Site Update: New Alternate Layout Aug 19, 2014
One of the most frequent complaints about the site is the unusual color scheme, which not few readers tend to find straining to their eyes. To those we can now finally offer a solution. If you take a look at the site header menu above, you will find it has been extended by two buttons - the right one allows switching to black text on a bright background. Please understand that it doesn't yet work on all pages as some are still built with completely different HTML code, but it should be active for about 90% of the site. If you happen to run into any other issues with it, please notify us on the forums or on Facebook.
