Yeah, this version has some changes that just...don't make sense to me.
Light Orange on white? Not a good idea, gets really hard to read. The quotes? White on baby blue??? Really hard to read against a black background, the boxes don't look great either. Plus, I'm still trying to figure out why Ferrel's spacing looks so nice, whereas when I tried to do the same thing, it turned out crap...(I even copied it to Word, changed it to single spacing (thinking that maybe I'd accidently set it to 1.5 spacing in my message, and couldn't figure out a way to change it back, ctrl-1 just made the font really big), then copied it back. Turned out exactly the same.)
Not sure I'd give up the MVL for that, but different spokes for different folks. We could potentially even move the MVL completely to the ToE forums, but I don't really want to do that, since it would alienate us from the rest of the GalCiv2 community, preventing us from gaining new members to replace the ones that move on.
I guess I can see some logic to making it automatically 1.5 spacing, that logic being that you don't have to double-space to seperate paragraphs, but I'd much prefer having to double-space than have lists look so...bad.
Oh, and medals are missing (of course.) Not the first thing I notice when I'm on these forums, but they're still nice to see, and I know they're a big deal for lots of people.
