How do you get AVS to look like the old retro version? All of the white is just killing me--it's hard to view.

From the top of the AVS website where it says "Home-Forums-Reviews, Aricles, Galleries, My Profile.....click on "My Profile", click the tab "Edit Account Details", scroll down to to the bottom and choose "Site Skin".

You can't. Retro is gone forever. Your only choices now are white or black. I've used Retro since i started reading AVS back in 2000, but i've come to really like the black color now and memories of Retro have faded . . . .

Aside from using the Black skin, some people have found other options by tweaking their browsers.

It probably costs more for Retro so they axed it.

It's the same kind of mentality as LCD and soap opera effect.

I guess it's time to go black and never go back--all the LCD lovers can stick with white!
