    The contrast is poor and the front page looks shoddy.
    *reverts to default color scheme if no one minds*

    I don't like it :( It's too dark, there needs to be more contrast between the background and the text.

    Bunch of fussynuggles the lot of em

    Make it forced pink and green with purple text. Infact just copy any random myspace account, a terror like that'll bring everyone in line ;)

    We're all using a really cool blue one, you're the only one seeing a crap one because you've tortured us with that bloody Will Smith avatar for far too long now! :p

    Soon as i read we could change back i changed. The blue seemed kinda dull/bland to me (though that maybe my colourblindness), but as we can change, no problem with having it as an option

    It's 2/3 blue, 1/3 tan, doesn't look good IMO.

    Haha, you need to hard refresh. Your browser has cached part of the old style.

    Press Ctrl+F5 on the front page :)

    Aahh, it was darker but the text was lighter, that's it :) But there was a better contrast.

    The only thing that bothers me is the need to fix my ****ing avatar every time someone decides to change the colors on a whim. No, I'm not going to use any special themes. It has to fit the default theme. That's what most people will be seeing.

    I think the forum scheme needs to be worked on a bit more.
    Other than that I could grow to like it.

    I hate change with website styles, but after around 5 days I forget about it and dig the new style. It's probably been said but the blue is too dark for the text making it harder to read than the tan.

    I really don't like it, but after being threatened by 15357 with a stapler, I've changed my mind.

    P.S. I don't like it because it looks a bit too dark. Like this is some emo site :/
