I voted no just as a personal preference but I don't care all that much. Content matters more to me than aesthetic fluff. Unless you go way out and start using a lot of purples, pinks, and nauseating color combinations, I'll continue to use this site no matter what you do with color.

Basically the same colors just a brighter rendition of them.

Ron, doe the BB you use allow for choice of skins by the user? I know some of them do.

Yes, I did make the colors brighter, in the past month or two a few people told me the forum was to dark.

There is an option of different skins, but it is a difficult task to implement

Me too!! It may be nice if we had the option to change the look on our own computers, but I think that color is secondary to content for sure and the content is always stimulating. Thanks for the effort Ron smiley=beer.gif

A bit bright.  But then again, I don't think I'm near the average age of the typical viewer.

Honestly, not sure I can tell a difference... but I tend to read in very different circumstances as the day progresses - bright lights at the office, dark basement when I'm home, etc. so maybe that's why I'm not noticing differences!  Or maybe because I don't have my glasses on...  Roll Eyes

OK, I gotta admit that at first I didn't even notice the change.  But now that I am aware of it I rather like the soft green and brown.  Woodsy colors certainly seem appropriate for this forum!
