I seem to have clicked on something that changed my display preferences. The main site is now very minimalistic, with fewer controls and different fonts, and I want to change it back, but I can't find where! Help?

Screenshot? AFAIK you can't really personalize the UI... – Yannis Jan 22 '12 at 12:41
Can you post screenshot please? – Shadow Wizard Jan 22 '12 at 12:41
Also, very crucial: what browser are you using? – Shadow Wizard Jan 22 '12 at 12:42
@ShaDowWizArd - I don't think holograms use browsers. – Oded Jan 22 '12 at 12:47
@Oded sorry, I missed the pun.. ? – Shadow Wizard Jan 22 '12 at 12:54
@ShaDowWizArd - The OPs avatar and name are a reference to a character from the TV show Red Dwarf, a hologram called Mr. Lister. – Oded Jan 22 '12 at 12:55
@Oded lol good to know! :) – Shadow Wizard Jan 22 '12 at 12:57
@ShaDowWizArd - We should all know about obscure British sci-fi comedies from the 80s! That and Kishkashta! – Oded Jan 22 '12 at 12:58
@MrLister - I Need a better prescription. The avatar looked to me like Rimmer... – Oded Jan 22 '12 at 14:46

Did you click on the "mobile" link shown in the footer? It could be you clicked on it by mistake.


If that is what happened, then the site would appear similarly to the following screenshot, taken for this very site. (The screenshot shows just part of the page.)


If this is the case, you just need to click on the "full site" link that is present in the footer. In a browser that is not for a mobile device, it could seem the "full site" link is not really a link because the cursor shape is different, but clicking it changes back the site to the normal design.

And, as for that mouse cursor not being okay, kiamlaluno figured out that problem too, @MrLister ;-) – Arjan Jan 22 '12 at 15:50
