    I think that you have the blue boxes because you have chosen the Jango Fett Style:

    We sure can't get anything past you guys!

    The boxes aren't permanent, especially since no one seems to like them. We made the change because several people had mentioned that the Slave 1 icons were difficult to distinguish between new posts and no new posts. We wanted to implement something that was a bit easier to see. While the "big red boxes" are easier to see, they clearly aren't the most popular style so we will keep searching.

    In regard to other changes to the board, we have a number of customizations to the board that were uninstalled during our efforts to restore our email notification system. Those customization have not been reinstalled and there is a possibility they will not be reinstalled.

    As always, we are constantly making efforts to improve your experience here at TDH. Some days it is two steps forward, some days it is one step back. Thanks for your patience on the days when it is one step back.

    Aw...but I do like the big red boxes. Poor things are trying their best, but all you perfectionists demand too much, it makes them feel inadequate. Good job, you monsters.

    I like the mythosaur skull idea. I did like the Slave 1 too... but I gotta say, those red boxes gave me a bit of a start when I signed on and saw them the first time. I thought I had gone to the wrong site or maybe somethin' nasty was going on or something. LOL
