What's with the Dennis-the-Menace stripes and that awful roll-over colour change ?

Turn it off !

Clock seems to be wrong as well.

Scratch that, had my timezone wrong in my control panel.

Clocks correct at GMT

'afraid the interface is the latest thing, and courtesy of about a million combined man-hours from the phpBB3 coding team:

If there is a button, haven't found it yet, but then there's about two zillion of them !

Clive, top work getting the upgrade done apparently so efficiently.

Regarding the style, check the PHPBB forum itself. That uses a clean simple style without garish colours and distracting rollovers. Check it out.

I vote you install it here ! It can be downloaded here:

It is a work in progress Andy and we have many other users to consider.

However, the look also has to integrate with the new club 80-90 website which if you look, is now re-styled as well as being built-in to the forum page in the menu above.

We have actually adapted that style, but used 'as is' would waste a lot of screen real estate because as you can see from your link, it is a fixed width, ideal for a small laptop but no good for large or widescreens (which a lot of people now use)

The general concensus amongst the team was to at least distinguish our forum from so many other phpBB forums using plain pastel templates.

Also, we have much more important fish to fry at the moment, to get this board up and running fully... e.g. functional issues, which have to take priority over everything else.
