in reply to Be Creative

I have a better(?) idea.
How about we make the whole site style-sheet compatible, and have an option in user settings to specify a location & name for the stylesheet, that way everyone can personalize their own theme, without too much carp being added to the server.

update: How's this for clarification:
In user setting, where you specify what theme you want, you have an option to choose a style-sheet version of the site, with the option of specifying a location for the stylesheet.

    Stylesheets are one of the easiest ways to produce problems with different browsers. Taking a step like the one you suggest would rapidly result in a site that was only navigatible in recent versions of IE.

    That would be completely unacceptable to me since at home I use Netscape on Linux. If vroom took a step like you suggest and problems cropped up I would publically announce my reasons for leaving and if that didn't solve it I would. Certainly the stylesheets at a few home nodes has led to my avoiding certain people's home nodes. But the fact that the problem is localized has made it (almost) acceptable so far.

    So I really, really don't want vroom to allow people to use their own stylesheets everywhere.

      Stylesheets are one of the easiest ways to produce problems with different browsers. Taking a step like the one you suggest would rapidly result in a site that was only navigatible in recent versions of IE.
      I understand the proposal like this: When you _browse_ the site, it serves you a link to your style sheet.

      If you have a personal style sheet, it doesn't matter if it will break "different browsers". On person, one browser, one style sheet.

      /J

        That works. Have the stylesheet be per reader, not per poster. Makes sense to me.

        I was confusing this with an earlier thread that was definitely per reader.
