    I refer, of course, to our new forum skin.

    It's absolutely terrible. It looks like a ZX81 made of solid lead.

    Make it stop. [​IMG]

    Better than the last one.

    Maybe the text is slightly too bright though.

    I think it looks tidy and neat, but its somewhat drab and the text needs working on.

    someone should make a poll with the poll options being a different skin (with pics) and that way i suppose we would win.

    Fine, I'll just smear my head in shaving cream. Maybe that will numb the pain.

    The text is a bit too bright, I see it for a few seconds after moving my eyes away from the screen :p

    I agree that this skin is worse than the last one.

    As Samon said, it does look a lot tidier, however it hurts the eyes a little at first, but it'll do :p

    I really dont like this one...its so many different stuff with different colors that make everything look so messy.

    For example, the text is now white...a big change. I rather have the old one.

    Anyway, i think you guys do a good job working on the site, but it would be better if you let the members vote

    Black text on a black background. That's the way to go.

    No, I don't like this. It makes me wince when I read too long.

    This is awful. I'm sure I'll get used to it, but I don't want to get used to it. :(

    bloody women, i didn't even notice it had changed, its not much different. You'll get used to it. Looks fine tbh.

    Oh and whoever questions freedom of choice, it never existed, the forum rules differ from real life. Now get in my van! :sleep:

    Munro, we know you love us, but you don't have to copy our forum colour scheme.

    EDIT: although this is slightly less brown
