Anyone remember the day when GF had the option to change the format you viewed the forums in? Like they had the light template, the dark one, that retna-searing white format?

We had the melee, sure, but things really weren´t all that different. With the one exception that we had less people complaining about how bad the forums are compared to the year before.

People who focus on the good things from the past and fail to see the potential of the future are doomed to repeat the mistakes made so frequently by humanity; who's inclination for self examination detracts from his need for self determination.

You need to forget and commit to remembrance only, the characters and themes of your past lives, and focus instead on making your present and future the very best they can be. That which has happened can never be recreated or reproduced. Instead of aspiring to be what has gone before, aspire to be the very you can be in what is to come!

Never forget the past, never unlearn the lessons you have learned, but use that knowledge responsibly in the formation of a better future, not the recurrence of a past that is best left where it is... behind you.

Looks like 2009 is going to be a good vintage. Almost a new 2003 ;)

I think the admins put the new skins option as a low priority when doing the major VB 2.0 to 3.0 updates, and then just forgot about adding in new and old alternate skins.

In short, they procrastinated and they forgot about it and it never was reinstalled.
