    Brazbit Nah... It can't be.

    At first I didn't like the dithered look and it felt really plain then after looking at it for a bit I realized it was very easy for me to read. Since the bulk of the time spent on GA is reading that far outweighs style in my book.

    My particular vision issue gives me headaches reading black on white. The dithering solves the issue for me without having to go so dark that you end up with white on black which doesn't work well for Love Hound. I really like this one.

    Oh yeah!!! Very readable!!! I'd go for that in a New York minute without even seeing the other choices.

    I had been pessimistic yesterday, figuring you'd go to a white-on-black theme, and I had pretty much decided that I wouldn't mind being online less, but it would be nice to not lose GA since I think the forum is actually a very interesting place.

    I don't mistake this topic as being any kind of vote or poll, but I urge you to adopt the theme linked above. :)

    Techie2000 The crowd would sing:

    I second Lovehound's nomination. I believe that this design manages to advance sound design principles with great readability.

    Blackteal would get my vote.

    Yeah, readability is the important thing for me. It's better for people with older eyes, and less fatiguing for those with younger eyes. I can't think of any down side to that.

    I am with Techie and Lovehound. That is very easy on the eyes.

    First, thank you ALL for going through all the styles and giving us a better feel to what people wanted. Unfortunately, black background had to be scrapped due to people's visions. The most common denominator were the two below.

    I added a poll to the thread. It's going to be either

    Light Dithered

    Make that choice.

    What happened to this one? http://vbskins.com/forums/?styleid=28

    It appears both your choices are the same theme... It might be a good idea to link the theme choices from within the poll.

    (I can't find where it gives the name of theme #28 above.)

    Thanks, fixed.

    Out of those 2 final choices I'm not to keen on either one but I guess I'll have to learn to live with one of them.

    Sorta like an election not too long ago.

    I voted for Black Teal. I think the other choice is too bland and boring.

    Plus, I'm still trying to figure out how you even came up with that one as the second choice because I only saw it listed as a choice by people like 3 or 4 times. Other themes were mentioned more.

    No biggie of course, just curious. :)

    Only Dev would be fine. I don't like dark backgrounds with light letters. It's hard on older eyes. Thanks.

    Dithered is fine too. I'll vote for that one in the poll.
