Re: What Board style are you using?

Pink? I am frightened and intrigued at the same time!

I use old gray. Poor eyesight leads to boring colour contrasts that do not strain my eyes. Would pink lead to eye strain? Once again, I am frightened and intrigued.

Pink is such a Star Trek color.

Re: What Board style are you using?

New Blue for me. Has been for quite some time now.

Old Grey had developed a meth habit. Got to be more trouble than it was worth.

Re: What Board style are you using?

Pink is for some elete division in Starfleet which we have not seen on screen.

Under water Munitions demolition?

Interior decoration?

Animal control?

Grave digging?

Philosophy?

UM?

Have we seen the Diplomatic corps? I think we've seen the Federation diplomatic Corps but not the Starfleet Diplomatic Corps which is like comparing the US State department to some scary shadowed basement where the Army keeps it's "PR Department".

Re: What Board style are you using?

Funny, I was just wondering how many people used old gray, new blue, etc. Then I see this thread. I use old gray, which is just a weaker blue anyway. I find it easy on the eyes.

Re: What Board style are you using?

I use the gray theme. When reading just a post here or there the colors don't make much difference to me, but if I've been browsing the boards for more than 5 minutes or so, the blue themes start to put strain on my eyes.

I have used monitors, though, on which the gray looks much darker and where with the New Blue theme everything looks almost black.

I've actually been using the purple theme, since we don't have pink:

Big Blue. I wasn't around when it was apparently the default on Trek BBS, but I love it. I find it easier on the eyes than New Blue and Old Gray, especially when I've got f.lux running (which adjusts your monitor's color based on the time of day, really cuts down on the harsh blue).

Re: What Board style are you using?

That is a very pretty purple, Kestra. I'd use that, too!
