of members want. Decision is theirs, of course.

    Yes OR No?
    I'd say YES!

    What new theme? I'm still using Black and Gold, just VB4 version. Same colours, but layout is cleaner.

    Scroll down to the very bottom and on the left hand side there is a small drop down box.

    Change it to "vB4 Default Style" and it fixes most of the issues for now.

    Big change being white when it was black (please people no jokes) but it works and looks much better.

    I called that a new theme, my bad. LOL.

    Yes, the Black and Gold on vB4 doesn't look as good.
    The old one was UNIQUE which made BHW stand out from the Millions of vBulletin forums out there.

    The new version is a bit harsher on the eyes than the old one. Dark in some places and far too bright in some. It'd be great if they could add the old theme to the options, but I can live with this. Atleast it'll help my BHW addiction if anything ;)

    It causes more issues than it resolves. This being one of them.

    The Black & Gold theme is a bit better than vB4 default theme but the old one was the winner.

    If they could just tune this white back a few megawatts. I'm going sterile from the radiation.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. The old style made BHW stand out, and it was easier on the eyes. The new Black and Gold theme is a bit too busy in my opinion, it has all those lines, etc. Voted for Yes.

    Old is gold.

    But I guess we gotta keep getting used to the new one.

    You can't just "restore" the old style too simply it was designed for an old version of Vbulletin that we switched from in the upgrade, the new Vbulletin has alot of different theme functionality, hooks etc. To return the old theme would mean the designers need to completely rebuild it for the new vbulletin which is a huge under taking.

    We have this new black and gold theme and a default white theme for now, I'd rather see us focus on new functionality and more community involvement than waste time on a theme that many people will grow used to.

    I bet you hate timeline too? Don't worry so do I, I liked the old Facebook layout; but then I remembered I used to HATE it when it first came out. Give it a week to settle in and you'll be surprised at how you enjoy the new theme it took DD and team a lot of work to get the new BHW going let's at least give it a chance before we criticize
