Can't say anymore really. The skin changes by itself while I am just doing my usual navigation around the site. Very strange.

It does that in Mozilla Firefox too when using the "Boxing Day" & "January Sales" items on the "MORE" menu, but changes back again when using the "Deals", "Vouchers", "Freebies", "Ask", "Misc", & "Feedback" Forums.

It also happened during the use of the "Black Friday"/"Cyber Monday" pages, & when the "Flamedeer" competition page was present.

The web development team seem to have forced the "New Responsive" ("New Front End") skin for the new additions to the site, but have not made this consistent across all areas.

(In conjunction with the usual expiration of the cookie setting to dictate which "skin" is being used, I suspect a majority of the many, many threads reporting a loss of the "old skin" [September 2011] or "new skin" [latest], & seeing the "New Responsive" design, have not noticed that the site design changes back again as further progression around the site occurs).

Given the fact that there has been no input to any of the existing "site design" threads by any of the site's representatives in the last two weeks, you may have to wait until the Canadian-based web development team are back from their festive holidays tomorrow (onwards).

Cheers fanpages, I only really noticed it yesterday.
I have stopped drinking for January so that may be why. ( Tongue in cheek smiley. )

This is still happening to me and I don't know why.
Anyone looking at it?

Edit, it just changed to the newest skin by entering this comment. I have no idea which old skin it was on, or why.

Anyone care?

I am on two sessions now in IE11, W7. One session is the new skin and the other session is an old skin. I have no idea why.

If you refresh the contents of the tabs, they should change to the "skin" that was the most recent setting in your browser session.

Still no comment from Devs or Owners. :(

It's only been 6 weeks so I suppose I have a while to wait yet.

Are you saying it is still changing randomly?

I'd settle for getting the old skin back some of the time, even if only randomly. :(

I get these two differing images when I click my profile.
I have no idea why they change and I cant force one over the other.
The one with "HELLO" in it is the more prominent one.

The advanced search result page isn't actually on the responsive skin yet and as it looks there is a slight difference in this dropdown. This will be fixed when this search result page is moved over as well.

Oh I see. So it's not two different skins. My mistake.
This can be expired now thanks.
