    bold font was better than the yellow square in front, yeah. oh well, what can ya do?

    I mean if you're motivated you can make you own browser plugin that will super-impose your css onto PA forums but is it worth the effort?

    My understanding is that Plannetary Annihilation, Inc is completely unrelated to, and un-associated with Uber.

    Anyway, I just now noticed the header stating that the Uber Entertainment section of the PA forum is to be archived this month.

    I didn't see this info anywhere why would they do that this forum is expensive and still paid out for (to my recollection) at least two or three years.

    yeah. those aren't (and won't be) forum domains. I still don't see why this one wouldn't be used.

    also if it won't then why all the new graphic changes to this one? (which reflect the lesser experience of the PA inc team over that of Uber ent).
    It could have stayed in it's old state to reflect that it belongs to Uber.

    as expected you read that backward (or wrong, I don't know, I don't mean to demean).

    "it" ("it belongs"), in that quote, references the current forum we are debating on if we admitted the theory that PA inc were moving to another forum.

    ...in which case changing this forum we're on now would confuse users as the change would be read (and is being read) as "PA inc-ish" and not "Uber-ish"

    a change that would reflect Uber more would be more orange and if you must change the background : more light grey with more of the man holding up the block.

    a change that would reflect PA inc more would be less orange and if you must change the background : a planetary annihilation commander.... much like what we have now.

    also this background doesn't follow the scroll showing some of that amateurish feel we'd expect from a mix of devs and modders.

    the question still aplies ..
    maybe uber gave a bit of last support to PA inc. so they can run this forum for as long as it can but other than that will take no longer part in the work surounding PA as a game ..
    i´m only speculating but i think representing the forum as is seems to mean that PA inc., PA:titans and this forum are meant to be its own thing independant from uber ent. ?

    maybe uber ent. sorta wants to start over fresh thus creating that new site? which then brings the question what games they gonna show present on that new site ..

    also grey even if you just meant it as example is a horrible color considering the colorfulness of the game .. cyan or skyblue may have been another choice, maybe they do want to have that bit of a nostalgic feeling that this was a game developed and published by uber ent. .. idk ..
