Re: What Board style are you using?

New Blue. I agree with teacake-- "noble and stately."

I used to use Big Blue. I miss its unabashed garishness, now and then.

Aww sorry, I was just being silly and playing around. There's not actually a purple theme available right now; I simply took a screenshot and played with the colors. I can be slightly terrible sometimes.

My favorite colors are blue, teal and purple so I may have to try the purple. If it doesn't cause eye strain, I may keep it.

Are you using Firefox? If so, use this to change the colors of the site:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/fir...lor-that-site/

I'm sure Chrome has something similar as well. It's easily reversible and doesn't affect the way the board operates at all.

I use it to create a Halloween theme (candy corn colored - orange, yellow, and white) and a Christmas theme (white, green and red) for TBBS sometimes. I'm also a Lakers fan, so I'll do a purple, gold, and white theme occasionally. It's silly but fun.

Oh, and I use Old Grey, since it's easy on the eyes.

This. The blues are oversaturated design trainwrecks that look like they were coded in the 1990s.

How dare you speak of the blues like that. "Trainwrecks"?! Grey doesn't even leave the house!

I am worried that if more people don't vote for the (noble and stately) New Blue it will disappear and be replaced by some kind of vile pink.
New Blue here. The others are just... not my cup of tea.

Re: What Board style are you using?

I'm using New Blue... but only because I find it the best of three rather boring choices. I'd much prefer a beige or white background with black text for posts, with something more colorful for the page background.

There's a board style chooser?! WTF, live and learn!

Gray for me it is, then. New Blue is classiest, but it does get hard on the eyes. Dark brown text on a papyrus background would be ideal... I may have to play around with that add-on Locutus mentioned...
