June, I'm sorry you're not liking it. What can I do to improve it for you?

While I agree that "I move that Matt is The MAN",
I don't know if it's better or not. I guess I'll get used to it with time.

Bear with me, I'm an old guy and don't have a lot of patience with computers and change in general.
I'm not tech savvy and wouldn't know what is worse or better. Most times I have no idea what "tech" people are talking about.
For instance, I have no idea what the poster above me is referring to when he says "user card on the right".

Regardless, I doubt my opinion makes any difference anyway.

Edit after re-reading the above posts:

background color on alternating rows is now a darker blue - I don't see any difference, but maybe I just never noticed it before
darkened body font color from dark grey to one hex step from black (so, essentially black) - Huh?
decreased row height on all pages that have rows of any kind - No idea what this means
I put back the H2 topic titles in each post in View Topic pages - No idea what this means
increased hamburger size substantially, and gave it some right padding [June] - What the heck is hamburger and padding?
adjusted attachments' "Attachment" word position - haven't noticed yet
increased max concatenated width of navigation breadcrumbs - No idea what this means
fixed some general bugs

I'm not trying to be a ball-buster. Just saying that as an old guy, I have no idea what a lot of this lingo means.
Well, does it work for you? You don't have to worry about those details.

June, I changed the (odd) alternating rows in these topic views to light blue, from white. Try it now. It's how the old style was.

It is much better. Now the yellow space behind quoted text can be seen and the alternating blue background is much better. The alternating white is a bit bright in appearance on the phone, but manageable. Thank you, June

It is working fine. Just some differences that I'll get used to.

Apologies for coming off "pissy" yesterday.
Keep up the good work. This really is a great and valuable site and resource.

It may be due to Waterfox, but when logging out, I see "nothing." I know where Logout is located....
