Hello fellow VOGONS members,

This month (but probably this weekend), VOGONS will be updated to a new version.
So don't be alarmed if the board is in maintenance mode or locked down.

To ease the shock: it will look different.

More information will be provided on the launch of the new board.

It would be nice if the "last post" button on each thread was much larger. Not mobile friendly.

Buttons are larger on the upgraded ver.

Being at that place in life were eyesight becomes an issue I sometimes have trouble reading post content.
A wee bit more contrast between the font and the background would be helpful.

Thanks for asking.

That would be a nice feature to go along with text resizing, but the beauty of stylesheets is that they can also be overridden by the user.

Here's hoping we keep the blue! (Or at least have some skin options. 😉 ) It's part of this place's character IMHO.

(Also, I don't need any more eyebleed from trying to read tiny black text on a blaring white background on an actively-lit display, because a cohort of inept gen-Xers decided all websites should look like "paper" back in 2005.)

Seconding to keep the soothing color palette (at the amount of time I spend reading the forum, it helps)
Otherwise, any need for us to backup anything?

But hopefully still kinda the same. Please don't go completely "Web 2.0" on us!

Web 2.0 is fine, sneak peek:

@DosFreak.. that 2.0 screenshot gets me everytime. 🤣
Looking forward to the refresh!

Happy vogons deferred long enough to have completely skipped over those gross years of asp, flash, and IE-required extensions.

Just relax and wait for it 😀
It's not going to be the same old but it's not going to be horrible.
