IGN has some color customization options that you can use if you subscribe to insider. If you don't want to upgrade or you want to tweak more than it allows, you can use CSS to make IGN look like this:



Or if you like it without the sidebar:




I made a stylesheet that changes all this that you can download here: http://acxdesign.com/misc/userContent.css Place this file in the chrome folder, found in your Firefox profile directory. For other browsers, you'll have to google around.

If you want to remove the sidebar, add "display:none;" under the class ".sidebar".

Note: the sytlesheet isn't working 100% for some reason. I'm going to work on it more tomorrow.

Just click:

http://www.ign.com/boards/forums/acfriends.80124/

It's a direct link at the moment...look at other threads here on how to tone down the bright white.

And click on warning links on how to hot get banned on the new ACF...things are kinda wonky, but hopefully will work out after a while.

Mangler had an accident on the way home from the liquor store. He was run off the road and crashed into a woman's clinic. It was one giant Pabst smear.
