Ok, the page that customizes your profile, or http://www.pokecommunity.com/profile.php?do=customize, is a useful page, I'll admit. But, there should be a "Reset To Defaults" button so it reverts it to Forum Defaults in case you don't want one anymore.

Yay or Nay?

Oh, Captain Fabio liked this idea too.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but isn't that what Clear All (or Reset All Fields) does?

No, not quite. If you have a "Theme" going on, and you make more changes to that after saving, it reverts what was modified to what you have it set as. What I'm looking at is that when you first change it, there is a forum default, and I was wanting a control to allow that to come back after you change it.

It's difficult to explain, so I'll give you an example.

In my theme, my custom customization thing is really gross, IMO. I want to get rid of that completely, and not let anyone see it, so a "Restore to Defaults" button would be handy in this situation.

I support Team Fail's suggestion 100%. We could really use a "restore to defaults" button instead of spending the rest of the day just fixing our profile so much. Yay for me.

Makes life much easier. I wouldn't use it much, but it sounds much easier than wasting tons of time.

I just tested this out using my alt.
I changed the scheme, saved it, and then viewed it with this account.

I just randomly clicked crap, don't judge me.
Then, I back on my alt, and clicked the Clear All Button

and then this happened:

and...

then I went to go view it again..

It's gone.

How does the "Clear All" not empty the fields that you have customized, and thus return it to the forum default?

Oh, it's the "Clear All" button? Ok... Maybe it should be more... Uh.. What was the word... More obvious... Uh... That's all I can think of now, but just make it obvious.
