Should we keep the light blue background in forum posts?

Yes. Keep it the way it is. I like the light blue background. It's very nice.

No. It's too blue and bright. Change it back to the dirty white/light grayish color of the old forum theme.

It's too blue and bright. But I want another color different from the above choices. Note: If you vote this option, then please specify the background color you prefer by posting it in this thread.

Well that's what I've done. I've used the light gray color from the old forum and put it into the background posts of this forum. I used the exact html color code. How do you like it now?

Ok I've changed the font of the forum posts to sans-serif. Now the text looks smoother and neater. How do you all like it? The default one looked funky and uneven.

I just increased the font size of the text a little bit, so it's easier to read. Hope it doesn't look too big for those of you who have big screen computers or laptops.

yeah i noticed it became easier to read.

I think the boxes around the profiles and stuff though should be a different color everything is bright on the page one color. Maybe make them a darker blue or something. I have a forum where the borders of the profile are a darker shade for that box.

Thanks for the offer, but I have windows set up to override color themes on websites. I have a black backround for everything with green text. I use the computer a lot and this is a lot easier on the eyes than staring into a light bulb all day. I wish they had screens like kindles and Gameboys for computer users. If you changed the color on my profile, my computer just overrides that.

It would be nice to be able to see the reply button. The old forum allowed that to happen even when windows is set on 'high contrast black.'

I don't care anything about seeing ads, btw. but they do show up.

What do you all think of the default colors of this new upgraded forum? It's the default prosilver theme again. Do you think the blue is too bright? What about the light blue background? I think it's kind of bright for a forum. I mean, I love light blue and all....... for the sky that is, and for the water at a beach resort too, and it's wonderful for baby toys too, but for a forum??? Kind of odd don't you think? The default colors should be the most agreeable colors that is the least controversial. Baby blue is kind of bright for that don't you think? Usually default colors are softer and less bright, like dark blue or dark green, or even black and white. Not bright colors like this. lol. It's a pain to change colors on a forum theme, so the default theme ought to be the most agreeable to the most people. That would be the most logical.

However, the developers at phpbb.com are kind of out of touch with reality and with people and human nature. I talked to them a lot lately and they seem to lack common sense. You'd think that computer programmers and coders are intelligent and above average in IQ. But these guys seem a bit clueless and lacking in simple logic, common sense and understanding people in general. I wonder if they are even human sometimes. lol. It's like they are in their own world. lol

Anyway, what do you all think? Do you like these baby blue colors? Or do you prefer the soft dark blue with dirty white background we had before? Cast your vote above if you haven't already. :)

How can anyone say that the theme is too bright? It's a nice cool blue. Leave it as is. You can also adjust your monitor and dim if necessary.

You mean you were ok with the bright blue theme yesterday before i darkened it? The one with the baby blue header and border, and light blue background? Did you cast a vote? Most didnt like those colors.

Btw keep in mind this poll is for the bright blue background yesterday, not the dark blue one i set up today. So cast your vote accordingly. If you made a mistake you can revote and change your vote above.

Ok I've changed the forum colors to the soft dark blue theme we had before. How does it look now? You guys like it? However, the background in posts is kind of too grayish. I couldn't figure out how to make it the dirty white color it was before. Do you guys mind the heavy gray color in the background?
