Nah, I'm not talking about your feelings towards the place (I think that's become pretty clear recently! :banghead:) but what 'Skin' do you use..? (selectable from the drop-down menu near the very bottom left of every page on the forum)

As a reminder, we have:

  • The Default Skin - basic and functional layout from the software provider
  • autoUNITY LoFi - predominantly text, nothing much graphically - ideal for mobile use
  • autoUNITY Lighter than Lite - similar to 'Lite' but with even less graphics
  • autoUNITY Lite - similar 'vibe' to the main 'autoUNITY Skin', but with reduced browser / processing requirement
  • autoUNITY Skin - very slick indeed! The flagship which currently hosts a static background subtly featuring members' cars


We also now have:

  • autoUNITY Bright - as the name suggests, it's very light in appearance! It also has a different layout on the main page - some will like, some won't - give it a shot!

It's just occured to me that a few newcomers might not even realise there is a choice! :banghead:


So, which do you use and why..? :censored:

Ah ha, you may need to click the little Paintbucket icon near the top right of your browser and select 'aU Member Photo' (don't tell me you missed yours being up there?!?!? :banghead:)


(by the way, check out all the backgrounds in the autoUNITY Bright skin... wo... :banghead: )

aU Lite as it processes quicker on the netbook, and I don't change it if I'm on anything bigger.

aU lofi on the mobile and kindle.

Background selection is only available in autoUNITY Skin and autoUNITY Bright :143: (top right, next to 'Rules and Guidelines', 'View New Content' and the RSS Feed icon)

aU lite for me. The aU skin took far too long to load.

I like how i see things though! :143:

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
