    The colors aren't bad but they don't match the banner. And for those of us who sneak in posts while at work, these colors will be hell to hide from the boss.

    Test post to see what my icon looks like against the tan background.

    :( I like the current red and grey colour scheme. You better not change it :mad:

    The one problem that I had with the old color scheme was that the contrast where it said logged in as was not enought. You couldn't tell who you were logged in as.

    This is ugly as...something really really ugly.

    Doesn't match the banner at all, way to bright, and we all look like mods.

    I know those have all been mentioned but this is a case where I feel if I don't say anything the admins will just assume that everyone likes it.

    Then they would make it Board-wide.

    Then I would cry.

    I'll have to jump in with the "too bright" folks on this one.

    The board looks like a rerun of Match Game.

    :confused:

    yes, it's just too bright, and i don't like everyone's name being highlighted, that's just plain wrong

    surely there are other ways to improve on the near perfection of the old look?

    Well, it is a rather nostalgic look for the oldbies, and I was a fan of the original...but after the subdued colors, this sure seems horribly bright. If it's possible, using the header as the background color and another tan/sand/peach that was even darker to contrast it would be great.

    I love the scheme with the tans and blues, but it is a little hard on the eyes.

    I agree with the majority here; definitely too bright.

    Darken the tan colour just a tad... and we're going to need new banners to fit with it, but other than that, it's fine :)

    I tend to prefer somewhat darker colors, or maybe just a white background with a darker, solid colored header. But I will be honest, blue and cream has never really been one of my favorite color schemes.

    If you made the blue and tan a bit darker, I'd be fine with the new color scheme.

    Yeah, make the background a bit darker, and it'd be sweet...

    EDIT: and uh, are we gonna change the backgounds on all the icons to match the background here, or am I gonna have a gray patch behind my clonetrooper?

    No, don't darken the tan, or any stupid stuff like that. There's nothing wrong with red and grey ,leave it red and grey :mad:

    I feel like I stepped into a kindergarden PC game.



    The blue is bad! That's all I have to say! ;)

    Changing the usernames back to black bold is no problem. I actually agree on that one.

    What about the background colours? Any HTML colour code suggestions for what you guys mean by a darker colour?

    We're trying to get away from dark colours, so don't make it too dark. ;)

    Those of you who think it's too bright, God forbid you should see a white background on a Web site. ;)

    I would say a darker blue, say for example this type of blue

    EDIT 2: though I think you should leave the 3SA/NSA forums DARK (since I would hate to see LMM have to deal with a color clash when he designs the banners)

    I like the old colour scheme better because it was less bright and was much easier on the eyes to look at. However, this new colour scheme certainly brings back memories of UBB, that's for sure. :) However, I feel that with this new colour scheme, we would need a new banner as the old one is meant for darker colours, and this colour scheme is really light.

    I don't think the names should be in a new colour, however.

    Nice to see the return of the tan colours (no chance of a return to stars I guess?)

    But please, seriously -- tan and light blue? Bad clash.

    tan and the soft mint green, with brown margins/dividers, like before.
