Didn't expect that. Although, I am pretty sure I am not alone using that...

Well since the new randi.org website has no link nor even a passing reference to this forum , despite their assurance at one time they would keep a link for several months, I suggest we delete the JREF topics as soon as possible and move this thread to a more appropriate section.

JREF made some request for changes when they wanted the site moved. We're still to process them, but some things will be moved around.

I was referring to threads or specific forums, like the MDC, not people. That also seems to have been icerat's meaning when he responded to my question.

I found a passing refernce

It might have been better to keep the same color scheme just to ease the transition. I chose "The Red One" in my options and it makes the forum look the same as it did before. IMO that should have been made the default.

So far I've had no hitches except that it's not as easy to type search terms anymore. My way of accessing was to Google the old acronym. By using the terms skeptic and skeptics I've found other forums where, IMO, the standards for logic are much lower and posters provided fewer links, etc.

I know a bookmark or shortcut would solve this but absent that it if you are using just search terms you could land somewhere else.

This is the best forum I've found for civility, logic and links to real data. If there are others I'd like to know about them.

You are wrong. It very definitely used to be blue. It probably was the same blue as the new blue because I recall it was the vBulletin default color. It changed to red around 2006 or 2007, I think. I believe the red was to match the colors on the JREF website.

Nice.

To be really picky with the original, and thus yours, if we were viewing it exactly from the side we would only see one vertical string holding each earth as the other would be obscured behind it (A, below). If we aren't viewing it exactly from the side, as implied by both strings being visible, then we would only see one complete earth, and each of the others would be partially hidden from view by the one slightly in front of it (B, below). If B, then you would need some perspective, as in C.

You are perspectively* correct. In this case, I used 'two' strings to get the idea of it being a Newton's Cradle across more effectively. Had I used only one, while more correct from a perspective perspective, it would mostly just appear as globes on strings to the average viewer.

*Not a real word

That would be the old Egyptian way of showing things: not in perspective, but with all important features displayed.

Actually, now that I've had my coffee, from a true perspective view, the end globes two strings would be visible, only the center globes would obscure the second strings. The bottom line was, I went with a more 'graphic' representation of the Newton's Cradle than a perspectively* correct version.
Zax made a nice animated version of it too...

In my view, you made exactly the right choice representing it the way you did in the still image. It's just as soon as one swings the globes that the oddity of the string position becomes quite apparent.

You are also right that from a true perspective point of view, if you were viewing from the midpoint of the line of globes, with the globes at your eye level, then only the centre one would have its front string obscure the rear string. Architectural elevations, however, assume a planar view (ie you look at the view as though you are 90 degrees from anywhere in the entire view of the subject at the same time). Because you showed each of them the same (ie no attempt at perspective) then it's hard not to think you are viewing an architectural elevation....and so we go back to my original point.

However, I think we digress, and AAH awaits digressions in this 'ere place.

JREF was whichever of a few different color schemes you chose to have. (I always used a bluish green one.) This place is whichever of a few different color schemes you chose to have. (I've picked one of the two purple ones.)

I hadn't realized you could change it, but it seems that I'd never scrolled down far enough through the "Edit Options" page to find the "Miscellaneous Options" before.

I've now set the "Forum Skin" to "The Red One", and it's looking a lot more familiar.

(But I guess it's still going to have me feeling blue until I log in.)

You ain't the only one, however it seems to go back to default when first opened without the IP "Remember me" retained (ain't tried it the other way yet).

Strange, even with the "remember me" box ticked it still starts off blue next time I log in, and it remains blue even after I log in. But when I click on a link it suddenly remembers to replace the blue with red.

Yeah unfortunately that's the forum software plugin for the front page; it wasn't coded to follow your style choice, it shows the same style to everyone regardless of what you pick (in this case shows The Blues to everyone).

Actually that was a JREF dictated thing - when I customized the Forum style it was meant to tie in with the update to the JREF website... but given the furore caused by changing from the default vBulletin 3.x blue I created the sub styles so folk could have their own choice of colour. With the JREF a distant memory I've unlocked the style so the Forum HomePage should now display in a Member's chosen style.

Nice, where/how did you do it? I thought I'd gone through all those settings and couldn't find it.

EDIT: Wow, now I feel stupid now I see it lol.

I didn't see it down there before now either. I actually did find it in the settings.

I clicked on the Edit Options link in the User CP menu, scrolled down until I found the Forum Skin section, and there it was.

I guess I never bothered scrolling all the way down to the bottom of a page before now.
