I had to stop my URL shortener service brwnco.at because it was used by spammers :evil:

I will look for a solution to get it back online as fast as possible.

Hi Everyone,

Newly joined on the forum and have noticed something about this site that I am not able to tell if it's a problem at my end or the way the site is designed.

To wit:

Whenever I click on the screen, everything goes dark grey and it becomes very hard to read what I'm typing. Clicking on the screen again makes everything brighten back to legible levels. However, if I'm clicking on a button when the screen is greyed out, I have to click TWICE: once to brighten the screen and once AGAIN to actually activate the buttom I'm clicking on.

Is this a security feature built into the system? Is it a glitch? Or is there something wrong with my laptop? I'm not sure. All I know is that this makes it hard to read what I'm typing when I post and the click/pause to brighten/click again business slows down what I'm trying to do on the board.

Help! Pretty please?

Oh, and there's this funny green banner across the corner of my profile box when I post. Not being literate in Chinese, I have no idea what it means or what it's saying. Anyone out there know? I can't find anything on it in the FAQ. (Nor was the problem I mentioned above in the FAQ either, alas). Thanks!

To be honest I have no idea where the "greyed out" problem comes from. Have you tried a different browser or a different pc to see if it also happens there? What browser are you using? Has anyone else noticed this problem?
As a workaround you could change the board style to "Acidtech Firefly", maybe that works better for you than the default style.

The green banner just says online in chinese. This is a Firefly board after all, so I had to put in some chinese somewhere :-)

Wow. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly on this.

Okay, I'm using IE 9. And I'll change over to Acidtech Firefly to see if that clears the problem up. Back in a bit!

Yup! That did the trick. OMG! what a relief. My eyes were going to mutiny in a minute ... Hmmm. I wonder why the default didn't like my laptop?

Oboy.

You know I've got to go back and try all of the board styles now, right? Cuz I want that green online banner in chinese! LOL! Back in another bit. Thanks F-N-S!

And having tried all of them, Fireflyprops and Fireflyprops 1024 both grey out and slow down on me. Minimal is just too blinding white, with font too thin, to bear thinking about. Acidtech Firefly it is, then. Gotta say, it's got great legibility and the colorscheme is really nice. ^_^
