Hello administrators...I love Dimestore Saints, and I love the poster...but I'm finding that having it in tile format all over the backgrond is not very easy on the eyes and pretty distracting. Am I the only one that thinks so ? Sorry, didn'tknow where else to put this message!

Yeah, its sort of distracting and doesnt suit the current layout for everything else on this forum at all.

Distracting, but at least it lightened things up a little bit... it's all so dark to me. I'd love the option to customize the display settings. Do we have that here? I actually need to check. Other forums I've been to have had that option.

Distracting from what exactly? Are you unable to read or type because you're hypnotized or something?

I think "too busy" would be a better phrase, actually.

in chaning the background I was trying to move away from the American Slang look, not only because the band is done touring for 2010, but also because we have had a non-AS release, the 7'', and as Brian is already talking about writing the new album

but I accept that the high contrast image I picked may not have been ideal

here then is another attempt (it's lower contrast, but less black)

however, as I am not trying to run the show, feel free to post your own background images, though I can't set these up to rotate automatically
