I'm seeing the same thing. Right now, I only noticed it in the Netgear forum. Haven't done an exhaustive check.

My colors were screwed up too. I went here »/join/forums and found "Universe" in the theme area where I usually leave it blank. I set it back to blank and most of the forums went back to normal. Security forum was powder blue. I'll clear my cache/history and try again.

I'm seeing it, too.
Makes some forums *really* hard to read!

your theme is 'universe'? do a shift-reload

The black colored font looks good, but the yellow is driving me nuts. I can hardly tell what I'm seeing on my laptop.

My colors weren't like that before at all, they were blue.

Edit: I came out of my Charter Theme and it's still the same.

Colors also look messed up in the Secret Cooler Forum.

I look at 'no theme', and it is white as it is supposed to be.

If you are over-riding a particular theme and it looks wrong on a particular page, or all pages, post the theme name and a screenshot of the page.

If you are in a forum with a theme-override, and it looks wrong, post the theme name and a screenshot.

The yellow font was with the universe theme, but after the shift reload, it fixed the color problem.

Too many colors with the followed links being different on the Fav Forum page.

I count 5 different text colors, a couple different text sizes, probably 10 total colors....overload!

you need to post the theme you have setup and a screenshot.

Some themes leave the 3 link colors (visited, unvisited, hover) undefined, leaving them up to your browser setup.

I don't get that, I think you need to do a shift-reload.

A certain forum is red, which looks horrible.

My side panel is still black.

It's not user-specific. Several people have reported the same thing happening at the same time (it was even happening to me). Too much for it to be a coincidence. However, it seems to have gone away.

No theme for me. It's the default theme.

The text colors are the left Nav with 2 colors being black and red, the top nav tab with black and bold black, the cookie trail being purplish (visited) in bold and non-bold and black, forums being bolded blue for not visited and bolded purple for visited (with a green background) along with the clear/change position being purple if visited, for posts in a forum (all on the fav forum page) you have purple for visited and blue for not visited along with red or yellow envelopes denoting the same thing. Add in the text on each thread line with blue for the poster, black for the post count and black for the last post date.

Looks more like a paint store exploded

My link colors are changing as well. I have no sitewide theme override in place. There's a certain forum especially where the links are all red.

The devnull forum has a broken theme, it named all the links to be white! A theme usage bug until now just hid that problem. I've set the devnull forum theme back to "default".

Need Site Help has orange text for some reason and links on the New York board appear purple if one has visited them already, which has never happened before.

The various mods are going to have to fix their themes.

They are the ones who set the link colors in the first place!

IM your local mod, if a specific forum has a specific problem with link colors or IM me the forum name.

I tried working with the theme to correct the colors...all it gave me was jumbled up code when I pressed save.

Oh that turned out not to be theme related.
Someone had used BODY tags with LINK colors in the FORUM HEADER definition
