I just logged in again (after some time) and I like the looks already.

The feel? Well, time will learn.

You can have any color you like,...as long as it's blue.

Maybe we should start a new thread, and those who would like a colour scheme that is easier on their particular eyes can submit already working examples from other forums to give us a better starting point.

There are many things more important to get fixed, but our continued goal is to make this forum a member of the set of creme when it comes to internet forums.

Ugh,

I much prefer the current color scheme. (And I wouldn't agree that the referenced site color scheme is warm. In FF on my linux based system the site is rendered in grayish tones with a hint of brown, visually bland to my eye...) Too bad there isn't some way to change preferences locally so that you can have what you like and I can have what I like. I think the scheme referenced is quite unattractive, and I'm not trying to be mean - I'm just saying that everyone has their preferences and the one chosen for diyaudio is a pretty good compromise. I'm sure there is something I would like even better and that you might like even less.

I think the current scheme is just fine as compromises go, but either way I am more interested in the generally excellent content here.

I always thought DIYAudio was one of the better-looking forums out there

I believe, that if changes to colour scheme are made, that this is how things would work.

For reference i am attaching a snapshot here... i personally think that this is an alternate skin that keeps the basic feel of the forum. More examples anyone?
