I know the white one is supposed to be the surf at work theme, but i would like the white one with avatars and signatures. Theres a thread all about this here http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/t=43254.html, where GCO asked for feedback. On a personal note, i think the desert cam is a little walty, kind of like coming into an airsoft forum. Thats just me though, i expect the desert cam will be enormously popular.
When it changed last night half-way through me using the site, my initial reaction was that yes, it was a little bright and plain. But Mr Potato head was still there so i thought i would just have to get used to it.
I didn't like the fact that you couldn't see the avatars and signiture boxes though. Looked boring and like every other forum out there. But it is a good idea if you are trying to surf at work. Some of the avatars on here are filthy and give me a giggle. Not quite the stealth surfing required for worktime practices
I have now changed my preference to desert cam for a few reasons,
1. I didn't like the other themes, they were too boring
2. It shows the avatars and signature blocks
3. Mr Potato-head still makes an appearance at the top
Now I find that this preference is considered the most 'Walt - like'. Just because I prefer a bit of green in the theme as it is the ARMY rumour service does not make someone a walt.
Fair play to the COs for bothering to give us a choice of the way we want to view the site
Irish Doris I am with you I too opted for desert cam mainly because its easy on the eyes, it does not make me look like a NHS middle level purchasing manager scrolling down his floor wipe catalogue (what's non walt about that eh?), Actually the desert cam skin allows me to pretend that I am on a uber underground, hardstep drum and bass record label site and in fact I am 'keeping it real'.
If anyone goes for the 'crab lite' varient well they are not the ones to be crying 'walter'.
Also 'the' ARRSE theme IS the desert cam that everyone voted for. You're on the white one if you were on the light blue one before as it was the closest. You can change it in "My Account" under preferences.
I probably will do a "Not so white" version with avatars etc., but I need to crack a new front page first to give you something else to complain about. Wouldn't want you getting bored
And by the way, please take the trouble to read before posting bone polls and comments in the Current Affairs forum!
Good Co don't under sell your creation, ARRSE is bloody newsworthy! Its in current affairs as it was MY current affair first thing in the morning when the only stable platform in an uncertain world........
