Board Default Theme?
« on: 02 September 2018, 19:44:54 »
No matter how many times I try to set my theme to the "Steel" variant, the site always reverts to the Lyran color scheme, requiring me to manually change it when I log in.  Is there a Loki mole in the site support staff?

Yes.
Look, dude, when you are a real mechwarrior you don't need to get all dressed up in cooling suits and cool helmets to work on your mech. You just strip down to your 1980s panties and crop top vest and start wrenchin' it.

Are you logging in via a bookmark? The different schemes have a color code to them (for example, the Jade Falcon scheme is 'turquoise')- you can see this if you select a scheme and look at the web address. See if your bookmark is set to go to the Lyran scheme- if so, it's going to the 'blue' scheme because that's what the bookmark tells it to do.

I'll test that out... it happens on two different machines.  Thanks for the tip, Jade!

OK, I think I see the issue...  My original bookmark ("Top Site" in Edge) didn't have the "variant=Steel" at the end, and all the other book marks I have are the same (i.e., without the "variant" bit at the end).  It still seems odd that the board would default to Lyran blue vice Steel, but at least I've corrected my Top Site list...

Thanks again Jade!  :thumbsup:

The Internet.  It's more than just cat pictures.

Ya know, it's almost like someone purposefully made sure those poor Lyrans numero uno in the most sly way possible...

I mean, those FedRats can't have EVERYTHING!

Okay, guys, that discussion does not need to be reprised in here.
