    Some site update feedback

    Not complaining!....just some feedback.

    New posts in the adjudication threads ALL look like they are quotes (due to the gray background colour)

    I'd like to see the traditional display of "quotes" and replies ...ie...quotes are in gray boxes (with who you are quoting) and replies are black text on white background.

    I'm wondering if that it all looks like quotes just because we are used to the old version of the site that but quotes in grey?

    Above is an example of what quotes look like now. Seems ok. Agree?

    I agree with John, the gray background on every post is confusing, and even more so when someone has a signature like Jace's where the signature portion of the post has a white background, then a blank gray rectangle underneath.

    It's certainly possible my brain is just used to seeing black text on a white background, but this change feels like a miss to me.

    Just get rid of the grey background and use a black border around the text area imo...

    Jace. No I don't agree. I said that in the original/first post.

    As it currently stands, It's hard to quickly distinguish between a quote and a reply to a post (it all looks the same)

    ...I'm having to double read, so as to be sure who is saying what!

    To be clear...your above example of how the quotes look is OK! BUT...your reply looks like it is part of the quote (for want of better explanation)

    I digress. My above post, with Jace quote looks traditional.

    You're playing code games, Jace
