The fonts and the colour palette are hard on the eyes and make it look like its from some kids game. Please make some changes that actually improve things and not make them worse. Thanks.

    Every time someone changes a forum layout, half the users always say it sucks.

    Sometimes it just takes getting accustomed to.

    Often, it's because some marketer thought the colour scheme they picked is "exciting" "vibrant" "lively" "not boring" ..... yada, yada, yada.
    Sadly, they never seem to realize that simple black and white (with reasonable size fonts) became so common over the years precisely because it is easy to read.

    This layout is more awful than most that I have seen, so I must conclude it's one of the latter group.

    To whomever designed this:  please change to something easy to read, and easy on the eyes.  Maybe start with black and white, and embellish just a little bit if your creative juices demand it.  Sure, your client or boss is paying you to be creative - but please do not lose all sight of usefulness.



    p.s.:  I just saw the drac hunt teaser page - with dozens of individual thumbnails at the bottom of every user that "liked" that post.  To the complete and utter moron, with zero clue of data transmission or storage, or page load times, that put this in, for the love of g**, PLEASE get rid of this useless and wasteful feature ASAP !!

    Hey - here's one for a good laugh.  I got to this forum, and clicked "games - battle pirates" at the top .... and was a bit surprised to see the game loading screen (that's the very initial one I think, when a new player first installs BP) show up ..... so I realized I was loading the BP game.   I hastily clicked on "community-forums" at the top, which brought me here.

    Here's the funny part - that got me to this forum, with the Battle Pirates theme music continuing to play in the background.   

    So, if any of you here would like to spend more time on the forums, but miss that theme music while you are here, there's a way you can arrange it - just follow the steps above  :)

    The game is actually still running, and there's no way to turn it off. You can get back to it because there's a bar at the top that says "Battle Pirates" when it's running.

    Only way I've found to turn it off other than close the whole page is to start War Commander, which then replaces Battle Pirates. :p
