    Press F5, if you would indulge me. Those of you with modern browsers (Anything that isn't IE7 or older) will notice that instead of boring underlines, all of our links now glow when hovered. Please let me know if it causes any problems and, for my own curiosity, let me know if your browser does not support it.

    As an added measure for our visitors that are using unsupported browsers, the links themselves will turn a more vibrant shade of blue while hovered.

    OFMGFMGOFMG GLOWING!

    Its a nice touch tho, but it can make some of the smaller text links a bit.. fuzzy I would say the word would be?

    It's a consequence of stretching the shadow to create the glow effect. The worst "fuzzification" on my monitor/browser combo is "Advanced Search" in the bottom navbar. I honestly am relying on feedback since my monitor/GPU combo outputs in 1080p. A little fuzz to me might be unreadable to someone else.

    I'm working on something less subtle right now.

    Only corrective feedback I have for it is that it would be nice if the "Thar be posts here!" icon on the forum board list popped a little more than the "Thar be no posts". Yeah, I can see the difference on my set up but it's not a great deal of difference and it took me a couple seconds to realize which forums had posts when I first saw it.

    Otherwise it's all great stuff.

    Reverted for two reasons.

    1) What Arcturus said.
    2) Don't want the Black Ops Insignia to be overplayed.

    Ramses II Help, I can't change my title!

    You mind giving black ops members something where others have stars?

    Hi Blaqk, a bit fuzzy on my screen unfortunately. Windows 7 (1680 x 1050).

    The shadow is blue regardless of what the text you highlight is; i.e. mouse-over an Black Ops, Administrator or Moderator, and they have a blueish glow rather than a glow relevant to their color.

    It looks pretty cool on the white names.

    Reduced the glow to 0.5 pixels. That should fix 99% of the fuzziness while keeping the glow effect.

    I uhh, don't even see the glow anymore.

    It's barely there. It's the best compromise between glow and readability.

    Y'know most of us don't have half-pixels. ;P
